VIIT Nodal Center of Texas Instrument Technology

In order to bridge Industry-Academia gap, SPPU has incorporated Texas Instrument technology in curriculum of its affiliated colleges in core branches of engineering.

A MOU is signed between SPPU and Texas Instruments.

The objectives of this liaison are as follows:

  • To develop faculty mentors who will work with academic community in educating them and help in creating a team of experts around TI technology.

  • Inculcate and learn application/project oriented teaching methodology in current academic framework.

  • Understand systems approach for building applications around TI technologies.
