NIT Warangal was among 12 prestigious institutions of India to sign an MoU with member countries of BRICS as the institute has been known for its competence in computer and information sciences. The computer science and engineering has signed MoUs with various institutions in the past, Prof Srinivasa Rao added.

The BRICS MoU helps faculty exchange programmes on which the institute has laid focus now.
