TCS wins contract from Spain’s Royal Academy of Engineering
TCS will deploy ‘Forum for the Digitalization of Higher Education’ (FDHE), a framework for Spanish and worldwide universities to digitize all touchpoints throughout the student lifecycle, from admissions, campus management, and learning management to exam administration, assessments, results management, and student communications.
“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,” said Javier Pérez de Vargas Cabrero, Managing Director, Royal Academy of Engineering, Spain. “The new FDHE framework will not only uphold the highest standards of the Academy but optimize university administrative processes and boost student satisfaction levels across the global education sector.”
The new digital FDHE framework will streamline university campus operations, drive speed and transparency in assessments, and enhance student and educator experience. It will also drive international student enrollment and provide online access to the latest digital learning services, helping Spanish engineering institutions expand into global markets. Further, it will encourage better engagement among candidates, students, and alumni.
In addition, the 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 highly 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.
“Our deep domain knowledge, partnerships with academia, and investments in intellectual property position us very well to accelerate digital transformation in the European education sector,” said Ankur Mathur, head- education business, TCS.
TCS’ education business unit ties together teams from assessment platform TCS iON, Public Services teams, and its Communication, Media and Information (CMI) unit. It pans K-12 (early years, primary and secondary schools), higher education, adult education skills and corporate learning.
As part of this contract, 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 insights on how innovations in digital learning can be leveraged to transform the education experience for a global community of students and learning professionals.
