Dr Tom Nolan, International Academic Network Manager, Institute of Technology Blanchardstown (ITB), Dublin 15, Ireland visited The NorthCap University (NCU), Gurugram on 24 February 2017 to review the ongoing collaboration between the two institutions and to discuss the roadmap for possible expansion in the collaborating domain. During the visit he was accompanied by Dr Latika Singh, Head, Dept of CSE & IT and Mr Manoj Kumar Gopaliya, Coordinator, NCU-ITB collaboration.
Dr Tom Nolan’s visit started with an interaction with NCU delegates representing the Departments of EECE, ME and SOM to discuss possibilities of student exchange for various programmes offered in their respective departments/school. Dr Nolan informed that ITB has agreed to offer entry to our B Tech (Mechanical) students in their BEngg (H)-Mechatronics programme after successful completion of their 3rd Year at NCU. This requires a one week of bridge course in the area of Control Engineering at ITB after joining. Formal communication in this regard will be made by ITB very soon. It was also agreed to send course curriculum of EECE programmes to ITB for possible mapping for student exchange in B Engg (H) and M Engg/MSc Programmes at ITB.
This is followed by exchange of the MoU in VC's chamber which marginally modifies the existing MoU to incorporate UGC guidelines of India, related to student exchange programmes.
