A Memorandum of Understanding was signed by the University and Colombo International Nautical and Engineering College (CINEC) at its campus in Malabe.
The agreement means that CINEC students who have completed two years of an approved engineering programme in Sri Lanka have the chance to continue their studies at the University of Wolverhampton and complete BEng Degrees in either Mechatronics or Electronics and Communications Engineering.
Phil Harris, Director of Recruitment and Lifelong Learning at the University’s School of Engineering and the Built Environment, said: “This Memorandum is only the first stage of a planned long term relationship that will include development of joint research projects, teacher and student exchange programmes and the development of two BEng Degrees for delivery in full in Sri Lanka in the Spring of 2009.
“These degrees will be in Mechatronics and Electronics and Communications Engineering and will be delivered using both CINEC and University of Wolverhampton academics.
“The University of Wolverhampton is very excited by these developments and looks forward to working in collaboration with staff and students of Colombo International Nautical and Engineering College.”
