A decision has been made for an exchange programme between Karachi University and Ulster University in the United Kingdom which would provide an opportunity to the final year students and also to the faculty members as they would then be able to get training and education correspondingly.
On Thursday, 2 members of the delegation from Ulster University came to Karachi University to meet the VC of KU, Professor Dr Khalid Mahmood Iraqi.
The members included the Associate Dean (Global Engagement) Professor Paul Hanna, and Humair Ahmed, Country manager of the same institute. The discussion went on regarding the teaching and research activities in different departments of KU but mainly focusing on the Computer Science Department.
The Dean offered the exchange programme to the MS and MPhil students of computer science dept according to which these students will get a chance to complete 1 semester at the Ulster University, London.
He also discussed the faculty training about modern technology and the way it is used. The Dean encourages the students of KU to avail the scholarship program of 3 years PhD at the UK University which also proposes good earnings to the scholars after giving up a large amount of tuition fee.
The offer got accepted by the Vice Chancellor of Karachi University saying that it would be an amazing experience for the students. He too encouraged the students to avail the offer as it is a nice opportunity for them.
He mentioned that such academic exchange programmes would become very productive in the future.
