European Erasmus program will help the University of Lomé to upgrade engineering training

(Togo First) - Six higher education institutions in Togo and Senegal will benefit from the expertise of four European Universities in strengthening their engineering training to reach the global engineering standards. The six African Universities were selected via the European Erasmus Program.

In Togo, beneficiaries include the University of Lomé (with the Crossroad for Innovation and Business), and the Institute of Applied Modern Technology. Senegal is represented by the Cheikh Anta Diop University, Gaston Berger University, the Catholic University of West Africa (UCAO), and the Polytechnic School of Thiès.

The project, presented during the celebration of the Erasmus Day on October 11, is part of the program for the Appropriation of International Standards for the Structuring of Engineering Education in West Africa (ASICAO), launched six months ago in Lomé. ASICAO aims to help the countries of the sub-region to get qualified human resources that meet international standards in this field. Specifically, the objective is “to offer students the best possible quality of engineering training and to forge international inter-university partnerships for perfectly balanced student exchanges in terms of academic mobility,” according to Timothée Toury, the project’s coordinator.

Erasmus is a program that enables experience sharing between universities, major European Universities, and educational institutions throughout the world. The initiative, which makes it possible to offer capacity-building opportunities to these actors, is one of the tools of European higher education.
