Development and progress both are truly depends on knowledge dissemination and cultivation. Emerging technologies are the key pillar for complete industrial solutions; and ultimately for the building of solid industrial society. Moreover, it is an important step in reaching knowledge society development. Educational programs and courses play a greater role in such development. Social development is purely related economic progress and that is related to the educational delivery. In developing and underdeveloped countries, a true knowledge delivery system helps in the promotion of all respects and shorts. Information Technology is responsible for solid business solutions and improved business, product thus depends on education. Several computing and information technology products were developed in our recent past. Cloud Computing, Green Computing, Data Science, Internet of Things (IoT), Business Analytics, etc. are the important name in this regard and countries like China, India, South Africa etc. are doing well for solid infrastructure development. India is one of the largest educational hubs in the world with about 40,000+ HEIs (Higher Educational Institutes), but still there are lots of programs are missing in Indian academics. However, it is important to note that, India has huge potential to offer Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral Degrees in these areas with the use of proper and emerging educational policies and strategies. It is some extend true that India fails to offer such dynamic and up-to-date programs in some context. This paper is painted the running programs in India and also depicted possible nomenclature and program with industrial environment and context as per the international trends. The future potential of such program has been depicted with SWOT for making a true Digital India with smartest and effective way.
