In order to provide students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds with technological skills that are marketable, Sony India Software Centre Pvt Ltd. and the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT Madras) Pravartak Technologies Foundation teamed up. This training is being provided without charge at all times. Students interested in applying can do so at sonyfs.pravartak.org.in.
Students who graduated in 2020-2021 or 2021–22 and whose parents make less than Rs 8 lakh annually are eligible for Sony India Finishing School Skill Development Training. In addition to business communication abilities, the course will offer instruction in a few other areas, such as artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML), cyber security, and computer graphics.
About six months are needed to complete the course. Full-time instruction will be delivered in physical classrooms supplied by IITM Pravartak Technologies Foundation for this course. Students who successfully complete the training programme will be given certificates.
The top 15 students in this course will receive employment offers from Sony India Software Centre. The Pravartak Technologies Foundation will arrange for the remaining students’ interviews through the IITM PTF placement cell in order to aid in their placement in other businesses.
The selection process is based on the academic standing of engineering graduates who graduated in 2020–2021 or 2021–2022 and had an overall average score of at least 60%.
A written entrance exam would also be given, and an interview would follow. Students are eligible for a stipend offered under the training programme if they pass the evaluation with the highest score.
