The geography of foreign offices of the International Competence Centre for Mining Engineering Education under the auspices of UNESCO is becoming broader and broader. After the Chinese University of Mining and Technology, the National Polytechnic University of Armenia has got the same status.
The cooperation agreement was signed on Friday, July 10, by Vladimir Litvinenko, Chairman of the Governing Board of the UNESCO Competence Centre, and Ruben Aghgashyan, Acting Rector of Yerevan University. They qualified the document as “an instrument that will only work if it falls into the hands of a master”. And they expressed confidence that the professionalism inherent in both sides will allow achieving the stated goals through more active integration into the international scientific and educational space.
Vladimir Litvinenko reminded that the two states were formed in the same ideological system, went through serious trials, and together won the Great Patriotic War. It means that the development of partnership relations between the Russian and Armenian higher schools is quite a logical step, which all participants of the association can benefit from.
