Google to train Goenka University students in Android App development

Updated: Jul 21, 2016 12:34 IST

Gurgaon, July 21 (ANI): The G D Goenka University (GDGU) has joined hands with Google to provide world-class Android Developer education to its students.

The partnership, which is part of Google's ambitious Android Skilling Programme in India, will help the University's computer science students build apps and acquire skills needed to get entry-level jobs as Android developers. The course will also make the students eligible to appear in Google's Associate Android Developer Certification exam.

Expressing happiness on the development, the Vice Chancellor of G.D. Goenka University, Prof (Dr) Deependra Kumar Jha, said: "Mobile technology is the future, and this agreement will give our students the skills that they need to go out and compete with the world's best."

As part of this initiative, Google will train the University's Faculty first. It will also share reference materials and provide guidelines for lab exercises (including developer tools),

The main aim of Google's Android Skilling Program is to train 2 million developers in India. As per data shared by Google VP, Mr Caesar Sengupta, only 4% of the top 1,000 Android apps on Play Store come from India, but the country is on its way to becoming one of the largest developer hubs in the world by 2018.

Google believes that with this programme India will become the app hub of the world. (ANI)
