Intake/Program Information for interested faculty at IITB and Monash University
Please download the attached information flyer that provides a high level overview of the program
General Intake Information
The Academy runs 2 intakes per year, Feb-May and July- November. The following is some highlights of the year:
- Collaboration either initiated by project specifier or initiated by The Academy office
- Students (mostly from India) recruited twice a year in 2 intakes: May and Nov
- Project Specification in Feb-Mar (for May) and Jul-Aug (for November)
- Projects initiate the collaboration and must be specified before students commence
- Projects need at least one supervisor from Monash and from IITB
- Projects specify proposal, brief research aim, and capabilities required of potential student
- Students apply to projects
- Supervisors select students for their projects after an online application filtering and interviewing process
- Supervisors who know who they wish to collaborate with can write or call direct. If not
- A diagram of the intake process is presented here
How to put up a project?
A researcher from either IITB or Monash can collaborate in a number of ways. If you have a research idea but no collaborator then The Academy office can help connect you with appropriate researchers in either institution. Alternately, if you do not have a research idea as yet then simply send through your research interests and The Academy can help facilitate a match at either institution.
Also once you have a project:
- advertise the projects on your websites
- get your collaborators to advertise it on their websites
- have a Video Conference workshop with collaborators from IITB to get a greater sense of expectations and common interests
- float more projects
- eventually get a delegation to visit so as to intensify collaborations
Project Proposal Template
Please use the attached project template to specify your research problem. The key aspects of the template include:
- Project topic and outline
- Capability statements required of students.
- Selection of keywords and clusters that best describes the project (see below)
- Proposed budget for the project to be submitted for approval
The Academy has created some clusters to better describe submitted research projects. This will aid in a more streamlined student recruitment process and other benefits for categorising the research that is undertaken at The Academy.
- Material Science/Engineering (including Nano, Metallurgy)
- Energy, Green Chem, Chemistry, Catalysis, Reaction Eng
- Math, CFD, modelling, Manufacturing
- CSE, IT, optimization, Data, Sensors, Systems, Signal Processing, Control
- Earth Sciences and Civil Engineering (Geo, Water, Climate)
- Bio, Stem Cells, Bio Chem, Pharma, Food
- Semi-Conductors, Optics, Photonics, Networks, Telecomm, Power Eng
- Design, HSS
The Academy has developed a set of keywords that correspond with its research clusters. Applying keywords to projects provide further detail of the research being conducted at The Academy.
