The Makers Lab, which is the research arm of information technology firm Tech Mahindra, has now partnered with the University of Sydney to co-create emerging technology solutions to tackle the issues which are faced by the industry, government, and community.
The partnership will even provide with the students an opportunity to work on the real work issues through the newly developed programme which is called the Industry and Community Projects Unit, the statement added.
“These projects bring students from a range of disciplinary backgrounds together to research, analyze and present solutions to real-world problems. We are equipping our students with the skills they need for the jobs of the future. We are firmly in the Asian century with Australia’s future closely interlinked with Asia,” said Michael Spence, vice-chancellor and principal of the University of Sydney.
Spence added that the partnership was key to giving the university students a better understanding of the region and experience of working with an international company. The partnership is a continuation of the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the University and Tech Mahindra early last year to collaborate in two key areas – a joint research project in the field of Blockchain, AI, ML, ML, security and Data analytics and partnerships for the experiential learning.
