Independent University

Middlesex University (MU) and Independent University Bangladesh (IUB) signed a Memorandum of Understanding in May-June 2005 to establish a collaborative arrangement in academic teaching, research and consultancy in flood mitigation and allied fields.

The collaborative programme has evolved according to the mutual interests of IUB and MU (Flood Hazard Research Centre). IUB provided office space for an FHRC link office, and MU has provided an office manager and initial resources. Most collaboration has been with the School of Environmental Science and Management and School of Liberal Arts. Objectives and activities include:

  • exchange of staff and visiting scholars.
  • joint projects and consultancies.
  • support for masters students of IUB to cover fieldwork costs for dissertation projects related to floods, floodplain management and water management issues.
  • developing short courses in relevant areas, especially research methods, floods and water management, community based resource management, etc.
  • compiling information on recent floods.

Through this collaboration IUB has developed and conducted with FHRC a series of short courses related to flood risk and floodplain management, and has developed a Master of Science in Natural Resources Management with a specialisation in Flood Plain and Disaster Management
