AUSN is proud to sign an Academic Cooperation Agreement with Loyola College and Loyola-ICAM College of Engineering and Technology (LICET).
Loyola College is an autonomous Jesuit institution of academic excellence under the historic University of Madras in the city of Chennai, India. The institution is among the handful of India’s most prestigious institutions for degree programmes in commerce, arts, natural sciences and social sciences. It has been consistently ranked amongst the top five institutions in India for those programs. LICET would function as a space where the marginalised will have a place and at the same time LICET will strive to provide quality education.
Loyola College and Loyola-ICAM College of Engineering & Technology (LICET), Chennai, IndiaLoyola College (founded in 1925 in Chennai, India) and ICAM (Institut Catholique d’Arts et Métiers, founded in 1898 in Lille, France), both guided by the Jesuit methodology of education, have inked a joint venture of founding an engineering college which would be a unique model not only in forming engineers with social responsibility but also serving as a melting pot of Indian and French cultures preparing Indian students to serve in European industries and European students to work in Indian industries. Based on principles of integral pedagogy evolved out by Jesuits and the style of education, the whole study program leads not only to the acquisition of professional qualifications but also allows student’s to have comprehensive personal development: ability to work in a team, develop communication skills, appreciate cultures to be sensitive to ethics and social involvement. AUSN and LICET signed the MOU during the joint hosting of the 14th Asian Bioethics Conference in November 2013.
