LETI signs Cooperation Agreement with Chinese City of Mianyang

An agreement was signed in St. Petersburg between LETI and the government of Mianyang (China). It envisages the creation of joint educational programs and research, as well as attracting new students. The agreement was signed by Vladimir Kutuzov, President of LETI.

The signing of the agreement was the result of a visit to China in mid-June by Anastasia Minina, Vice-Rector for International Affairs of LETI, and Ivan Kholod, Dean of the Faculty of Computer Science and Technologies of LETI.

During the meetings in China, the parties agreed to cooperate in career guidance for students, the development of priority areas, and the establishment of Russian language centers in Mianyang. Representatives of the city administration noted that they are interested in cooperation in electronics and microelectronics, communication technologies and systems, artificial intelligence and computer science, biomedicine, electric power engineering, and automated control systems.

A key point of interaction was joint programs in computer science and the new generation of an electronic component base with the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, located in Chengdu, the capital of the region. During the visit, LETI representatives held meetings with scientific groups involved in computer science at Chengdu university and discussed possible joint research.

“LETI is interested in developing cooperation with China. The university faces the task of increasing the number of students, so the issue of such educational interaction, where we talk about opening joint educational programs and institutes, is of great interest to us. This is a model of a distributed university with partners in different countries, such as Egypt, Malaysia, China, Vietnam, and others. It allows us, without increasing the physical space of our campus in St. Petersburg, to increase the number of students using the infrastructure of partner universities in other countries”.

LETI already has extensive experience in close cooperation with regional authorities – the First Electrotechnical trains personnel to meet the needs of Leningrad Region enterprises, carries out scientific projects, develops educational programs, and provides career guidance in the interests of the regional government. These developments will be used in cooperation with Mianyang.
