“2+2” Program Conference with the students of Mechanical Engineering faculty took place on March 18, 2021, at Turin Polytechnic University in Tashkent. The Conference was dedicated to “2+2” Program run between TTPU and Pittsburg State University (PSU), Kansas, USA. It was organized by the International Relations Department (IRD) and coordinated by the Department for Spiritual and Educational work with youth.
The new program will allow TTPU students transfer their credit hours and continue their studies at PSU. Moreover, by the end of the study, they will have a splendid opportunity to legally stay and work in the United States of America for 3 more years for being eligible for the Optional Period of Training since the Mechanical Engineering faculty is the part of the U.S. STEM program. They can also use this period for travel, research or apply for Master’s programs.
During the Conference, students were provided with some introductory information about Pittsburg State University such as basic admission requirements (language proficiency, academic ranking and a list of required documents), tuition fees, advantages, etc.
At the second part of the Conference, a number of questions related to the program were discussed. In particular, IRD representative Jamshid Yakhshilikov answered the questions from TTPU students and gave some detailed information regarding the program.
Khasan Khankeldiyev, Head of International Relations Department, said that the PSU Program is a unique opportunity for TTPU students to expand their knowledge and contribute to the development of mechanical engineering in Uzbekistan in the long term.
The project was developed based on the Memorandum of Understanding signed between Pittsburg State University and Turin Polytechnic University in Tashkent in 2018.
