The programme envisages equipping senior faculty members to take up leadership roles in existing and new institutions, consolidating best practices at national level, benchmark them with international practices, and eventually provide a structured approach for institutional transformation.

The senior faculties will be prepared for taking up leadership roles in IITs, NITs, IIITs and other institutions of national importance. During the training programme, they will be carrying out a project on chosen themes of institutional administration under the mentorship of experts from India and Singapore, Ganesan Kannabiran, Director, IIIT, Sri City, Chittoor, Andhra Pradesh, which is the organising partner, said in a press release.
