A workshop on "Mining Projects Feasibility Study" which lasted from 27th of Aug. up to the 1st of Sept. and attended by 27 Afghan Faculty members came to an end on Thursday.
Afghanistan is a rich country in terms of its mining resources which are estimated to be more than 3.000 billion US $ worth. The exploration and exploitation of these potential treasures can revive socio-economic conditions of this country. One of the main reasons for underdevelopment of Afghanistan concerns its scarce specialized work force in different areas including mining engineering and geological sciences. In the same line, TMU signed a MOU with German GIZ and DAAD Institutes to jointly cooperate in Academic Mining Education in Afghanistan (AMEA) program.
The first training workshop which was attended by faculty members of Kabul University, Polytechnic University of Kabul and Balkh University lasted for six days and it was chaired by Dr. Ahmasd Reza Sayadi, associate professor of Mining Economy Department of TMU.
This workshop was also supported by TMU International Scientific Collaboration Department, Free Training Office and Faculty of Technology and Engineering
