Friends of GMIT
The “Friends of GMIT” was founded in 2015 to support and encourage the educational and scientific objectives of this young university and support their students to become empowered to meet the challenges of Mongolia’s economy and today’s society.
Promoting Engineering Excellence in Mongolia
Educating a new generation of engineers in Mongolia and strengthening applied research and development in close cooperation with Mongolia’s industry – these are the main aims of the German-Mongolian Institute for Resources and Technology (GMIT). The “Friends of GMIT” was founded in 2015 to support and encourage the educational and scientific objectives of this young university and support their students to become empowered to meet the challenges of Mongolia’s economy and today’s society. To achieve this, our association strives to generate additional funding for GMIT and establishes an opportunity for open dialogue with industry and civil society.
Boosting Young Talent
The “Friends of GMIT” grants scholarships for gifted students. In particular we focus on gifted students from middle class and poorer backgrounds. This financial support allows them to perform and develop without being burdened with financial stress.
Supporting Scientific Research
Applied research, innovation and successful technology transfer are all important for the Mongolian economy. We advance the careers of our scientists in GMIT by promoting research, congress and symposia participation.
Outstanding achievements of students and staff of GMIT should be acknowledged and honored. We do this to motivate others to give their best.
