Cooperation with the CDIO community
For nearly two years the university has been interacting with Tomsk Polytechnic University, adopting from them the subtleties of elite training of engineering staff and peculiarities of the University restructuring.
Over the past two months, meetings were held with: the Deputy Director of the Institute for the development of strategic partnership and competences Benson Gleb Felixovich; Director of the center for international educational programs Tayurskaya Marina Sergeevna; Deputy Director on educational work of the energy Institute TPU Kadlubovich Boris Evgen’yevich; Institute of physics of high technologies Drobchik Vitalii Viktorovich and the head of Department of technology of automated machine-building production Urlyapov Alexey Yurievich; the head of the Department of engineering pedagogy Chuchalin Alexander Ivanovich.
The collaboration with North-Eastern Federal University has started by a joint training program “the CDIO Academy”. The main coordinator of CDIO in NEFU is the head of the chair Soldatov Sergey Nikolaevich, candidate of technical sciences, associate professor. NEFU representatives coordinate the technology implementation of active students teaching.
Colleagues from Astrakhan state university are one of the few in Russia, who introduce CDIO technologies not only in the undergraduate and graduate engineering education, but also in the undergraduate and graduate education of Humanities. ASU’s rector Alexander Pavlovich Lunyov completely supports the initiative of our University to join the CDIO community.
