On 15-30 January 2020, students of the Military Department of the D. Serikbayev EKSTU - Bakhytbek Almas, Mukhamedsadykov Zhandos, Suleimenov Erlan and Toktamysov Alisher - and the Head of the Military Department Mantsurov Oleg Aleksandrovich and Head of the General Training Cycle Eshonkulov Bakhtiyor Hatammovich visited the Republic of India in the framework of the Youth Exchange Programme.
The trip took place at the invitation of the Government of India, in honor of the celebration of the Republic Day of India. Besides Kazakhstan, cadets from ten countries participated in the program - Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Singapore, Vietnam, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Maldives and Sri Lanka.
During the visit, students underwent training, exchanged experiences with cadets from different countries, took part in a parade dedicated to the Republic Day of India, and also visited national museums and attractions of cities such as Delhi, Agra and Jaipur. The most striking impression was a visit to one of the seven wonders of the world - the Taj Mahal mausoleum.
The event included formal meetings with the senior leadership of the Republic of India - President Ram Nath Kovindom, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Minister of Defense Razhnath Singh.
It should be noted that such visits are important for strengthening friendship between our peoples, improving the image of our university, the Armed Forces and the country as a whole.
Students of the Military Department express their gratitude to the Rector of the EKSTU Shaimardanov Zhassulan Kudaibergenovich for the comprehensive support and assistance in organizing the trip to the Republic of India.
