Over 150 students attended an information session in the morning at USC. The deans provided comprehensive information about AIT, and the programs, projects, scholarships, and internship opportunities available within their respective schools.

In the afternoon, a leadership meeting took place, involving engagements with the Vice-President, Deans, Heads of Departments, and Directors of International Affairs of USC. This meeting further solidified the commitment of both universities to fostering academic excellence and international cooperation.

Both parties expressed their satisfaction with the outcomes of the meeting and are eager to build upon this collaboration. As the collaboration between AIT and USC continues to evolve, it promises to bring about significant advancements and opportunities for students and researchers alike.
