Karshi University became a partner of SPbPU
Karshi State University (Karshi, Republic of Uzbekistan) has become a new partner of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University! The city of Karshi is located in the Karshidarya region of Uzbekistan, which is one of the key energy reserves in the republic. Karshi State University (KarSU) is one of the leading universities of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the leader of the higher education system in the region, a dynamically developing scientific and educational center.
The university includes 15 faculties, including the Faculty of Physics and the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science, with about 25000 students. KarSU annually hosts significant conferences, including conferences in mathematics («Modern Stochastic Models & Problems of Actuarial Mathematics»), biology («Modern problems of biological research») and others. In April 2023, the Center of Russian Language was opened at KarSU.
At the end of October, Alexander Korotkov, Director of the Institute of Electronics and Telecommunications, visited Karshi State University. One of the main goals of the visit was to summarize the results of the joint research work of the scientific group of IE&T SPbPU and colleagues of the Faculty of Physics of KarSU on the project «Autonomous power sources based on heat-converting elements». Alexander Korotkov met with professors, students and postgraduate students of the Physics Department of KSU. One of the key participants of the joint research was Ilkhom Bekpulatov, Vice-Rector for Scientific Activities of KarSU, who has already visited IE&T SPbPU several times with working visits. The results of joint scientific work have been published in a number of articles.
The official part of Alexander Korotkov’s visit began with the ceremony of handing over the originals of the agreement on scientific and educational cooperation between KarSU and SPbPU, signed by the rectors of both universities. From now on our universities are full partners!
The partnership agreement with SPbPU will be very important for our university as it covers many areas. Our special interest is in the development of technical fields — physics, mathematics, chemistry, biotechnology. In the field of economics and humanities, we would like to organize joint training programs in the future, — shared the plans of the Rector of Karshi State University Professor Dilmurod Nabiev.
During the talks, the high potential of cooperation between our universities in education and science was noted. In continuation of the already established ties between IE&T SPbPU and the Physics Department of KarSU, it was proposed to prepare a program of internships for KarSU employees in SPbPU to develop and build up the experience of joint research and development of other topics in the field of microelectronics. The colleagues from Uzbekistan have a significant interest in the field of medical physics. Another urgent task that SPbPU and Karshi State University will start working on together in the nearest future is the possibility of organizing a network program in economics.
It is clear that mutual understanding forms the basis for fruitful educational and scientific activities between universities at the international level. To build such relationships, to consolidate them, to develop them — this is our task of the current day, — said Alexander Korotkov, Director of IE&T SPbPU.
During his visits to SPbPU Ilkhom Bekpulatov was impressed by the Museum of SPbPU History. And already at the official level the topic of cooperation between the museums of SPbPU and KarSU was proposed, which is especially important in the year of the 125th anniversary of Polytechnic. Thus, in the near future the two new partners will develop scientific ties in several areas of physics, educational projects in the field of economics, as well as humanitarian cooperation between the museums.
