Mechanical engineering faculty from a private Indian university will soon be pursuing their PhDs from Michigan Tech.
The new agreement with Vidya Prathisthan, located in Baramati, India, creates a 2-plus-2 PhD program in mechanical engineering for faculty, plus a 1-plus-1 master of science program for students.
Qualifying faculty will complete the first two years of their PhD program in India, where they can take Michigan Tech courses online and graduate courses from any of the Indian Institutes of Technology (ITTs). Then they will travel to the US and spend the final two years of their program conducting research with Michigan Tech faculty advisors.
