Bhubaneswar: India is making a sustained outreach with the universities in the United States of America to build knowledge partnerships.
India’s ambassador to the US, Taranjit Singh Sandhu has intensified discussion with the US universities as part of the effort. India sends the highest number of STEM students to the United States.
“With over 200,000 Indian students in the US, and most of them in the STEM areas, collaboration in higher education, is an area of exciting possibilities. There are opportunities for student exchanges; online education; university-to-university collaborations. We hope that with its strong focus on India, UNC will take the lead in this area,” Sandhu quoted as saying by news agency PTI during his address to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.
