As part of its concerted efforts to strengthen wide-ranging S&T-based collaborations with Chinese universities, NUST continuously strives to forge partnerships for mutual benefit. With a view to furthering its multifaceted partnership with Tsinghua University (TU), NUST received a 4-member delegation of TU on March 22, 2019. The delegation was led by Professor Dr Zhang Wei, Associate Dean Graduate School & Director of Engineering Management Education Centre of TU.
Upon arrival, a comprehensive presentation on NUST was delivered to the delegates, followed by a discussion on the way forward for collaboration between NUST & TU. It was mutually agreed that both varsities will exchange students under their summer school programmes. The discussion also focused on other areas of collaboration, joint research; information sharing; and faculty exchange for short courses. Following the discussion, the delegation visited NUST School of Mechanical & Manufacturing Engineering (SMME) where they had an interactive session with the currently enrolled engineering student of NUST H-12 campus. The delegates encouraged the students to consider applying to TU for their postgraduate studies specifically in Masters in Engineering Management programme.
Afterwards the delegation was led to a guided tour of NUST School of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (SEECS) & its various research labs & facilities. It merits mention that NUST & TU have been in collaboration in multiple domains for a noticeable period of time.
