During first quarter of 2014, DSU established German Resource Center after an MOU signed with the Eurasia Institute of International Education (EIIE) located in Berlin, Germany for collaboration and establishment of long term relationship to advance shared objectives and vision for promotion of international educational cooperation. The MOU was signed during the visit of EIIE by a DSU delegation comprising of its Vice Chancellor, Engr. Prof. Dr. Sarfraz Hussain, TI (M), SI (M) and Dean, Engr. Prof. Dr. Athar Mahboob, TI. EIIE was represented by its Founding Director, Mr. Andrew Geddes. EIIE has been working for more than 20 years in the area of training international students from all over the world in German language and thus creating pathways for them to advance their education and careers through the world-class German universities.
Under the terms of the MOU, one major item of collaboration between DSU and EIIE is the establishment of a German Resource Center at DSU to impart training in German language by a native German teacher to students in DSU and other educational institutes (schools, colleges, universities) to facilitate the exploitation of educational, industrial and research opportunities provided by German institutions and industries. Furthermore, under the other terms of MOU, EIIE will also assist DSU in establishing collaborative linkages with German universities for exchange of students and faculty members and the conduct of summer camps of two weeks duration for DSU students to acquaint them with German language, culture, universities and industries.
