On May 30, the first meeting of the Coordinating Council of the CIS Network University took place in 2024. The CIS NU is a project within the framework of which the participating universities successfully implement programs for joint training of masters. The event is moderated by the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia. By tradition, the meeting began with summarizing the results of the universities' activities in the 2023/2024 academic year.

KNRTU announced absentee participation in the event: our university was represented by Anna Sukhristina, Director of International Affairs, Svetlana Starygina, Director of the Institute of Automated Control Systems and Information Technologies, and Albina Azanova, Acting Chair of the Department of Light Industry Technology and Materials.

During the meeting, the possibility of including the new training direction “Light Industry Technology” in the list of CIS NU network programs was considered. KNRTU, M. Auezov South Kazakhstan University and Kyrgyz State Technical University named after I. Razzakov announced their intention to join this direction. The presentation on this issue was made by Albina Azanova, who described the relevance of joint educational programs in the light industry: “Today the light industry of Russia and the CIS countries are in the stage of active development and introduction of new technologies. International networking will contribute to the competitiveness of our Master's programs, increase academic mobility and development of cooperation in the scientific sphere.”

In addition, during the event, a solemn signing of the Memorandum on joining the new training direction “Information Science and Computer Engineering” within the framework of the CIS SU took place. The signing of the agreement on the creation of a network program with the National Polytechnic University of Armenia in this direction is planned in a distance format. Let us recall that KNRTU signed an agreement with M. Auezov South Kazakhstan University in the direction of “Biotechnology” at the end of 2023.
