Tech Mahindra, Mahindra University to set up Makers Lab

Digital transformation and consulting company Tech Mahindra has signed an agreement with Mahindra University to set up a Makers Lab to promote research and development in quantum computing, XAI (explainable AI) and metaverse.

“The partnership will fuel co-innovation by leveraging next-generation technologies,” CP Gurnani, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Tech Mahindra, said.

“We believe that technology-led innovation will enable us to build a sustainable, digital world amidst all shockwaves — predictable and unpredictable. Our partnership with Mahindra University is in line with this vision and is aimed at empowering students with rich learning opportunities through various initiatives,” he said.

“With the launch of Makers Lab, we will provide many talented and skilled individuals, with the opportunity to progress for a greater cause,” he said. The students of Mahindra University will get an opportunity to work on IPs made within the Makers Lab and get deployed in R&D projects on the campus.

“They will also collaborate with coding groups to get access to projects, internships, and employment opportunities. The evaluation process to select students for Makers Lab will be facilitated by Mahindra University and Tech Mahindra,” a university spokesperson said.
