(13 February 2018)
Five-Year Agreement signed during World Government Summit in Dubai


 The Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT), the UAE's largest applied higher education institution, will work closely with leading Mexican university system, the Universidad Techmilenio, to create a raft of initiatives including student and faculty exchanges, common curricular and innovation centers, after a Memorandum of Understanding was signed by the parties today, on the sidelines of the World Government Summit in Dubai.

The agreement was signed by Dr. Abdullatif Al Shamsi, Vice Chancellor of the Higher Colleges of Technology, and Dr. Hector Mauricio Escamilla, President of Universidad Techmilenio, and will see the parties collaborate on the jointly-beneficial initiatives over a period of five years.

The Universidad Techmilenio is a multi-campus educational system with 28 campuses in 24 cities across Mexico, as well as operating an e-university system. It offers students the opportunity to gain professional skills in science, engineering and technology, as well as having a strong focus on continuing education and distance learning systems.

In addition to facilitating an extensive student and faculty exchange program, under the terms of the agreement the parties will work to design curricular relevant to the common majors offered by both institutions, as well as sharing educational best practices and relevant hybrid educational models. Furthermore, the parties will focus on the design, establishment and operation of innovation centers in their respective campuses, whilst sharing best practices and concepts.

Dr. Abdullatif Al Shamsi, Vice Chancellor of the Higher Colleges of Technology, said it was very pleasing to sign the agreement with such a leading Mexican higher education institution. "This agreement gives us the opportunity to have joint interests and to work with one of the distinguished universities in Mexico, which is highly reputable in the areas of teaching science and technology," he said.

"The agreement is further aligned with HCT's focus on applied technical education and our new hybrid education strategy which combines academic and professional training to give HCT graduates two qualifications," he added.

The Vice Chancellor added a highlight of the agreement was the strong focus on innovation spaces to boost ideation of concepts and boost innovative solutions to current and future issues for all sectors of the UAE. "It is good to establish partnerships with international higher education institutions in order to help facilitate a knowledge economy in line with the directives of the UAE's leadership," Dr Al Shamsi added.
