The forging of these partnerships marks a milestone in RTU’s commitment to enhancing its academic offerings and fostering international cooperation. Held on March 28, 2024, the event marked a momentous occasion for the institutions and opening doors to a myriad of opportunities for academic and cultural exchange.

The agreement was sealed during a formal ceremony attended by key representatives from the institutions. In particular, Mr. Donato Z.
