List of partner universities KSTU Erasmus plus program:
Erasmus+ is a program of the European Union (EU) in the field of education, training, youth and sport for the period 2014-2020. This program builds on the achievements of more than 25 years of experience of European programs in the field of education, training and youth, covering the areas of data both within Europe and in international cooperation.
Erasmus + aims to move beyond these programs, through the development of synergies and mutual enrichment in various fields of education, training and youth, eliminating the artificial boundaries between different activities and project formats, encouraging new ideas, recruiting new members of the labor market and civil society and encouraging new forms of cooperation. Erasmus + aims to become a more effective tool to address real needs in terms of the development of human and social capital in Europe and beyond.
For this reason, all actions and activities supported under the program, should be carried out with the help of the brand “Erasmus +”. However, to assist participants and beneficiaries of the former programs to understand the program Erasmus +, for the purpose of communication and dissemination, the following names can be used for the actions aimed at a specific sector, in addition to the common name “Erasmus +”.
Erasmus + replaces seven programs for one: it combines the following programs: 1) LLP program Lifelong Learning (Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, the Comenius and Grundtvig), 2) Youth in Action, and five international cooperation programs: 1.Erasmus Mundus, 2.Tempus, 3.Alfa, 4. Edulink, 5.Program cooperation with industrialized countries.
Important features of the program Erasmus +:
- Recognition and validation of skills and qualifications
- Distribution and use of project results
- Open access to educational materials, documents and media created within the framework of the Erasmus +
- The international dimension
- Equality and fairness
- Protection and safety of participants
Indicative Program budget for 7 years (2014-2020) is 14,774 billion Euros. For more information in English, please click here: http://ec.europa.eu/budget/documents/budget_current_year_en.htm
The main actions that mutually reinforce and complement each other:
- Learning mobility of individuals:
Training opportunities for individuals, both within the EU and beyond, including: study and training, training, and professional development and informal youth activities, such as volunteering. Europeans will be able to study, train or teach at universities around the world, and non-European students and staff will have more opportunities to learn, teach and study in Europe. Expansion of the program outside of the EU will increase the attractiveness of European higher education as well as support the development of higher education in other countries.
1.1 Mobility through degree – through joint masters courses (joint PhD turn into Marie Curie Action, Managed by EACEA);
1.2 Mobility through loans – mutual agreements between universities (Managed by National Agencies.).
- Improving potentiality in higher education
For higher education, the emphasis will be on improving potentiality, focusing on neighboring countries, as well as the strategic partnership developed and emerging economies. It will be aimed at improving the quality, relevance and management of higher education.
2.1 Joint projects will be based on multilateral partnerships between higher education institutions from the EU and neighboring countries (modernization of the curriculum, staff training, advanced education, management, etc.) with built-in mobility. Based on the integration of Tempus and Erasmus Mundus (Action 2)
2.2 Capacity building partnerships will include universities from Asia, Latin America and Africa (based on the experience of the Alpha and Edulink).

SUMMER SCHOOL IN KSTU
Summer School “WEWEK-2016”
August 1, 2016, 24 people came from Germany to Kyrgyzstan, from different universities of Germany, to participate in the summer school. The official opening ceremony of the summer school was held at the KSTU after I. Razzakov.
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sarto T.E, presented himself with the welcoming speech, addressed to young German guests, wishing them success in their study and hopes that they enjoy their time in Kyrgyz land. From the German side, the representative of the German Embassy of Kyrgyz Republic, Mr. Wolfgang Eminger, made a speech along with representatives of the German GIZ program. This year, well wishes were made by the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic, represented by Deputy Prime Minister for Economy and Investments of the Kyrgyz Republic, Mr. Diehl VI
This summer school, on the basis of KSTU for students in both countries, was organized with the support of DAAD Foundation and the Berlin Technical Institute after Boit, for the fourth consecutive year. Every year it is attended by 5 Kyrgyz and more than 20 German students. The latter had a hard competitive selection in the city of Bonn. The main goal of this project is to pass practical training to the students, in Toktogul, Kurpsai HPP and Kambar-Ata 2, as well as in small hydropower plants in Kyrgyzstan.
In addition, students from Germany have the opportunity, in an intensive way, to learn the Russian language. Kyrgyz students can consolidate their German language skills, communicating daily with German students, to better master the technical terminology by practicing.

For example, in 2015, 64 German students applied for 12 seats allocated by DAAD and 80 students applied for 6 opening through the Berlin Technical Institute after Boit. The selection process proved very difficult by the commission, which consisted of representatives of the German universities and KSTU.

One of the main goals through inter-university cooperation is the development and implementation of joint programs aimed at providing students with internship opportunities in foreign universities, and to have the opportunity to receive two diplomas, both at KSTU and the foreign partner university.
KSTU is a member of the Russian Kyrgyz Consortium of Technical Universities (RKKTU), the Association of Asian universities, and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO). Under the agreement, RKKTU (which includes the 21 higher education institutions of Russia and the 6 universities of Kyrgyzstan) and KSTU made an agreement of joint undergraduate programs on the 2 plus 2, with such universities as:

Kyrgyz State Technical University is part of the “SCO” Universities, which includes universities from Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, and is a major institution of higher education for the implementation of joint master’s programs in “Energy”. In addition to cooperation in the SCO, KSTU has cooperation agreements with some universities of China. Within the framework of this cooperation the university annually sends students to continue their education in the master’s degree program, in universities such as the Harbin Institute of Technology, University Lanchzhounsky transport and Lyaonninskiyneftyanym University of Chemical Technology, through Chinese government scholarships. The university, in the joint project with the Xinjiang Academy of Agricultural Sciences, and with the assistance of the Academy of Science and Technology, opened the Scientific and Technical Information Center.
Close cooperation has been established with several universities and organizations in Germany. In 2001, an agreement was signed between the Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany and the President of the Kyrgyz Republic on the opening of a joint facility, now the Kyrgyz-German Technical Institute, founded by KSTU after Razzakov and Berlin Technical University after Boit. The Institute is comprised of three departments: “Telematics”, “Logistics” and “Mechanics and Industrial Engineering.” To date, about 500 students are enrolled in the institute. The direction of “Logistics” and “Telematics” were created with the assistance of technical universities of Vildau, Cologne and Brandenburg. Classes are conducted in German and Russian languages. Every year, more than 30 students participate in summer schools in universities and industrial companies in Germany. KSTU teachers leading classes at the Institute, also have the opportunity to train in German universities. The funding institution involves German partners through the DAAD.
