Message from the Chair

Welcome to webpages of office of international relations (OIR) at Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore.

IISc is globally acclaimed to produce world-class research (ranked number 1 research university in India) and most employable students (ranked in top 30 worldwide). The international relations play a major role in terms of improving the global outreach of our faculty and students. Thus, this office was created in the year 1998 and has been serving current faculty and students to facilitate the global cooperation in research and education. As we are moving to an era of interdisciplinary research, our goal will be to enable global engagement in the new frontiers of research areas.

The charter of the office of international relations is not only to facilitate the collaboration between current faculty and students with other international universities, we also facilitate the international student admissions at IISc. The internationalisation of IISc will also be expanded by engaging with international organisations (including industries) and new initiatives including admission of international students to all academic/research programs of IISc that are currently being offered only to Indian students.

Any suggestions/ideas to expand our international activities are welcome and will look forward to your support in this endeavour.

Prof. Phaneendra K. Yalavarthy, Ph.D.
