IITRA, Mauritius campus to start classes from Nov


The premier International Institute of Technology Research Academy (IITRA), Mauritius campus is all set to start functioning from November 2014. It is the joint venture of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi and Mauritius Research Council.

IITRA offers full-time and part-time Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) courses, which are

  • Electronics / Electrical Engineering
  • Computer Science Engineering

Earlier, IITRA had planned to start Master of Science (M.Sc) and Ph.D programmes. Later, it had been decided to start undergraduate (UG) programmes.

Through Memorandum of understanding (MoU), Mauritius Research Council (MRC) of Republic of Mauritius and the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IITD) India, have intended to establish principles of cooperation with respect to the development and implementation on IIT-like institutions in Mauritius. The institute is officially named as "International Institute of Technology Research Academy, Mauritius" which is initially located at Bel Air Mauritius and later will move to its main campus in 2015.

About IITRA:

One of the objectives of establishing an Indian Institute of Technology (IIT)-like Technology Education Institute in Mauritius is to provide world-class undergraduate and graduate education up to the Ph.D. degree in various technology disciplines that can be a passport for jobs in the international market. Such an institute will provide international quality higher education not only for Mauritian citizens, but also to several other groups of students such as those belonging to the neighbouring countries of eastern and southern Africa and also the widespread Indian diaspora who may not have access to international quality education in their own countries.
