NEW DELHI: Deakin University Australia has announced that it will start its academic programmes in mid-2024 at its India campus. The Deakin University Australia in India’s GIFT city campus will offer programmes including master of cyber security and master of business analytics initially before expanding to degrees from the faculties of science, engineering and built environment, and business and law.
The campus, according to statement issued today, aims to equip postgraduate students with the skills and knowledge in technology and business which are needed to excel in the rapidly advancing digital economy, not just in India but across the world.
“Set to embody the very latest in cutting-edge technology, the proposed campus promises to be a game-changer, revolutionising the way in which universities and industries collaborate to shape the future of work. And it is poised to play a crucial role in fulfilling GIFT City’s ambitious goal of producing a stream of job-ready graduates, primed to make their mark in the fast-paced world of technology and business,” it added.
Deakin University programmes in India, academic standards
The international branch campus, the statement added, will be operated on the basis of the standards and requirements equivalent to those at the home campus in Australia. The programmes offered will be identical to what is currently being offered by Deakin in Australia, and are both accredited Australian Computer Society, a globally recognised professional body in these fields. Students will receive the same standard of higher education in GIFT City as at Deakin in Australia. Academic standards will be based on Deakin’s standards frameworks and manuals and are aligned with the national accreditation body in Australia: Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA). Saying that Deakin’s international branch campus is an incredible opportunity to deepen engagement with India, Vice-Chancellor of Deakin University Professor Iain Martin said: “As India’s population is predominantly young, with over 50 per cent below the age of 25, investing in world-class education is crucial not only for the country’s economic growth and development but also for equipping young individuals with the necessary skills and knowledge to flourish in an ever-evolving global landscape.”
