Synchrony and the University of Connecticut partnered to open the Synchrony Digital Technology Center (DTC or Lab) at UConn Stamford.
The Digital Technology Center (Sychrony DTC) focuses on advancing Synchrony’s finance and technology capabilities as well as providing real-world skills for students in artificial intelligence, data science, human-centered design and other emerging technologies.
The students in the program will work closely with Synchrony technology experts to commercialize solutions for the company’s partners. Projects can range across multiple disciplines, such as software and mobile application development, big data analytics, innovation and integration. Synchrony SVP, Digital Engineering Dan Murphy, and his team of managers recruit and train student talent for the DigitalTechnology Center.
The new partnership builds upon Synchrony’s existing relationships with other educational institutions and complements the company’s four global Innovation Stations.
The Synchrony DTC space was officially opened on December 16, 2019 by UConn President Thomas Katsouleas and Synchrony CEO Margaret Keane. Both of these leaders share a vision of Stamford-based corporations playing a role in educating our future leaders in Stamford and UConn through internships where students help solve critical business and technology challenges for a corporation like Synchrony.
