Goa Govt Inks MoU With Newton School
This collaboration aims at making Goa a hub for tech advancements
The Government of Goa on Thursday announced a strategic Digital Goa Scholarship Programme with the Bengaluru-based neo-university Newton School. This partnership would consist of a coding and mindset bootcamp that progresses into a 6-month-long Full-Stack Certification Program, enabling students to become software developers.
Newton School is a neo-university founded in 2019 by Siddharth Maheshwari and Nishant Chanda, graduates from IIT Roorkee. Newton School offers skill-oriented and industry-focussed tech courses to students and help them get placed as software developers and engineers, with their over 2000 hiring partners including companies such as Google, Zomato, Thoughtworks, Xiaomi, Flipkart, Deloitte, Meesho and TCS.
Over the years, India has proven itself to be a technology adopter and developer. This collaboration aims at making Goa a hub for tech advancements where more than 16,000 students graduate every year. It’s expected to have a snowball effect for growth as more global IT firms are expected to hire students from Goa in multiple organisational layers.
