Innovative Collaboration: 50 MoUs Mark Taiwan-India Academic Partnership

Taiwanese universities are collaborating with Indian Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) to cultivate talent, facilitate joint degree programs, particularly in the field of VLSI circuits and systems, enhance university cooperation in the fields of semiconductor curriculum and programs, and broaden people-to-people links between the two countries.

11 Taiwanese universities, led by Deputy Minister of Education Dr Mon-chi Lio, recently visited New Delhi to attend the ‘Indo-Taiwan Educational Cooperation Forum on Semiconductor’ organized by All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) on November 19, 2023, and signed 50 Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) with Indian institutes for future talent cultivation cooperation.

AICTE and 10 Indian universities were invited to visit Taiwan in September, followed by a Taiwan delegation’s visit last week. The delegation included 17 members, including Deputy Minister of Education, Dr. Mon-chi Lio, Deputy Director-general of the Department of International and Cross-strait Education, and 14 leaders from 11 top Taiwanese universities. A total of 50 Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) were signed between the two universities.

Delegates visited the Greater Noida semiconductor industry, STMicroelectronics, and NIET, participating in the ‘Inventors Challenge 2023’ event. They interacted with students who created semiconductor-related solutions.

Prof Rangan Banerjee, director of IIT Delhi, discussed educational collaborations between IIT Delhi and Taiwan’s universities. Some delegates agreed to have students exchange with IIIT Delhi and facilitate joint degree programs, particularly in VLSI Circuits and Systems.

Delegations visited Delhi Technological University (DTU) and held meetings with vice-chancellor Prof S Indu, department heads, and students. They also visited ECE and electrical departments’ laboratories.

The Indian government aims to increase university cooperation in semiconductor curriculum and programs. Taiwan’s MOE is introducing more opportunities and scholarships for Indian students to study in Taiwan.

The visit broadened people-to-people links between the two countries and the delegation expressed gratitude to AICTE for its success. The visit also highlighted the significant increase in Indian students and skilled workforce in Taiwan.
