Infosys, which provides next-generation digital services and consulting, has announced a strategic partnership with Arizona State University (ASU) to enhance its engineering graduate students’ learning experience on campus and in interactive remote classes. The program will begin in spring 2021.
Full-time graduate students in ASU’s Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at ASU will have access to Infosys’ digital learning solutions and services, whether they are enrolled in in-person or through ASU Sync classes.
Students will use the Infosys Wingspan platform from the Live Enterprise for Education Suite to earn certifications and badges in many technical skill sets. They can also run demos and practice exercises to earn applied project experience in the “Playgrounds” content area.
"This academic year, it is more important than ever for remote learning to function seamlessly, allowing students to continue their education from anywhere in the world," said Ravi Kumar, president of Infosys. "This strategic partnership is just the latest example of our deep ties to Arizona State University and our shared commitment to bringing the best training and opportunities to its students."
ASU can use Infosys Wingspan to improve engagement with students involved in online synchronous and asynchronous learning. The university’s administrative and IT staff can use the platform to identify and address technical issues.
"Using the Infosys digital solutions, students anywhere in the world can engage in the immersive learning experience that characterizes our high-quality engineering and technology degree programs," said Michael M. Crow, president of ASU.
"We look forward to expanding access to the global network of learners who will soon drive their own solutions forward as career-ready industry professionals."
Full-time master's students who begin in spring 2021 and are enrolled in a computer science, software engineering, information technology or computer engineering program on-campus or through ASU Sync classes are eligible for a one-year scholarship to access a free Infosys Wingspan license.
