Partners with Elcom Innovation

One of India’s leading academic institution of eminence, Manipal Institute of Technology, has today announced their partnerships with Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) in Malaysia, National Agriculture and Food Research Organization (NARO) in Japan, and Institute of Defence Scientists and Technologists (IDST) and Elcom Innovation. The MoUs are aimed to encourage skilled based learning as well as create a robust platform for international knowledge exchange. 

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Universiti Malaysia Pahang and National Agriculture and Food Research Organization – Japan, will enable students and faculty at MIT to collaborate on research projects, redefine pedagogies and enhance knowledge exchange. On the other hand, the partnership with Institute of Defence Scientists and Technologists and Elcom Innovation will integrate work-based learning into the curriculum. 

Sharing his view on the recent collaborations, Dr. (Cdr). Anil Rana, Director MIT, 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.” 

“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”, added Dr. Rana, Director MIT. 

With NARO, a primary institute in Japan focused on R&D in agriculture and food, students of MIT Manipal will be get enhanced opportunities for agricultural research and exchange of bio specimens. This collaboration with NARO would also pave the way for a closer relationship with Japan, a country known for its agricultural, farming, and fishing expertise.

On the other hand, the MoUs with academic institutes such as Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) and Institute of Defence Scientists and Technologists (IDST), and with industry player like Elcom Innovation (which specializes in the fields of technology), will not only foster technical knowledge among faculty and students but will also lead to innovative M Tech courses focused on electronics, communications and defence technology.

These partnership marks MIT’s 05th MoU in FY 22-23. Over the course of the last year, the university has made many strategic partnerships with domestic and international universities, industry bodies, international research organizations and many more to accelerate skill based and research oriented enhanced learning for the students.
