On January 30th, 2024, there was a solemn ceremony of laying the first stone of the construction of the “MPEI-Hainan University”, as well as the start of the first stage of the Chinese-Russian Science and Technology Park and Research Institute in Haikou, in Haikou, Hainan Province (People’s Republic of China).


MPEI Rector headed the Russian delegation. The guests of the ceremony were greeted by Feng Yaou, President of Eurasia International Corporation. Nikolay Rogalev, MPEI Rector, Liu Chun, Mayor of Wenchang, Head of the Administration of the International Aerospace City of Hainan Province, Yang Yongping, Vice-Chairman of the MPEI-Hainan Academic Council, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering Sciences, Rector of the North China Electric Power University made welcoming remarks. The ceremony was attended by Zhang Yanzhong, Chairman of the MPEI-Hainan Academic Council, Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering Sciences, as well as over 40 representatives of government authorities, universities, leading banks and organizations in China. After the ceremony, a business meeting was held with Long Weidong, Vice-Governor of Hainan Province, Secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) City Committee.


"MPEI has a long history of partnership with China. The MPEI-Hainan University will be an educational organization of higher education built on the basis of organizational experience and educational programs of our university. For us, laying the first stone of a joint university is an indescribable emotion and a great responsibility. I am sure that further work and plans will form a world-class research cluster," Nikolay Rogalev, MPEI Rector, said.


The time of this ceremony was not chosen by chance. According to Chinese tradition, it is customary to lay the first stone of construction on the eve of the Chinese New Year falling in mid-February this year. This symbolic act will later become a large-scale step in the creation of a modern educational center for the training of highly qualified specialists in the energy field and other high-tech industries for the economies of both countries.

To date, MPEI and the International Corporation "Eurasia" have done a lot of work. In 2023, Huai Jinpeng, Chinese Minister of Education, signed a decree on the construction and recruitment of students. Two master programs in power energy and artificial intelligence are being implemented at the temporary campus. Design and survey work has been carried out as part of the construction of the main campus in Wenchang city.


In the period from October 16th to November 1st , 2023, the first graduate students of the MPEI -Hainan Joint University were trained in the fields of electrical power engineering and artificial intelligence technologies within the framework of the autumn International School in the field of electrical engineering, implemented by MPEI and the North China Electric Power University.

The training was organized on Hainan Island, at the temporary campus of the MPEI - Hainan Joint University in Linshui City. Students from 7 countries had classes with MPEI professors of the Electrical Power Engineering Institute and the Information Technologies and Computer Science Institute.

The educational project "MPEI - Hainan University" is included in the Roadmap of Russian-Chinese Humanitarian Cooperation until 2030, including the one regulating interaction between the countries in the field of higher education, which was signed on October 25th , 2023 in Bishkek on a meeting of the Council of Heads of Government of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, and enjoys great support from the Ministry Education of the People's Republic of China, the People's Government of Hainan Province and the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Russia.
