Nauni, Western Sydney Universities hold discussions on Dual Degree Programs

A delegation comprising two members from Western Sydney University (WSU) recently visited Dr. YS Parmar University of Horticulture and Forestry, Nauni to hold further discussions on dual degree programs and potential collaborations between the institutions. Professor Linda Taylor, Pro Vice Chancellor of WSU, was joined by Kopal, a representative from WSU’s New Delhi office, for the one-day visit to Nauni. Professor Rajeshwar Singh Chandel, Vice Chancellor of Nauni, welcomed the visiting delegation. Notably, the Deans of all four constituent colleges, including Neri and Thunag, along with statutory officers of the university actively participated in the discussions.

The dialogue encompassed various academic initiatives such as 3+1 and 3+1+1 degree programs, as well as dual degree offerings in MSc and PhD programs. Additionally, discussions regarding fellowship opportunities and eligibility criteria were conducted in detail. Subsequently, Professor Linda Taylor engaged with undergraduate students of Nauni, shedding light on the collaborative efforts between the two universities and the fellowship avenues accessible to them.

Last year, the two universities formalized their partnership through a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), aimed at jointly offering dual degree programs in BSc, MSc, and doctoral levels. These programs are tailored to enrich students’ employability, skill sets, and comprehension of technology-driven fields such as horticulture, forestry, biotechnology, and food technology. Furthermore, the partnership entails collaborative research ventures, joint academic activities including conferences, seminars, and symposia, shared publications and scholarly endeavours, collaborative academic programs, joint curriculum development, and opportunities for both faculty and student mobility.
