Mission R&D is an innovative initiative with the mission to “Contribute to the growth of India’s R&D ecosystem by developing the most promising technology students, especially women, and by supporting the talent needs of product companies including start-ups".
There are some fundamental issues with our current engineering education model. Static curriculum, theory oriented approach, exam centric learning model is resulting in students graduating with poor knowledge of fundamentals and lack of preparation for real world software development roles. Although more than 300,000 engineers graduate in computer science and related fields each year from about 3500 engineering colleges, many are unemployable, and a very small number of them qualify for R&D roles. There are some fundamental issues with our current engineering education model. Static curriculum, theory oriented approach and a exam-centric learning model usually results in students graduating with poor knowledge of fundamentals and a lack of preparation for real world software development roles.
Mission R&D believes that there are many intelligent, hard-working, motivated students in all colleges who can be transformed into world class R&D engineers with the right training. Started by people who have many years of global product development experience, Mission R&D aims to transform the students and put them on the path of a rewarding R&D career. Our program helps the students gain expertise in computer science fundamentals, professional software development tools and latest programming platforms, giving them confidence and unleashing their inherent potential.
Mission R&D teaches students 'The art of learning' which will help them have a long and fruitful career in the software industry where change is the only constant.
This course is uniquely designed by Software Giants and Experts that provides invaluable learning techniques in understanding the breadths and depths of Computer Science and Engineering. Here is the general Mission R&D program structure containing mainly 4-phases of training and continuous assessment, that runs over 14 months. Know more...
Online Python Programming
Python is a scripting language which eases the software development by a great margin. The main objective of this course is how well you utilize python libraries and solve problems as quickly as possible.
MRND strongly believes that, to be a great Systems Engineer one has to very efficient in C . We expect students to dive as deep as possible into the internals of C during this course . Algorithm and Complexity Analysis will be an integral part of the course.
FULL STACK APP DEVELOPMENT
Here you will be writing code for the 3-tier architecture of building apps. This includes accessing back-end, handling server-side request-process-response cycle and handling client-side responsive UI. You will learn about how Client-Server Architecture works with the latest frameworks like NodeJS, Django, etc.
This is the most awaiting and crux of MRND course phases, where you will need to use your wits in problem solving, app building or in writing system-level project. Surpassing this 20-day full time summer course will be the end of the program.
Mission R&D is founded by R&D leaders, with background and expertise in developing major software products used by millions of people across the world. The founding team is driven by a passion to transform smart, hardworking, motivated students and prepare them for a rewarding career, thus grow the R&D talent pool in India. One of their key objective is to significantly increase the number of women in R&D roles.
Here we introduce you to the Founders and Faculty of Mission R&D. Know more...
I had very less knowledge on data structures and problem solving techniques before getting into MRND course. In Pre-Summer classes, I got a chance to solve a lot of problems which in turn helped improve my problem solving abilities. It helped me gain practical knowledge regarding many things like time and space complexities. Summer classes had a very good environment where everyone is passionate about learning.We got guidance from the top software professionals in industry. I have learnt many things like effective usage of data structures, how core concepts of computer science are built, working in teams,interacting with people etc. I came to know the real importance of discussions with mentors.I could also pull up my confidence levels to a great extent. With the best software professionals in the industry guiding you at every step, and the best environment where everyone is as smart as you are, I have learnt the beauty of computer science by designing the core concepts like networking, file-systems, etc. using concepts of data structures and problem solving algorithms.
Apart from the technical stuff, this course helped me in understanding the other dimension of life in terms of personal development, how to interact with people and work together. During this course I have gained tremendous amount of confidence which is helping me progress in my career. With a strong motive of “learn how to learn”, this course is a 360 degree view of what happens in a product company.

It helped me a lot in changing my thought process and it helped me to explore and work with new technologies like Cloud Computing especially made me aware of how to work with Windows Azure and Amazon Cloud service providers. Generally, in regular college classes, we will learn the steps of how to build products theoretically but the faculty at Mission R & D made us follow those steps and made us capable of building products like Document Repository. Faculty at Mission R & D made us learn “how to learn”. They made us know how the building of a product happens in the software industries and made us follow that process. They made us work as a team which is essential quality a software professional should possess. The goals of Mission R & D are very clear that they want to transfer the knowledge from a generation of highly qualified R & D professionals to the future generation of software professionals. It made me capable of writing productive and efficient code and gave me confidence that I can build a product of my own. Without enrolling to Mission R & D I may lose a great opportunity to meet such a well qualified professionals and their teaching.

Personally, I had little to no clue as to how the corporate world functioned or what they expected out of a fresher in terms of behavioural or technical aspect. Perseverance is one of the many traits that I acquired in during the pre-summer classes. The exercises and assignments given didn't only improve me on a technical front but also gave me an opportunity to learn things on my own unlike the other institutions where I previously studied in. I expected a steep learning curve technically. During the summer course I experienced a colossal growth, both technically and personally. I was given an opportunity to connect with like minded people who hail from various parts of the state, all having a common and intense objective to acquire a strong hold on the subject they love. The experience helped me in becoming nimble on the technical side, thus enabling me to learn new technologies with ease. The projects given were challenging, fun, educative all at the same time. Working in teams to complete them added to our professionalism by mocking the environment we would face in the corporate world.
The course also encouraged me in building my orative skills in an articulate manner by allowing me to put forth my ideas during the soft skills exercises. It was definitely one of the best things that happened to me, it facilitated an overall development in my professional and personal life as well.
