Mongolia’s Energy sector development stages are the period of development until the 1990s, when the country’s industrialization was fully laid, when the energy system was established, and the need for electricity and heat increased, and, the period of technology and techniques development.
In the past, Mongolia’s fuel and energy base was established and a large number of mines were put into use, and the energy sector based on coal was developing. Today, technical and technological progress in the era of the 4th industrial revolution has introduced new types of energy sources along with coal sources. For example, renewable energy sources such as wind and solar energy, geothermal heat, and water energy are widely introduced, and new technical equipment, digital technology, and internet-based smart energy systems are introduced in all fields of production, transmission, distribution, and consumption, and the knowledge-based economy has begun. Government is leading. Similarly, the origin and development of our country’s transport industry can be seen in this way. Along with the modernization of its rolling stock, the “thousand road” covering the entire vast territory of Mongolia was built, and transportation management moved to a completely new level. Along with this, the needs and demands of the 21st century specialists who meet the current requirements of the infrastructure development of the energy and transportation sectors and the globalization environment, and the requirements for the quality of engineering education have been increasing.
The School of Energy and Transportation prepares national engineering and technical specialists through a graded course for bachelor, master, and doctorate degrees that is close to the common programs of reputable institutes oversees.
Today’s engineers should not only work based on the knowledge gained through classroom training, but they should develop themselves and acquire the ability to work creatively in step with the rapidly changing times. The 60th anniversary of Mongolia’s domestic training of engineering and technical personnel has just passed, and in the last 30 years, many public and private schools have been working side by side to train a new generation of highly educated specialists in the country’s energy, transportation and other sectors.
UTIS has been training specialists in this direction for 10 years, and many engineers who graduated from our school are successfully working in power plants, networks, public and private enterprises, and transport companies.
As a student studying at the school, we will provide you with a comfortable learning environment, and our professors will be a constant helper in your learning and will make every effort to acquire and master new knowledge. I wish you all always to remember that learning is a collaboration that incorporates the results of the student’s own efforts, creative work, and the attention and assistance of teachers.
Let’s pray that science and knowledge will continue to fall, and the development of our country will spread more and more. Thank you all.
