The University Coventry in the United Kingdom, is looking to partner with Rwandan companies in developing the skills base in key areas such as health, entrepreneurship, education and research, manufacturing, Aerospace, food and water security, a reliable source confimed Thursday.
This confirmation was announced after Rwandan President Paul Kagame received earlier Wednesday John Latham, the Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive of Coventry University Group, to discuss joint projects in the health and education sector.
The move was part of the university’s plan to develop a sustainable network of multi-faceted overseas offices modeled on hubs such as Singapore and Dubai.
Latham and the regional Managing Director of the university, Silas Lwakabamba, also met with officials from the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Health, and Rwanda Development Board (RDB), it said.
“We are working with the government and the development board to look at the opportunities to develop the skills base in Rwanda and meet the needs of the industry,” Latham said.
Coventry University Group partners with 150 academic institutions worldwide, with active partnerships in all continents pursuing joint research and teaching programmes, student and staff mobility, collaborative degrees and progression pathway programmes.
