Summary
Framework for Spanish and other global universities will enhance student-educator experience, streamline campus operations and exams
This partnership includes a series of interactive events and webinars for schools, colleges, universities and technical learning institutions

Information Technology (IT) major Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has partnered with the Royal Academy of Engineering of Spain to devise a digital framework that would provide access to the latest learning support services online and put Spanish engineering institutions on the global academic map.

TCS will leverage its deep domain knowledge and digital transformation expertise to build and deploy a ‘Forum for the Digitalisation of Higher Education’ (FDHE), according to a statement.

This would be a framework for Spanish as well as other global universities to enhance student and educator experience, streamline campus operations, and drive greater speed and transparency in assessments, the statement added.

The FDHE framework will digitalise all touch points throughout a student’s lifecycle -- from managing admissions, campus life and academics to organising exams, managing results and student communications.

This will also drive greater international student enrolment, helping Spanish engineering institutions expand into global markets, informed the statement, adding that the framework will encourage better engagement among candidates, students and alumni.

Apart from that, Royal Academy of Engineering of Spain and TCS will create an executive governance board that will work closely with government representatives and university professionals in Spain and worldwide to create engaging learning experiences for higher education leaders, teachers and students. The board will also work with industry sponsors to promote equity and inclusivity across all schools, colleges and universities.

“We are pleased to partner with Royal Academy of Engineering of Spain in this strategic initiative of national and global importance, to digitally reimagine higher education and enhance experiences and outcomes for students as well as educators,” said Ankur Mathur, head of the Education Business unit of TCS.

Javier P rez de Vargas Cabrero, managing director at Royal Academy of Engineering of Spain, said, “Our work alongside TCS is a very important initiative, not just to provide better value for engineering students across Spain, but to reimagine the learning experience for a wider market of international students and educational professionals. The new FDHE framework will not only uphold the highest standards of the Academy but optimise university administrative processes and boost student satisfaction levels across the global education sector.”

As part of this partnership, TCS and the Royal Academy of Engineering of Spain will host a series of interactive events, meetings, webinars and roundtables for schools, colleges, universities and technical learning institutions. These sessions will provide valuable insights on how innovations in digital learning can be leveraged to transform the education experience for a global community of students and learning professionals.
