US designs specialised courses in line with New Education Policy to facilitate Indian students

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 17 Aug 2023, 12:15 am

New Delhi/IBNS: The United States has started an educational programme in line with India's New Education Policy that would allow Indian students to pursue a one-year professional master's degree with an industrial specialisation in American universities.

The courses have been designed for science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM) disciplines.

They will start rolling in the fall semester of 2024.

Once the courses are complete, students can stay on in the US for up to three years, as per existing and applicable visa rules, to gain work experience in the industry and repay student loans.

A total of 20 American and over 15 Indian universities are already in discussion with each other about how to make the most of the initiative, with the US State Department acting as a facilitator.

The programme has been designed by Akhilesh Lakhtakia, a Jefferson Science Fellow at the State Department's South and Central Asia (SCA) bureau.

India introduced a new education policy after almost two decades through National Education Policy 2020 with aims to make education available to all Indians, making it simultaneously global in scope and focused on Indian culture and knowledge systems, and finally to garner a partnership between the student and educators.

The National Education Policy envisages an education system rooted in Indian ethos and driving the transformation of India (Bharat) into a sustainable and equitable knowledge society.
