Tata Technologies would support the existing Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) industry interface programmes, while the latter would run specialised programmes created with expert industry perspective and inputs from Tata Technologies, according to a release.
This will lead to specific degrees of BITS through its off-campus Work Integrated Learning Programmes (WILP), it added.
Tata Technologies is the engineering services and manufacturing enterprise IT arm of the Tata Group.
As a first step, a select group of employees from Tata Technologies will undergo a specially designed Masters Program (MS) in Automotive Engineering from BITS.
The employees enrolled in this programme will attend classes online through virtual classrooms without being dislocated from their work environment.
The first batch will start in August 2013.
