National Institute of Technology Andhra Pradesh is going to collaborate with industry partners on cutting-edge areas such as Mobile Satellite Communications, Semiconductor Design, and Power Quality in Renewable Technology.
One of the key areas of the collaboration with SCARLET is on creating secure communications and preventing any unauthorized access. The areas of collaboration with InstaSine and BITSILICA is on power quality enhancement in renewable energy systems and semiconductor design respectively.
The Institute signed the MoUs on Monday (12th July 2021), entering into a formal academia-institute collaboration with Scarlet Industries, BITSILICA, and InstaSine Power Technologies.
The three industry partners will offer free internships for NIT Andhra Pradesh Students and will explore bringing in the M.Tech. and Ph.D. students on to their respective firms’ R&D facility.
