University of Twente joins forces with Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham University

International Edu News

The Interaction Technology (I-Tech) Master’s programme at the University of Twente will intensify its collaboration with Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham University in India. Both institutions have signed a so-called 3+2 agreement, which allows Amrita students to combine the fourth year of their Bachelor’s with the first year of the I-Tech Master’s programme at UT. The first Amrita students to come to Twente as part of this new programme are expected next September.

After their first ‘hybrid’ year, the Indian students will move on to the second year of the I-Tech Master’s programme. The EEMCS faculty already has experience with this 3+2 structure. Similar agreements with two Chinese universities, the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) and Northwestern Polytechnical University (NPU), are already in place.

Amrita has recently set up a unique programme that brings together students and teachers in multidisciplinary teams with partners from international universities. Each team spends a few months in an Indian village, using scientific knowledge to set up projects that help improve the local quality of life. In the future, UT students will also be able to take part in these Live-in-Labs.
