NVIDIA Inks Agreement with Thapar Institute to Launch Advanced Al & Data Science School

NVIDIA has partnered with Patiala, Punjab-based Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology (TIET) to establish the Thapar School of Advanced AI & Data Science (TSAAI). This collaboration aims to empower students and faculty with essential AI skills and knowledge.

The new TSAAI will be located at TIET's Patiala campus and offer a comprehensive range of academic programs in AI. It's exciting to see educational institutions and industry leaders coming together to promote AI expertise and research.

The signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between TIET and NVIDIA marked a significant milestone in our journey towards advancing AI education and research. Through its technical collaboration with NVIDIA, TIET offers a formidable infrastructure, currently 227 Petaflops of Al performance to be expanded to over 500 Petaflops, tailored for the most demanding Al and Deep Learning tasks.

With NVIDIA's state-of-the-art technology, TIET is poised to create a dynamic environment for innovation, research, and professional development.

TIET will set up state-of-the-art AI infrastructure leveraging NVIDIA DGX systems with NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs, NVIDIA A100 Tensor Core GPUs, and the NVIDIA AI Enterprise software platform for the development and deployment of generative AI. This dedicated data centre will offer 227 petaflops of AI performance with nearly 8 terabytes of GPU memory. Apart from core accelerated computing infrastructure, TIET is setting up edge computing infrastructure with 500 Jetson Nano developer kits to build up the startup ecosystem, taking leaps forward to turn graduates into job creators rather than job seekers.

This AI university program aims to offer a comprehensive range of courses, labs, research opportunities and innovation projects to empower both students and faculty with essential AI skills and knowledge.

The Thapar Institute of Engineering & Technology (TIET), formerly known as Thapar University, is a private Deemed-to-be University established in 1956 in Patiala, Punjab. It has a rich history and is one of India's oldest and finest educational institutions. TIET provides a steady source of highly skilled talent to the nation as well as overseas. With a 300-acre campus, it is top-ranked and accredited with an 'A+' Grade by NAAC. The institute offers excellent placements, international collaborations, and over 300 scholarships. If you're interested in engineering education, TIET is definitely worth exploring.
