Students of LICET will have ample opportunities for international exposure through student-exchange programs as well as higher studies in universities abroad to gain confidence to face the future with preparedness and readiness. Apart from ICAM in France, our students have opportunities to go to USA, Germany, UK and Spain for summer projects.
In addition to having ICAM as its partner Institute, LICET has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the following Universities, for academic and research collaboration.
1. Institut catholique d’arts et métiers, France
2. Comillas Pontifical University, Spain
3. Heilbronn University, Germany
4. Fairfield University, United States
5. Saint Louis University, United States
6. Shibaura Institute of Technology, Japan
The scope of the MoU encompasses sending select students to these Universities during summer to do some research projects. Students would be given research topics and asked to work under the supervision of a Professor. Some of the works done in these universities have been published by our students in International Journals.
