As the education ecosystem evolves, global exposure for students becomes essential to help them come to grips with the problems afflicting the world. UPES has been working towards broadening students’ mindset and creating a sense of awareness and sensitivity towards the world, which can come when students are exposed to perspectives from diverse socio-cultural settings. Here’s a lowdown on the opportunities for global exposure at UPES:
International (2+2) Program with the University of Queensland
UPES and The University of Queensland, Australia, have developed a credit transfer International program that gives UPES students the opportunity to study at Australia’s leading university, The University of Queensland. The program enables engineering undergraduates to secure a degree from The University of Queensland, consistently ranked as one of Australia’s top universities. Eligible students will pursue the first two years of their course in UPES, India, before being transferred to The University of Queensland, Australia, for years 3 and 4 of the Degree Program, subject to achieving the required grades. This unique collaboration between The University of Queensland and UPES allows UPES students to secure a globally-recognized undergraduate engineering degree.

UPES also provides its students access to the best and most knowledgeable teachers and scholars from across the world through co-teaching. The university has forged collaborations with international faculty who bring fascinating insights and a wealth of experience to the university. The course curriculum and syllabus remain the same, but an international faculty provides a fresh perspective, thus enhancing the students’ exposure. There are about 50 international faculty co-teaching modules in the School of Computer Science, School of Business, School of Design and School of Law. They bring the subject knowledge and expertise in dealing with industry, government, start-ups, and cultural experiences from the UK, Germany, Israel, and Canada.
UPES also offers 50% scholarship for Post Graduate programs at its academic partner institutes in the US, the UK, Europe and Canada.
Additionally, exchange programs and internships offer students and faculty a chance to attend another university and exchange knowledge and skills, foremost among them being the University of Calgary, Canada; University of Essex, UK; Taipei Medical University, Taiwan; Taylor’s University, Malaysia, among several others.
