Profile

As a state university for scientific teaching and research, GMIT provides a pioneering model for the reform of university education in Mongolia. We are training a new generation of engineers and technology experts in the Asian region. 

Based on an agreement between the Mongolian and German government which was signed in October 2011 by Mongolian President Tsakhjagiin Elbegdorj and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the German-Mongolian Institute for Resources and Technology (GMIT) was established in 2013 as a Mongolian state university with the objective to promote scientific teaching and research in the mineral resource sector and downstream industries, thus responding to global economic, environmental and social challenges and a need for specialized workforce in Mongolia alike.

GMIT strives to become a leading university of technology in Mongolia and the Asian region, thus defining the highest standards in education, research and innovation. We distinguished by our strong practice-orientation. We aim to transfer international expertise and cutting-edge standards to Mongolia in support of sustainable economic growth as well as to educate highly qualified, socially responsible, internationally recognized and creatively working engineers. 

Practice-orientation of education and research, the promotion of professional and personal development of its students, the international character of the university as well as its adherence to European quality standards in education and research are further essential characteristics of GMIT. 

We respond to both private and public sector needs in the mineral resources sector and downstream industries. We are helping to train a specialized workforce, and will contribute to increasing levels of value addition taking place within Mongolia. The guiding principles of GMIT include the protection of the environment, and social and economic sustainability.

The development of GMIT and its cooperation with German universities is supported by the Mongolian Ministry of Education and Sciences and the Federal Government of Germany. The German contribution to GMIT is implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
