Ural Federal University: Educational Achievements Implemented by Mongolia’s Largest Enterprise

The principles of corporate training management based on the system created at the Ural Federal University are to be implemented at the Mongolian Erdenet Ore Mining and Processing Plant, just like the technologies developed by the university’s scientists; recently a delegation from the Ural Federal University arrived at one of the largest mining companies in Asia.

“We offer our Mongolian partners our advanced developments in both education and research. Considering the transformation of a number of technological processes at the company and the mastering of distance learning for employees and students of the local branch of the Mongolian University of Science and Technology, I am sure that they will be in demand. It is worth bearing in mind that we already have years of successful cooperation,” said Sergey Kortov, First Vice-Rector of the Ural Federal University.

Taking into account the changes in the production structure, the ore mining and processing plant may be interested in the technology of copper ore leaching created at the university, says Sergey Mamyachenkov, Head of the Department of Non-Ferrous Metallurgy at UrFU. Together with his colleagues from the Institute of New Materials and Technologies of UrFU he presented a number of proposals from the university, which he plans to discuss in detail this week with the Head of the Production Department, the Head of the Beneficiation Plant and other representatives of the management.

“Of course, we are interested in further cooperation with one of Russia’s leading universities. Now that we have recovered from the consequences of the two years of the pandemic, it is worth talking about expanding cooperation. In particular, we are interested in having the students we send to Ekaterinburg for studies from the company, to undergo practical training in the mining industry,” emphasizes Khokhar Badamsuren, General Director of Erdenet Ore Mining and Processing Plant.

The Ural Federal University considers excellent knowledge of the Russian language among Mongolian students to be the key to a successful introduction to Russian companies. Yana Vysotskaya, Director of the Division of International Educational Programs, talked about the proposals in this area: the university intends to combine distance technologies and practical training.

The UrFU delegation’s visit to Erdenet began with a meeting with the alumni working at the ore mining and processing plant. Aleksandr Ponomarev, Executive Director of the UrFU Alumni Association, not only introduced the Mining and Processing Division’s plans, but also answered the employees’ questions and invited them to cooperate on projects aimed at promoting the Russian language and culture in Mongolia, as well as strengthening ties in the field of science and education.
