CCT International and American University of Beirut (AUB) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and Collaboration Agreement on May 20, 2015 outlining the basis for collaboration and joint activities in fields of mutual interests.

The agreement provides for establishing a framework for collaboration and co-operation in various activities, among these:

  • Support of academic and educational events: CCT will financially support selected AUB and CMPS events, as well as academic and educational activities and endeavors.
  • Research Grants: CCT and AUB faculty members will work together on problems and issues suggested by CCT that will be built into mutually agreed upon research grants.
  • Student Tuition Support: CCT will financially support AUB Master of Science students every year.
  • Workshops and Seminars: CCT developers will propose and deliver technical seminars and workshops related to the mentioned topic to students at AUB.  The aim is to expose students to topics not covered in their curriculum, and to enhance the academic-industry cooperation. The CMPS department will facilitate the logistics for these seminars and workshops.

In addition, CCT will provide a research grant to AUB for the purpose of furthering research and education in the area of Construction Management Technology; and because CCT believes in innovation and investing in science, a supplementary support will be given to the research project entitled: “2D Piping Drawing White Space Management”.

The event was followed the next day by the distribution awards to AUB undergraduate and graduate students for accomplishing the best projects for the year 2014-2015.
