Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati (IIT-G) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Mehta Family Foundation (MFF), Houston, Texas, USA, to establish the ‘Jyoti and Bhupat Mehta School of Health Sciences and Technology.’ The New School at IIT Guwahati will commence academic activities during the current academic year.
The Jyoti and Bhupat Mehta School of Health Sciences and Technology has launched new Master’s and PhD programmes in Health Sciences and Technology this academic year. The first batch of 20 M.Tech students in the stream of Biomedical Science and Engineering will be admitted to IIT Guwahati through GATE 2022.
The new programme will emphasise extending training in both theoretical as well as hands-on perspectives, which will enable the development of academic leaders with a strong scientific foundation alongside having the capability to translate the ideas into biomedical technologies.
The school aims to train the students in topics related to health science and technology, with the emphasis on courses from other disciplines of science and engineering such as biosciences and bioengineering, electronics and electrical engineering, chemical engineering, mathematics and statistics, and design.
