Later, it was chosen only 8 projects, including our college project titled "Review and update the curriculum for the B.Sc program of College of Science of University of Diyala, Iraq"
The project consists of two phases, the first one is to train a number of professors in the United States of America to update curriculum of some departments of the college by cooperation and coordination with one of the US universities and institutes that will be determined later.
