Pokhara University of Nepal signs an agreement with UPCT,member of EUt+, to exchange engineering students

Some 30 professors from four Nepalese universities and one from Bhutan are currently being trained at the Polytechnic University of Cartagena in new methodologies for teaching sustainable development, as part of the European B+NESDG project led by the UPCT, within the scope of the EUt+.
Pedagogical tools such as storytelling and content such as the Sustainable Development Goals are part of this training project for university staff in higher education institutions in these two Himalayan countries.

"We promote inclusion in Bhutan and Nepal, promoting the improvement of access conditions and equity in higher education, encouraging the participation of the most disadvantaged groups through a strategy with an inclusive and gender approach", explains the project manager, Ruth Herrero.

The project with code 617363-EPP-1-ES-EPPKA2-CBHE-JP will last 3 years and has obtained a financing of almost 1 million euros from the European Commission.

In agreement with EUt+
In parallel to this stay of several weeks in the Murcia region, one of the UPCT's partner universities in this project, the University of Pokhara in Nepal, today signed an agreement with the European University of Technology (EUt+), through the Polytechnic University of Cartagena, which will allow new academic and scientific collaboration projects.

"We are very interested in exchange programs for engineering students," said Nepal University Vice-Rector Prem Narayan Aryal. Nepal Engineering College has already signed a similar agreement with EUT+ and UPCT as well as with other Indian and Nepalese universities within the scope of the InterNepInd project.
