K.N. Toosi University of Technology and University of Western Ontario recognize the importance of establishing overseas study and research opportunities for their Students to promote the development of intercultural competence, give students experience working in multinational research teams, and provide valuable exposure to multiple disciplinary and research perspectives.
Both universities recognize that international dual degree programs will provide such unique opportunities for their Students, and therefore, they enter into an agreement to establish Dual-Doctoral Degree Programs for Doctoral Students registered at their institutions. Both universities are setting out the procedures and rules that will govern Dual-Doctoral Degree Programs and the rights and obligations of each party with respect to the conduct of individual Dual-Doctoral Degree Programs.
KNTU and Western establish Dual-Doctoral Degree Programs between their two institutions, enabling students to pursue coordinated doctoral studies at both Universities and, if successful, be awarded a doctoral degree at each University.
