Here, in Digital Engineering, we make it all happen. We build, develop, and engineer customised solutions. To do this, we take all the research, strategy, designs, and architecture from our fellow Cognizant teams, and we transform them into reality. And we do this for clients across different industries. Like when we engineered an automatic, online clinic for a leading pharmaceutical, enabling their customers to receive their prescription quickly and efficiently right to their home. Just one of the thousands of examples of how our intuitive engineering moves people from ordinary experiences to digital experiences. If you want to push your engineering mindset to build and deliver on real solutions, then explore our roles. Apply for this programme.

Data is the powerful currency of all modern business. We help clients cover every aspect of data, from foundational essentials to artificial intelligence and machine learning. It’s what we did for the Aston Martin Formula One racing team. We provided them with key data that influenced the design and performance of the car. Our work helped accelerate them ahead of the curve with a positive carbon footprint. Our teams work at the centre of transforming data into powerful information that drives key decisions and empowers business solutions. We help clients gain a deeper understanding of their businesses by collecting and validating data, exploring it, questioning it, and shaping it to its fullest potential. We consider the processes used to deliver, govern, and present results, and we ask important questions around the increasingly complex world of data privacy.
