Poitiers | June 9, 2022: Signed for 5 years, this partnership will enable TCS support for students in the following SFA - Fundamental and Applied Sciences - training courses: ‘Signal and Image Processing’ Master’s degree with specialization in ‘Intelligent Objects Engineering’, and ‘Computing course Software Design’ Master’s degree, with specialization in ‘Data Management and Analysis, Embedded Computing’.
With this collaboration, TCS and the university of Poitiers aim at shaping a new generation of engineers and thus meet local recruitment needs in high-growth sectors. Here, TCS supports young people in their training for jobs of the future and thus contributes to the development of their employability by providing a professional component to their training.
The activity fields related to SFA training are as follows:
• Architecture of IT structures.
• Data management studies and expertise.
• Development of integrated services for connected objects.
• Management of digital structures.
Today, TCS is committed to making the University of Poitiers its preferred partner in its recruitment policy and to playing an active educational role in the training of students. TCS will thus support students and graduates of the University of Poitiers with Master's level internship proposals, professionalization and apprenticeship contracts, and other job offers.
Nearly thirty employees, based in Poitiers, are among the alumni of the University of Poitiers, i.e. more than 25% of the Agile TCS service center, inaugurated last November in Chasseneuil-du-Poitou, in the heart of Greater Poitiers. In addition, nearly 100% of interns from the University are recruited by TCS at the end of their internship.
TCS and the University of Poitiers will collaborate to enrich the programs and increase the skills of students by sharing their knowledge and organizing joint events: juries for validation of acquired experience or diplomas, conferences on the most recent technological trends, MA projects, and a hackathon.
“The signature of a partnership with the University of Poitiers is in line with our commitments in terms of community and regional development. Supporting young talents in the digital fields, and therefore meeting the demand for growth in this sector of activity, is an additional step in the development of TCS in France”, says Rammohan Gourneni, Country Head of TCS France.
“The University of Poitiers has already been working for several years with Tata Consultancy Services France through internships, work-study programs and student employment. The signature of this partnership goes in the direction of an even closer development of our relations, in order to support both the professional integration of our students and the local economic dynamism.” explains Virginie Laval, president of the university of Poitiers.
As a reminder, the TCS Agile service center inaugurated last November in Poitiers is a key-element of the Group's long-term growth and the 2nd largest TCS center in France. It has enabled the company's French entity to double its workforce in the Poitevine region in less than a year and is recognized for its expertise in new digital technologies and mobility solutions. Its clients are local players, CAC40 companies or international companies from a wide variety of business sectors.
Today, TCS France employs more than 1,400 professionals and the company aims at accelerating job creation in France.
TCS has been ranked No. 1 in customer satisfaction in France and Europe by the leaders of the companies making the largest investments in IT by Whitelane Research. In addition, the company has received from the hands of Mr. Emmanuel LENAIN, Ambassador of France in India, the award for "2021 - Best Investment in France" and is recognized as a Top Employer in France for the past two years by the Top Employers Institute.
TCS is also committed to preparing young audiences for future technological careers. As part of its CSR program goIT, TCS France leads mentoring initiatives to raise awareness of IT and encourage young schoolchildren to pursue studies in the field of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and to become the technological leaders of tomorrow.
