ODU and Pakistani University Sign Teaching and Research Agreement

Old Dominion University and Pakistan's University of Engineering and Technology, Peshawar, have entered into an academic agreement for mutual cooperation for teaching and research at the doctoral level.

Under the agreement, which was signed Aug. 27, reciprocal teaching and joint research will take place at the two universities, and ODU will help UET develop Ph.D. courses.

In addition to the teaching and research, "this linkage would be a source of cultural exchange," said Muhammad Munir, president of the Pakistani Americans Cultural and Educational Society (PACES), which negotiated the academic and research program.

"These agreements are not only useful for dissemination of knowledge and research, but also foster good relationship between the two countries," said Munir, a former education counselor at the Pakistani embassy in Washington, D.C.

PACES has previously negotiated UET academic linkages with the University of Maryland, George Washington University, George Mason University and the University of California at Berkeley.
