Collaboration with Herat University Objective: Faculty Development

Engineering program begins, guided by the University of Wyoming and funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development. Program flourishes, in partnership with overseas universities and government agencies.

Two civil engineering faculty enroll for four semesters at the University of Hartford to work toward a master's degree (MSCE) in engineering. While at the university, these faculty will also:

  • Meet with nonprofit groups on and off campus such as the Hartford Council of Foreign Affairs or local Rotary and other civic clubs to share experiences and increase mutual understanding

  • Shadow an experienced University of Hartford professor and gain experience in developing syllabi, developing course descriptions, and documenting progress in anticipation of accreditation

  • Develop and help teach an online course

  • Begin developing a senior capstone design project to be shared between students at Herat University and University of Hartford.
