Indian Institute of Technology Madras is partnering with European Union in technical education called ‘Dual Education,’ which merges classroom learning with industrial experience. This envisages students employed in Industry as full-time workers rather than interns as a part of curriculum.

TEEDE (Towards Excellence in Engineering Curricula for Dual Education), a European Union and ‘Erasmus +’-funded consortium of Universities in Europe and Asia, is working to take this model to developing countries. Rajesh Nair, Associate Professor IIT Madras, selected as the coordinator for this project.

A three-day session began on Thursday at IIT Madras with delegates from universities in India, Russia, Europe and Asia taking part to provide inputs on methodological guidelines of professions and qualifications. The expected outcome is to formulate an upgraded curriculam for engineering education in developing countries based on economic needs of respective countries, says a press release from IIT Madras.
