European technological education model. SIUT establishes partnership with EUt+

Humankind today faces unprecedented challenges: climate change, overexploitation of resources, the social consequences of the rapidly evolving digital age… Experience has shown that the most effective solutions to these challenges are inextricably linked to technology. And implementing technological solutions begins with education and science, with the training of new generations of technologists. To this specific end, Europe has seen the creation of the European University of Technology (EUt+), an alliance of nine leading technological universities across the continent, united in a shared mission: to establish technology as a key driver in building an inclusive and sustainable future, and to pioneer a new European model of education. EUt+ comprises: Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences (Germany), University of Technology of Troyes (France), Technical University of Sofia (Bulgaria), Cyprus University of Technology (Cyprus), Technological University Dublin (Ireland), Technical University of Cluj-Napoca (Romania), Polytechnic University of Cartagena (Spain), University of Cassino and Southern Lazio (Italy), and Riga Technical University (Latvia).

On May 10, 2024, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between Samarkand International University of Technology (SIUT) and the European University of Technology (EUt+). The MoU was signed by Prof. Yusuf Abdullaev, Rector of SIUT, and Prof. Vasile Țopa, Rector of the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca (Romania), as an official representative of EUt+.

The parties discussed potential collaborations in academic and scientific projects: exchange of faculty, research staff, and other academic or administrative personnel; implementation of joint research projects; organization of guest lectures, scientific symposia, and conferences; exchange of academic information and materials; development and delivery of education programs and online learning for a global audience.

The partnership between SIUT and EUt+ marks a significant step in the transformation of technological education. This collaboration creates a wide range of opportunities for academic and scientific cooperation, fostering a new generation of highly skilled engineers and technologists.
