Meanwhile the partnership with IDST and Elcom innovations will be integrating a work-based learning into the curriculum. This collaboration aims to foster technical knowledge among faculty and students but will also lead to master of technology (MTech) courses on electronics, communications and defence technology.

Sharing his view on the recent collaborations, MIT, director, Anil Rana, said: “At MAHE/MIT, our undivided focus has been to create an enriched learning experience for both our students and faculty. Internationalization of education, especially post the COVID-19 pandemic, is a crucial element globally. In fact, it is one of the key themes for MAHE this academic year. Over the last 10 years, we have partnered with 80+ international institutions across practices. This association with NARO and UMP is an extension of our efforts to build strong research capabilities and to develop joint learning programs.”

He further added, “Strengthening India’s defence technology is a key instrument in our Make in India vision. Over the last few years, the demand for engineers in this domain has significantly increased. At MIT, we place a strong emphasis on understanding the market dynamics and curating relevant courses for our students. The alliance with IDST and Elcom is an extension of this commitment and we are optimistic that it will create avenues for skill-based learning for our students”,
