Curtin University and the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay have collaborated on a new doctoral degree program, which will allow some of India’s brightest postgraduate students to study in Australia.
The agreement was signed by Curtin University Vice-Chancellor Professor Deborah Terry and Indian Institute of Technology Bombay Director Professor Subhasis Chaudhuri, and builds on Curtin’s existing collaborative PhD agreements with the Indian Institutes of Technology in Kharagpur, Madras, Guwahati, Kanpur, and Dhanbad (formerly known as the Indian School of Mines).
Curtin University Associate Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research Excellence Professor Garry Allison said the agreements offer doctoral students the opportunity to study at both Curtin and the respective Indian institution during the course of their research.
The collaborative programs are focused in the science and engineering fields of mathematics, biological sciences, mathematics, data and engineering, as well as business and management areas.
The Indian Institute of Technology Bombay is recognised as a world leader in the field of engineering education and research.
