Tata Technologies invests in STEM education in Metro Detroit

Tata Technologies is making a significant investment in local STEM education, and it’s not hard to see why after looking at the company’s recent hiring spree.

The Novi-based firm has hired dozens of people over the last year, expanding its staff to 450 people in Metro Detroit. It employs 650 people in the U.S. with a vast majority of them based in Metro Detroit. The company currently has several dozen open positions in Auburn Hills and Novi right now.

"We are currently adding almost a hundred people a year," says Warren Harris, CEO & managing director of Tata Technologies.

And those are mostly engineering positions. Tata Technologies (its parent company is based out of India) specializes in engineering and product development IT services for the manufacturing sector. It employs thousands of people around the world, and choose to set up shop in Metro Detroit in part because of the deep engineering talent pool here.

Which is part of the reason why Tata Technologies recently made a large donation to enrich STEM education in Detroit Public Schools. Tata Technologies, along with the Detroit Lions and the nonprofit group Athletes for Charity, are working to provide more opportunities for Detroit Public School students to learn more in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects. The STEM Youth Literacy Program will take place at Clark Preparatory Academy and Dixon Educational Learning Academy.

The donation is part of Tata Technologies's goal of improving STEM education around the world, and to help build up its future engineering talent pool.

"One of the commitments we are making is to build up our engineering talent not only here but around the world," Harris says.
