Developing TNE partnership with Kazakh National Research Technical University (Satbayev)
Dr Tariq Umar, Senior Lecturer in Construction Project Management, is leading the British Council Kazakhstan funded project to develop Transnational Education (TNE) Partnership with Kazakh National Research Technical University (Satbayev University - SU). The project aims to investigate the partners requirements and interests for collaboration in transnational education both from the UWE Bristol and SU side.
The project team will review the possibilities for joint academic, research and mobility programmes in the areas of engineering (civil, construction, architecture, BIM), green technologies, and computer science.
The project is also expected to develop an action plan in the form of a document describing a strategy towards creating specific transnational education structure focusing on engineering (civil, construction, architecture, BIM), computer science and green technologies. The feasibility of establishing a franchise or delivery of UK programmes via a partner institution will be reviewed in the project.
It is expected that project will open doors to exploring further partnership opportunities in Kazakhstan and other central Asian countries.
