After several visits and meetings between the USC School of Engineering and the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (NTUST) in Taiwan to discuss potential academic collaboration, a new agreement of cooperation has been signed last January 6, 2017 at the SOE Conference Room, Talamban Campus by the Presidents of the two universities.
The new Memorandum of Agreement officially sealed the latest partnership between the two universities to promote and develop cooperation in research and education through the dual master’s and doctoral degree programs. The arrangement will give an opportunity for USC MS and PhD students in Engineering to earn dual degrees from both USC and NTUST. Graduate students will have the chance to attend classes in NTUST and Professors from NTUST may come to USC to teach as visiting faculty.
The MOA signing was also attended by the Chairs of the various departments from the School of Engineering.
