NEAT-AICTE partners with EdTech startup Skill-Lync to provide technical training

May 25, 2020

New Delhi [India], May 25 (NewsVoir/ANI): In an attempt to ensure that there is no hiatus in student education during the ongoing lockdown, Govt of India's All India Council of Technical Education - NEAT announced partnership with Chennai based Edtech startup Skill-Lync.
The global startup Skill-Lync is first-of-its-kind engineering technical education platform that provides job leading courses for mechanical, electrical and civil engineering students in India and across the world.
During COVID19 outbreak, under this partnership, Skill-Lync has opened up its Rs 50,000 worth mechanical engineers essentials program to students from AICTE. Interestingly, they've had over 15000 subscribers to their free online coursework in the last two weeks itself and the number is growing by the day.
Given the extended at-home learning requirements that the industry is catering to, this partnership is aimed at accelerating the online learning process for mechanical, electrical and civil engineering students.
Until now most computer science students had access to coding platforms that taught them industry relevant skills. But a lot of non-software core engineering domains missed out on this. This also accelerates the adoption of online learning for non-software engineering domains.
There is a great amount of push from the government to safeguard student education including professional and technical skills. Recently, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman announced the immediate launch of 'Pradhan Mantri e-VIDYA' initiative for digital education which is likely to give a boost to Edtech startups across the nation.
