Tata Consultancy Services, the leading IT services, consulting, and business solutions organization, has expanded its golT initiative into Canada. golT is a key TCS initiative to get high school students interested in pursuing higher education in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. Over the past 12 months, TCS has been working with Canada's Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC) to develop an innovative program to spark interest among Canada's Grade 7-10 students to pursue careers in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
The program will be initially rolled out to 10 schools within the Greater Toronto area starting in the 2013/14 school year, with the intent to expand to more school boards and regions across Canada. It will be led by TCS professionals and involve multiple in-school workshops throughout the entire school season on some of the latest technology topics. In the first year, the program will target over 1,000 students.
