The State Government of Andhra Pradesh
has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Google India to train engineering students in the state in latest technologies such as mobile development and cloud computing.
Google will work with students of Jawahar Knowledge Centres (JKC), a government initiative that set up training and infrastructure centres at more than 30 colleges in the state, aiming to bridge the gap between industry and academia.
Google training in emerging technologies including cloud computing and mobile will help students meet industry requirements, and position them for better employment opportunities upon graduation.
Trainers and mentors in the Andhra Pradesh Society for Knowledge Networks, the government organization running JKCs in the state, will also receive training and technological support from Google, including software, services, and training material.
Google has set up a research and development centre in the state capital of Hyderabad, on 20 acres of land given by the state government. The company is planning to recruit more than 3000 professionals for this centre.
