Yet another feather has been added to our cap. EMURGO Academy is extremely thrilled to announce that we have a synergistic collaboration with PSG College of Technology in Coimbatore. A collaboration that will be extremely helpful in moulding the future talent pool of Blockchain from its grassroots level. Blockchain is the most talked-about technology that has caught everyone’s attention, and inquisitive students want to be equipped with the skills to work on this emerging technology before embarking on their career plans.
EMURGO Academy, the education arm of EMURGO, is a strategic setup to nurture, groom and harness blockchain talent, to enable them to be ready to work in the Blockchain Industry. EMURGO Academy Ignitive Labs offers an internationally aligned curriculum, designed by subject matter experts from the industry provide a holistic understanding of blockchain technology and trains through a blended learning approach. The Academy offers an opportunity for the students to be part of their R&D, by leveraging its position within the Industry. Students get access to employers across the globe through its internationally accredited digital certificate. Performance tracking, evaluation and screening will help them gain internship opportunities and junior fellowship programs.
Commenting on this new partnership, Mr E Venkatesan, CEO, EMURGO Academy said, “Blockchain technology is gradually gaining momentum in both public and private sectors in India. We are already witnessing an increased demand for blockchain experts and we are sure, it will grow further in the future. However, India is still facing a talent demand and supply gap and it can only be addressed when we have more students enrolling for these courses and get trained. EMURGO Academy Ignitive Labs aims to train students who are willing to explore their career in blockchain space and make them industry-ready.”
It is our intention and mission to spread the need for Blockchain learning within campuses and we plan to facilitate this learning through Incubators. Colleges get the opportunity to be at the forefront of educational transformation and put their name on the Global Blockchain map.
Speaking about his association Dr K. Prakasan, Principal (In-charge), PSG College of Technology shared, “New age technologies are playing a key role in transforming the tech and other sectors in India. With a mission to provide a world-class education to our students and introducing them to innovative and advanced technology for their better future, we are planning to introduce the blockchain course in association with EMURGO Academy. We are sure that our students will benefit from this course and will be the future innovators in the blockchain space”.
A collaboration of this scale is a huge milestone, but this is just the start, and EMURGO Academy will be working towards bringing many more colleges within the Blockchain fold, empowering students to be future-ready.
