TV BRICS report on MPEI participation in the University Alliance of the Silk Road
In September 2022, the international
network TV BRICS filmed
a report on the participation of MPEI in the University
Alliance of the Silk Road.
The University Alliance of the Silk Road
has been active since 2015,
helping universities develop cooperation in the field of
education. Today, the Alliance includes more than one and a half hundred
members, including MPEI. At the same time, our university is a member of the
Executive Committee of the Alliance.
Sergey Shirinsky, Head of Department of
International Relations, noted that many Chinese universities are long-term MPEI
partners, which helps to actively cooperate with China in the framework of
summer schools, forums, conferences, webinars and student exchanges.
In recent years, the most interesting
element of cooperation with China has been the exchange of students within the
framework of a joint educational program between MPEI and North China Electric
Power University (NCEPU), which provides to receive receipt of two diplomas.
The program started in 2018, the first graduates of the program are now
participating in the master's program at MPEI and other universities. Chinese
students study the first 2 years of a coordinated bachelor 's program at two NCEPU
campuses in Beijing and Baoding , while simultaneously studying Russian in
China. An MPEI staff member is sent to China to teach the Russian language to
students of the joint program. The best students get the opportunity to
continue their education at MPEI. The result of the successful development of
the program is the receipt by students of two diplomas by MPEI and NCEPU.
Currently, more than 100 students from
China are studying at MPEI. They choose MPEI due to the wide range of technical
specialties offered by the university, and hope for great prospects for further
development in the chosen areas.
