MU engineering researchers fly to Iraq

Researchers from the MU College of Engineering plan to fly to Iraq on June 17th as part of a new collaboration with the University of Technology in Baghdad.

 A team from the College of Engineering will fly to Iraq on June 17th to collaborate with the University of Technology as a part of a grant from the U.S. Department of State. Project leader Vlad Likholetov said: “Due to circumstances, Iraq has been isolated for a number of years, the sanctions and the war and everything, which kind of undermined their capabilities in higher education. Now they’re trying to restore that capability.”

Likholetov says faculty from the University of Technology plan to visit MU in the future for training.
