At NIIT University, we believe in constantly striving to stretch our horizons. To this end, we are ably guided by our Advisory Boards.
Drawn from the pool of eminent thought leaders from across the country and cutting across disciplines, the Board of Advisors helps NU Leadership to see interconnections and perceive the interplay that exists amongst diverse domain areas, and the directions they are likely to take. The University also ensures that students get to interact with these visionaries leading to the awakening of latent ideas in them through the wide range of perspectives they bring in.
The Industry Advisory Boards (IABs) are constituted to translate the core principle of Industry-linked into actions by involving industry in relevant processes and functions of the University as equal partners. The IAB helps in narrowing the gulf that exists between academia and industry by participating in the academic functions and working with faculty on research projects. An IAB is set up for each academic programme and the members participate in the full spectrum activities from admissions to placements. The IABs will advise the NU leadership on industry trends and directions. They are expected to be innovative forums that will create new mechanisms to help students have a deeper and involved interaction with the Industry.
Given below are a few ways the IAB supports University, although the list is by no means complete.
In order to strengthen the research orientation of NIIT University and develop it into a hub of innovation, a Research Advisory Board (RAB) has been set up consisting well-known academic and industry researchers from across the world.
These leading researchers will bring to NU their deep knowledge, academic rigour and research discipline in the technologies of the future such as Robotics, Cloud Computing, Mobile Networking, High Performance Computing, Internet of Things, Cyber Security among others.
The aim of RAB will be to help drive the 'Research-driven' core principle of NU. The Board will advise and actively engage with NU on all research related matters and enable it to foster linkages and partnerships with reputed international schools of higher learning as well as R&D labs in India and abroad. Select researchers, employed in these labs will be encouraged to take up visiting/ adjunct positions at NU. RAB will facilitate a two-way interaction between the labs and NU, helping Ph.D students at the University to connect with researchers at the R&D labs. At a broader level, the RAB will help NU outline its research agenda and priorities.
