The internationally renowned Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur, one of the world’s top universities, has just established an ‘overseas hub’ in New York City, mere blocks away from Pace’s NYC Campus. Their NYC center will facilitate faculty hiring, increase internship opportunities and jobs for students, expand networks between other universities and companies, and contribute in other ways.
The new center at Williams Street was inaugurated by Director of IIT Kanpur, Prof. Indraneel Manna and the Deans Prof. Prabhat Munshi and Prof. Manindra Aggarwal.
Seidenberg’s Dean, Amar Gupta, and other senior representatives of Pace University had multiple meetings with the visiting delegation from IITK this week to discuss various avenues for close collaboration between the two universities. This will provide an additional avenue for students and faculty to exchange ideas and foster innovation in different aspects of computer science and information technology.
