Apart from this initiatives, L&T Technology Services Limited (LTTS) is also working on design, development and testing services for medical, fighter aircrafts, transportation, telecom & hi-tech, and the process industries. They have another interesting initiative called COO Club, which finds the best projects and talent within the company and help those employers to do masters in top universities like Hardward, Wharton etc, while L&T covers all their costs.
The second edition of TECHgium received a record-breaking participation from over 17,000 students across 220 engineering colleges signing up for the event. The platform gave aspiring engineering students an opportunity to create concepts, submit abstracts, present technical presentation and showcase Proof of Concept (PoC) on real life technical challenges. Some of the challenges included Machine Learning Platform for Video Analytics for elevators, Augmented/Assisted Reality applications for industrial customers, Video analytics tool for detecting human intentions and Reduction of Emission from Automobiles among others.
We hope to see more of such events which help students by bridging the gap between academia and industry and also motivate students to think and work beyond their textbooks.
