IIT-Roorkee, UAlberta sign agreement for JDPs


DEHRADUN: The Indian Institutes of Technology, Roorkee has signed an agreement with the University of Alberta in Canada to provide Joint Doctoral Degree Programs.

The JDPs create a two-way flow for academic exchange between the two institutions, a press statement by IIT-Roorkee said.

The collaboration will give students of the two institutes a chance to undertake research for six months or one year and providing them international exposure and special certification upon graduation.
IIT-Roorkee is one of the three IITs partnering with an external university to provide Indian and Canadian students with JDPs.
“This agreement begins a new chapter in strengthening India-Canada ties in the education sector. IIT Roorkee looks forward to bolster and formalise our long-standing research collaboration with UAlberta since the 1980s,” IIT-Roorkee director Ajit Chaturvedi said.
“Apart from improving the quality of exposure of our students, the JDP agreement will hopefully catapult our research collaboration to greater heights,” he said.
