TU Bergakademie Freiberg plans new double diploma with Mongolian university

Experiments on processing machines.
On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Mongolian University of Science and Technology (MUST), it signed a joint declaration with the TU Bergakademie Freiberg to introduce a further joint study course in the field of building materials.

The course initially provides a three-year training at MUST with in-depth German language instruction and adaptation of the basic engineering training to the Freiberg standard. The selected students then transfer to the TU Bergakademie Freiberg to complete their studies with a double diploma.

Dr. Kathrin Häußler from the local network "House of the little researchers" at the TU Bergakademie Freiberg informed within the framework of a University Presidents Council about the successful work of the network, the advantages of the early introduction of children to the technical sciences as well as about current trends in teaching and research.

The TU Bergakademie Freiberg cooperates with Mongolian partners not only in education. Joint research projects with the Mongolian Association of Conditioners are also planned. Especially in the processing and use of coal, which provides a large part of the heat, there is a considerable need for research, since air pollution from dust and combustion gases, e.g. in Ulan Bator, is still high. The TU Bergakademie Freiberg has internationally sought-after knowledge on this subject.

Founded in 1959, MUST is one of Mongolia's best universities. Partnership agreements have existed with the TU Bergakademie Freiberg since 1993. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of MUST, a five-member delegation from the TU Bergakademie Freiberg travelled to the celebrations from 14 to 18 October. During their visit, the Freiberg delegation gave lectures on digitisation, processing and building materials at the MUST.
