Infosys to train NSW varsity students

Posted on Nov 01, 06:07PM | UNI

New South Wales (NSW) University students will get the chance to live, travel and work on cutting edge technology projects in India through InStep NSW, a new internship programme announced today by IT major Infosys and NSW Premier Barry O'Farrell.

Built on an award-winning internship programme from Infosys, InStep NSW will be unique because it is aimed at fostering ideas and building skills that will help expand the NSW economy. Local universities will nominate both student candidates and project topics based on their potential to spur economic growth, an Infosys release said here today.

Mr O'Farrell said the InStep programme was a great initiative that would not only benefit the students but also help to build stronger ties between India and NSW.

'The NSW students will gain professional skills during the internships and learn just as much by working alongside and interacting with their Indian colleagues during the internship,' he said.

InStep NSW would help students develop a greater understanding of Asia, which we know is going to be of great importance as international business focuses increasingly on the region, he added.
