As an enhancement to their existing partnership, EC-Council University has signed a historic MoU, for the larger benefit of the students of Ganpat University. The MoU will fortify the students’ career prospects and enable them to gain international exposure through its unique offerings.
The Cyber Tech Center will provide Ganpat University students the resources required to upgrade their current cybersecurity skillset. This Cyber Tech Center will also serve as a hub for cyber gaming and industry interface programs. That’s not all. Through this initiative, EC-Council University is confident that soon the students at Ganpat University will possibly represent India at the Global Cyberlympics.
Jay Bavisi, Chairperson of EC-Council University and President of EC-Council Group, Abel Daniel, Academic Alliances (International) of EC-Council University, and Dr. Mahendra Sharma, Pro-Chancellor of Ganpat University inaugurated the Cyber Tech Center at Ganpat University on September 26, 2019.

ECCU is looking forward to building a strong cybersecurity team which will represent India in the next Global Cyberlympics.”
