TOMSK, Dec 10 – RIA Tomsk. A master's degree program
in English in architecture will open at Tomsk State University of Architecture and Building (TSUAB) in 2020, the rector of the university
Victor Vlasov told reporters on Tuesday.
"In 2020 we will open a master's degree program in architecture in
English. Before that, there were no English-language programs at the
university. It has already been formed, teachers are being retrained now
... Perhaps we will tighten up someone from abroad. I think that due to
this program the number of students from abroad, including from Europe,
will increase", – he said at the press conference in the RIA Tomsk
According to him, there are no state-funded places provided for this
program in 2020. At the moment students from China, Mongolia, Turkey,
Africa, Algeria and Egypt are studying at the university.
The rector of TSUAB added that in 2019 the university received
support from the Ministry of Education of China to open a network
program with the Xinjiang Agricultural University in the direction of
"Construction", the profile "Industrial and civil construction".
"90 students from China have been enrolled in this program. They will
study in China for three years, and last year they will continue their
studies at TSUAB. Thus, they will receive diplomas of two universities
at once", – Vlasov specified.
