Geographic information system center was organized as well and all necessary equipments were carried from Germany.
Since 2006, under the leadership of Ruzimboy Eshchanov, there is an opportunity as a for the students who has bachelor degree in biology, agronomy, geography and economics to continue their Masters degree in Vaynshtein University in Germany.
