RV College, Bangalore inks pact with University of Western Australia

Bangalore-based RV College of Engineering has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with University of Western Australia (UWA) for cooperation in teaching and research. The tie-up will enable the college to send students as well as faculty to the premier Australian university for pursuing their research.

On the occasion of the signing ceremony, Prof. Robyn Owens, Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the university said, "India presents a wonderful opportunity for research collaborations with UWA, since we share a unique set of common and complementary interests." According to the academician, the tie-up will help both the institutes to devise solutions for common problems with regards to agriculture, environment, biodiversity, nanotechnology and health.

The MoU will help in exchange staff, joint research activities, joint conferences and exchange of academic materials as well as exchange of students.

B.S. Satyanarayana, Principal of RV College of Engineering noted that MoU will help students who are interested in research. "We look forward to this relationship as many of our areas of interest in terms of sustainable development and renewable energy activities match with the advanced R&D activities," said the principal.

The institutes might also give dual degrees in the long run, where a student can pursue one year at RVCE and another year in Australia. However, it does not have plans to set up offshore campuses in the city or country. The university has tied up with premier institutes like IIT Kharagpur to enhance the relationships between the universities.
