The Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University's delegation welcomed by the International Department and the Director of Studies

On March 14th, ECAM Lyon welcomed representatives from our South African partner university, NMMU (Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University). Dr. Nico Jooste, Senior Director of the Office for International Education, and Dr. Oswald Franks, recently appointed Executive Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, were given a tour of our campus. The ongoing collaboration between our two institutions was also discussed. 2 ECAM students will be attending a semester at NMMU in 2014. This visit comes after Dr. Jooste’s participation at a conference on the theme of “South Africa – advantages and opportunities for our institutions”, organized in Lyon by AGERA (Alliance des Grandes Ecoles Rhône-Alpes), and held on March 13th.
