New Delhi: Y-combinator backed edtech startup for advanced engineering courses – Skill-Lync, announces their career programs at a discounted price for Women to honour and help the Women in engineering. Under this initiative, female engineers will be able to enroll in any Skill-Lync short-term course for INR 5000 and get a 50% discount on any of their Master’s programs, this offer is valid only till March 31st. It is aimed to empower and encourage women engineers to upskill themselves and find their dream jobs in the engineering and technology sector.
The employment rate of women has dropped from 35% in 2005 to 26% in 2018. It is high time for India to step up and highlight this massive gap. This initiative of Skill-Lync aims to provide discounted courses to aspiring women engineers and act as an impetus for female engineering students and graduates to upskill themselves and get their dream jobs in the engineering and technology sectors.
“Our mission with these discounted courses is to highlight and bridge the massive gap between the male-to-female ratio in engineering firms. Skill-Lync’s intensive, industry-oriented, project based curriculum would help women acquire the right skills and help them kickstart their dream careers. Apart from the curriculum, our individualised technical support and placement assistance will also make sure that female engineers get the best out of these courses”, said Suryanarayanan P, Co-Founder and CEO at Skill-Lync.
Skill-Lync was officially founded in April 2018 by Suryanarayanan P(CEO) and Sarangarajan V(CTO). They both had their first hand impact due to the lack of quality and application-based learning in the Indian undergraduate education system. To address this problem, Skill-Lync was launched as a YouTube channel which shared engineering tips, and today it is a platform that provides advanced engineering courses. It provides different types of courses, ranging from one-off modules to full-time curriculums.
