Dr. Ahmadi, TMU Chancellor, receives Syrian Minister of Higher Education
In a meeting held between Dr. Ahmadi and Syrian Minister of Higher Education, Dr. Ahmadi said that if requested TMU is ready to pursue the foundation of one branch in Syria by the name “Farabi”.
In a Joint meeting held between TMU chancellor and Dr. Atef-al-Nadaf, Syrian Minister of Higher Education on Wednesday July 4th, Dr. Ahmadi said: “In the areas of scientific cooperation with Syria, the establishment of Farabi Branch goes back to 15 years ago, and we are ready to pursue the work if there is still such a desire on the Syrian side”.
Referring to Dr. al-Nadaf’s desire to train faculty members and professors for the universities of Syria, Dr. Ahmadi added: “Based on its mission for the training of faculty members in Iran, TMU is prepared to offer this kind of service to Syrian students provided Syrian or Iranian Governments grant scholarships to such students. Many Syrian students have already completed their studies at TMU and graduated from it”
The Minister of Higher Education of Syria expressed hope that collaboration with TMU will continue in future and said: “we are well acquainted with the high scientific level of Tarbiat Modarres University through Syrian graduates”.
Dr. Al-Nadaf added: “We are willing to cooperate in the field of exchanging professors and hope that TMU can expand its relation with Syrian universities and hold joint scientific programs at postgraduate level. I invite Dr. Ahmadi and his colleagues to visit Syria and hold talk with its universities presidents”.
He also asked for a joint meeting to be held in Damascus to consolidate the executive agreements.
In another part of this meeting, Dr. Jalali, the deputy for academic affairs, called the Syrian students as diligent and successful ones and said: “As a host, we are entirely cooperating with the students of Syria, and we do not differentiate between Syrian and Iranian students at the time of graduation.”
