Preceeded by research co-operations in the fields of Bee-Research and Computer Science, an Agreement of Cooperation was signed in 2003 by the Rectors of the Universty of Ngaoundéré and the University of Bremen. In 2006, a first workshop series on Environmental Sciences has been started: 2006 in Ngaoundéré, 2007 in Bremen. A Subject Related Partnership (SRP) has begun in 2009 supported by DAAD (2009-2012; 2013-2016).

The project is in its second four years' phase. The previous Subject-Related Partnership (SRP) 2009-12 has focused on the design of the first Master of Ecology in Cameroon and the development of the existing Master of Computer Science by transferring modules from Bremen to Ngundéré. In the follow-up SRP 2013-16, the achieved framework needs to be operationalized and put into general practice with an assured high quality. The framework includes further elaboration of syllabus for the MEC and MCS, an e-learning environment including an educational platform (MOODLE), the use of the ReviTec® teaching, research and demonstration sites established in 2012/14, and - in co-operation with a DAAD DIES-project - the development of key competences, particularly of proficiency in English.

The project is based on the two columns Ecology and Computer Science. The respective Master’s courses developed within the project are linked via innovative tools such as e-learning and educational platform. Interdisciplinary student projects to solve concrete environmental problems are envisaged with participation of students of ecology and computer science. Quality assessment and assurance as well as securing sustainability are topical issues of the project. South-South co-operation between the Universities of Ngaoundéré and Ismailia (Egypt) and Zaria (Nigeria) is developed.
