The NorthCap University (NCU) continues to be the leader amongst the private Universities in Delhi & Haryana in the NIRF ranking, conducted by Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India for the year 2020. The University has been ranked 110 in the Engineering category (Leading Private University in Haryana). Due to advancements in technologies in recent years, the University has taken numerous steps to reduce the gap between the Industry and Academia. Among the significant steps, BTech (CSE) has been introduced with various specializations. One of the specializations is Full Stack Development. Nowadays, Full stack Development is gaining rapid pace as an important professional skill for IT professionals. A Full Stack Web Developer is an expert who works on all phases of software development from beginning to end. Various aspects of Web Development are front-end, back-end, databases, version control, and so on. Companies are looking to recruit Full Stack Web Developers who are specialists in all areas of application development. The preference is given to people like a designer, programmer, and software expert who can play multiple roles. Specialist with particular subsystems, such as front-end or back end only, can't fully comprehend the broader view of the whole system development. However, it is difficult and time-intensive if several professionals are collaborating for the development of application software. Teamwork and scheduling also become a matter of importance.

At NCU, all through this vital specialization which is specifically crafted to provide a solid base for a good career to students. This helps students to articulate the concepts from theory with extensive practical knowledge through lab and projects for keeping industry requirements in place. The curriculum is designed appropriately with our industry partners which sets a firm foundation for a successful career pathway in this region. The courses under this specialization are designed exclusively in accordance with industry standards. This specialization provides a lot of exposure to the development process through practical applications and projects. It helps students to become an expert at Front-end and Back-end technologies by employing the most popular JAM (Java, Angular and MongoDB) Stack. It provides exposure to a broad range of technologies. With this specialization, students get the opportunity to solve non-trivial real-time problems and learn to create complex Server and Client-side web applications. The main objective is to align the students with short industrial projects in collaboration with industry experts. This specialization provides in-depth knowledge of the latest frameworks like spring, hibernate. It helps in building a path to a more lucrative and creative career in emerging technologies. This specialization provides brighter prospects for students to get more jobs in various industrial sectors and helps students to grab good placements with higher packages. The University is working very hard for industry readiness of students with an appropriate skill set.

A full-stack developer requires technical expertise and the opportunity to focus on the different technologies used during developing software. Some of the technologies are as follows:

· Programming languages like Java
· Front end technologies like HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, JavaScript
· Backend technologies like MongoDB, Hibernate
· Working with Version Control Systems
· Servers
· UI/UX Design

Due to digitization and use of software solutions among various industries, Full-Stack Developers are in high demand. A full-stack developer works on building techniques for each part of the process of web development. Therefore, a full stack developer capability is hard to obtain and individuals with these abilities are strongly in demand in the industry. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the availability of jobs in Full Stack Development will rise from 135,000 to more than 853,000 by 2024.
