University of Michigan, US, will send its eighteen students to India in 2014 to work on various Information technology projects, students will join the projects in summer and will be a part of it for eight weeks.

They will be coming to India under the programme called 'Global Information Engagement' run by the university's School of Information.

University's provost office has already assigned $1.8 million for this programme.

"The School of Information has strong ties with India, and our new Global Information Engagement Programme will allow our students to strengthen that bond with hand-on experience, solving problems by serving the global community even before they graduate" says Jeffery Mackie-Mason, dean of the School of Information.

Students will work on projects like smartphone application to book train tickets for Mumbai local trains, a language learning application for deaf students in India, and an online repository for consultation for human rights for a Banglore lawyers collective.

"Once the students groups choose their projects, we will work with each team so they will have a customised training programme tailored to their projects" says Joyojeet Pal, an Indian who is the faculty lead of the programme.
