Speaking at the occasion of the signing ceremony in Hyderabad, Professor Guy Littlefair- the Pro Vice Chancellor International and the Dean of Design and Creative Technologies at AUT said “I have had a personal connection with IIT Hyderabad since 2014 and through this partnership there will be wonderful opportunities for students on both sides as well as faculty to collaborate on research platforms. Today, we signed a new MOU setting the bar even higher for our joint aspirations to form the strongest of strategic alliances. It’s an honour and privilege to be associated for so many years and I look forward to delivering significant outcomes from these partnerships”.
