NITTE (Deemed to be University) has developed international collaborations withover 20 Universities and Institutes across the globe. These collaborations have led to development of joint research projects funded though International Cooperation Division of Department of Science and Technology (eg. Indo-Norway, Indo-Belgium) or though funding agencies in partner countries (eg. Swedish International Development Agency, National Environmental Research Council of UK). The collaborations have lead to joint publications, joint international workshops, exchange of faculty and students at doctoral or postdoctoral level. Some of the international collaborations are specifically focused on faculty and student exchange eg. University of Minnesota, USA for exchange of students in public health; Universite Paul Sabatier, Toulouse, France for exchange of medical and dental students; Wake Forest University, USA for exchange of students in the area of Medical Microbiology; Miyazaki University, Japan for exchange of faculty and students in medical, dental, pharmacy, nursing and biomedical areas through Sakura programme; University of Santo Tomas, Manila, Philippines for exchange of students in Physiotherapy; Ulster University, UK for exchange of nursing students and faculty.
