Thus creating an ecosystem of innovation for the entire cities of Amaravati and Chennai and building a second Bay Area”.  The main aim of the strategic partnership between the two Universities is to study and practice “Technology-Centric” innovations which brings together technical depth, design methodology and a focus on societal impact.


The students and faculty will be deeply involved and also reap the benefits of this partnership. Faculty visits to the US for capacity building will be facilitated.
