February 27, 2020: Pioneer in experiential learning for product development Crio.Do, offers a new programme: Crio Launch, for pre-final and final year engineering students. The programme focuses on enabling engineering students to gain real product development experience and learn relevant technical skills along the way.
Crio Launch is a completely free programme that focuses on software engineering foundations. Students learn foundational concepts by actually applying them in building real software products. Crio Launch participants are handpicked for the program based on a multi-stage selection process. Each stage of the selection process evaluates a student’s appetite to learn and grow their future. Crio Launch has garnered interest from a large number of students in over 500 campuses across the country, making it one of the largest experiential learning programs for product development in India. Students graduating from Crio Launch stand the chance of bagging full or part scholarships to Crio Launch Plus.
Launch Plus is Crio’s flagship career-accelerator program, where a student’s product development skills are elevated to the next level. Apart from product development skills gained through the “Learn by Doing” approach, students are encouraged to develop competencies like “independent problem-solving”, “product sense”, and “willingness to stretch out of one’s comfort zone” through real experiences in the program.
Students who graduate from Launch Plus would be able to hit the floor running from day one in any high-paced, dynamic, product company. For tech companies, Crio Launch Plus graduates would be a unique pool of talented developers with the hunger to build technology and solve real customer problems.
Both, Crio Launch and Crio Launch Plus are extensive programs dedicated to foster a student’s product development skills in about 8-10 weeks. This requires 400-500 hours of a student’s commitment to meet the milestones set in each of the programs.
Says Rathinamurthy R, Co-Founder Crio.Do: "Global developer market is around 20 to 25 million developers and this number is growing rapidly. India forms 1/5th of this market. There is a growing aspiration among developers to get into software product development, coupled with an increase in opportunities in this space. Our goal is to become the de-facto platform for any developer to pick up skills.”
