KAIST to Export Education Program to UAE
An education program is to be exported by the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) to the UAE.
A partnership agreement with the Khalifa University of Science, Technology and Research (KUSTAR) in UAE capital Abu Dhabi, was signed Thursday by the Korean university. About KUSTAR, it is an elite school with intensive support from the UAE government.
KAIST President Suh Nam-pyo, after signing the agreement, promised to cooperate to make KUSTAR "a world-class university of science and technology like KAIST."
KAIST, along with helping in development of teaching materials and curricula, will also share research and education know-how, and cooperate in designing bachelor's, master's and doctoral programs at KUSTAR.
KAIST would mainly require providing KUSTAR with a package of university administration, research and education know-how, under the agreement.
“The agreement was part of a treaty of cooperation concluded by the two governments in December, when a Korean consortium signed a contract to build a nuclear power plant in the UAE. Expenses for the project by the two schools will be borne by the two governments,” said a source.
