Sept. 7, 2011 - PRLog -- Lovely Professional University has signed two important MOUs with top Institutions of New Zealand, Unitec Institute of Technology (UIT), Auckland & Waikato Institute of Technology (WIT), Hamilton. These MOUs are Inter-Institutional Agreement of Co-operation for Programmes of Staff Student Exchange, Collaborative Research, Conferences and seminars, Co-operative learning, Development and Application of Educational Methods and Technologies, Visiting scholar programmes, Short-term training Programmes and projects etc. In this regard, detailed and separate MOUs have been duly signed by Dr. Rick Ede, President and Chief Executive, UIT & Dr. Monica Gulati, Registrar, LPU, on one hand and between Mr Stewart Brougham, Director Inter-nationalization, WIT, & Er. Aman Mittal, Deputy Director, Division of International Affairs, LPU on the other, on strategic level. Under this, the Institutions will also work towards developing jointly accredited programmes and in establishing academic programmes by means of open and distance education.

It is worth telling that these MOUs are in continuation to an active delegation participation from eight universities of New Zealand at the University, in the month of April, 2011, which kept streamlining the collaborative purposes, since then. However, the coveted MOUs have only been signed with these two most promising and students favouring Universities.

In this context, the Chancellor, Mr Mittal said: "We always want to accord maximum global exposure to our students as well as the members of staff focusing, mainly and primarily, on real world education. This all is under a strong motive to provide global-oriented work-ready human resource to the Industry world around." He added: "Such MOUs with world-class Institutes are indeed on these lines. Now, the students are expected to utilize this effort of ours fully for the betterment of themselves as well as the society."

On contacting Dr. Rick Ede of UIT, he said: "India is a market with huge growth potential, especially, in the education sector. Indian engineering and management institutions have doubled from 2005-06 to 2010-11. This rapid growth represents the demand for professional, job-oriented degrees, as these programmes have a relatively higher employability. Understanding the same, we have come to LPU in India intending to work-around such requirements. Similarly, Mr. Stewart Brougham from 'Wintec' said: "We are looking forward to start working in India to bring and build forth a stronger work-force community through education, research and career development."

It is worth illustration that 'Unitec' is a member of the International Association of Universities; whereas, 'Wintec' is one of New Zealand's largest Institutes of Technology/Polytechnics (ITPs). Both of these are leading provider of high quality, vocational and professional education across a wide range of skills that are highly sought after around the world.
