RAJIV GANDHI Proudyogiki Vishwavidyalaya (RGPV) may go in for a collaboration with the Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok, on the Green Energy Project including 1MW energy generation on RGTU campus through Solar Wind Hybrid.
AIT will also be interested in bio-diesel developments at RGTU for bio-diesel production through bio-enzyme applications. The possibility of this collaboration was discussed during the recent visit of RGPV vice-chancellor Prof P B Sharma to chair the Knowledge Management Session at the Global Conference on Flexible System Management.
During the meeting, AIT President Prof Irandost was impressed with the RGPV’s vision of a Knowledge University. Both Prof Sharma and Prof Irandost also explored the possibility of starting sequential masters programme for engineering faculty in information technology, technology management and bio- technology so as to build up faculty capacity.
Summer and winter internship of students of both institutes will also be possible. The collaboration between RGPV and AIT would foster world-class research in areas of high relevance to India and Thailand in addition to creating an international mindset among students and faculty of RGTU, Prof Sharma said.
Chairing the knowledge management session at the global conference, Prof Sharma emphasised its importance and said it was absolutely essential to develop capabilities.
Professors from University of Alabama, IISC Bangalore, IET, Hyderabad, IIT Bombay, MDI Gurgaon, AIT Bangkok and other reputed institutions in India and abroad presented papers on managing implicit as well as explicit knowledge in learning organisations.
