How is aerospace engineering at IIT Bombay

Indian top university visits TU Braunschweig Delegation of the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay signs cooperation agreement

The Technical University of Braunschweig has been working with the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IITB) for many years. On March 7th and 8th, 2019, eleven members of the IITB will visit the TU Braunschweig, including the upcoming president, Prof. Subhasis Chaudhuri. The meeting aims to expand the partnership. The delegation will get an insight into the work and life in Braunschweig. A tangible result will be the signing of the agreement on joint doctoral supervision.

The IIT Bombay is technically and scientifically oriented and offers 15 specialist areas - including aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering and industrial design. The state institution with around 4,800 students has 19 multidisciplinary centers, a school of excellence and four interdisciplinary programs.

The TU Braunschweig and the ITTB have been working together in research and teaching for years. The TU Braunschweig has been arranging IITB students for research internships since 2011. There has been a cooperation agreement between the universities since 2012. Prof. Daniel B. Werz from Organic Chemistry is visiting professor at the IITB and there has already been an exchange of doctoral students with his group. In 2018, an interdisciplinary delegation from the TU Braunschweig visited the IITB to explore future fields of cooperation.

The agreement

The existing cooperation was documented in 2012 by a cooperation agreement that was renewed in 2017. On March 7, 2019, an additional agreement will be signed to promote the exchange of doctoral students and expand the international partnership.
