Speaking about MEC, C.P Gurnani, Member, Executive Committee (MEI), Managing Director and CEO, Tech Mahindra said, "The biggest challenge today is the lack of industry relevant skill sets in professionals, and the need for young engineering students to change, transform and adapt to the constantly evolving market dynamics.
We have continuously sought answers to these challenges, and have set up a world-class institute in India as a response to the same. Our main objective is to create a best-in-class platform for industry-academia collaboration to foster a future-ready talent poo, he said.
"Today's challenges are not just local or global; they are an amalgamation of the two and can be described as Glocal. To find solutions to these challenges the need for knowledge sharing is not just across domains but also borders, has become the need of the hour," said Dr. Yajulu Medury, Director, MEC.
Mahindra École Centrale (MEC) College of engineering is an international technology school, that marks the foray of the USD 20.7 billion Mahindra Group into the higher education sector.
