The Ufa University of Science and Technology was created on the basis of two large universities.
A new university has appeared in Russia – the Ufa University of Science and Technology. It was created on the basis of two large universities – Bashkir State University and Ufa State Technical Aviation University. Dmitry Afanasiev, Deputy Minister of Science and Higher Education, announced the official merger of the two institutions of higher education. The corresponding order to merge the two universities has already been signed by the head of the Ministry of Education and Science Valery Falkov.
“Minister of Science and Higher Education Valery Nikolayevich Falkov signed an order to create a new university — the Ufa University of Science and Technology based on the merger of two powerful interesting educational organizations — the State University and the Aviation University,” Afanasyev said.
He noted that the initiative to merge the two universities came from the leadership of the Republic of Bashkortostan. The authorities considered that the potential of two large universities would allow the region to become one of the scientific and educational capitals of Russia.
The head of the republic, Radiy Khabirov, said that the decision to merge the two universities was not easy. He emphasized that the unified university is being created “not to kill something or make it worse”, but to make it “an order of magnitude higher”.
“The merger of the two universities will lead to the fact that in our republic and in Russia there will be a new, powerful, serious core of scientific thought, educational progress and technologies,” he said.
Earlier it was reported that a new institution of higher education appeared in Moscow. The Central Music School (TsMSh) received the status of a higher educational institution and a license for higher education. The school will train musicians in the specialty “The Art of Concert Performance” (higher education – specialty)”.
“Now we have another music university in our country. Already in 2023, teachers from the Central Music School and visiting professors will begin teaching the first students in higher education programs in all four cities,” said Olga Yarilova, Deputy Minister of Culture.
