PhD. Leticia Miriam Torres Guerra, Cimav’s General Director, signed a joint graduate program with Queen Mary University of London for dual degree of Masters in Materials Science. For the QMUL, Professor Wen Wang, Deputy Director and Executive Dean for Science and Engineering, signed such agreement.
This program promotes Cimav’s internationalization efforts toward education without frontiers and the enrichment of the student’s knowledge.
This joint graduate program will allow enrolled students to attend their first year at Cimav’s facilities to take the courses of the academic plan, and to continue with the experimental part of the program at the Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) for the following 12 months.
The Mexican citizens accepted in this program will benefit from the QMUL facilities and from an academic tutor that will be assigned for assistance during their stay in London.
This agreement came into effect on July 31st, 2020 and will be valid for 5 years and can be extended by mutual consent.
For Cimav, the dual degree strengthens the academic profile of its graduates, and provides greater advantages in the job market by improving their competitiveness. Additionally, living in another country in these times of globalization, will enrich their international experience.
