On the morning of December 27, UESTC signed a memorandum of understanding for cooperation with College of Information Science and Technology, University of Nebraska at Omaha, USA (UNO). The signing of this MOU has paved the way for establishing a long-term partnership between the two sides in scientific research as well as in faculty member and/or student exchange.



Present at the signing ceremony were Prof. Deepak Khazanchi, Associate Dean of the UNO College of Information Science and Technology, Prof. Ilze Zigurs, Department Chair of Information Systems and Quantitative Analysis of the college, Mr. Li Ye, UESTC School of International Education, Mr. Zeng Yong and Mr. Zhao Biquan, Dean and Party Secretary respectively of UESTC School of Management and Economics, and some UESTC student representatives.

Mr. Zeng Yong expressed warm welcome to the guests, wishing to see further cooperation with UNO. Prof. Deepak Khazanchi said that he also expected to see on the basis of the existing cooperative relationship further development, especially in student and faculty exchange. Mr. Li Ye added that the signing of the MOU would hopefully bring the two universities closer in collaboration in different areas.

A friendly talk was held afterwards in which some UESTC students, who had visited UNO last May in the "Management-Electronic Engineering Experimental Class" program, expressed their gratitude to UNO for the instruction and hospitality UNO provided. Some professors from UESTC School of Management and Economics, who had been engaged in overseas academic visits, also joined in the communication with the UNO visitors.
