Recently AICTE and Taiwan have joined hands to take over the academic education collaboratively. This collaboration will benefit the Indian students pursuing their degrees in Technical courses, to get international guidance in new emerging domains such as AI, ML, 3D Printing etc. The international opportunities to the students will be offered by Taipei Economic and Cultural Centre in India, which has initiated the collaboration.
Currently, around 2000 Indian students are getting acknowledged in technical education from the universities of Taiwan. The aim of the meet-up between two countries is to provide hands-on experience to the Indian students in various fields so that they can develop machines and software and bring it back to India, explains TECC ambassador Chung-Kwang Tien.
Even the students are presently learning the international teaching of Taiwan in Indian institutes such as Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras, Jamia Millia Islamia, OP Jindal Global University etc.
“India is the hub of bright students and through faculty-student exchange programmes and scholarships we aim to build a strong academic relationship with India, which will strengthen the economic and socio-cultural co-operation as well,” stated Tien.
Apart from the international collaboration AICTE is also planning to establish new technical institutes in 9 emerging technologies including Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT), blockchain, robotics, quantum computing, data sciences, cybersecurity, 3D Printing, and design AR/VR.
These institutes will be accredited by NAAC (National Assessment and Accreditation Council) or NBA (National Board of Accreditation).
The decision of establishment has been thought through so that changing demands of industry can be met and students can be trained in advanced technologies.
To make the faculty members technically sound, various workshops are being conducted in NITs and IITs since January so that before the commencement of the new institutes the faculty become expertise in the field of their teachings.
AICTE will start accepting the applications from new technical colleges from November 2019 , who are looking forward to introduce the new courses of emerging technologies in their campus.
