UNL, engineering partner with German university


 To enhance students' international experiences in engineering, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the Technical University of Clausthal in Clausthal-Zellerfeld, Germany, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in May 2014. Representing UNL in Germany were Dr. Jerry Hudgins, chair of the Electrical Engineering Department, and Electrical Engineering Professor Dr. Hamid Vakilzadian. As part of the agreement, TU Clausthal professor Dietmar Möller, who teaches Stochastic models, has been appointed an adjunct professor in the UNL College of Engineering’s Electrical Engineering Department. The partnership between the two universities will enable students to study abroad, as well as provide teaching and research collaborations among faculty. » Read the Technical University release.
