NASSCOM Foundation and ALTRAN (Capgemini) is currently accepting applications from women engineering graduates for an IT Skilling and Employability Enhancement Program called “She Arise”. The training program aims at helping women engineers build a career in big data, cloud, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and other new-age technologies.
“Equitable opportunities for education and economic empowerment are intertwined with women’s right to live with dignity. Nothing, more than education and meaningful employment, has the potential of breaking down the walls built around women. Education is instrumental in helping women defy stereotypes which may block their potentially bright future,” says the NASSCOM Foundation website.
The program is open to women engineering candidates who are unplaced and have a BTech or MTech degree in computer science engineering, information technology, electronics and communication engineering and electrical and electronics engineering, BE computer science or MCA graduates from the class of 2018-19 or 2019-2020.
Rural, urban-rural, EBB, or underprivileged female beneficiaries with less than 5 lakh annual family income can apply for the program. Applications are being accepted from all eligible candidates from all across the country.
Applications will first be screened to check the eligibility of the women engineering graduates, interviews will be conducted, and then the final selection for the training program will begin. Interested candidates may apply for the training program on the official website.
