Carnegie Mellon University, TCS break ground for global research facility

13 Apr 2017

Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has took another historic step in their partnership by breaking ground for a new facility to be built on the CMU campus in Pittsburgh. The new ‘TCS Hall’ is supported by a $35 million grant from TCS, the largest-ever industry donation to CMU.

Facing Forbes Avenue, at the western entrance to the CMU campus, TCS Hall is slated to open in 2018. The building will house research and academic spaces where the two institutions will collaborate on promoting next-generation technologies that will drive the 4th Industrial Revolution, including cognitive systems and autonomous vehicles. In addition to the research and academic spaces, the 48,000-square-foot building will feature an innovation courtyard, an eco-sustainable rain garden and a ‘robot yard’. The high-tech facility will feature a steel-and-brick architectural design, to pay homage to Pittsburgh’s historical contribution towards previous industrial revolutions.
