Visit of our partner university Vishwarkarma Institute of Information Technology (VIIT)

Last Thursday, we had the honor to welcome Dr. Vivek Deshpande and Dr. Atul Kulkarni from Vishwarkarma Institute of Information Technology (VIIT) to RWTH International Academy. VIIT is an independent institute affiliated to Savitribai Phule Pune University, one of India’s leading universities.

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with VIIT was already signed last fall when our Managing Director Dr. Helmut Dinger visited India for the inauguration of our local India Office.

During the return visit of our Indian guests in Germany, we have discussed to deepen our cooperation in the coming years.

The RWTH 4+2-Programm enables cross-border studying

The core of our collaboration will be the RWTH 4+2-Programm. This program, especially designed for partner universities, allows the integration or RWTH modules into the curriculum of the Indian university. Students from VIIT are thus given the opportunity to participate in online classes of RWTH Aachen University alongside their Bachelor studies in India. By participating in this program, the Indian students get optimally prepared for a Master’s degree program at RWTH and benefit from priority admission during the application process.

We also explored the possibilities of customized summer schools for VIIT and made initial plans for collaboration on the Master’s degree level.  We are looking forward to many exciting projects that we will realize together in the future.

The visit was completed by a visitation of the Smart Automation Lab of the Machine Tool Laboratory WZL. We thank the colleagues from the WZL for the warm welcome and the opportunity to give our guests an exclusive tour through the laboratory.
