PEC for masters programme with French body
Chandigarh, March 21st 2006 Tribune News Service
If deliberations between heads of a leading French research institute and Punjab Engineering College are to be believed, the latter is interested in a starting a joint masters programme with the former.
To be instituted in collaboration with the ESIGELEC School of Engineering France, the programme will place a special emphasis on embedded technology and offer PEC students an opportunity to study in France and explore research options there. The PEC Director has said he will raise the issue in Board meeting shortly.
It is significant that Mr Cyril Marteaux from ESIGELEC who was in Chandigarh today had made the suggestion during his last visit to Chandigarh. He said talks were progressing well and a programme might actually become a reality soon. The programme in question would focus on Embedded Systems.
Mr Marteaux said the proposal for signing the agreement had now gained momentum as exhibited through the recent statement made by Prof Vijay Gupta. Professor Gupta, according to a press statement issued by Alliance Francaise (which Mr Marteaux visited today), said the joint masters in Embedded Systems with ESIGELEC would be an ideal platform to launch high potential international engineers.
Additionally, he mentioned that the proposal for the joint masters would shortly come up for Board of Directors' discussion during the next meeting.
Later , Mr Marteaux addressed PEC students to present to them various engineering specialisations and research options available in France. He also told them about ESIGELEC which ranks amongst the classical French engineering "Grandes Ecoles".
