International Dual Degree Programs

SGUGiT pays great attention to the development of international relations in the field of spaecialists training.

The University is actively cooperating with Michigan Technological University (USA), Delft University of Technology (Netherlands), University of Stuttgart (Germany), universities of Kazakhstan in the context of joint educational programs development.

Since 2013, the university has launched a program of dual master's degree in the field of cadastre, geodesy and remote sensing in conjunction with Michigan Technological University (MichTech) and double master's degree program in the field of geodesy withEast Kazakhstan State Technical University n.a. D.Serikbaev (EKSTU).

Academic and student exchange has been successfully carried out within the framework of bilateral agreements between SSUGiT and its partners: MichTech, EKSTU, Mongolian State University of Science and Technology (MSUST) and Mongolian State Agricultural University (MSAU). Every year the University receives and sends to the universities-partners of Kazakhstan and Mongolia from 12 to 15 students. Thus within the framework of agreements with MSAU and MSUST teachers from these universities regularly come to SGUGiT for training, SGUGiT organizes the exchange summer training practice for the students of 2-3 courses of specialty "Geodesy". International exchange educational practice in geodesy is organized in the same way with the East Kazakhstan State Technical University n.a. D.Serikbaev.

Subject to successful training and a proper level of English or German languages students of SGUGiT have the opportunity to undergo practical training in Germany (with partial refund of expenses).

Within the framework of signed agreements on academic cooperation with the University of Haifa and the Wuhan University from 2011 to 2013 SSUGiT developed 2 textbooks for the teaching of such subjects as "Interferometry" and "GNSS technology" in English. It is planned to continue further development of researches in this area, joint development and publication of new educational and scientific material, scientific conferences and summer schools for students.

The main activities in cooperation with Michigan Technological University are:
- academic mobility;
- conducting annual seminars in the field of innovative approaches in teaching;
- joint scientific guidance of master's thesises by professors of the partners universities;
- Masters courses designed for foreign students;
- exchange of teaching staff in assessment of joint master's courses in the host university.

SSUGiT carries out works on implementation of joint researches as well as advice and guidance of masters dissertations on topics selected from the approved list in collaboration with the Delft University of Technology.

Since 2014, according to the agreement on academic cooperation concluded between SSUGiT and Stuttgart University, a new project was launched - conducting the exchange international conferences of post-graduate students on the topic "The integration of observational data on marks and for objects in general with geodesic structures and monitoring of natural objects." The first international conference was held on the basis of SSUGiT in April 14-15, 2014.

In November 2013 the University for the first time in the history of the SFO (with appropriate support from the German government and the private sector) successfully held a bilateral Russian-German symposium dedicated to the monitoring and development of urban infrastructure. In the following the results of the project were continued in the framework of the international exhibition and scientific congress "GEO-Siberia Interexpo".

SSUGiT takes an active part in the organization of scientific and educational training for Masters of higher educational institutions of Kazakhstan. In 2013 in this area three agreements on scientific and academic cooperation were signed.

Students of SGUGiT may receive scholarships for studying abroad at one of the existing programs of Erasmus Mundus (BA, MA or PhD).

SGUGiT has inter-university agreements with several European partner universities:
- University of Stuttgart, Germany
- University of Applied Sciences in Karlsruhe, Germany
- Roskilde University, Denmark
- Czech Technical University, Czech Republic

SSUGiT students can apply for a grant to the short-term 'credit' mobility program (maximum period of the trip - 12 months), due to which they can continue their education in the partner university. Marks obtained by students ('credits') will be recognized by SSUGiT upon their return and taken into account in the final results.

Another program, DAAD, provides educational and scientific grants to students of 2-penultimate year and the university staff:
- scholarships for students;
- scholarships for post-graduate students and young scientists;
- scholarships for graduates seeking post-graduate education in Germany.
