Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati (IIT-G) is collaborating with Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham (AVV), a private, deemed-university based in Coimbatore, in education and research activities. This will help in enriching academic programmes and promote the exchange of students between two institutions.
IIT Guwahati and AVV will encourage cooperation between their faculty members, departments, and research centres including visits of faculty members to deliver lectures, conduct seminars, discussions, research and supervise student studies. Students visits to attend courses and jointly develop teaching programmes would also be encouraged along with collaboration in research projects.
An MoU towards this collaboration was signed by Prof. T.G. Sitharam, Director, IIT Guwahati, and Prof. Venkata Rangan, Vice-Chancellor, AVV.
Sitharam said, “This mutual collaboration will help both the institutes scale new heights in research and academics.”
Dr Rangan said, “I am sure we will leverage our strengths and work for a sustainable world to the betterment of humanity as our Chancellor Amma has always envisaged.”
