Applications Open for the APRU Virtual Student Exchange Program Season 2, 2021-22
Although the Covid-19 pandemic situation around the globe may have shown signs of improvement, border closures and travel restrictions are still being implemented in a large number of countries. To provide exchange students with an alternative option, Chulalongkorn University has cooperated with the member universities of the Association of Pacific Rim Universities (APRU) network to offer the “APRU Virtual Student Exchange Program” to undergraduate students of the APRU members from all around the world. The program aims to provide them with the opportunity to learn and engage with peers, academics and experts from other countries through a digital platform. Students can take academic courses and earn credits from other universities without an additional tuition fee, except for the regular fee(s) paid to their home university. The APRU, a network of 60 leading universities in the Americas, Asia and Australasia, brings to its students an exclusive opportunity to connect with peers from the member universities so as to learn new knowledge and skills, exchange ideas and cultures, and develop connections vital for success in the 21st Century. The APRU Virtual Student Exchange (VSE) Program, led by The Chinese University of Hong Kong, makes international education accessible by allowing students to take academic courses and participate in co-curricular programs without the need to leave home. It opens up international education for all students by providing an immersive virtual student exchange experience through digital technologies and platforms and creating encounters with new ideas, cultures, experts, academics and students from around the world. Interested students can visit our website https://www.inter.chula.ac.th/global-academic-affairs/student-mobility-program/#tab-apruvirtualstudentexchange to observe any internal instructions and https://vse.apru.org/s22122/ to check the course offering. More courses will be added, so be sure to check out the website regularly! For the application process, students are advised to consult with your program/faculty coordinator. Then, complete your application on the APRU VSE website, forward your confirmation email to the coordinator at your Faculty and please notify your program coordinator to fill a nomination form to the Office of International Affairs and Global Network. In addition, be aware and note the deadlines, so don’t wait until the last minute to submit your application! The deadline for Chula students to apply to VSE season 2, 2021-22 is December 10, 2021.
e-Yantra Robotics Competition (eYRC) 2021-22
The e-Yantra Robotics Competition (eYRC) is a flagship initiative of the e-Yantra project, organized annually for Engineering & Technical students. It's actually a robotic MOOC that teaches skills in Embedded Systems, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Control Systems, Functional Programming, Image Processing and other contemporary areas. Participating teams are allotted "themes" that are abstractions of real-world problems. Themes are allotted in a selection process taking into account participants' skills and parent discipline. Over the past 9 years, e-Yantra Robotics Competition has seen exponential growth in the number of registrations from around 4500 registrations in 2012 to 34,500 - only in India. The competition runs over 6-7 months during which participating teams work under the expert guidance of e-Yantra mentors. Prizes are cash and a coveted 6-week summer internship at IIT Bombay. The registration link: https://portal.e-yantra.org Launch video: https://youtu.be/EKssa8RMLts Registrations are open till: 20th of September 2021, 11:59 PM This year e-Yantra has opened registrations for students internationally. We solicit your help in reaching out to your students. We believe this is a compelling way to connect students across the world in the spirit of competition. Participation requires one to be a full-time student of an undergraduate program in a polytechnic, engineering college or university. The competition requires only a basic knowledge of programming - e-Yantra trains students (online) from scratch in the competition. Prizes and benefits for students include e-Yantra (IIT Bombay) Certificates, 6-Weeks Paid Internships at IIT Bombay, Cash Prizes, e-Yantra Goodies, etc. If interested contact: Suprabha Jadhav (Intl.
