Program description

The educational program is aimed at training qualified specialists capable of conducting research in the field of reducing friction and wear in automotive vehicles. Reliability and efficiency of the car is determined by the reliability of friction units.

Students study the patterns of changes in the technical condition of the automobile, as well as methods for managing the life of the automobile. The master's program is provided with a modern laboratory base, which allows you to perform research at a modern technical level.

The peculiarity of the training lies in the fact that students perform research work related to real tasks of ensuring the operability of the friction units of machines. Students gain experience in independent research, and also master research equipment.
