New Course on “Planning in Palestine: Link between Theory and Practice”
Based on a cooperation agreement with the German Agency
for International Cooperation, (GIZ), the Architectural Engineering Department at BZU has introduced a new course titled: Planning in Palestine: Link between Theory
and Practice. This course is part of the
Palestinian-German Local Governance and Civil Society Development Programme (LGP), which is a
technical cooperation program within the priority area ldquo;Governancerdquo; of the
German Palestinian Development Cooperation.
The course aims at academic development in professional work through cooperation with relevant institutions, thereby assisting students
in meeting labor market needs. The course also aims to provide students with an opportunity to build
their capacities and
enhance their knowledge
in the field of local government.
Department Chair, Dr. Samar Al Nazer, began by underscoring strategic
planning in architectural engineering
and local government.
She applauded GIZrsquo;s role in training students and broadening their horizons of knowledge. Faculty of Engineering Dean, Dr. Afif Hasan, noted that this Agreement
reflects the Facultyrsquo;s policy of developing teaching programs
that respond to community needs.
GIZ Representative, Mr. Ulrich Nitschke, expressed his pleasure at cooperating
with the Department, hoping that students will benefit
from this new course and implement constructive strategies and projects.
