  4. Partnerships: to develop balanced relationships with internationally well-ranked universities for research and educational common programmes;
  5. Research: to provide opportunities for faculty members and researchers abroad by research collaborations and research sabbaticals;
  6. Economic development: to develop off-shore training sessions for international engineers;
  7. Staff: to support development of multicultural experiences, to promote international recruitment and staff mobility.
