MMU – Howest University College partnership takes shape
After signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Mountains of the Moon University (MMU) and Howest University College of Belgium in February 2023, an academic visit lasting 3 weeks by three MMU staff from Faculty of Science, Technology and Innovation to Howest University College including Dr. Edwin Akugizibwe, Bukenya Moses (Head of Department – Computer Science), and Mr. Peter Baranga has come to an end.
Dean Faculty of Science, Technology and Innovations Dr. Edwin Akuguzibwe indicates that the three week academic visit has exposed them to a number of very important lessons which they wish to implement in their faculty as a means of channeling out up to date graduates.
Among the Howest University campuses visited included: Howest- Kotrijk Campus and Howest-Brugge Campus. Other University partners visited HoGent- University College and Lueven University (KU Lueven). All these institutions were visited with a focus as possible potential partners.
MMU- Howest University signed a Memorandum of Understanding to have professional cooperation between the two institutions in the field of vocational training, education, applied research, technology, mobility and expertise sharing lasting 3 years with opportunity of renewal.
