By the end of 2005, he expected the head count in this center to go up to over 400.
Mr. Raj indicated that STC Technologies would also set up testing centers in Bangalore and Mumbai.

STC Technologies would operate in verticals like BFSI, healthcare, telecom and embedded system.
The STC Technologies- had two outfits, which had a workforce of around 350 people, he added.
STC Technologies solves this problem by partnering with the companies to understanding their needs and imparting the fresher quality training based on the requirements gathered and finally offering placement assistance getting them absorbed into the organizations of their clients.
