Leaders of the USC India delegation kept pens handy for signing ceremonies that formalized academic partnerships between the university and top Indian academic institutions. On the second day of the trip, President Nikias signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Bombay.
When the delegation moved to New Delhi a few days later, USC Viterbi School of Engineering dean Yannis C. Yortsos signed an MOU connecting USC Viterbi and IIT Delhi. He signed another MOU with IIT Hyderabad on the final day of the visit.
Almost seven years earlier, then-dean Nikias signed an MOU with IIT Kharagpur, the oldest IIT campus. Read more about the 2004 MOU here.
