AlmaBetter, a Kalaari-backed global edtech platform, has collaborated with E&ICT Academy, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati. Under this partnership, learners will be able to acquire an advanced certification in Full Stack Data Science and Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Full Stack Web Development. E&ICT Academies are a joint initiative by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), the Government of India, and IIT and NITs. 

With this partnership, E&ICT Academy, IIT Guwahati, and AlmaBetter intend to train learners and improve their employability in Data Science, Software Engineering, and other specialised fields. The curriculum has been designed and vetted by E&ICT Academy, IIT Guwahati, and learners enrolling with AlmaBetter will get an additional Advanced Certification from E&ICT Academy, IIT Guwahati, enabling them to get IIT-certified global standard education. The learners would have access to guest lectures by the IIT Guwahati faculty and can opt for a campus immersion opportunity at the IIT Guwahati campus. After completing this certification, learners can add a prestigious IIT endorsement to their resumes, enhancing their career prospects.  

This collaboration between IIT Guwahati and AlmaBetter is poised to reshape the tech education landscape in the country. In the current scenario, access to premium institutes and high-quality tech education is limited to a select few, restricted to only some premium institutes. As per a report released in 2018, only 3 per cent of the total number of students in India make up for enrolments in premium institutes like IIMs and IITs. With this partnership, AlmaBetter aims to increase this fraction by at least 30 per cent by democratising tech education and making it widely accessible and affordable to tech enthusiasts and professionals nationwide.  

All students eyeing IIT-certified programs can now access a global curriculum via a flexible way of learning focused on job outcomes with access to AlmaBetter's esteemed network of over 700 hiring partners.
