Hyderabad-based engineering consultancy firm, Cyient, on Friday, unveiled a new global design centre in Bangalore for SMEC, an Australian company which provides consultancy services on infrastructure projects.
It will be SMEC’s first offshore centre supporting the global design work mainly around civil and structural services, including building information modeling.
The new design centre will be located at Cyient's Electronic City campus, Bangalore. The operations of the centre are expected to commence from July 2016. On the path to create new employment opportunities, the company is likely to rope in 100 full-time engineers within a year and grow the team with each passing year.
Krishna Bodanapu, Cyient’s Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, stated that partnering with SMEC and establishment of the global design centre is a delight for Cyient.
The new ties represent strong synergies in structural and civil engineering which both, Cyient and SMEC have identified with each other.
The state-of-the-art global design centre will be a pillar of long-term association of Cyient with SMEC, he added.
