"Our institute should become one of the leading ones," - Aydarkhan Zhusupbekovich said. - The specialty of Mechanical Engineering in all technical universities of the world is key, and it should be the basis of engineering specialties. To achieve this, we will have to change much in the structure of the Institute and the curricula of specialties, bring their names and content into line with accepted international norms. I would like to launch here a foreign system for the training of highly qualified personnel, based on the wide attraction of the best students, undergraduates and doctoral candidates to scientific research through the implementation of scientific projects. It will help us to attract talented and motivated students to the implementation of scientific projects. "
