One of the prominent features of any university's international standing is its strong linkages with foreign universities of repute. This ensures that research and teaching are of the highest quality by encouraging a two-way flow of knowledge. This aspect adds global perspective to its activities, helps avoid stagnation and remain current on latest developments in the field of science and technology.
