IIT Madras, L&T EduTech Collaborate to Launch Joint Skilling Programmes for Engineering, Science Students

The Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT M) will be collaborating with L&T EduTech, the digitally-driven learning initiative by Larsen & Toubro, to launch industry skilling programmes for engineering and science students across India.

This initiative is being launched with the aim to bridge the gap that is required to make the students ‘industry ready.’ It will offer customised programmes for professionals across the industry to upskill themselves and achieve career progression. Pravartak Technologies will bring in experts from various engineering and science departments of IIT Madras while L&T EduTech will provide the industry expertise.

Each of these courses will provide conceptual learning supported by engineering applications. All participants will be exposed to fundamentals of engineering along with industry-relevant knowledge derived from engineering practice.

Experts are aiming to reach 25,000 students annually. These courses are being offered in a hybrid mode.

The details about the programmes will be shortly announced on their respective websites and social media accounts by the end of May 2023.

“IIT Madras and L&T group have been jointly developing various technology and skilling programs across departments. Our flagship program ‘BIS’ (Build India Scholarship) is a great success. We are now taking a step forward with this relationship to address the skill gap between academia and industry through certification programs. These programs are carefully designed by experts from Industry as well as academia with equal importance to theory and hands-on sessions. It is designed for professionals and fresh graduates in core engineering and IT/ITES for their upskilling, cross-skilling and reskilling. We are looking forward to a great partnership,” said Prof. V. Kamakoti, Director, IIT Madras.
