President of Princess Sumaya University for Technology (PSUT), Prof. Mashhoor Al-Refai and Australian Ambassador to Jordan Miles Armitage, on Tuesday, discussed ways to enhance cooperation in various academic and research fields.
The two sides discussed exchanging students' scholarships between the PSUT and Australian universities, creating research partnerships, and enhancing exchange opportunities between the two sides for students and faculty members.
Al-Refai stressed the university's keenness to open up to international universities, including Australian ones, to enrich the university's scientific course and the Jordanian higher education course in general.
He pointed to agreements that the PSUT had signed with a number of international universities, especially European and American ones, in addition to its participation in 40 European academic projects, and its leadership of five of these projects.
During the meeting, Al-Refai highlighted the university's progress, achievements, and specific and unique academic programs at the regional level, pointing to the university's position locally, regionally and internationally.
In turn, Ambassador Armitage lauded the PSUT and its advanced academic and scientific career, stressing the importance of creating effective partnerships between the PSUT and its Australian counterparts.
In April, the University of Sydney will organize a scientific forum, in cooperation with the Australian Embassy and a number of Jordanian universities, to promote the university.
