Two Top Technology Institutions of New Zealand & LPU signed MOUs
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.
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;
