Edtech start-up Skill-Lync, which helps upskill engineering students, announced the launch of its offline PG Program in Embedded Software Development & Validation for EV Applications in partnership with Cyient at the start-up’s Chennai skill centre. Given the tremendous response to its online course, Skill-Lync is now replicating this unique coursework offline. The course is a six-month-long program where the curriculum will focus on development, testing & validation, which are critical requirements for acquiring technical core jobs. It will include flexible courses keeping pace with the dynamic industry requirement in the Automotive and Electric Vehicle sector. Along with the availability of onsite subject matter experts for one-on-one guidance, a student will also get a hardware kit that will help enhance their hands-on experience.
Certified by the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), Skill-Lync will provide unlimited access to courses and software access for the offline version. Students will also work on numerous industry-oriented projects to help them apply their skills and build a great portfolio in embedded electronics. These students will be eligible to apply for job placement after completing 45 days of the six-month program, with Cyient being one of the hiring clients.
Surya Narayanan PaneerSelvam, Co-Founder of Skill-Lync, said, “We received an exemplary demand from students to launch our programs offline. We wanted the course to be highly beneficial to students in terms of learning tech skills and hands-on experience with relevant hardware and software. We partnered with Cyient, who is planning to hire 500+ embedded engineers and has also co-developed the course. While rapid adoption of online learning will continue, offline programmes will enhance learning and solve real-time queries in-person through interaction and project work.”
Previously, Skill-Lync had launched a curriculum on Embedded Systems Development and Validation defined by Cyient to bridge the skill gap and reduce the training costs for the incoming workforce. The start-up also provided 500 Embedded trained professionals to meet the requirements defined by Cyient.
Additionally, Skill-Lync has revolutionised engineering education by bridging the skill gap between students and the industry. It has established itself as a credible partner for organisations looking at building an upskilled talent pool and providing job offers to engineering students after completing the course.
