Angola: UAN Signs Protocol With Norway, Tanzanian Counterparts

Luanda — Angola's State-run Agostinho Neto University (UAN), and the National Technical University of Norway and Dar es Salaam in Tanzania Friday in Arusha, Tanzania, signed a tripartite cooperation protocol.

The agreement allows the Angolan students to attend Master's courses in those countries in the specialities of Oil and geosciences engineering.

The information is contained in a UAN's note delivered Sunday to Angop.

The source confirmed that the protocol was signed under the High Education Initiative Angola, Norway and Tanzania, launched in 2012, which involves the three institutions of higher education.

This is the second agreement signed by the chancellor of UAN, Orlando da Mata, in less than a week.

On Monday he signed an accord with the Ryukoku University, Japan, in education and research field, reads the note.

Orlando da Mata is making a tour abroad since 18 January, at the head of a delegation comprising the academic vice-rector for Scientific Affairs, José Pedro Domingos.

Deans of the Faculties of Science and Engineering, João Gaspar da Silva and Alice Ceita e Almeida, respectively, are also integrating the delegation.
