Google ties up with Udacity, Tata to offer online IT degrees in India

Costing Rs9,800 a month, the degrees will take between six and nine months to complete, with lessons from Google instructors based in the United States.

Search engine giant Google and online education company Udacity on Monday launched IT courses in India, branching outside the US to tap the country’s millions of software developers scrambling for jobs.

The pair teamed with Indian conglomerate Tata to offer online technical training courses, focusing on teaching software developers to build apps for Android, the Google-backed mobile operating system.

Costing Rs9,800 ($148) a month, the degrees will take between six and nine months to complete, with lessons from Google instructors based in the United States. Students will get 50% of tuition costs back on graduation.

Google is looking to cash in on skilling up many of India’s 3.6 million developers, the second largest number worldwide, while at the same time seeking more developers who can programme for Android devices.

“While India has millions of software developers, we still lag behind in creating world-class apps,” Google India managing director Rajan Anandan told reporters in India’s IT hub of Bangalore.

The companies will also offer 1,000 scholarships and all graduates will be invited to a job fair next year hosted by Google in India.
