Most part of the knowledge being the basis of inorganic chemistry was obtained quite a while ago. Today intensive development of science and industry requires new materials with special properties. One of the promising fields of research is organic compounds of antimony, which have long been attracting attention of scientists by their useful properties.
In September of 2017, South Ural State University, one of the largest and the most well-known universities of Russia, launched a new international education program of double master’s degree study in the specialty of “ Electrical Power Engineering and Electrical Engineering” (specialization in “Complex use of renewable sources of energy”).
According to Webometrics Ranking of World Universities published at the end of January, SUSU improved its result in the world ranking for 34 positions, climbing up from 2089th to 2055th place compared to the last ranking’s edition. Among Russian universities SUSU is placed 24th.
As a reminder, the Webometrics Ranking of World Universities is issued twice a year: in July and January. Around 25 000 of the world’s universities get included in the ranking.
In order to produce micro details for electronics and medicine, new methods based on micro mechanical processing are as relevant as ever. Scientists of South Ural State University are developing an innovative model for micromachining of details by micro grinding.
The necessity of high technologies in fundamental industry branches is still one of the topical issues of manufacturing. Scientists of South Ural State University invented a new technique of forming in precision casting which will allow for multiple speeding the process, and make it more simple and safe for the environment.
Specificity of the new method is in the quality of casting forms
Starting from March 1, 2018, within the framework of supplementary linguistic training program “Lingua” an advanced training course will be launched for subject professors who deliver or are planning to deliver lectures for foreign students in English.
Interdisciplinary research on nanotechnology, molecular physics, optics, electronics, and biology is opening new paths for science towards solving important issues where a narrow, single-field approach cannot do that.
In the not so distant future there will be a new technological wave in industry thanks to the fourth industrial revolution known as “Industry 4.0”. The transition from an industrial society to an information society will lead to changes in education. Already today in South Ural State University augmented-reality educational laboratory stands are being developed, thus implementing the fourth industrial revolution technologies into the education process.
In the modern world, a tendency towards solidifying the relationship between Russia and the Republic of Iraq is becoming ever stronger. In many aspects, this is connected with the growth of the role of scientific and academic partnership between these countries. With the goal of discussing the prospects of development of Iraq-Russia cooperation in education and science, a delegation from South Ural State University visited the Embassy of the Republic of Iraq in Russia.
One of the major tasks of modern logistics is delivery of cargoes to the most distant corners of the world performed in time and with proper quality. Severe-climate northern regions are no exception, though there motor vehicles are exposed to specific loads. Extremely low temperatures imply that frames of modular trailers and semi- trailers transporting heavy cargoes need to be made of high-strength steel. Today, scientists from South Ural State University have found a solution for transportation tasks in the context of Siberia and the Far North.
On January 18, a workshop entitled “Top Tips for IELTS Test Takers” took place; the speaker was Claire Barnes, a Cambridge Assesment English methodologist with many years’ experience of training students and academic staff for international exams. Claire also is a lecturer of courses of teaching a foreign language.
Implementation of this scientific project is one more step on the way to Industry 4.0. Problem of resource- and power saving is one of the most urgent problems in engineering. Intelligent system of electric drive control developed at South Ural State University possesses enhanced interference immunity and ability to perform self-diagnosis and self-reservation.
Where is the system of electric drive control used?
South Ural State University researchers are working on solving global issues of science and technology, and their developments, without any exaggeration, could become breakthroughs for all of humanity. Maria Aleksandrovna Grishina, Doctor of Sciences (Chemistry), head researcher of the Computer Simulation of Medications laboratory of the SUSU School of Medical Biology.
Magnets have been known to humanity since long ago. In Ancient Greece the ability of some rocks to draw chunks of iron had already been discovered. Contemporary scientists found out that not only materials on the base of iron (ferrites) possess magnetic properties. Nowadays among the most powerful magnets are samarium-cobalt (or samarium) magnets. Their principal feature is high temperature resistance and preserving of their initial magnetization intensity at temperatures up to 350°С.
Globalization, which at present has captured all sides of life and opened unique opportunities for intercultural communication for the modern world, gives societies the challenges of organizing interaction between partner countries. Today, 32,000 students study at SUSU, among them more than 2,000 international students from 48 countries, that is why for the university’s researchers and linguists it is important to find a point of contact between various cultures and religious denominations.
Starting from 2015 a system of elite education is being implemented at SUSU. This system is intended for those students who think about their future careers, and are willing to make efforts and spend their time to form basis for their future already now.
Electronic magnetic waves affect both people and equipment negatively. This is why the creation of new, special materials for radio electronics has become relevant recently. “Creation of a New Functional Material” is the project which won the contest “Beginning of Big Science 2017”.
Every year thousands of people find out about the dangerous diagnosis – oncology disease. All around the world, groups of scientists undertake multiple attempts to study the mystery of this disease’s origin and kill this disease. Modern methods of treatment of oncology diseases allow hoping for recovery or long-lasting remission. At that, psychological state of already-ill people plays an important role.
Within the framework of Program 5-100 being fulfilled at the University more and more innovation technologies are being integrated into the training process at SUSU. The pedagogical arsenal of professors is constantly expanding with new non-standard solutions including timelines, video-lectures, educational kits of new training goals and many, many others (for more details on the new training technologies please visit the web-site “New Training Technologies”, Section “Tools”).
Creating new materials is one of the main areas of contemporary nanotechnologies. The most prioritized research goals include creating materials with preliminarily set properties. Scientists of South Ural State University developed a theoretical model which allows determining parameters of a nanocomposite with desired characteristics.
