As part of the MoU, students from India will visit Thailand to experience their culture as well as to learn from their institutions
Ajeenkya D Y Patil University (ADYPU) will impart education to Thai students in the fields of Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR).
In this regard, ADYPU has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with five Thai colleges including Charansanitwong technological college, Chonburi technological college, Tharn technological college, Pongsawadi technological college and Ayutthaya technological commercial college.
As part of the MoU, ADYPU will enable advanced education to the students of Thailand as well as India in the areas of AI, ML, IoT, AR and VR, among others.
In addition, students from India will visit Thailand to experience their culture as well as to learn from their institutions. From this collaboration, nearly 50 Indian and Thai students will be going to benefit every year.
ADYPU is leading its education 4.0 model and is providing education across different interdisciplinary new-age fields like technology, management, design and film & media.
The MoU was inked in the presence of Hrridaysh Deshpande, Director, ADYPU and the Thai officials.
Addressing new age challenges
Speaking on the occasion, Deshpande, said, “As an innovation university, we are always keenly observing the changes around us and responding to these changes with new ways of thinking. Education is not only about doing but also thinking. Therefore, we feel we should address the new age challenges with wisdom more than knowledge.”
He further said that in today’s complex world, the problems are not linear, therefore, the solutions to these problems may lie outside the domain of disciplines. There is a need to reframe these challenges. Instead of addressing the symptoms, we have to go to the root cause of the problem and solve it.
“We are looking at developing a model of what to learn and how to learn rather than what to teach and how to teach,” he added.
