Exploring Collaboration between FST and Thomas More University

On Friday 9th February 2024, Professor Stijn Coenen, President of Thomas More University of Applied Sciences, paid a visit to the Faculty of Science and Technology (FST). During his visit on Friday, he engaged in discussions with FST's Dean, Professor Onyari, regarding potential areas of collaboration. The focus was on exploring collaborative opportunities not only within FST but also with sister faculties at Thomas More University of Applied Sciences. Professor Stijn, who was on a Global Engagement mission in Africa, specifically in Kenya, was graciously hosted by Dr. Ezekiel Mecha from the Department of Biochemistry at FST. This meeting marked a significant step towards strengthening partnerships and fostering academic exchanges between institutions.

In 2021, The University of Nairobi and Thomas More University of Applied Sciences forged a collaborative agreement, solidified by a memorandum of understanding (MOU). This partnership has facilitated over 40 University of Nairobi students' participation in Virtual Exchange, engaging in Collaborative Online International Learning with Thomas More University of Applied Sciences in Antwerp, Belgium. Additionally, faculty members from both institutions have seized the opportunity to visit and engage in benchmarking activities, fostering mutual growth and knowledge exchange.
