IIC Academy and Andhra University Team on Surveying and GIS Courses

IIC Academy president Shekhar Murthy told that they would sign an MoU with AU in a week or two for the programme. He said they would offer short-term courses ranging from 10 days to six months.

Value addition

“We will also equip AU faculty in some of the subjects,” he said. The courses would provide value addition to students from geo engineering, geology, geophysics, geography, oceanography and marine sciences.

Both institutes were also planning to take up projects jointly as part of research and development. “AU has excellent infrastructure with several disciplines specialising in geospatial sciences,” he said.

Dr. Murthy said IIC recently signed an agreement with the Centre for Coastal and Ocean Mapping, University of New Hampshire as part of academia-industry collaboration.
