SAP Labs, BITS Pilani Join Hands For Work Integrated Learning

Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani, Rajasthan and SAP Labs India have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the objective of fostering collaboration between the two institutions for academic and research interactions.

BITS would offer educational avenues at various levels to meet the human resources development needs of SAP through its off-campus, work-integrated learning programmes. SAP would endeavour to make available the necessary facilities for the implementation and continuation of the Practice School Programme of BITS Pilani after discussions between the two organisations.

A co-ordination committee comprising vice chancellor, BITS as Chairman, and two nominees each from SAP and BITS would plan, co-ordinate and monitor the academic and research programmes as well as all related operational matters within the framework of the academic regulations of BITS and the objectives outlined by SAP.

The SAP-BITS Pilani tie up marks yet another milestone in industry university collaborations in India today.
