Empass signs MoU to partner with Amity University for mobile-based skill development:
Gurgaon, March 7, 2017: Empass, a new-age job skills assessment mobile platform for students and working professionals, has signed a memorandum of understanding with Amity University in Noida on February 23, 2017.
The agreement aims to enhance job readiness and professional skills of Amity students. It does so by offering skill-assessment and learning on mobiles as a 'game-like' activity. The students who are registered on Empass can build their skills by playing bite-sized learning modules in a healthy competitive setting.
The innovative smartphone solution also allows Amity's faculty members to contribute questions to the app and review student performance. The MoU opens the platform for Amity placement officers who can access detailed data on how the learners performed, how long it took them, what they chose to learn voluntarily. The placement officers can also access detailed leaderboards to identify the top ranking students in any job skill(s) & present the most eligible candidates during the campus placement drives.
The agreement was signed by Jaydeep Singh, Founder & CEO, and Dr. Ajay Rana, Advisor, Amity Group during their IT Summit 2017 at Noida Campus. The MoU aims at imparting more than 20 business, technical and aptitude skills to over 27,000 students doing Engineering and IT courses across all Amity campuses.
Welcoming the agreement, Dr. Rana, who is responsible for placements, alumni relationships and industry connect at Amity said, “We want to give the best infrastructure, support and learning opportunities to our students to make them confident and job-ready young professionals. Thanks to Empass, achieving this is easier than ever! This pioneering mobile solution will help our students to test and improve their skills from anywhere and anytime. It will also support us in identifying the best performing students who will be selected to sit for visiting campus hiring partner organizations.”
Jaydeep Singh, Founder & CEO, Empass said, “We are delighted to form an alliance with Amity University to provide their students, a platform that will not only help them identify gaps in learning but also make them ready for job opportunities.
