USC and IISc Bangalore
USC Viterbi School of Engineering and the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, India, has established a partnership for a broad spectrum of educational and research collaborations between the two institutions, including student exchange, and joint educational and research programs in targeted areas, and faculty exchanges for short term and long term.
One of the innovative aspects of this partnership is the collaborative PhD program between the two institutions, where a student gets PhD from one institution and spends significant amount of time at the other institution during the course of study, with faculty advisors at both institutions.
The key objective of this partnership is to strengthen research collaborations and scientific interaction between students and faculty, to stimulate active sharing of scientific knowledge and to provide an international experiential learning opportunity for students and faculty in both entities.
