Thapar University and Trinity College Dublin Announce Future Collaboration
Posted on 02 December 2014
Trinity College Dublin and Thapar University announced the intention to develop an institutional partnership at a special event in New Delhi today. The future partnership will promote academic collaboration in the key areas of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, research, and student and staff mobility. This collaboration is a central component of a major contemporisation programme that Thapar University is undertaking. It will also significantly contribute to Trinity College Dublin’s global engagement in attracting high-calibre students.
This commitment follows exploratory high-level discussions and visits by both institutions and a successful academic review in early November, 2014, by Trinity College Dublin of four Thapar University departments: Civil Engineering, Computer Science & Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering.
Trinity professors from Engineering (Civil, Electronic, and Mechanical), Computer Science and Statistics, as well as the Academic Secretary, formed part of the delegation and fully endorsed Thapar University’ s contemporisation programme.
Trinity College Dublin will benefit from collaborating with an Indian university such as Thapar University that has an ambition to be a global leader in its field. It will encourage joint research between the two institutions in areas of strength and opportunities for international mobility for faculty and students.
