Wichita State, Engineering Firm Form Partnership

KSAL StaffJuly 16, 2014

Wichita State University says it has formed a partnership with an engineering services company from India that it hopes will eventually create new jobs and avoid big layoffs in the aerospace industry.

John Tomblin is the director of the National Institute for Aviation Research at Wichita State. He told The Wichita Eagle that the agreement with global information technology firm Tech Mahindra is unusual.

Under the agreement, the company will work with WSU and NIAR on projects and train new engineers for aerospace and the automotive industries.

The engineers the company helps train at Wichita State University will live in Wichita and work for Tech Mahindra on projects for local companies in composite materials manufacturing, advanced materials, aircraft certification, and structural testing.
