In this paper, we document the case of a virtual/remote graduate student supervision the author carried out at the Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia from the US over a period of two years. The theses of three engineering and two computer science students at the MS level were successfully supervised in this period. At one point, this virtual supervision of students at the computer science department of Addis Ababa University (AAU) by external faculty at the US had accounted to almost one-third of the supervised MS theses in the whole department. Lessons on the adoption of similar collaborations between US universities and overseas universities is also investigated and reported
