Directorate of International Collaborations and Partnership Management (ICPM) at Ramaiah University of Applied Sciences (RUAS) seeks to enable RUAS students in developing early global professional competence.
RUAS Leadership and Faculties have built partnerships, collaborations and exchange programs with many prominent universities around the world. In the framework of those partnerships, ICPM offers to our students the Study Abroad Program ranging from 2 weeks to a few months at the Universities in the US, Europe, and Russia in the areas of Engineering and Technology, Faculty of Art and Design, Management and Commerce, Mathematical & Physical Sciences, Life and Allied Health Sciences, Dental Sciences, Pharmacy, Hospitality Management, Catering Technology and Social Sciences. Study Abroad also helps our students to experience global campus at RUAS as many participants of Study Abroad program come here from outside of India. Over 200 Students have already participated in the Study Abroad Program and this number grows every year.
As an extended way to get global professional and cultural fluency, RUAS presents our students with the Semester Abroad Program at a partner foreign University whether it is a part of UG or PG program at RUAS: St. Petersburg University of Industrial Technologies and Design, Russia (Product Design, Fashion Design, Brand Management and more), and University of Illinois, Chicago, USA (Engineering disciplines, excluding Bioengineering).
Another opportunity to get an international exposure and advance one’s studies is to sign up for blended programs for master degrees with foreign Universities: RUAS offers a path for credit opportunity for MITx MicroMasters ® credential holders in Supply Chain Management (SCM) towards the completion of the Master’s degree in MBA. In parallel, School of Social Sciences and Management, RUAS has announced that starting from 29 July 2020, Students can choose to take the MITx MicroMasters ® Program in SCM as part of their Program Concentration. The MicroMasters ® programme from MIT not only offers our Students a great opportunity to specialize in SCM, but also provides a Pathway to pursue Blended Masters Programme at MIT and other Associated Universities around the World, once application is accepted by these Schools/Universities.
PG and PhD Students at RUAS are welcome to opt for Dissertation Project-Related Work at a partner foreign University, and the program is usually customized to the specific PhD student’s requirements and to the PG Group’s scientific and project-related interests.
For the Summer break or during the Group Project term, ICPM facilitates the planning of Global Internships for our students with direct access to the best and most prestigious academic institutions for about 4 to 8 months online or blended.
The international exposure is essential to students’ professional socialization and personal development in the global world. RUAS strives to provide all aspects of education opportunities for our students. While choosing one of the global programs offered at RUAS as well as interacting with foreign students on campus in Bangalore, our students get invaluable experience and enrich their knowledge and skills which boosts their intellectual, interpersonal skills as well as their graduate profiles.
