Therefore, we are young universities and we still have everything ahead! Although over the last 100 years we have received many awards, we have trained thousands of highly qualified specialists who at the moment occupy high positions in companies and define our industrial policy. Whatever changes in our life, our universities will always remain the foundation of the Russian economy. To train specialists for metallurgy, geological prospecting and oil industry is our honorable duty. My congratulations, dear friends! "- said the Rector of Gubkin University Viktor Martynov.
