The present day world is replete with academic clutter, both in terms of academic institutions and the variety of options in the minds of all career oriented students (and you won’t find too many these days who are not).
AIT provides a respite with its refreshingly different approach and courses. it provides every student a realistic roadmap for a successful professional career comprising of a Bachelor’s degree, a Master’s degree and an appropriate paid internship.
AIT has produced many success stories till date. However, not one to rest on its laurels, it is continuously striving to achieve better results and placements for its students. to cite one of the many examples, Kumar Jeev, who initially aspired to be an IITian, left MBM Engineering College, Jodhpur and joined AIT in 2000 and today he is doing PhD at Johns Hopkins (ivy league university) with a scholarship of $56,000 per annum. Now Kumar is thrilled to bits with the way thing turned out for him at AIT.
‘Sour grapes’, you might say. Well, you would have to face strong contention from Abhishek Agarwal, who, after transferring from AIT to Coastal Carlina University, USA, has been awarded with the Best Student Award by the President of having a perfect score. Now, he is pursuing Masters degree in BioSciences with scholarship at the world famous Keck Graduate Institute in California.
Those who look for a covered degree and an appropriate international exposure, AIT has the solution. its unique International Twinning Programs enable students to get degrees from reputed universities of the US, Canada, Australia and the UK, The US universities like North Dakota State University, Tarleton State University and the Coastal Carolina University offer huge amounts in Scholarships to the AIT students to complete the final year of their degree in the US under the agreements. The arrangement for a 4-year UG degree is such that 3 years of coursework is done at AIT while for a 2-year PG degree the first year is done at AIT and final year is done in the US for the degree awarded by US universities.
