On 26 June, representatives of Kazakh National Research Technical University after K. I. Satpayev were talking about a double degree programme and about internships of students from Almaty at our university. Bialystok University of Technology was visited by Prof. Rinat Iskakov, Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs, and Prof. Bolat Kuspangaliyev, Director of the Institute of Architecture and Construction.

Kazakh National Research Technical University after K. I. Satpayev is one of partner universities of Bialystok University of Technology. The agreement on cooperation between our institutions was signed in 2008.

‘The university from Almaty has undergone dynamic organizational changes in the last few years. After a fusion with a local research institute, it gained the status of a scientific university under the auspices of Kazakh Ministry of Education and Science,’ said Prof. Marta Kosior-Kazberuk, Vice Rector for Education and International Cooperation. ‘It is one of the most prestigious technical universities in the whole region. We are trying to revive our cooperation, therefore I went to Almaty in April this year and that is why Rector Iskakov visited us today. It is also essential because of the development of international cooperation in the Erasmus+ Partner countries programme by BUT,’ she added.

The delegation from the Kazakh university met Prof. Lech Dzienis, BUT Rector, and Prof. Kosior-Kazberuk. They visited the Inno-Eko-Tech laboratories, the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, and they also had a meeting with the authorities of the Faculty of Architecture.

Kazakh National Research Technical University after K. I. Satpayev is interested in conducting student exchange for one term or in arranging student apprenticeships at the Bialystok University of Technology, because studying abroad is required at KazNRTU to get a Master’s degree. During the talks, offers of developing cooperation concerning double degree programmes at the Master and PhD levels were also mentioned. The university from Almaty strongly supports its students who study abroad. ‘That is why we are planning to work up programmes dedicated to PhD student exchange,’ informed Prof. Kosior-Kazberuk.
