A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between NEC Corporation India and Chitkara University. The agreement will provide an opportunity for the University to upskill its students, faculty and academic researchers in the field of AI. It will also enable students to obtain certifications for being job-ready and finding suitable employment opportunities within and outside NEC.

To accelerate India's vision to enable a technologically empowered nation, NEC India will co-create a state-of-the-art education program to help students achieve outstanding performance across diverse workloads by establishing a dedicated AI/HPC lab on the campus.

As part of this agreement, NEC India will also provide a vector engine system namely SX-Aurora TSUBASA to the university.
