COB Signs MOU With Chinese University

In an effort to pave the way for international education and exchange opportunities, particularly in Information Technology and cross-cultural engagement, The College of The Bahamas (COB) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Taiyuan University of Technology (TUT) on Tuesday.

The formal relationship with TUT is aligned with The College’s internationalization strategy.

The agreement permits collaboration in research projects based on common interests in economic development and education.

In addition, the agreement also opens the door for cooperation on special projects to promote economic and cultural linkages between the People’s Republic of China and The Bahamas.

The MOU also provides for faculty, staff and student exchanges.

Officials at COB emphasized that as The College prepares to transition to the University of The Bahamas, it is crucial to forge international relationships with peer and aspirant higher education institutions.

Chairman of the College Council Alfred Sears and Chairman of (TUT) Wu Junqing took part in the MOU signing.
Taiyuan University has over 20,000 full-time undergraduates and over 6,000 post-graduates who are pursuing degrees in a variety of disciplines.

COB recently signed an MOU with Central State University (CSU).

CSU is Ohio’s only predominately African American public institution of higher education, the agreement signed in September will also permit capacity development opportunities for faculty and staff joint research projects and cross cultural activities.
