Pega University programme, jointly offered by Pegasystems and edtech company TalentSprint, said it has so far helped about 10,000 engineering students get jobs in the last seven years. The two-semester programme, which started with two colleges six years ago, now covers 18 colleges in different states in the country, equipping students with skills required to work on the Pega platform.
The programme, offered to engineering college students in their third year, will help students work on low-code technologies to improve their employability. The programme involves over 300 hours of hands-on experiential learning offered by qualified instructors.
“The programme has been effective in creating certified, ready-to-deploy young software engineers,” Deepak Visweswaraiah, Vice-President (Platform Engineering), and Site Managing Director, Pegasystems, India, said here in a statement on Monday.
“We have partnered with more than 24 global blue-chip companies to conduct exclusive placement drives, resulting in a consistent placement rate of over 80 per cent. By the end of the financial year, about 10,000 students would have benefited from this programme,” he said.
The company targets to get placements to 1,600 students in 2023. Santanu Paul, CEO and MD, TalentSprint, said that the programme holds a 95 per cent certification rate.
