Infosys, a global leader in consulting, technology and next-generation services, announced today it has started construction on its U.S. Education Center in Indianapolis. This state-of-the-art training campus and residential center for its employees — and the employees of select clients — will prepare the American workforce for the technology jobs of the future, and also begin to revitalize a 70.5-acre site on the West Side of Indianapolis on the grounds of the old
Indianapolis airport terminal.
This groundbreaking marks another important milestone in the company’s growing commitment to the State of Indiana. In March 2018, Infosys opened its first U.S. Technology and Innovation Hub in Indianapolis and in April the company expanded its hiring plans for Indiana from 2,000 to 3,000 new jobs by the end of 2023. Infosys has already hired more than 300 American workers in Indiana this year toward this goal.
The company is providing an initial investment of $35 million to create the first 125,000 square feet of development, transforming the 70.5-acre site into an innovative training center. Infosys’ investment will fund major infrastructure efforts as well as beautification projects. Infosys anticipates the first phase of development will be complete by the end of 2020. Infosys has retained Browning Day Mullins Dierdorf and Browning Investments to assist in the development and construction of the project site and looks forward to working with these well-established Indianapolis construction companies.
The initial phase of construction will develop a training center and allow for the accommodation of a 250- person residential facility. The finished campus will also include extensive walkways and green spaces as well as recreational facilities. The U.S. Education Center will also serve as a convening ground for the development of advanced digital technologies. Infosys’ initial training programs at the U.S. Education Center will utilize the learnings and best practices the company has acquired and developed through decades of experience running the world’s largest corporate university. In partnership with academia and education providers, Infosys’ training efforts will combine classroom-based and immersive, real-world learning focused on the skills American workers need to keep businesses on the forefront of innovation, including areas such as user experience, cloud, big data and core technology and computer science skills.
