NUST and Bremen explore areas of collaboration

A delegation of six academics from the University of Bremen in Germany, paid a familiarisation visit to NUST with the intention to discuss possible areas of collaboration between the two institutions.

The University of Bremen is the science centre of Northern Germany, renowned for its strengths in the sciences and engineering disciplines, as well as the humanities and social sciences.

During the discussion, top management from both universities showed interest in partnering in areas which include staff and student exchange, SME programme development, improving the use of technology in teaching and learning, and joint research in software development.

Furthermore, with the recent sharp increase in the number of refugees migrating to Europe, the German delegation expressed interest in conducting joint community outreach programmes in the affected areas.

The University of Bremen’s Vice-President: International, Dr Yasemin Karakasoglu, said: “Our University has approximately 9 000 students and wherever you look, the student body, research work or life on our campus, there is truly an abundance of international and intercultural diversity. A large number of young and renowned scholars and scientists come to Bremen to teach and carry out research. Therefore, working together is always a great opportunity to enrich each other’s academic success.”

The NUST Vice-Chancellor, Dr Tjama Tjivikua, highlighted that the University was recently given recognition as the Most Innovative Company, and Best Higher Education Institution in Namibia by an independent consultancy and research company, PMR.Africa.

This, Tjivikua said, bears testimony that NUST is a sound partner and a leader in innovation.

Formalising this collaboration, through the signing a Memorandum of Understanding was also on the agenda during the discussions.
