Foreign Academic Link Program & Scholarships
IMSciences Centers for Excellence in Information Technology and Business in coordination with the HEC have stepped in the community of leading institutions with a long and highly valuableresearch tradition. One of the most recent achievements is its linkage program. As the Institute is committed to sustaining a close relationship with the industry, it offers a number of opportunities for coorperation and growth. Our focus on the purpose of collaborations of linkages has expanded. Previously, our international linkages aimed at knowledge synthesis and at collaboration between academics. Now, our focus has shifted to students as direct beneficiaries of the program. Currently, we aim at getting our courses accredited in such a way as to make them recognized at face value rather than resorting to third party standardized testing. In this connection, MoUs have been signed with universities in UK including the University of Southampton, University of Hull, University of Glasgow, and Coventry University.
Split-site Degree Program
The Linkage program has also been extended to MS and PhD programs. This program is known as splitsite degree program. Candidates in the split program can pursue part of their course work/research at the partner Intitutions of UK in accordance with the rules laid down in the agreement and in compliance with the requirements of the collaborating institution’s approval of the supervising and administering authorities concerned.
