Founded by The Times of India Group, the multi-faculty, research-led Bennett University started operations in August 2016.

NEW DELHI: Further strengthening its tie-ups with international universities, Bennett University sent students to academic partner schools such as Babson College, University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) and Georgia Tech. More than two dozen BTech students attended lectures, workshops, laboratories, undertook corporate visits and more by taking advantage of the global platform that was provided. “Those who’ve completed their engineering first year were selectively sent to our academic partner campuses for enhancing their overall practical experience,” said Bennett University vice chancellor Dr Yaj Medury. “All students received a certification for this programme from the respective institute. We think there is an increased confidence level in these students upon going to these schools.” Divyaansh Devarriya, 19, said his experience at Georgia Tech included an observational research programme besides various seminars and that he was able to meet several professors during the time he spent there. “We were eight of us from computer science/electronics disciplines and the idea was to give us knowledge in various fields including potential research options,” he said. Devarriya and his classmates also got some hands-on experience in developing code. “The exposure helped us understand topical areas that we can pursue research in as well,” he said.

Another student who attended Babson College’s ‘Babson Build’ was equally happy with her experience. Vidhi Mansharamani and her fellow students were exposed to the programme based on the principles of entrepreneurial thought and action, which prepares students to leverage the power of entrepreneurship to accelerate their potential and create new opportunities for the future over a two-week period.  “The practical experience was the next level. I’m still not over it, since with it we’ve got a new perspective of business,” Mansharamani said. Prem Jotwani went to Omaha and said he attended workshops ranging from American politics to cybersecurity, design and creativity. The two-week Road 2 Omaha programme had courses such as negotiations in business and life, social informatics and creativity, and the design process, among others.  Founded by The Times of India Group, the multi-faculty, research-led Bennett University started operations in August 2016 with the promise of making students “life and career ready”. The university offers programmes in engineering, management, media and law. ET is part of the Times of India Group.- Courtesy
