Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and consulting firm Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) broken ground on the TCS Hall, a research and innovation facility made possible by a $35m grant from TCS awarded in 2015.
The 48,000 square-foot facility, which will open in 2018 and be based on the CMU campus, will house research and academic spaces, as well as an eco-sustainable rain garden and a robot yard.
TCS Hall will allow the two institutions to collaborate on next-generation technologies, such as cognitive systems and autonomous vehicles.
In addition to building the facility, the grant will also support the TCS Presidential Scholarships and Fellowships, with the first beneficiaries of the scholarship to enroll within the next year.
Subra Suresh, president of CMU, said: “The leadership of TCS and Tata Sons are harnessing the power of one of the world’s largest business groups to bring some of most promising new technologies to the marketplace.
“We believe that, operating at the intersection of technology and humanity, CMU and TCS each bring extraordinary strengths to this unique partnership.”
