WelTec’s School of Engineering recently hosted Senior Professor Rajiv Gupta from the Civil Engineering Department of Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) Pilani in Rajasthan, India’s largest state by area. BITS Pilani is one of India’s most well recognised private institutes of technology and was recently conferred Institute of Eminence status, one of only six institutions that have been given this distinction by the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India.
Prof Gupta is internationally recognised for his research in Water and Waste Engineering and for the past fifteen years has executed a number of projects funded by India’s Department of Science and Technology and by the World Bank.
Prof Gupta spent time visiting the WelTec Engineering facilities and met with senior staff of the School of Engineering to discuss potential collaborative projects. He noted the impressive facilities and the quality of WelTec Engineering students’ projects, which are completed with and for local industry during the final year of study.
Prof Gupta’s visit is a welcome step towards future collaboration between WelTec and BITS Pilani. In exploring how the two institutes can work together, discussion focussed on combined research outcomes, exchange of staff, and opportunities for student cross over.
