Students of MPEI National Research University, St. Petersburg Polytechnic University of Peter the Great, and St. Petersburg University of Aerospace Instrumentation took part in the Youth Days. These students are involved in student design bureaus, which were established in these universities by Power Machines.
A number of activities were organized for students as part of a three-day event, namely a team game based on solving engineering and technical problems, meetings with the heads of company departments and visits to production sites. During the course of all the events, measures were taken to prevent the spread of the coronavirus infection.
Youth Days have become an important project of Power Machines, which carries out large-scale work to involve students in the real work process, and to familiarize students with the specifics of power engineering and the nuances of this profession. Future machine builders were able to communicate with specialists, get acquainted with the work of the gas turbine special design bureau, and see the live process of production in the low-speed turbines workshop of Leningradsky Metallichesky Zavod, at SMTT.High-Voltage Solutions transformer plant, and at Electrosila plant.
"If a person comes to a technical university, it means that he/she has already developed an interest in this field, and we, being his/her future employer, consider it our duty to support this interest as much as possible, to create conditions for it to develop, and to provide all the opportunities we can for the student to reveal his/her personal abilities. Our work is specific in promoting this area: we are constantly solving new problems and creating unique equipment, and it is creative work which prevails in our business. Each young specialist who has joined our company after university, worked here, carved out their own path and achieved success represents another significant result," said Alexander Konyukhov, General Director of Power Machines.
