Google India has entered into a partnership with the National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC), a PPP enterprise under the Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship (MSDE), to train students on creating applications for Android users.
The developers training team of Google has created a classroom-based course “Android Developer Fundamentals” to be offered as an elective course for students to take at more than 20 private and state technical universities across India. The course will also be offered by partner universities and training centers of the NSDC.
“Android Developer Fundamentals is intended for computer science and engineering undergraduate students who have already learned the Java programming language,” Google said.
The course includes five teaching units: Get started, User experience, Working in the background, All about data and What’s next.
“Throughout the course, students learn basic Android programming concepts and build a variety of apps, working their way up to apps that use content providers and loaders,” Google said.
In India, Andhra Pradesh State Skill Development Corporation (APSSDC) is already offering this course in association with Colleges of Engineering, and other colleges associated with JNTU Anantapur, JNTU Kakinada, Andhra University, SV University and AN University.
