An MoU was signed on August 28, 2017 between the institute and Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST) to institute a programme offering a double Master’s degree. A delegation from JAIST led by President Dr Tetsuo Asano visited IITGN to sign the MoU.

The delegation was joined by Prof Shungo Kawanishi from JAIST, who is currently a Scholar-in-Residence at IITGN. This programme would allow select students from both the institutes to concurrently earn two Master’s degrees, one from IITGN, and one from JAIST. Both the institutes have shared an extremely vibrant partnership since 2013 when the first MoU on academic exchange was signed between the two.
