KNRTU signed an agreement with Gazpromneft on the joining of our university to the Universities League, a large-scale project dedicated to develop partnership between business, industry, science and education. The members of the League are universities with high research and educational potential that are ready to participate in the company’s development projects and programs.

The agreement was signed by Acting Rector of KNRTU, Yury Kazakov and by Rector of Gazprom Neft Corporate University, Ilya Dementiev. Currently, the educational digital system of Universities League comprises 35 educational institutions from 16 regions of Russia.

“Every year Gazpromneft creates research centers at the universities, equips laboratories and launches new Master’s Degree programs with the participation of experts and mentors from the company. In joint collaboration we create unique educational programs, develop university’s students and faculty staff and launch innovational projects that allow us to be the leaders of the industry today and shape the contours of our future” – said Ilya Demetiev.

The main areas of cooperation between KNRTU and Gazpromneft will be related to the preparation and implementation of joint scientific and educational projects.

“Though participation in the League we will be able to have a better understanding of Gaspromneft expectations in terms of the competencies of our graduates who will be employed by the company. KNRTU has experience in developing educational programs to meet the needs of large employers. Such combination of resources moves the process of training of highly qualified specialists to a new level” – noted Yury Kazakov.
