Visit of our partner university Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT)

Last Monday, we welcomed two professors from the School of Electronics Engineering of the Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) in India, Dr. Sivanantham Sathasivam, Professor and Dean and Dr. Zachariah C. Alex. The VIT is a private university and ranked among the top 3 in India with strong international presence across the world and partnerships with over 300 foreign universities.

At the beginning of June, RWTH International Academy also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with VIT, having already admitted many of their students to our M.Sc. Degree Programs in recent years.

New cooperation opportunities in the field of electronics

The objective of their visit was to strengthen the research collaboration between the VIT and the RWTH Aachen and explore possible activities in the field of Electronics and relevant domains. To do so the two professors took a tour at the RWTH Demofabrik Aachen, the central manufacturing environment on the Campus Melaten.

We thank Janis Simons from FIR e.V. for the warm welcome and the opportunity to give our guests an exclusive tour through the laboratory.

Strategies to engage Indian students and strengthen academic standards

During lunch with Helmut at the Boulevard 30, constructive conversations were held about our future collaboration and how to recruit more students from India for our German Engineering College (GEC) as well as the RWTH 4+2-Progam in the coming years.

In particular, they discussed how to improve the academic standards of Indian universities such as VIT to ensure that Masters students graduate from our M.Sc. programs with excellence and are ready to enter the job market.
