Cambridge students embark on passage to India
The emerging industrial power of India is to become the focus for students at the University of Cambridge Institute for Manufacturing (IfM).
A group of around 40 Manufacturing Engineering students are jetting off to the sub-continent as part of their summer study tour.
The trip will form part of a major research project called "Hot Stuff - India's recipe for Industrial Success".
The visit will see the students' visit more than 20 of India's leading firms in the space of just 12 days. The business sectors include hi-tech pharmaceuticals and computing to automotive and construction.
It is hoped the research team - who head off at the end of the month - will provide greater understanding of the investment opportunities for UK companies in India as well as identify future trends.
The work will form part of a growing partnership in industrial innovation involving UK and Indian businesses and universities.
