A partnership has been announced between Khalifa University of Science, Technology and Research (KUSTAR) and the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), to develop cutting edge Engineering-based education and research initiatives in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the United States of America (USA). A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed at a ceremony held in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The aim of this collaboration is to establish a framework for exploring sponsored research, joint research opportunities and joint educational programmes. The two parties will explore areas in which Georgia Tech may provide assistance with short-and long-term faculty and administrative needs, and encourage exchange experiences for students and faculty.
The MoU is stipulated by a time frame of five years and is to cover the bilateral exchange of information and experience in education and research and to explore opportunities for submitting proposals for joint projects. This includes integrating content for course material, joint collaborative research projects between faculty and/or research groups, and world class lectures or seminars provided by either party.
