UNIVERSITI Brunei Darussalam (UBD) and Institut Teknologi Brunei (ITB) have signed a new agreement with ASEAN and Japanese universities to further cooperation in engineering education.
Representatives from the government, UBD and ITB were in Bangkok last month to sign the Cooperative Framework of the ASEAN University Network/Southeast Asia Engineering Education Development Network (AUN/SEED-Net).
"The signing marked the new page of higher education collaboration in the ASEAN region where leading universities work together for socio-economic development with cooperation from the industry, which would contribute to the establishment of the ASEAN Community,' said ITB in a statement.
The new framework will be operational from March 2013 onwards, and will include seven new institutions from ASEAN and three new supporting universities from Japan.
The AUN/SEED-Net aims to advance the engineering industry through collaborations with ASEAN universities. It comprises 19 leading engineering institutions in ASEAN and 11 supporting universities in Japan.The network also aims to address common issues through academic research and conferences.
The AUN/SEED-Net was established in 2001, emerging from an initiative derived at the ASEAN-Japan Summit. It was originally intended as a framework toward sustainable development after the economic crisis that struck Asia in the late 1990s. Quratul-Ain Bandial
