Greater NOIDA: Shiv Nadar University, India’s leading multidisciplinary and research-focused university, has entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Network “n+i” of Engineering Institutes in France, a not-for-profit association that brings together about 50 French engineering institutes of higher education. The five-year agreement cements the joint aim of the two institutions to pursue academic and educational exchange as well as research collaboration in fields related to science, engineering, technology and management.
The partnership enables students of Shiv Nadar University at the undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral levels to participate in training programs, semester exchanges and ‘study abroad projects’ across the consortium of 50 engineering institutions in France. Reciprocally, Shiv Nadar University will welcome students from Network “n+i” institutes to various programs that it offers.
Shiv Nadar University’s Dean of International Partnerships, Professor & Head – Department of Economics, Dr. Partha Chatterjee, said: “In an increasingly connected and globalised world, it is our constant effort to bring opportunities of meaningful international exposure to our students. We are delighted to partner the Network ‘n+i’ of Engineering Institutes in this endeavour, who share our objective of bringing together best practices and quality standards in education. We are excited to provide great opportunities for students who are seeking to gain a vital global perspective to shape their ideas and make them effective problem-solvers for the future.”
“This new agreement opens the way for new avenues of collaboration between the consortium ‘n+i’ gathering 50 highly ranked French engineering institutions and Shiv Nadar University. We have appreciated for many years the cooperation with Shiv Nadar University and are pleased to see this University being now chosen as an Institution of Eminence“, said Dr. Georges Santini, Executive Director of the “n+i” Consortium.
Network “n+i” is recognized by general interest and was created in 1997 under the initiative of the French Conférence des Directeurs des Ecoles Françaises d’Ingénieurs (CDEFI). It brings together about 50 French Engineering institutions of higher education (Arts et Métiers Paristech, INSA (s), Polytech (s), ENPC, etc.) who have chosen to mutualize their international cooperation efforts to attract and welcome high-caliber foreign students, who will be the future top executives of French and foreign companies over the world.
