Founded in 2021 and located in Mumbai, ATLAS SkillTech University signifies a new approach to higher education in India, employing a futurist model of teaching and utilising technology-enabled learning to focus on multidisciplinary skills-led education.

The University of Bristol was founded over 100 years ago and has a rich history of pushing frontiers through both its research and approach to teaching. It was the first university in the UK to admit women on an equal basis with men, and today combines world-class teaching and research with a culture of nurturing successful start-ups and university spin-out companies.

The partnership will draw on the pioneering spirit of the two institutions, bringing together the best minds and futuristic technologies to deliver a new approach to education. The universities will collaborate on areas of increasing corporate and social significance including Design & Innovation, Management & Entrepreneurship, Media & Communication, Film & Animation and Digital Technology.

The partnership will create articulation and progression pathways for ATLAS students to access further study at Bristol as well as opportunities for students in Mumbai and Bristol to visit the other institution for semester, year-long, summer and virtual experiences. The institutions will also explore opportunities for research collaboration and joint PhD programmes in areas such as AI and Entrepreneurship, Computer Aided Design, Data Science, Digital Agriculture and Society, Film and Television and IoT for Security.

“It’s exciting to join ATLAS at the beginning of what promises to be a transformative journey for higher education, both in India and potentially around the world. Here at the University of Bristol we have a long history of pioneering research and innovative teaching methods. Combining our knowledge and experience with ATLAS’S vision and ambition promises to deliver a truly innovative partnership, grounded in areas of real-world significance,” said Professor Agnes Nairn, Pro-Vice Chancellor for Global Engagement at the University of Bristol.

President of ATLAS SkillTech University, Dr Indu Shahani, said: “ATLAS SkillTech University represents the exciting and seismic change happening in India’s higher education sector as a result of the recent National Education Policy (NEP). To partner with the University of Bristol, one of the UK’s most prestigious universities, not only demonstrates the confidence the global education sector has in our vision, it also brings enormous benefits in terms of knowledge, experience and opportunity.”
