We are striving to improve the human resources of the region, develop its intellectual capital, and make the region advance both nationally and internationally. The University prioritizes the development of medical technology, hard sciences and IT, and that it should receive public commendation for its work in this sphere is all the more valuable. As for the brand, this victory belongs to the entire University, to all the academics and innovators working with the most advanced contemporary technology”.
