Strengthening Ties between the Nations

A New Zealand University led academic workshop was organized at IIT Delhi which has strengthened education ties between New Zealand and India. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) will be signed through which a New Zealand center at IIT will be established. For all eight New Zealand universities and IIT Delhi, New Zealand center will be a focal point of academic activity.

The two-day workshop at IIT Delhi provided an opportunity for academics from IIT Delhi and New Zealand universities to discuss and develop projects for long term research collaboration. Sustainable cities, technologies for clean water, cybersecurity and data science, and energy and environmental studies are the collaboration priorities under discussion.

Notable Step towards Long-Term Research Collaboration

Deputy Vice-Chancellor, University of Auckland, Professor Jennifer Dixon led the New Zealand delegation. She said, “This is a significant step in New Zealand’s long-term education relationship with India. We are delighted to be engaging with IIT Delhi as the ideal partner to progress our research collaborations. We are dedicated to creating future global citizens and we look forward to the development of leading-edge research through the association.

The New Zealand center is expected to host visiting researchers and academics, support student mobility, and act as a forum for diplomatic and trade dialogue among different sectors. The New Zealand center at IIT Delhi will build on New Zealand’s status as a preferred education destination for students with a 71 percent increase in Indian students choosing to study in New Zealand universities last year.

Increasing Global Exposure to Students

“IIT Delhi is committed to quality education for students and pleased to be associated with New Zealand. The New Zealand center embodies our efforts to embrace internationalization, open up opportunities for new research collaborations, and increase global exposure to our students,” said Prof. Sanjeev Sanghi, Dean – Alumni Affairs and International Programmes.
