Russian and foreign National Nuclear Research University (MEPhI) graduates were awarded higher education diplomas on 12 March.
74 out of 173 graduates are from Russia, 62 from Vietnam, 35 from Turkey, and two from Mongolia. It is the first time that students from Turkey and Mongolia have graduated from MEPhI. All Turkish graduates will be employed at the Akkuyu NPP to be built by Rosatom in the Mersin Province (Turkey).
Rosatom’s Alexey Likhachev attended the diploma awards ceremony. “Now you have an opportunity to grow professionally because the education you received is rightfully considered one of the best in the world, and the nuclear industry and science are developing rapidly both in Russia and abroad. I am sure that you will find your place in life,” he said in his address to the graduates.
MEPhI Rector Mikhail Strikhanov, Kaluga Region Governor Anatoly Artamonov, and ambassadors of Turkey, Mongolia, Vietnam, Jordan and Zambia to Russia also attended the ceremony.
Established in 1942, the National Nuclear Research University (MEPhI) is a ‘core’ university of Rosatom. It has gained the reputation of a prestigious technical university both nationally and internationally.
