Google teams up with Udacity to offer Android developer nanodegrees in India

Google is collaborating with Udacity in launching a series of Android developer nanodegrees in the country. The course will offer students the tools and skillset required to create great apps for mobile:

The Udacity Android Nanodegree program comprises of courses developed and taught by expert Google instructors from the Google Developer Relations team and will include project reviews, mentorship and career services from Udacity. The curriculum will be updated regularly with new releases and will provide developers with a certificate that will help them to be a more marketable Android developer.

Duration of the nanodegree ranges from six to twelve months, and will cost ₹9,800 ($148) a month. The price is steep, but Udacity has mentioned that it will refund half the tuition back to students upon successful completion of the course. Those that finish the nanodegree will receive a certificate and job placement assistance, two key factors in landing a job in a country that already boasts over 3 million developers.

Google is also partnering with Tata Trusts in offering 1,000 scholarships to the program. More details can be found here (opens in new tab).

  • What is the value of these Udacity certificates? I don't think they are of any value in real world for getting jobs and for INR 10,000 per month or INR 100k per year you can get a real degree with a real college in India, this is why straight currency conversion does not work if you stick USA prices in developing countries like India.
  • True, dat.
