On Monday, Sept. 26, Dr. Eric Chowanietz, International Coordinator and Principal Lecturer at the Faculty of Technology, De Montfort University (DMU), visited Asian U for talks about cooperation projects with Ulrich Werner, Director of International Development at Asian U.
With Aj. Charurat Tantraporn, Liberal Arts Faculty Dean, and Martin Locker, Head of Multimedia, Dr. Chowanietz agreed on establishing mutual Multimedia Summer Schools which give Asian U students access to the BBC Academy with its high-end 3D-TV studios run by the British BBC, and allow DMU’s technology-oriented students to attend the arts-oriented courses of the B.A. Multimedia programme at Asian U. Furthermore, a Multimedia double-degree programme is planned (B.A. from Asian U and B.Sc. from DMU), for which the details will be worked out in the coming weeks.
