MPEI Rector has been an honorary professor of the Mongolian State University of Science and Technology since 2016, and also a co-chairman of the Board of the Russian-Mongolian Consortium of Technical Universities from the Russian side. In 2018, within the active support of Nikolay Rogalev, MPEI opened the Russian-Mongolian Center for Digital Technologies in the Energy Industry.

Nikolay Rogalev spoke in answer, expressing deep gratitude for the award:
“I am deeply sure that any person visiting Mongolia voluntarily, will fall in love with this country. I’m not an exception, I fell in love with it on my first visit, with its unique nature and spaces and, of course, with people. I’m honored to take this award and I take it on behalf of all the University. Being an Honorable professor of Mongolian University, I am glad to admit that two Mongolian professors are Honorable Doctors of MPEI as well. We will continue to apply all our efforts to maintain our cooperation and brotherhood relationship with you.”
