About the program
UTS launched the 'Key Technology Partnerships' (KTP) strategy in 2010, 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's vision to become a world-leading university of technology.
These partnerships 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 18 University-level KTPs with leading universities in Greater China, India, Europe, Latin America and North America and two Faculty-level KTP's.
