Siddhartha Institute of Engineering and Technology (SIETK) and Siddhartha Institute of Science and Technology (SISTK), Puttur, have recently signed a memorandum of onderstanding (MoU) with University of Massachusetts Lowell to extend mutual cooperation in engineering education and research.
According to Siddhartha Group chairman K. Ashok Raju, the MoU includes the convenience to conduct joint articulations in degree programs such as the 2+2, 3+2 and 4+1 twinning programs. With this facility in place, students pursuing a four-year B.Tech course can divide the education, 2 years each, in India as well as US. The same is applicable to the remaining courses in the curriculum. Exchange of faculty and graduate students is also made possible in academic activities like joint projects, research and publications. This would help in gaining exposure on the education followed by the university. Apart from this, special short term programs and visits can be arranged to conduct joint conferences and workshops.
