The two executives who arrived were Rector Anatoly Aleksandrov and First Vice-Rector Boris Padalkin. They inspected the Engineering Center labs. Director of NCI Makhmut Ganiev showed every lab, and his first deputy Larisa Simonova talked about the Center’s research.
Cooperation options were then discussed. In particular, it’s possible that MSTU academics will be giving lectures. Joint research for KAMAZ is also envisioned as viable. A double diploma program is in the works as well.
NCI is currently working hard on establishing new Open Labs with leading Russian and overseas experts. Attracting one of the leading Russian technical universities is an important part in this direction.
