The Indian Institute of Engineering Science and Technology (IIEST) and Indian Paint Association (IPA) signed an MoU here on Friday for a masters programme in Coating Sciences & Technology for the academic session starting July 2017. Subir Bose, former President, IPA, and Prof Kalyan Kumar Bhar, Dean, Research & Development, IIEST, signed the MoU in the presence of Prof Ajoy Kumar Ray, Director, IIEST and some leading members of IPA. As per the MoU, IPA will help IIEST frame a curriculum in a more industry-specific manner. It will also organise developmental programmes for faculty members helping them in getting greater exposures to industrial problems.

IPA will also develop innovative technology solutions in related areas. Joint research projects would also be undertaken and joint academic activities will also be formulated. Internship and placements of students are the two major outcomes expected from this partnership. During and after completion of the Masters Programme in Coating Sciences & Technology, IPA and IIEST will jointly explore means to provide internships and jobs to students. "This collaborative education and research programme will go a long way in creating appropriate manpower who will be able to serve the coating industry – an extremely important segment of the manufacturing industry. Our collaboration will be based on development of advanced technology in the area of corrosion and coating," Prof Ajoy Kumar Ray, Director, IIEST, said. Subir Bose said: "India is progressing towards rapid industrialisation and the requirement for technical persons is increasing on a regular basis. This collaboration is an excellent example of effective and meaningful partnership between an industry association and a leading educational institution.
