Oregon Gov. Ted Kulongoski said that the state, along with Oregon State University, will help Iraq universities develop energy and water conservation, green construction and other sustainable engineering and design programs.
The governor said that the state and OSU will be signing an MOU with Iraq’s minister of higher education and scientific research to help Iraq universities in a five-year agreement that will include faculty and student exchanges.
“The nation of Iraq can begin to train their own engineers in sustainable growth and development,” Kulongoski said in a prepared statement. “And Oregon students and faculty get on-the-ground training, strengthening their base of knowledge, planning and implementation.” Click here for more information.
