The SCMS Group of Educational Institutions signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the People’s Friendship University, formerly Patrice Lumumba University in Russia, for academic collaboration for a wide range of programmes.

As per the agreement, students of SCMS can go to Russia and join the University for one more year of study in engineering and obtain a BTech Degree of the PFU in addition to the BTech they have already secured from SCMS. Engineering is a five-year programme in Russia.

Exchange of students and faculty is also envisaged under the agreement. The dual BTech from India and Russia will provide wide range of opportunities for jobs in Russia where technically qualified professionals are needed in large numbers.

As a policy, the Russian Government welcomes technically-qualified professionals from India, said Nikolay Kislyy, Dean of the University, after signing the agreement.

He said  the University and SCMS can redesign the syllabus and course of study to suit the requirements of the Russian industries once this agreement becomes operational.
