NMSTU Welcomes Guests from France, Belgium and Poland

On March 20, NMSTU became the venue for a big meeting with professors from France, Belgium and Poland, who gathered for discussions within the following EU funded TEMPUS project: Modernization of two cycles (MA, BA) of competence-based curricula in material engineering according to the best experience of Bologna  Process (MMATENG).

The project with 16 participating universities from 7 countires (Belgium, Germany, France, Poland, Israel, Russia and Ukraine) was launched in 2014 with the first master classes conducted in 2015.

In his opening speech, NMSTU’s First Vice Rector – Vice Rector for Research and Innovation Mikhail Chukin welcomed his academic and industrial colleagues, who had been working hard to implement the project, and expressed his confident belief for further projects and further cooperation.

As a result of the project, new Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes have been developed at NMSTU in the field of Technology of Nanomaterials. The new programmes are based on the outcomes of basic and applied research carried out by the University. According to Peter Arras, Professor at KU Leuven in Belgium, 12 new educational programmes and 3 modules have been developed in the course of the project, and the University of Leuven benefited from new laboratories and new equipment. In 2015, further training courses were conducted for European university teachers. The total of 14 master classes have been given, including laboratory classes. Talking about this year Professor Arras mentioned that the plan was to train at least 20 students at each target university and carry out a trial work together with the corporate and academic participants.

In these two days, the total of eight master classes took place in Magnitogorsk led by representatives of the following European universities: KU Leuven (Belgium), École Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Lille (France), Cracow University of Technology (Poland) and NMSTU.  The participants included Don State Technical University, Far Eastern Federal University and Kazan National Research Technical University from Russia. The lectures covered various topics – from stainless steel to business planning. July of 2017 will mark the end of the MMATENG project.
