Gurugram, India, February 27, 2020: Nagarro, a global leader in software engineering and technology solutions, recently started a programming skill build-up program, the "Career Boot Camp," in collaboration with Coding Blocks, an independent training company. The live training program is aimed to build programming skills of the students from tier 3 colleges and this initiative is focused on making students industry-ready while on campus. The training provides hands-on experience and exposure to the industry through work and study programs and focuses on a problem-solving approach to learning new concepts.
The program offers live online classes and video content focusing on problem-solving by teaching data structures and algorithms. Around 1,300 students from more than 100 colleges participated in the selection process, and 267 students made it to the candidate list. The live sessions started in Jan 2020, and the course curriculum has 24 online classes and module tests in the end. Students clearing the module tests shall be offered an internship at Nagarro based on their performance.
"We want to help build programming skills of students who seek opportunities not based on their college name but through their skills. The focus is on learning with a problem-solving outlook, something which our college education seriously lacks today," says Manmohan Gupta, co-founder of Nagarro.
The boot camp program benefits students by helping them engage early with Nagarro, get access to industry experts for guidance, and be placement ready with technical craftsmanship.
About the career boot camp program
The program focuses on learning concepts through problem-solving, an approach that is lacking in our existing college education structure. Along with training students with the latest technologies and programming languages, the program also aims to connect them with software companies via the placement assistance program. Students currently in their 6th semester of Btech/BE are eligible to appear for the selection process. A basic aptitude and coding test is conducted and the shortlisting is done on the basis of performance in these tests. You can reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org for any queries.
