Covenant, Texas Varsity to Explore Areas of Mutual Interests
Covenant University and the Texas A&M University, the United States, have reached an understanding on the possibility of having a collaboration in areas of mutual interest.
Hints to this effect were given by the Vice-Chancellor, Covenant University, Professor AAA. Atayero, and the Head, Department of Mathematics, Texas A&M University, Dr. Christopher Thron, on Wednesday, March 15, 2017, when the latter paid a courtesy call on the Vice-Chancellor.
Dr. Thron, an Assistant Professor of Mathematics, was at Covenant University as an Instructor at the ‘Workshop on the Use of Octave and R’ organized by Covenant’s Department of Mathematics.
Both the Covenant Vice-Chancellor and Dr. Thron had discussions on issues bordering on the application of Mathematics, data mining and data access among others, with Professor Atayero stating that the University was introducing IBM works to its students for data analytics.
Dr. Thron acknowledged the steady and impactful progress being made by Covenant University in the delivery of quality education and implored the University to always follow the market in keeping abreast of new discoveries in data mining.
And while wishing Dr. Thron a good outing at the Workshop on the Use of Octave and R, Professor Atayero urged him to look at areas of academic interest where both Covenant University and Texas A&M University could collaborate, a proposal the visiting scholar endorsed.
Also at the meeting were the Dean, College of Science of Technology, Professor Nicholas Omoregbe and the Head, Department of Mathematics, Dr. Timothy Anake.
