PITTSBURGH (AP) — A global information technology services firm is giving Carnegie Mellon University $35 million to fund a new research and education facility.

The Pittsburgh university announced the gift from India-based Tata Consulting Services on Wednesday.

The facility is designed to be a collaborative space for students, researchers and company staff. Officials say the 40,000-square-foot building will have space where university faculty can collaborate and the firm's staff can interact with staff and students.

University President Subra Suresh says the facility will be part of the biggest development push in the school's 115-year history.

University officials say the donation is the largest corporate gift in its history and the biggest from outside the United States.
