IIT Madras, ranked 1st in NIRF ranking 2022, is looking into options to bring its master’s programmes to foreign shores by partnering with reputable international universities under a novel model, a top official of the institute reported. This is an alternative to setting up campuses abroad.

IIT Madras is also gearing up to welcome 45 international students to its campus. These students are going to pursue a full-time postgraduate degree. 

“We are constantly trying to reach out to foreign universities and form research networks, start publishing together and improve. This cannot happen overnight, but we are slowly and steadily improving. We are also opening a young international faculty scheme where we are trying to invite people from abroad to come and take up teaching assignments, “IIT Madras Director Prof V Kamakoti said in an interview on Friday.
