Five B Tech students of Giani Zail Singh Punjab Technical University Campus, Bathinda, have been selected to visit Dongguk University, Seoul, South Korea, for a period of six months under an international collaborative programme.
The students are Amit Madahar, Gurveer Kaur, Ramandeep Kaur, Neeraj Kumar (textile branch), and Kamalpreet Kaur (CSE branch).The students were selected on the basis of good academic performance throughout the degree programme.
Dr Sanjiv Aggarwal, dean, training and placement, of the campus, said the opportunity for the students had been created because of the personal initiative taken by PTU vice-chancellor Rajneesh Arora.
The programme was negotiated with Dongguk University by PTU dean academics Buta Singh during his recent visit to South Korea.
As per the communication received from the Korean university, the Korean government has agreed to provide scholarship to the five students to undertake the study/training programme.
Campus director Jasbir Singh Hundal congratulated the students and hoped more such international collaborative programmes would be planned and executed during the coming months to give international exposure to budding engineers at an early stage of their professional training.
