Program Description:

Program OverviewCIEE Hyderabad

Hyderabad is the fifth largest city in India and is at the heart of India's rapidly developing global economy. The newly coined "Cyberabad" area, the IT-outsourcing hub that contains the famous "Hi-tech City", has brought much attention to Hyderabad in recent years. Good public transportation makes Hyderabad an excellent base from which to visit other areas of the country. The language of the state is Telugu, but in Hyderabad, Urdu is widely spoken, and people are comfortable with Hindi. English is also spoken by large numbers of college-educated people.
