Tornike Lipartia, Executive Director of RMG, held an introductory meeting with the newly elected rector of Georgia Technical University, Davit Gurgenidze.
The parties discussed the results of 3 years of cooperation and talked about future plans, which envisages offering various programs for students and supporting the Technical University of Georgia.
Motivated and high-achieving students selected from the Faculty of Mining and Geology have the opportunity to become participants of RMG Summer School. The project entails a one-month paid internship, after which the best students are given a real chance to be employed in the company.
In 2019, the company started working with GTU on the dual educational project “Individual development plan”, which provides the creation of individual programs for the development of their competencies for each participant involved in the project.
RMG has about 30 scholarship holders, more than 120 young people participated in the summer school in 2019-2020. We want future miners, geologists, chemists and students of other related specialties to engage in practical activities right after starting their studies. I think this will help them set the right priorities and develop into professionals. For our part, we are ready to offer all motivated young people who meet international standards a career development-oriented and stable working environment in our companies.”

According to the rector of the Technical University of Georgia, the long-term mutual cooperation between the university and RMG contributes to the popularization of the field, increases motivation among students and formation and development of professional skills.
“The university thanks the company for fruitful cooperation and professional development of successful students. Based on the updated memorandum between the university and the company, mutual cooperation will be deepened in the future and will acquire a wider scope, which will be another step forward for the development of our country’s economy and the mining industry itself. In the near future, we plan to visit the company together with the students, get to know the production on the spot, and together with them plan events aimed at popularizing the field. The fact that RMG’s management expressed their desire to participate in the events planned for the 100th anniversary of the Technical University of Georgia is also gratifying.
