The agreement, signed under the slogan “Al-Sina’a Jam’etna” (Industry Unites Us), aims to strengthen relations between the two parties through the exchange of technical information and know-how, scientific and engineering research, consultancy and laboratory testing advancement.
The cooperation covers a wide range of fields such as chemical engineering, electrical engineering, civil engineering, energy and the ecological sciences. Its operating mechanism relies on services that include scientific support, sharing of findings, technology transfers, training sessions, seminars, workshops, and full coordination at the local and international levels.
Dr. Adnan Al-Sayed Hussein considered INDEVCO Group a close friend of the university and consequently of Lebanon. He was also keen to highlight the faculty’s conformity with European academic standards and its vital role in promoting productivity at the national level. “Our exams are flawless, and our graduates occupy top positions in Arab countries and the world,” Hussein proudly stated.
During the ceremony, Frem signaled that the engineer is the quarry from which building stones are extracted. He added that it is the core duty of the Lebanese University to chisel potential and turn it into an economic benefit. “In a country that suffers from paralysis in the decision-making mechanism, it is only through joining efforts and encouraging scientific research that we can achieve quantum leaps and increase productivity,” Frem concluded.
