Cornell Computing & Information Science (CIS) continues to reimagine the future of education and work with a new collaboration with Infosys, a global leader in consulting and technology. Helping to reshape the workforce that is driving digital transformation, Cornell faculty will educate Infosys employees on technologies such as blockchain, machine learning and human computer interaction (HCI). Because of the global nature of its workforce, Infosys and Cornell will educate through Cornell’s eCornell virtual learning platform. At least 3,000 Infosys employees are expected to participate in the joint certificate program, which will also include course skills in data analytics, design, system and critical thinking, and engineering.
“It is exciting to work together with Infosys to address cutting-edge tech research and also innovate in how we educate the next generation to work with these technologies,” said CIS Dean Greg Morrisett.
In addition, Infosys and Cornell will actively research technologies with an emphasis on blockchain, software defined networks (SDNs) and cloud computing like creating a more unified policy framework and more efficient application deployments across the public cloud.
“As a leader in digital transformation, Infosys needs to be at the forefront of the technologies and talent driving disruption in the enterprise. Cornell University is synonymous with technology and talent – this is a natural synergy between our organizations to improve workforce education,” said Tan Moorthy, executive vice president and global head of education training and assessments for Infosys.
Infosys focuses on next-generation digital services and consulting and enables clients in 45 countries to navigate their digital transformations.
