Learning from each other - Multinational study project with US-American, German, and Mongolian students at GMIT

GMIT, 15.05.2018 The German-Mongolian Institute for Resources and Technology (GMIT) grants European Credit points to its students, based on international study programs in Engineering. Furthermore, GMIT students have the possibility to study in Germany – for some weeks up to 6 months.

Now, German and US students have travelled to Mongolia to join a study project encompassing Environmental Engineering, Raw Materials & Process Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering at GMIT.

The students are under the supervision of Professor Rebecca J. Pinkelman from South Dakota School of Mines & Technology (USA), Professor Manfred Hampe from Technische Universität Darmstadt (Germany), and six professors and scientists from GMIT (Mongolia).

The topic of the multinational study project is: Design of a Zero Water Discharge for the Ukhaa Khudag Mine, owned by the Mongolian Mining Corporation. “We divided the students into three groups, and each group represents students from the three continents and all disciplines. The students are asked to provide solutions and processes to this real-world problem, and they have to present their findings in front of the Mongolia Mining Cooperation management in Ulaanbaatar by this week”, said Professor Peter Vossen, Munkhjargal Chimeddorj, Professor Bayanmunkh Myagmarsuren (Raw Materials & Process Engineering), Professor Daniel Karte and Ariuntuya Tserendorj (Environmental Engineering) and Professor Odbileg Norovrinchen (Mechanical Engineering).

Beside lectures, workshops and presentations, the multinational study project aims for cultural exchange and joint field-trips as well.
