SmartBridge, a skilling platform, has collaborated with Google to reinvent project-based learning and virtual internships in India’s educational landscape. This partnership is initiated through the Google for Developers India Edu programme. Through this initiative, SmartBridge aims to empower students and teaching staff with cutting-edge technology, focusing on Machine Learning with TensorFlow and Android app development.
SmartBridge and Google’s collaboration will allow students to gain hands-on experience with the latest Google technologies, equipping them with valuable skills for future careers. The collaboration will also enable project-based learning, ensuring students apply theoretical knowledge to real-world scenarios.
SmartBridge aims to establish strong industry-academia relationships to provide a long-term talent pipeline for the emerging industry. Before starting their first employment, the platform offers young people appropriate skill deployment and training. “SmartInternz,” the startup’s cutting-edge EdTech platform, catalyzes facilitating collaboration between academics and industry. The company empowers students to cultivate the essential technical and professional skills required to become job-ready candidates by providing project-based, collaborative learning solutions intricately woven into the curriculum. Its immersive learning journey equips students with the necessary expertise to excel in their chosen careers.
Speaking about the development, Garima Mehra, Programme Manager, Google, said:
SmartBridge’s collaboration with Google for the Developers India Edu programme has been significant in scaling the learning experience and reach for Android app development and Machine Learning with TensorFlow to over 400 institutions across India. With their unique programme design and significant engagement of faculty, mentors, and institutions, the SmartBridge team has successfully supported students’ outcomes. We look forward to further collaborations with the SmartBridge team to provide the most recent Google technology to Indian universities and students.
Furthermore, students can work on live projects, engage with industry professionals, and obtain practical experience in college through virtual internship opportunities. Faculty and mentors from partner institutions will also be involved in the partnership, creating a supportive environment for student’s growth and development.
SmartBridge is committed to a historic talent mission: to deliver “1 Million Virtual Internships” in various in-demand technologies. The organization’s goal is to help companies identify job-ready personnel and play a key role in developing India’s flourishing gig economy.
