The program is based on the idea that the graduates of UQIDAR will spend quality time both in India and Australia. Students from India will probably spend three years at IIT-Delhi and one year at UQ, and the international students from Australia will spend three years at UQ and one year at IIT-Delhi. This is why IIT Delhi and Queensland University’s joint PhD proposal has come up.
IIT Delhi and the University of Queensland (UQ), the 50 largest international universities, set up the UQ-IITD Academy of Research (UQIDAR) to operate a collaborative PhD solution to assist academics along a broad variety of disciplines to provide wider impact. The UQIDAR plans to educate a significant number of students under the collaborative Graduate program under the supervision of academics at both University of Queensland, popularly known as UQ and IIT Delhi. Students will study at the University of Queensland and IIT Delhi. This program shelters the idea of IIT Delhi and Queensland University’s joint PhD option.
The approach that is now 2 years old, has indeed drawn more than 65 leading PhD academics in various subjects. At a stable equilibrium, the UQIDAR goal is to have approximately 300 incoming students in the collaborative Graduate program over the next 1 decade.
At the launch of the permanent department of UQIDAR at IIT Delhi, Prof. V Ramgopal Rao who is the official Director of IIT Delhi said that IIT Delhi puts clear emphasis on the topics which are Link Internationalization, Interdisciplinary Research and Industry.
He also added that the Indian cooperation with the University of Queensland, Australia, has fantastic arms and all three components. UQIDAR draws a few of the brightest minds and most of these graduates are now doing cutting-edge studies on topics of international importance.
The UQIDAR or the IIT Delhi and Queensland University’s joint PhD program will be based on interdisciplinary themes which include the five identified themes that are healthy ageing, feeding the world, resilient environment, technology for tomorrow, and transforming societies.
