Chennai: TalentSprint, an EdTech platform and NSE group company, announced the launch of the third cohort of the pioneering Women Engineers Program (WE) with support from Google.

TalentSprint WE was conceived in 2019 to address the gender disparity seen in the tech industry.

Given the highly encouraging industry acceptance for previous cohort participants, the third cohort is being scaled up to accommodate 500 participants. The cohort is aimed at first year women engineering students across India and will commence from May 2021.

It is widely known that women were pioneers in the early days of computing. Lady Ada Lovelace and Admiral Grace Hopper, both women, are widely considered the world’s first computer programmer and software tester respectively. Despite these early role models, women professionals have lost ground in the technology sector and today represent a mere 26% of the global tech workforce.

The TalentSprint WE program seeks to address this gender imbalance by selecting, training, and nurturing gifted women engineering students from across India, with diverse academic pedigrees and socio-economic backgrounds to fulfil their potential in the field of software engineering.    

The first two cohorts received 27,000 applications, of which 220 participants were invited to join the program.

Till date, more than 50 leading companies such as Google, Amazon, Flipkart, Microsoft, Goldman Sachs, Accenture, Adobe, Capgemini, Oracle, Gojek, Mathworks, and others have extended prestigious internships or job offers to these participants, at compensation levels 150% higher than the market median for entry-level engineers.

Admission to the third cohort will be through a rigorous multi-stage selection process, and students invited to join this cohort may receive partial or full financial aid, based on their merit and financial backgrounds.

Young women engineering students are encouraged to learn more about TalentSprint WE program at  and apply if they are eligible.

Applications will open on March 1, 2021 and close on March 21, 2021.
