According to the joint media release, the educational collaboration between the two will allow the graduates from Deakin University to gain access to the leading engineers and expertise of Cyient so they can develop their practical skills and enhance their careers.

“Engineering graduates can’t just be good at their primary skill set – they need creativity, innovation and an understanding of market dynamics. Cyient will not only assist us in generating a curriculum that delivers real outcomes for graduates, but provide Australian engineering students with unique opportunities to collaborate with one of India’s leading commercial multinationals,” said Professor Guy Littlefair of Deakin University.

With its Asia Pacific headquarters based in Melbourne, Cyient recently announced 150 new jobs in Australia, in a bid to meet the growing demands of the market where the company continues to grow.

“Australia’s investment in research and development and technical adaption creates very good opportunities for investment and growth,” said Sanjay Krishnaa, Sr. Vice President & Head of Asia Pacific.

“We are uniquely positioned to leverage our expertise and international network to assist Australia’s future engineering graduates to excel, driving Australia’s international competiveness and intellectual capital.”

The company currently employs over 12,000 people around the world, providing leading-edge engineering solutions for the manufacturing, resources, utilities and communications sectors.
