ETU "LETI" signed an agreement of cooperation in research and education with the Tashkent State Technical University (TSTU).
On October 9, 2019, a meeting with representatives of the Tashkent State Technical University took place at St. Petersburg Electrotechnical University "LETI." Talat Magrupov, Professor of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Tashkent State Technical University, and Seit Abdikhalikov, Senior Lecturer at the Department of Biomedical Engineering, took part in the talks. Zafar Yuldashev, Head of the Department of Biotechnical Systems at ETU "LETI," and Anna Glazova, Associate Professor of the Department, received foreign colleagues at the university.
During the meeting, the parties agreed on the development of the academic mobility of teachers and students. It is planned that the leading teachers of ETU "LETI" will give lectures at TSTU, colleagues from Uzbekistan will take internships at the St. Petersburg university, and students of the Tashkent State Technical University will take part in summer and winter schools at ETU "LETI."
Parties highlighted biomedical engineering, instrumentation, energy and electrical engineering, metrology, automation and control of technological processes and production, and corporate governance as the main fields of cooperation.
“We are very pleased to work with colleagues from Uzbekistan. We share similar approaches to the research organization, educational processes, and the desire of both parties to implement all their plans. Contact with universities from Central Asian countries is extremely important for ETU "LETI," since, according to experts, this region will actively develop in the coming decades. We hope to achieve success in our cooperation.”
The roadmap for cooperation also involves the development of joint research and academic activities: the preparation of joint articles, study guides, and monographs.
The parties plan to implement joint projects “Development and Implementation of a Training Program for Masters in Biomedical Engineering in Central Asia" and “Development of a Quality System of Engineering Education in Universities of Central Asia” under the Erasmus+ program involving universities in Germany and Kazakhstan.
