The ADTCS office is the focal point for international engagements or visits for the CEPS. Much of this work is in cooperation with the SQU International Cooperation Office. Among the matters expected are the following:
- International visits from universities/institutions/centers to the college for joint collaboration.
- Joint events with the International Cooperation Office (workshops, symposiums, discussions etc.).
- Facilitating joint agreements (Letter of Understanding) with international universities (the office’s role is to facilitate the agreement in-cooperation with the International Cooperation Office. However, activation of the agreements is subject to college and departments).
