Banasthali Chemical Engineering student Deepali Kataria Sojourn at University of Education Weingarten

It is indeed a matter of great pride that Banasthali has fostered healthy collaboration with several universities abroad to facilitate exchange programs. The student who goes from Banasthali not only goes as an ambassador of her Alma mater but also of motherland India carrying the pride, values and ethos.

For the purpose of fostering Student Exchange, Curriculum Design & Development Support, Faculty Exchange, Programme Exchange, Dual Degree Programme etc, Banasthali has been collaborating and signing Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with various institutions across the globe which include Waterford Institute of Technology, Ireland; Fachhochschule KufsteinTirol, Austria; Fachhochschule Vorarlberg, Austria; Gazi University, Turkey; Savonia Polytechnic, Finland; Sciences Po Toulouse, France; Academy of Professional Studies, London; The Global Village University, Ghana; Murdoch University, Australia; Kantonsschule Solothuria, Switzerland; Lord Buddha Education Foundation, Nepal; Teachers Training College, Weingarten, Germany; Teachers Training College, Schwaebisch Gmuend, Germany; Ubon Rajathanee University, Thailand; Lincoln College, Malaysia; Concordia University, Canada; University of Applied Sciences, Ravensburg, Weingarten, Germany; Mendel University, Czech Republic; University of Murcia, Spain; University of Warsaw, Poland; University of Saskatchewan, Canada; Curtin University, Australia; Epita University, France; American University of Central Asia, Kyrgyzstan; Universitas Sumatera Utara, Indonesia; International University of Kyrgyzstan, Kyrgyzstan and University of Northern Michigan, USA.

In addition, Banasthali has been a partner under the Erasmus Mundus Action-2 Inter-disciplinary Bridges between Indo-European Studies (IBIES) Programme, which has 6 European Universities and 12 Indian Universities as its members. Prof Hamsavahini Singh who is famous for her bicycle tour of the world teaches German which is one of the most sought after foreign language course at Banasthali campus by students and coordinates all the student exchange activities with various institutions in Germany. She is also Professor incharge for “Das Epochfest “ which is one of the most popular festivals in Banasthali campus.

Ms Deepali Kataria who is from Jaspur Uttarakhand took admission to Banastahli in July 2015 for pursuing BTech Chemical Engineering. Her cousin also had been a Banasthalite who did several German Certificate courses offered in the campus and went to Germany for a sojourn. Inspired by her cousin, in addition to her chemical engineering courses, Deepali registered for the German language courses ranging from Certificate to Diploma to Advanced Diploma in different semesters.

Her outstanding performance in various German courses by Mar 2018 fetched her not only a Gold Medal but also the coveted Baden-Württemberg Scholarship to pursue a semester from 01 October 2018 to 15 January 2019 at over seven decades old University of Education Weingarten Germany.

The matrix structure introduced in 2005 at Weingarten University of Education underlines the interdisciplinary orientation in teaching and research. Starting in 2006, the College of Vocational School Weingarten began to expand its offer of scientific study programs for further education professions in addition to the teacher training courses. PH Weingarten offers a broad spectrum of study opportunities with 10 Bachelor's programs and 10 Master's programs outside the teaching profession.

During her stay, Deepali took 11 courses in the host University and a training at Talschule in which she attended the classes of Grade 3 kids and gave the presentation about India and various festivals. Interacting with the kids in German really improved her language skills many fold. The city tours, welcome evenings, weekend trips to the cities in Baden-Württemberg Area like Friedrichshafen, Lindau, Überlingen and Konstanz, one day trip to St.Gallen, Switzerland and 3 countries tour to Werdenberg Castle in Switzerland, Vaduz in Liechtenstein and Feldkirch in Austria made Deepali’s sojourn truly unforgettable. The chilling weather, Christmas markets with the warm fragrance of Glühwein, fleamarkets, baking cookies and snowfall were cherry on the top.

To quote Deepali about the sojourn “My stay in Germany feels like a dream. It is hard to recollect the experience as a whole. I feel as my experience was so surreal, breathtaking and life changing that I can’t exactly sit down and absorb it all at once. The hospitality of the host University and support of International office exceeded the expectations. They went out of their way to ensure that all the International students experienced the German way of life, including culture, language and cuisine. By the end, I realized that this exchange program had helped me grow as a person, to become more independent.”

Deepali who is graduating in May 2019 is proud that she was indeed part of an institution which is a jewel in the crown among the women’s universities not only in India today but across the globe.
