The MoU provides an opportunity for the University of Sydney and Tech Mahindra to collaborate and exchange expertise in common areas of interest, and allows for the exchange of academics and internships for students at Tech Mahindra’s research facilities.
The agreement was signed by B.K. Mishra, Tech Mahindra’s Senior VP & Global Delivery Head, and Tania Rhodes-Taylor, the University’s Vice-Principal (External Relations) last month.
Ms Rhodes-Taylor and Professor Richard Miles, the University’s Pro Vice-Chancellor (Education – Enterprise and Engagement) were present at Tech Mahindra’s Hyderabad campus to sign the document and initiate the partnership between the two institutions.
At the signing, Mr Mishra said: “We are delighted to collaborate with the University of Sydney, one of the leading universities of the world. This MOU opens a lot of new opportunities for joint pursuits, especially in the area of research and technology.”
“This partnership will provide a platform for innovating new ideas arising out of technology research and help create real world applications and digital solutions,” he added.
Ms Rhodes-Taylor said: “The University of Sydney is pleased to partner with Tech Mahindra, to explore ways we might work together on research and innovation projects across a range of disciplines and shared challenges.”
“Importantly, the MOU also provides an opportunity for our students to be involved in projects at Tech Mahindra’s research facilities in Australia, India and around the world – to develop their skills and knowledge through hands-on experience with a global company,” she explained.
Tech Mahindra is a global digital, consulting and business company, headquartered in India and part of the Mahindra Group that operates in over 100 countries around the world.
