International Relations Cell
The International Relations Cell (IRC) IIT Kharagpur is a student body, working under the Office of International Relations. They are a team of students working to promote internationalisation at IIT Kharagpur. Our vision is simple and clear- Internationalization of IIT Kharagpur. Our efforts are centered towards helping IIT Kharagpur grab a place among the top universities across the world. We attempt to do this by providing an impetus and an appropriate platform for dedicated young minds to formulate and implement proposals for creating opportunities for international exchange of students as well as academic staff with high quality institutions.
History[edit | edit source]
The International Relations Cell (IRC) was established in 2015 under the aegis of the Dean of Alumni Affairs and International Relations.
Activities[edit | edit source]
IRC works in tandem with the staff and faculty members associated with the International Relations Office on the development and management of a variety of international partnerships, linkages and networks. They are effective in identifying international research and internship programs; student exchange programs; and foreign training programs.
Achievements[edit | edit source]
We are working towards innovation. We feed on ideas and turn them into reality at the Institute level. Taking new initiatives and working on every individual’s idea is something that makes us unique.
Paths trodden to internationalize our institute:
International Semester Exchange Program: Exchange of students between IIT Kharagpur and foreign institutes for a semester or two to have an enriching experience of studying in a foreign university while paying the fees of their respective host institutes.
Foreign Training Portal: Launch of a unique portal facilitating the process of getting foreign internships.
Newsletter: The International Relations Cell Newsletter is an initiative to summarize all the open International Scholarships and competitions along with Indo-X Grants that are available for professors.
There are a lot of other exciting proposals we are working on to improve IIT KGP's stand on the international front.
