GUtech signs MoU with German water treatment company
German University of Technology in Oman (GUtech) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Hartmann, a German company, specialised in membrane technology for water treatment. “We are pleased to sign the agreement with Hartmann so that our engineering students can learn how water treatment systems function and how the systems are operated,” said Prof Dr Ing Michael Modigell, rector of GUtech. The university and Hartmann agreed to collaborate on establishing a training and research facility at GUtech.
“We will equip GUtech Engineering laboratories with Water Treatment Technology from Hartmann, in order to assist the students and enrich their knowledge,” said Dieter Hartmann, managing director of Hartmann Technology that was founded in 1983 and has grown rapidly since then, employing a total of 67 employees. In addition, internships and training support for GUtech students will be offered in their main offices in Germany.
The additional purpose of the collaboration will be a close relationship for educating GUtech students in water treatment technology and to train Hartmann customers from the GCC region at the GUtech facility. The company has several customers in Abu Dhabi.
GUtech offers BEng programmes in process engineering, mechanical engineering and environmental engineering. As part of the study programme, all students have to conduct internships.
