We have an objective to develop human resource, technological, manufacturing facilities in order to take a rightful place in the currently forming global markets. It is extremely important to build up a community of engineering centers, which could effectively cooperate with the existing development institutes, state corporations and foreign partners – and a Polytechnic University has a lot to be proud of in this field.
