Conference on “2 + 2” program of Turin Polytechnic University in Tashkent and Pittsburg State University

Turin Polytechnic University in Tashkent held a conference with students of Mechanical Engineering faculty which was dedicated to the “2 + 2” program signed between Turin Polytechnic University in Tashkent (TTPU) and Pittsburg State University (PSU), Kansas, USA.

The new program allows TTPU students to transfer their credit hours accumulated during 2 academic years to PSU and continue their studies there. In addition, as the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering is a part of the U.S. STEM program, students will have an opportunity to study and work legally in the United States of America for three years after graduation for being eligible for the Optional Period of Training. They can also use this period to travel, do research, or continue their studies in Master’s programs.

During the conference, students were given some important information about Pittsburg State University and answers to all their questions.

Khasan Khankeldiyev, Head of the International Relations Department, noted that the PSU program is a unique opportunity for TTPU students to expand their knowledge and contribute to the development of 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.
