APAIE-2018 Conference and Exhibition of the Asia-Pacific Association for International Education started on March 25th and was attended by SUSU representatives.
On the first day, the university delegation, which included Head of the International Affairs Division Olga Yaroshenko and Head of the Center of International Academic Programs of ILIC Tatyana Vasilyeva, held negotiations and meetings with fifteen universities. A constructive talk was also held with Vice President of the major university in the Philippines, De La Salle University, Mrs. Laurene Garcia about student exchange in the fields of IT and linguistics, as well as research in linguistics.
Many leading universities such as the National Energy University of Malaysia and National Taiwan University, as well as the Ministry of Education of Philippines were interested in the possibility of taking part in the international conference in SUSU on “green” energy generation, which will be held October 2018.
Double-Degree and academic mobility educational programs were discussed with National Taiwan University (Regional Studies, Linguistics, Electrical Power Engineering), State University of Malaysia (Economics), National University of Malaysia (Mechatronics and Robotics), Czech Technical University in Prague (Architecture), and Fontes School of Technology and Logistics (Management).
Issues on research in semiconductor materials for solar batters, and those related to smart power supply networks can become possible fields of joint research with the Energy University of Malaysia. The question that excited most interest, especially in such universities as Sofia University in Tokyo, Jagiellonian University of Poland, and National Energy University of Malaysia, was participation in summer schools.
The possibility of including internship programs in the joint Double-Degree program with Clark University (USA) was discussed with the American Academic Internship Council. In addition, a memorandum was signed on partnership with Dankook University, National Taiwan University, School of Logistics in the Netherlands, and National Energy University of Malaysia.
Representatives of THE Agency, who visited our university in December and offered consultations on entering the ranking system, also visited the SUSU stand on the first day of the conference and discussed prospects of future cooperation.
