MEETINGS WITH FOREIGN ALUMNI AT MPEI
Each year the number of contacts with foreign alumni with whom we communicate is increased. At present our data base has more than one thousand foreign alumni addresses, whom we usually communicate with.
Beginning with 2000, we arrange the annual meeting at MPEI of a group of our foreign alumni. From this year more than 300 foreign alumni were able to visit MPEI for a short period both on the basis of our official invitation and being independently in Moscow during their official visit to some Russian organizations.
The first information about the annual meeting are distributed usually each December together with the New Year Greetings by the usual mail, via electronic mail and place it on MPEI site (www.mpei.ru).
The typical program of this alumni meeting includes the conversation of MPEI Rector and Vice-Rectors, visits to different departments, meeting with their professors and former students. We are trying to organize some cultural program. There is MPEI Museum where the alumni may recall the main MPEI history. Annual alumni meeting is arranged usually during the celebration of the total Day of MPEI Alumni at the end of May. More than 1.500 Russian alumni at this celebration and among them there are the Russian alumni, professors and MPEI veterans.
MPEI covers all expenses linked with official invitations to Russia, the visa support, pick-up service when arrive and depart. Foreign alumni should cover the international travel expenses to Moscow and back, and to cover the expenses on accommodation and meals.
