Amazon plans to launch Education Computer Science Program in India

Amazon plans to launch its childhood-to-career Future Engineer program in India, a tip for posting work. The project, which was launched in the US last January, aims to finance computer science classes to help students learn coding and computer skills. In India, Amazon is currently recruiting a manager to lead the Amazon Future Engineer program.

The new development comes almost a year after CEO Jeff Bezos visited the country and revealed the company’s $1 billion (approximately Rs. 7,319 crores) investment in the country to digitize the country’s small and medium enterprises. The work posting, first mentioned by TechCrunch, suggests that sometime in 2021, Amazon is preparing to launch the Future Engineer program in India.

The initial research is currently underway for Amazon Future Engineer in India, and we are looking for the chosen candidate to dive deeply into operationalizing the program to what is relevant to India and the needs of students, the company said in its posting.

Each year, the Amazon Future Engineer program is advertised to educate students from “underrepresented and underserved” populations. It contains Rs. 7,32,000 scholarships that are granted each year to 100 students. The organization also states that after their first year of college, it provides a guaranteed, paid internship at its office to scholarship recipients.

With the most recent $1 billion investment announced in January, Amazon has already committed to investing over $6.5 billion (approximately Rs. 47,586 crores) in the country. As an e-commerce business, it initially began local operations, although the Seattle, Washington-based company recently expanded its footprint in the Indian area.

Earlier this year, the organization also promised to create as many as a million new jobs in the country by 2025. Amazon released an app named JEE Ready in July last year, which was recently rebranded as Amazon Academy. It is intended to help students prepare for the IIT-JEE, an Indian engineering exam.

Companies like Google and Microsoft have long shown an interest in Amazon-like Indian students. Also earlier this year, Facebook invested in the education start-up Unacademy and recently joined with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE, in its Spanish initials) to host accredited digital security and reality education for students throughout the country.

There are more than 1.5 million schools and 250 million children in the world, according to data given by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). This gives a firm like Amazon a solid reason to look at the educational system of the country to improve its business.

However, Amazon is currently working hard to grow its e-commerce business in the region, aside from planning to invest in the education sector. In October, the firm injected Rs. 700 crores into its Indian subsidiary to raise revenue during the festive season. To maintain its presence even during the coronavirus lockdown in the region, it also explored new models, including home delivery of liquor.
