Microsoft Innovation Center


Microsoft is the sole owner of the Microsoft Innovation Centers (MICs). Microsoft Innovation Centers are state of art technology facilities for collaboration on innovative research, technology or software solutions, involving a combination of government, academic and industry participants. MICs and NGF College of Engineering & Technology (NGFCET) through Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agree to promote education and hereby express their intentions to collaborate in new Microsoft technologies and software.

The Microsoft Innovation Center is helping us accelerate the development of new projects in a way that we never could before. NGF and MIC both are agreed to develop Windows App Development Program and Windows Mobile App Development Program which include many courses such as learning of Visual Studio C++, Window Azure and Microsoft Cloud Computing. MICs and NGFCET are working on the collaborative and educational activities in the academic areas of mutual interest, on a basis of equality and reciprocity.

MIC Primary Areas of Focus

Skills and Intellectual Capital: The Skills Accelerator focuses on intellectual capital and people enablement with software, business management and marketing courses, software development courses, and employment programs for students.

The MICs do this by offering programs on partnering with Microsoft, and by cultivating local and regional industry alliances that support the growth of software ‘industry clusters’ and software quality assurance programs.
