The chosen fields for collaboration are Computer Science, Electronics and Business Management.

During the visit Professor Tony Wong took much interest in visiting the hi-tech labs at the Greater Noida campus and appreciated the projects developed by the students in-house as well as in consultation with the Industry. He said, “both the Institutions share the same opinion on industry-academic partnership” for the benefit of the students

Professor Tony Wong met Dr Naveen Gupta and modalities to follow the Articulation Model were discussed so that maximum number of students can enroll on to courses being offered by the University of Huddersfield. During the discussions expansion projects of IEC were also discussed which would open doors to other disciplines for collaboration in the field of Medicine, Applied Sciences and Fine Arts. Dr Gupta emphasized the need for the Indian students to be exposed to the advanced teaching and research activities which would lead to the growth of Nation.

The meeting with Dr Gupta and the International Operations Department concluded on a very positive note to step into the second stage of collaboration working towards Articulation Arrangement for the benefit of providing the finest education to IECians’ and the Indian students at large. With this arrangement in place there is no doubt that when students leave IEC and University of Huddersfield, they will be ready to take their place in the “WORLD OF WORK”
