ABOUT IR CELL

IIT Kharagpur, as an Institute of Eminence, has realized that producing industry competitive and academically strong graduates alone cannot be it’s ultimate objective. It needs to craft students who possess leadership qualities and will eventually become entities who will change the world. For this to happen, it is necessary that the students showcase themselves on world platforms and in-turn gain the much-cherished exposure towards new work-cultures. International experience is crucial for holistic development as it opens our minds to new possibilities and alternate modulus operandi. Therefore, we believe that the experience of living and working abroad will be paramount to this endeavour.

Foreign Training Program provides a unique opportunity to undergraduate students from IIT Kharagpur to conduct research under the supervision of professors of eminent universities abroad. Through this program we have started formalization of the foreign training application procedure and we aim to streamline and increase the efficiency of the foreign training application procedure in IIT Kharagpur. FTP serves to provide students with cross-cultural exposure and opportunities to expand their horizons through research extensive summers.
