HCL started a pilot programme in Madurai, in which it will recruit 100 students who passed Class XII and directly absorb them in the firm after training for one year on its Coimbatore campus. The criterion is, students have to score an average of 85% in their board exams (80% for CBSE students).

It will also give students the option of pursuing a BSc degree from SSN Engineering College through a weekend college programme.

Nine months of classroom training will give the students the foundation they need in engineering subjects followed by three months of training to acquaint them with a working environment.

HCL Technologies vice-president, diversity & sustainability, Srimathi Shivashankar, There is great emphasis on higher education in Tamil Nadu, but the state also has many families that cannot afford an engineering education. The programme will give an opportunity to students who can't afford a regular course.
