SKP Engineering College inks Pact with NJIT
SKP Engineering College ( SKPEC ), Tiruvannamalai, signed a Memorandum of Understanding ( MoU ) with New Jersey Institute of Technology ( NJIT ), U.S. for academic cooperation.
K. Karunanidhi, Chairman, SKPEC, and Durga Misra, Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, NJIT signed the papers on the college campus here on Thursday.
Mr. Mishra said that the MoU would pave way for an exchange of faculties and students between these two institutions and both will cooperate in the area of Very Large Scale Integration ( VLSI ).
But later on the cooperation may extend to other departments such as material science, chemical engineering and instrumental engineering etc, he said.
Facilities for Students
Mr. Karunanidhi said “The MoU would facilitate students and faculties of the SKPEC to participate in technical seminars and workshops that would be organised in the U.S. People from both institutes could take up joint research programs. Students of the SKPEC could enrol themselves in short – term courses there and utilise research facilities available”.
Already SKPEC is having a similar understanding with Tokyo Institute of Technology. It is also possible in the future that all these three institutes would enter into trilateral understanding to jointly take up some research works, he said.
