These institutes are being built in collaboration with technologically advanced universities of France, Italy, Germany, China, South Korea and Austria. Later, the scope of this faculty was extended to the existing Engineering Universities in the country.

The project continues to award MS leading to PhD & PhD scholarships at top-ranked universities of USA, UK, Canada, Austria, China, France, Germany, Belgium, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Turkey, Australia, Italy etc (As per updated list).
