Engineering edtech startup Skill-Lync announced its partnership with MathWorks to train more than 10000 engineering students and graduates in the next 3 years. The collaboration will ensure that students have access to best-in-class technology and tools required to succeed in their Digital Engineering careers across sectors – including Automotive, Electric Vehicles, Medical Equipment, and Telecom. Skill-Lync students would get access to MathWorks’ tools, such as MATLAB & Simulink, to successfully complete their project work and would also be certified by MathWorks upon completion of the program.
MathWorks is the leading developer of mathematical computing software. MATLAB, the language of engineers and scientists, is a programming environment for algorithm development, data analysis, visualization, and numeric computation. Simulink is a block diagram environment for simulation and Model-Based Design of multidomain and embedded engineering systems. Engineers and scientists worldwide rely on these product families to accelerate the pace of discovery, innovation, and development in automotive, aerospace, electronics, financial services, biotech-pharmaceutical, and other industries. MATLAB and Simulink are also fundamental teaching and research tools in the world’s top universities and learning institutions.
Krishna Bandaru, Chief Business Office, Skill-Lync remarked that “We are glad to have MathWorks on board for our flagship Electric Vehicle coursework and it strengthens the value proposition for our learners. We are committed to providing new-age careers for our learners and thereby creating a robust talent ecosystem for the Electric Vehicle industry”.
Skill-Lync is India’s leading edtech company focused on providing industry relevant and job leading courses for Engineering students/graduates across all disciplines. ~20000 students from all parts of India are pursuing coursework that has been curated with global industry experts and validated by 300+ hiring partners. Students after completion of coursework pursue engineering careers in the fields of Electric Vehicles, Embedded Systems, Automotive Cybersecurity, Medical Equipment, Autonomous Vehicles & 5G Telecom.
Speaking about the partnership, Sunil Motwani, Country Manager, Sales and Services MathWorks India, said, “MathWorks is delighted to partner with Skill Lync. Organizations across various industries use MathWorks tools to accelerate their pace of engineering and research. The partnership with Skill Lync on the Hybrid Electric Vehicles course offers students an engaging combination of domain knowledge, industry-standard tools, and expert trainers to help them gain skills that will prepare them for their careers. We are invested in expanding this collaboration to more courses in other industries, including med-tech, wireless, and autonomous driving.”
Craig Santos, Senior Director, Worldwide Training Services, MathWorks, added, “MathWorks is deeply committed to growing engineering students’ skills to help them realize their true potential. Our strategic collaboration complements Skill Lync’s application and industry-based offerings with in-depth MathWorks tools training. Together, we hope to engage thousands of students and make them industry-ready.”
Skill-Lync was launched in April 2015 by Suryanarayanan P (CEO) and Sarangarajan V (CTO) to address the lack of quality and application-based learning in the Indian undergraduate engineering education system. It is currently focused on providing students with two different models, available both online and offline:
● 6-12 month post-graduate courses focused on providing in-depth industry-relevant technical knowledge to students along with a strong portfolio of projects that are aimed to help them get relevant jobs
● 6-Month programs at physical Skill-Centers, where the students are provided with access to hands-on practical experience and are equipped with industry-relevant skills from the experts
