This project would also provide exposure to the students to the real-time developments and the technological needs of the industry.

The cooperation of the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras with an initiative of European Union has generated opportunities for students to work in corporates prior to graduation. This would also help them gain experience and training that can lead to pre-placement opportunities. This project would also provide exposure to the students to the real-time developments and the technological needs of the industry.

The TEEDE (Towards Excellence in Engineering Curricula for Dual Education) initiative, an innovative thought in Technical Education for Developing Countries called ‘Dual Education’, is a syndicate of eminent Universities in Europe and Asia which has been funded by European Union and Erasmus +. The initiative unites the classroom learning with industrial experiences. Contrary to internships, which are short-term, TEEDE envisions students spending substantial amount of time active in corporates as full-time workers, rather than interns, as part of their curriculum.

IIT Madras has already developed two industry collaborations under this initiative – in Genomics research coordinated by the Department of Biotechnology, IIT Madras, and in Petroleum Engineering coordinated by the Department of Ocean Engineering, IIT Madras. The Master’s students from these departments will have the opportunity to work in companies engaged in cutting-edge research in these two fields - Genomics and Petroleum engineering.

Around 20 industry partners of this initiative attended a TEEDE Workshop held at IIT Madras today (21st January 2020). The allies of this TEEDE association are renowned universities in India, China, Finland, Belgium, Spain Russia, Italy, Germany, and Cambodia. Moreover, basis quality work, students can shift from MS to Ph.D. and they can acquire challenging work, employment, and salary all at the same time.
