Semester Abroad Programmes

The Semester Abroad Program (SAP) was introduced with an aim to encourage students from both the undergraduate and postgraduate streams to pursue their final semester in a university abroad. For the final year 8th or 4th semester, 20 credit project, the interested Students go to the partner university that has selected them and spend 5-6 months there undertaking the project. With the guidance of the internal guide, they come back to finish the formalities for the completion of the course. Some of the advantages of this program to the students are:
An international exposure
A platform to work with foreign professors on cutting –edge research

An exposure to state-of-the-art-facilities abroad and the cutting edge technologies followed
A value addition to the students’ Resume
