“Skill-Lync understands this demand and offers courses in core-engineering education space in fields such as electric vehicle design, embedded systems, autonomous vehicles and aspire to deeply root industry-pertinent skills with engineers across industry,” Mittal added.
The company said it has witnessed a five-time increase in revenue, starting January 2021. “There has been a surge in the demand for electric vehicles, OEM startups and suppliers and is expected to provide 10 million jobs by the end of FY30,” the company said in a statement.
