MATI and British Universities are prolonging their successful cooperation in the framework of joint project "Medical and engineering approaches for treatment of the musculoskeletal system of the human body". Professor Paul Wagstaff from Kingston University visited MATI and discussed with our scientists aspects of joint activity.
The official visit of Kingston University administration (KU, England) to the MATI took place this month. Long history of successful collaboration between MATI and KU includes many significant events for both universities. New Memorandum of Cooperation signed by MATI Rector Professor Alexander V. Rozhdestvensky and Dean of Faculty of Science, Engineering &Computing Professor Edith Sim will strengthen MATI and KU links. This is the 4th agreement on cooperation between MATI and KU during last 17th years. This event will give new impulse to the development of relations and expand the horizons of cooperation between our universities.
«MATI - Russian State Technological University» has established and successfully cooperates with several Chinese Universities. One of them is China University of Petroleum (CPU). In early April delegation of MATI including Deputy Dean of Faculty of Economics M. Pushkareva and Professor V. Kashirin have visited CPU. The main purpose of this visit was discussion on possibilities of student exchange and training of Chinese students at the level of MATI master program. Mutual understanding was achieved and practical steps for implementation were identified.
In the frame of joint project between MATI and leading British universities such as University College London (UCL) and Kingston University (KU) joint Russian-British seminar on "Medical and engineering approaches for treatment of the musculoskeletal system of the human body" was held. English and Russian experts in the field of materials science and bio-engineering as well as Moscow's leading doctors gave presentations and discussed recent developments in the field of application of aviation technology in medicine. The seminar was also attended by students and scientists of our university. The subject for the discussion was technologies for the production of titanium medical implants, which have been successfully developed by MATI scientists under the leadership of academician A. Ilyin. As result of the presentations and following discussions the points of mutual interest were found.
The second exchange one semester program for students of MATI from department "Applied Mathematics and Information Technology" and "Cybernetics" has started in April 5th at University of Kassel (Germany). As a result of the competitive selection nine students from MATI were enrolled for studying one semester in the Institute of Mathematics of the University of Kassel. At the end of training and successful examinations students will receive Erasmus certificates.
