Key Technology Partnership Program


About the program

In 2010, UTS launched the 'Key Technology Partnerships' (KTP) strategy, with the goal of establishing a select number of flagship institution-to-institution partnerships.
 

 

Building enduring, broad-based international engagement and strategic, high-quality research links with overseas partner institutions is a key component of UTS's Internationalisation Strategy and of vital importance to UTS as we seek to achieve our vision of becoming a world-leading university of technology.

Wherever possible, these partnerships will include dual or joint PhD and postgraduate degree programs, cross-institutional teaching, credit transfer between institutions and joint research collaboration, including Joint Research Centres

UTS currently has 16 KTP with leading universities in Greater China, India, Europe, Latin America and North America.
