The Delhi Metro will take up projects in the field of design development, research and indigenisation of technology with the help of Delhi Technological University (DTU).
The Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) and DTU on Tuesday signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in this regard.
The MoU was signed at the Metro Bhawan by DMRC director (electrical) Satish Kumar and DTU vice-chancellor PB Sharma.
As per the MoU, the DMRC may request DTU to undertake consultancy projects related to design, analysis, development, forecasting, investigation, system integration, embedded systems and other software/ hardware based solutions, said a DMRC spokesperson.
The two organisations plan to take up a joint research involving indigenisation of technology, devising cost-effective solutions for operations, planning and design of power networks, storage and standby supplies, voltage regulation and automation among others.
In future, the DMRC also plans to institute fellowships for Ph.D scholars who will work towards finding solutions for problems defined by the DMRC.
