The University of Birmingham and IIT Madras announce the establishment of joint master’s programs to explore studies in data science, biomedical engineering, and energy systems.
The University of Birmingham and IIT Madras have decided to launch the first postgraduate program next year before developing further study programs in subsequent years. During a visit to Chennai, the partnership between both universities was reached by Professor Adam Tickell, Principal and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Birmingham.
The joint master’s programs will be carried out at the campuses of both institutions, and the mutual recognition of the academic credits will lead to a single degree certificate. As per IIT Madras, the joint master’s program is the first education partnership at the master’s level between any UK Russell Group University and IIT. The new partnership will benefit students with academic flexibility to learn and work through the latest technology to define the future of global engineering.
Adam Tickell stated that the University of Birmingham is a global ‘civic’ institute committed to shaping education and research partnerships in India. The new post-graduation programs between the two institutions will offer students better opportunities to pursue a world-class education and have their educational achievements recognized by both.
