MCAST and Nord­win Col­lege col­lab­o­rate

The Malta Business Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

MCAST and Nord­win Col­lege signed a Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing that will see both par­ties col­lab­o­rate to de­velop a joint ini­tia­tive in the field of Ap­plied Sci­ences.

Over the past year, MCAST has been col­lab­o­rat­ing with Nord­win Col­lege in Leeuwar­den, the Nether­lands on a num­ber of projects in­volv­ing the mo­bil­ity of sev­eral Mal­tese and Dutch stu­dents. These projects mainly re­volved around Ap­plied Sci­ences with spe­cial fo­cus on wa­ter projects and food tech­nol­ogy col­lab­o­ra­tions, as well as joint man­age­ment and staff net­work­ing and ex­changes.

This work­ing re­la­tion­ship has now been fur­ther strength­ened with the sign­ing of a MoU be­tween these two col­leges. The ob­jec­tive of the col­lab­o­ra­tion is to stim­u­late the per­sonal de­vel­op­ment of the par­tic­i­pants par­tic­u­larly in re­gard of cul­tural aware­ness and in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ten­cies needed for em­ploy­a­bil­ity.

The MoU was signed in Nord­win Col­lege it­self in the pres­ence of stu­dents and staff from both in­sti­tu­tions. Rep­re­sent­ing MCAST was the first group of stu­dents fol­low­ing the new­ly­launched Ad­vanced Diploma in Food Tech­nol­ogy and some of their tu­tors, who are cur­rently on a two-week hands-on Eras­mus+ pro­gramme in In­dus­trial Food Pro­duc­tion.
