ImpactAlpha, August 9 – Chennai-based edtech venture Skill-Lync offers online engineering courses and certificates to address a global tech skills gap.

“Engineering education and upskilling outside of computer science have seen very little digital disruption over the last two decades,” said Anand Prasanna of Iron Pillar, which led Skill-Lync’s $17.5 million Series A round.

Skill-Lync’s offerings start at about $40 and range from individual design software courses to an eight-month post-graduate certificate in Hybrid Electric Vehicle Design and Analysis.

The company has developed content in partnership with Bosch, Accenture, Samsung and other large companies.
