The successful cooperation between Izhevsk State Technical University (IZsGTU) and the University of Pécs (PTE) dates back to 1998, in which the initiator Rector Boris Yakimovich played an important role.
Each year, IZSGTU and the Student Council of the University of Pécs organize and support student cultural exchange programs, which enable students of the partner universities to become acquainted with the education system of the partner universities, and of course the cultural life of Izhevsk and Pécs. Within the framework of the program, the two institutions host 10-10 students each year from the partner institution.
The teacher exchange program is a significant part of the cooperation where our teachers hold professional lectures for students at each other's institutions, mainly in the fields of architecture and construction.
Thanks to scientific cooperation, Zoltán Orbán, lecturer of the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, has prepared and successfully defended his PhD thesis at the Technical University of Izsevsk, led by Professor Boris Yakimovich.
Teachers from both universities regularly attend joint conferences, so Prof. Yakimovics was an invited lecturer at the Jubilee Rector's Conference entitled "Expanding Europe" organized by the University of Pécs in October 2010.
The mechanical student team of the Faculty of Engineering participated in the first Student International Olympiad in Mechanism and Machine Science competition, which was organized by IZsGTU.
