Considered Proposals for the Development of Engineering Education

UZA News

President Shavkat Mirziyoyev made a visit to the Inno Technopark located in the Almazar district of Tashkent. The technopark was established three years ago with the aim of developing innovative ideas and inventions in various industrial sectors. In order to train young individuals in modern professions, the technopark has established partnerships with higher education institutions. Every year, workshops and practical classes are held with the participation of approximately 15,000 students. This is just one example of the increasing number of innovation centers in Uzbekistan, as the country continues to develop in industries such as industry, energy, and information technology, requiring engineers and technicians with up-to-date knowledge and qualifications.

During his visit, the President was presented with the activities of higher engineering schools at various universities, including Tashkent State Technical University, Bukhara Engineering and Technological Institute, Tashkent State Transport University, Fergana Polytechnic Institute, Tashkent University of Architecture and Civil Engineering, and Tashkent University of Information Technology. These schools were established in accordance with the Resolution of the President of the Republic of Uzbekistan on February 2, 2024, which aims to improve the organizational and managerial activities of higher education institutions that train personnel in the engineering and technical sphere. The existing curricula are being studied and changed to align with modern technologies and employer requirements.

In the first stage, ten higher education institutions will open higher engineering schools, with a supervisory board consisting of both scientists and representatives from partner enterprises. These schools will offer two-year master’s degree programs, with candidates being selected based on orders from manufacturers. In the first year, students will work on designing new products based on orders from enterprises, conduct scientific research, and study in advanced modular programs. In the second year, they will test technological processes at enterprises related to creating experimental design samples of new products.

During his visit, the President also emphasized the importance of practical applicability and effectiveness of scientific research in higher education institutions. It was noted that the attention given to the education system should be reflected in the achievements of scientific research. The President also had the opportunity to see various inventions and advanced developments by researchers, including energy-efficient devices, a cooling system for transformers, chemical reagents for the oil and gas industry, modern approaches in construction and road construction, engineering projects for hydraulic structures, and modern solutions in information technology.
