The functions of the leaders of this package include: coordination of work on the development of new modules and disciplines for curricula in participating universities, advanced training of teaching staff of participating universities in European universities with the invitation of international experts, publication of methodological textbooks for new modules, creation networks of resource scientific and educational centers in universities of Russia, Armenia and Iran and monitoring of the work of international student teams during the implementation of the project.

In the first half of the workshop the KSUAE team outlined the goals and objectives of this work package, focusing on the importance of comparing the tasks with the qualifications and potential of the project team members, as well as calculating the administrative and resource support of the project activities. In the second part of the workshop, the KSUAE team  together with Professor A.

6th Graduation ceremony of the dual degree programme KSUAE-UEL


Today at our University an official graduation ceremony was held for the last year 24 graduates of the British programme implemented at KSUAE jointly with the University of East London (UK) in the areas of Architecture, Civil Engineering and Construction Management. 60% of the students received First Class Honors degrees from the University of East London on the basis of examinations for the entire period of their study.

One of the main advantages of the programme is the triple system of testing students' knowledge. It includes, along with the internal system of KSUAE, a system for assessment by external, independent experts of the British university and an internal system of the UEL.

The Rector of KSUAE, prof. Rashit Nizamov wished the students success in building their future careers, and also emphasized the uniqueness of the programme that allows to train in-demand specialists, professionals in the specified areas with multilingual and intercultural competencies. Joint degree students have a key advantage over their peers in regular programs with one degree, as they have more ample opportunities for the young professional. Today, degrees of English educational institutions are valued all over the world. Universities in England received the highest scores in terms of employability.

Congratulations to the guys, we wish them continued success!

We also express our deep gratitude to the teaching staff of KSUAE involved in the implementation of the programme and made a huge contribution to the success of the graduation of this cohort of students!

Students of our British degree programme took an international online course on the "green" building standards BREEAM AG


Screenshot 20210519 124221 ZoomNine students of the dual degree programme KSUAE-UEL completed an international online BREEAM Approved Graduate (AG) course, the program of additional professional education on the  the "green" building standard. This course has become possible and accessible to our students thanks to cooperation with the Moscow University MGSU.

Students of civil engineering and architecture courses were selected, those ones who are interested in working with green building standards. The course was developed by the MGSU in cooperation with the Russian Council for Green Building and the Academy of the Research Institute of Great Britain (BRE Academy).

Great Britain is one of the world leaders in green building. The BREEAM course was launched in the country in 1990 and is still very popular today. It is fully adapted for domestic higher educational institutions, taking into account the practice of green building in the Russian Federation.

The course consists of 20 academic hours with individual work, lectures, final essay and the test. The course was held on the platform of the BRE Academy company. Students who successfully complete the BREEAM Approved Graduate course were issued the international certificates from BRE Academy and the MGSU during the award ceremony that took place in May this year.

Here is a feedback of Denis Khrapal, a student of the dual degree programme KSUAE-UEL, who has completed the BREEAM course: “I took an online course in the field of green building related to BREEAM certification. Within the framework of this course, the relevance of ecological construction, the method of ecological assessment as the basis of sustainable development, the basic concepts of the method of ecological assessment BREEAM were described. For me, as an architectural design student, this course has highlighted the new facets of sustainable architecture and demonstrated the new opportunities associated with certification in green building. BRE Global provides students of construction universities with an excellent opportunity to reflect on and further develop "green building".
