During a recent meeting, representatives from the Kyrgyz State Technical University and Ural State Mining University in Russia discussed the possibility of coordinating future collaborations in their mining and engineering departments.
The universities primarily plan to cooperate in two areas: research and education. University officials are also determined to establish a more thorough outline of their collaboration in the near future.
The Kyrgyz Republic has made mining one of its top priorities, and the country’s mining engineer program is remarkably popular. At this time, however, Kyrgyz State Technical University's branches do not hold the same level of expertise as Ural State Mining University.
Ural State Mining University has a strong reputation for being results oriented and successful, which is why the university trains such qualified mining engineers, and why the Kyrgyz Republic seeks the university’s expertise.
Both the Institute of Mining and Mining Technologies and the Kyzyl-Kiya Institute of Nature and Geotechnology are under the umbrella of Kyrgyz State Technical University.
