IIT Delhi starts Joint PhD Programme with National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) Taiwan
NEW DELHI, MAY 17: IIT Delhi and National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) Taiwan have signed an agreement to establish a Joint Doctoral Degree Program (JDP).
The agreement aims to develop an academic and student exchange between the institutions wherein PhD students who complete the program requirements will be awarded a joint degree by both institutions.
IIT Delhi Director Prof V. Ramgopal Rao and NCTU President Prof. Mau-Chung Frank Chang jointly signed the pact for the programme that will be funded by industry partners.
