It is very well known that Android is the flagship product of Google and also one of the most used Operating System across the world. The usage among the customers is very high. Talking about India, the market share is very high as it has the highest penetration in India. Also, the market share of Android is almost close to 40% which is very good.
CEO of Google, Sundar Pichai said, “As per the new plan of Google, we will train two million Android developers in partnership with 30 universities. This will be done over the time period of next three years. For me, getting many developers in the workforce is that it is going to solve many new things. On these lines, LPU advanced itself and availed the coveted opportunity.”
Android is being used by millions of people in more than 190 countries with the largest user base. The students of LPU will not be charged anything extra for this course and they will also get their Android certification.
Coming via Indiaeducationdiary, The Chancellor of LPU University, Mr. Ashok Mittal said, “Now- a- day, more and more people are using smartphones and most of these phones are powered by Android Apps in one or the other form. As such, each and every company is also recruiting students who are expert in Android programming”.
Mr. Mittal added: “Seeing this all courses of Android programming have become an utmost necessity for LPU, we came out with the idea that no one else could be a great partner than Google itself. Under this collaboration, our students will be trained through Google expertise. For this training, LPU is going to set the state of art Google Center of Excellence with ultra modern facilities and Google Chrome books.”
