HCT partners with German university for new Logistics programme

ABU DHABI , September 18, 2017

The Higher Colleges of Technology (HCT) in Abu Dhabi, UAE, will leverage leading German logistics expertise in a new dual German-UAE Engineering Logistics degree, after it signed an agreement of cooperation with the Technical University of Applied Sciences (TUAS Wildau), based near Berlin, Germany.

The agreement was signed at the HCT-Abu Dhabi Men’s campus by Dr Abdullatif Al Shamsi, HCT Vice Chancellor, and Professor Dr Laszlo Ungvari, President of TUAS Wildau, in the presence of Goetz Lingenthal, the German Ambassador in the UAE; Engineer Abdul Rahman Al Jahoushi, Abu Dhabi Men’s campus director; as well as HCT Engineering Logistics faculty members.

The comprehensive programme will provide eligible students with the opportunity to earn a dual German-UAE Bachelor Degree, covering many facets and fields of logistics management. Under the agreement, faculty from TUAS Wildau will also be recruited to teach students and exchange their experiences with HCT Engineering Logistics faculty.

Dr Al Shamsi said the agreement reflected the HCT’s emphasis on preparing students for the best in-demand specialisations in the UAE, and equipping them with world class skills and experiences, by establishing partnerships and collaborations that increase students’ opportunities to earn the best academic qualifications and acquire advanced professional skills.

“This agreement is in line with the new HCT 2.0 vision that focuses on combining academic study and professional training, as it provides an opportunity for Engineering Logistics students, who fulfil the admission requirements of TUAS Wildau, to earn a dual German-UAE Bachelor Degree,” Dr Al Shamsi said.

Dr Al Shamsi also praised TUAS Wildau for its cooperation with, and commitment to, the Engineering Logistics degree, emphasising that the partnership will be rewarding for both HCT students and faculty.

Dr Ungvari expressed his pleasure with signing the agreement, which is a continuation of the previous successful years of cooperation between the two institutions in the field of logistics. He also emphasised the willingness of TUAS Wildau to exchange its experiences, knowledge and expertise with HCT in the area of Engineering Logistics in order to achieve the programme’s desired objectives.

Students interested in earning an Engineering Logistics Bachelor Degree from TUAS Wildau, in addition to their HCT Bachelor Degree, must fulfil the admission requirements and conditions of TUAS Wildau, including German language proficiency.

To earn the dual degree students will also be required to complete the final year of study (two semesters) at TUAS Wildau in Germany, where the first semester will focus on theoretical study and specialized lectures, and the second semester will focus on applied studies and specialized German professional experience.

Students who don’t fulfill these requirements will receive the HCT Bachelor Degree in Engineering Logistics. – TradeArabia News Service
