Old Dominion University (ODU)

It was a long time ago that I had the chance to sit in a university class. Today it was the chance, and it was recognizable. Computer Networking, at ODU, one of the 7 universities in Norfolk (VA) area. The opportunity was with Jonathan Backens, Team Leader LITA at LinkNet, to join him to one of his classes, as part of his PhD training and activities. This was after meetings with a host of professors in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Dr. Albin is a kind an driven program director, and keen to see the world developed. He carries the vision, and got Dr. Akan (associate dean) and Dr. Dhali (chairman) involved. Chances for the UNZA cooperation with LinkNet to have more educators involved! An American university day, a good experience.
