alumnae of RUT (MIIT)

Dear friends!

I am happy to be part of a long and glorious history of RUT (MIIT). I was an 80’s student, getting a de-gree in railway exploitation. My career started at a railway station and in the end I have completed the career ladder. I have also been working for some time in private sector. Whatever my job was, the knowledge and skills that I have obtained at RUT(MIIT) were indispensable. I am thankful for my destiny and I am proud to be an alumnus of such a prestigious institution.
