The pilot program will be implemented within the framework of a memorandum signed between the ministry and Amazon last year.

The OpenSearch Service provides a scalable and reliable way to search and analyze data in real time. Amazon specialists will supervise the Kazakh IT students working on the OpenSearch Service for three months, making changes and improvements to the source code for a wide range of data repositories. 

Once the project is completed, based on the results of participation in the project, Kazakh students will receive a full report in the form of an analysis of work in their areas within the framework of the OpenSearch project, recommendations and feedback from mentors of the world’s leading corporation, which can increase the chances of getting an internship or work in any leading technology company

“This program will allow our students not only to get great experience and practical skills working with the support of leading Amazon specialists, but also to add to their portfolio work on international projects and build effective communications with professionals,” reads the ministry’s statement.
