Maximizing Students Potential: Akal University’s SDP on NoSQL and MongoDB

Student Development Programs (SDP) are essential for the Skill enhancement of students.
Akal University has an excellent vision of rural development and women empowerment. And by providing access to scientific and tech education to students living in rural India, Akal University is liberating students’ paths.
Akal University successfully organized an SDP on Introduction to NoSQL architecture using MongoDB to give students an in-depth understanding of NoSQL databases and their usage in modern-day applications.

Significance of NoSQL and SDP

NoSQL database is a key value database. It is a system for storing and getting data. It is used as an alternative to traditional relational databases. NoSQL variations exist, such as MongoDB, Amazon, DocumentDB, Google Datastore, and AmazonDynamoDB.
MongoDB is a Free and open-source cross-platform document-oriented Database. MongoDB is used for replication of data, load balancing, file storage, aggregation, and capped collections and supports multi-document ACID transactions. A high volume of data is available today, and data management has become highly significant. And to make unstructured data relevant, MongoDB is required.

Akal University Empowering Students

Akal University’s Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) offers B. Tech. (CSE- Data Science and AI/ML), BCA (Data Analytics and AI/ML) and Ph.D. Science.
The Department of CSE facilitated the students with a scheduled course of SDP on Introduction to NoSQL Architecture with MongoDB in collaboration with EICT Academy IIT Kanpur.
The SDP was designed from 17 April to 21 April.
150 students from various colleges and universities attended the program.

Meeting the Demands of Today’s Tech World

The program was started with the inaugural address with
Maj Gen (Dr.) G S Lamba, Dean of Academic Affairs,
and Mr. Mukesh Kumar, marketing Industry head EICT Academy.
Mr. Anoop Kumar from the EICT Academy was the resource person for the SDP program.

The SDP course counters the demand of today’s tech world. Over seven days, the fundamentals of NoSQL databases, their benefits over traditional relational databases, and the various types of NoSQL databases, particularly MongoDB, were introduced to the students. It delves into the actual life application of databases in business, academics, and other tasks. The course explored the project lifecycles, building data models using MongoDB to draw business insights.

Students learned to use MongoDB, including installation, data modeling, querying, and administration.
Additionally, the students got practical experience with MongoDB by working on real-world use cases and building sample applications.
The course was approached by beginners to advanced level strategy. It aimed to develop an excellent and fair understanding of MongoDB by the end learners.


The students appreciated the practical and hands-on approach to learning in the program. The sessions were informative, engaging, and valuable for their future careers. The program was also praised for its comprehensive coverage of MongoDB, which gave the students a thorough understanding of the database.
The organizers expressed their satisfaction with the program and thanked the students for their enthusiastic participation. They also expressed gratitude to the experts who led the sessions and made the program successful.


More efficient Technological advancement is taking place across the globe. It is crucial to stay updated with the latest trends and tools. NoSQL databases are gaining popularity as a substitute for traditional relational databases in modern-day applications. Students and professionals in the IT sector must increasingly understand these databases and know how to use them.

SDP on Introduction to NoSQL architecture using MongoDB, organized by the Department of CSE at Akal University, Talwandi Sabo, in collaboration with EICT Academy, IIT Kanpur, was a great success.

Akal University will continue similar programs in the future to help students stay updated with the latest trends and technologies in the industry.
