The Council for Grants to provide state support for the creation and development of advanced engineering schools has selected 30 higher education institutions, the government website reported on Thursday.
The project "Advanced Engineering Schools", launched during the Decade of Science and Technology and aimed at training qualified engineering personnel for high-tech sectors of the economy, included 25 universities subordinate to the Ministry of Education and Science, three universities of the Ministry of Health, one – the Ministry of Agriculture and one – the Ministry of Finance.
The largest number of universities represent the Volga Region (nine universities), the Central (eight universities) and the North-Western Federal District (five universities). The Siberian Federal District (four universities) is in fourth place, the Southern Federal District (two universities) is in fifth place. One university was selected in the Far Eastern and Ural Federal Districts.
This year, the grant support of the winning universities from the state will amount to 2.5 billion rubles. About 4 billion rubles more will be sent by technology partners.
The selected 30 advanced engineering schools will graduate the first 2.5 thousand specialists in 2024, the report says. Also, by 2024, 28 thousand teachers will improve their qualifications and undergo internships in high-tech companies, over a thousand grants will be allocated for practical training, as well as more than 500 new advanced training programs for engineering personnel developed jointly with technological partners.
At the moment, more than 40 industrial partners who specialize in information technology, finance, mining, heavy metallurgy, mechanical engineering, agriculture are taking part in the project.
Among them are PJSC KAMAZ, Roscosmos, Almaz-Antey, Sibur, Gazprom Neft, Tatneft, Norilsk Telecom, United Propulsion Corporation, Electrical Equipment Plant, United Instrument Corporation and others.
