Research partnership with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS)
Macquarie University and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) announced a new research agreement that will provide opportunities for Macquarie students to gain valuable real-world experience in the frontier application of artificial intelligence (AI) in the financial services sector.
As part of the substantial research agreement, TCS and Macquarie will provide research scholarships to postgraduate students, giving them global research exposure, access to international conferences and the opportunity to work on projects that explore the use of data analytics and AI in the financial services sector.
The partnership will also create future opportunities for Macquarie students, including access to the Tata Global Internship Programme (TGIP), which provides internships that enable students to build critical business skills while working on real projects globally. The students will learn how Tata manages operations across its conglomerate of companies spanning a wide range of industries.
