A delegation from ParisTech, the Alliance of the Most Prestigious Graduate Schools in Engineering and Science in France, visited KNUST through arrangements with the International Programmes Office (IPO-KNUST).

The ParisTech Team (led by Dr. Florence Lelait) presented to the audience of staff and postgraduate students/Teaching Assistants (from College of Science, College of Engineering and College of Agriculture and Natural Resources-KNUST) on opportunities for collaboration in academia and research.
