Chandigarh, India, December 08, 2022 — Chitkara University announced its collaboration with NEC Corporation India, a wholly owned subsidiary of NEC Corporation, for a comprehensive academic program for aspiring students to facilitate them with hands-on training and research facilities in the area of Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning (Al/ML) and High-Performance Computing (HPC).

NEC Corporation India and Chitkara University signed the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). The agreement will allow the University to upskill its students, faculty, and academic researchers in AI. It will also enable students to obtain certifications for being job-ready and finding suitable employment opportunities within and outside NEC.

Dr. Madhu Chitkara, Pro-Chancellor, of Chitkara University, said, “The realm of technical education has constantly been evolving and at great speed. This MoU will equip young graduates with analytical capabilities, including using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to help unlock the benefits of digitalization and innovation.”

Deepak Jha, General Manager & Head of Artificial Intelligence Platform, NEC Corporation India, said, “AI/ML and HPC will be the drivers of technological and social change in the coming years. This joint certification program will create industry-ready professionals. We at NEC India strive to build state-of-the-art solutions focused on overcoming complex technological & business challenges. Above all, we believe in sharing our knowledge, skills, and expertise with future generations.”

Over the last two decades, the world has seen a radical transformation in AI research and High-Performance Computing (HPC), transforming from a small, relatively niche domain into an extensive web of pioneering innovations, empowering almost every facet of life. To accelerate India’s vision to enable a technologically empowered nation, NEC India will co-create a state-of-the-art education program to help students achieve outstanding performance across diverse workloads by establishing a dedicated AI/HPC lab on the campus.

As part of this agreement, NEC India will also provide a vector engine system, namely SX-Aurora TSUBASA, to the University. With the establishment of NEC SX-TSUBASA computer system-driven lab, NEC aims to equip Chitkara University with the technology infrastructure required for the course and project work, job-oriented and hands-on training, and research facilities.

NEC Corporation is a Japanese multinational information technology and electronics corporation headquartered in Tokyo, Japan.

Chitkara University, with more than 25,000 students and 1,700 staff from over 100 different countries, has the mission of making every student “industry ready.” As a result, the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), India, has awarded Chitkara University the coveted A+ Grade.
