IIT-KGP, Canadian varsity ink MoU on academic partnerships
Kharagpur, Sep 12 (IANS) IIT-Kharagpur has signed a pact with Carleton University of Canada to support research collaboration, capacity building and other academic partnerships.
Under the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), both institutions will focus on opportunities in student and faculty exchanges and professional development programmes, IIT-Kharagpur said in a statement here on Wednesday.
The two institutions will also explore the possibilities of collaborative master's programmes and jointly supervised Ph.D students.
The MoU will cover interaction among faculty on joint research projects and research visits and, when necessary, joint applications for research funding from external agencies.
"We are happy to sign the MoU with Carleton University. We look forward to a long and fruitful collaboration," IIT-Kharagpur Deputy Director Sriman Kumar Bhattacharyya said.
