“Inking an agreement with industries is not an end by itself: it is a means to realize the aforementioned goals.”

It is often noted that our poverty is attributed to lack of education. Thus, in recognition of the country’s need, our government has set a policy and is actively engaged in reducing poverty level. One of the strategies in this regard is the creation of efficient, capable and problem-solving workforce through networking University and industry in tackling our long history often associated with poverty. One of the biggest challenges in achieving the objectives of the university reform is to improve the mismatch between university produces and the market demand of educated workforce. In order to overcome such challenges, establishing strong University-Industry Linkage (UIL) is imperative.

ASTU has ventured international as well as local attachment agreements as per Higher Education Proclamation No. 650/2009 Article 25(5) that states: “Every public institution shall have the responsibility to forge relations with industries for mutual benefits and on the basis of principled and transparent negotiations and agreements.” Likewise, as one of its core objectives, the Strategic Plan of ASTU states that it is committed to “design and implement practice oriented academic programs with due consideration to University-industry linkage”. In line with these guiding documents, ASTU has already signed memorandum of understanding with the following local industries and organizations:
