Unfortunately, over the last years, emergency situations connected with terrorism occur frequently. Teaching of how to behave in such situations might save people’s life and health. Starting from 2019, SUSU’s Independent Certification and Methodology Centre offers training in a topical programme entitled “Personal safety and algorithm of actions in case of the threat of terrorism act occurrence.”
There is a School of Engineering Reserve existing within South Ural State University’s Automobile and Tractor Faculty. Under supervision of Master’s degree students and postgraduates, attendees of the School, pupils from Chelyabinsk, designed and constructed a real car.
January 31st through February 5th of 2019, first-year students of the Institute of Engineering and Technology’s Faculty of Aerospace Engineering took part in Winter session of CanSat Aerospace Engineering School in Russia.
Every year South Ural State University opens new Master’s programmes both in engineering and in economics and humanities specialities. SUSU has obtained the license for the right to perform educational activity under 3 Master’s training programmes, which will be launched already in September of 2019.
A selection round for the Metal Cup-2019. The Fourth Industrial Revolution International Championship on Technological Strategy in Metallurgy was held at South Ural State University, Chelyabinsk, on February 27th-28th.
On February 23, Russians celebrate Defender of the Fatherland Day honouring Russian soldiers for their bravery and loyalty to their country. This public holiday dates back to 1918 when Russia was on the verge of Civil War and foreign intervention. At the beginning of 1918, the Council of People's Commissars issued a decree on the foundation of the Workers' and Peasants' Red Army to resist the enemy. Throughout its long history, the celebration has changed its name several times, from Red Army Day to Soviet Army and Navy Day to Defender of the Fatherland Day.
Choosing a university is one of the most serious decisions in everyone’s life. For many applicants, the deciding factor in enrolling in a university is the affordability of education. South Ural State University offers around 3,000 state scholarships annually.
This year, according to Order No.346 of the Ministry of Education as of 28.04.2018, a big number of state scholarships will be offered for technical, natural science, and humanitarian fields of higher education.
Open House Day took place at South Ural State University. School seniors and their parents learned about prospects of education in one of the leading higher education institutions of Russia. Open House Day is a chance to get the most up-to-date information regarding training areas and specificities of studying at SUSU. University applicants and their parents had a chance to informally talk to Directors of schools and institutes and ask them all questions of interest.
It is no mystery that Russian winters might be harsh. Located on the boundary between Europe and Asia, Chelyabinsk is a Siberian city, and its temperatures fall far below zero in winter. However, it does not mean only the bravest can survive here. In fact, Russian nature is exceptionally beautiful and mysterious in winter, with snow sparkling on the trees like diamonds. Skating, skiing, strolling in snowy parks (weather allowed!), and drinking hot beverages – Russian winter is a must-have experience.
In most cases, accidents and injuries result from mistakes made by humans. In this context, the issue of how to safeguard human lives in household conditions and in industrial operations becomes important. This field is being studied by South Ural State University scientists, who have developed a training system for drivers and for industry workers with consideration of their specific psychophysiological features.
On January 24, 2019 a ceremony of awarding diplomas to the graduates of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering was held. Forty engineers majoring in Design of Aircraft and Rocket Engines; Design, Manufacture and Operation of Rockets and Rocket-and-space Complexes; Aircraft and Helicopter Engineering; Ammunition and Fuze Mechanisms, graduated from the Faculty. Eight people were awarded diplomas with honours this year. Special diplomas were awarded for the best graduate qualification works.
The fourth industrial revolution, when digital production unites industry and digital technologies, has become a reality. People manage production with the help of digital technologies and the Internet, so traditional education techniques are already insufficient. Within SUSU’s project-based learning, the Department of Automated Electric Drive of the Faculty of Energy and Power Engineering of the Institute of Engineering and Technology trains students in technologies of managing smart electric drives at modern factories.
In the age of Industry 4.0, digitalization of metal working processes is becoming more and more important. In contemporary mechanical engineering, metal-cutting machines form the main equipage for industrial purposes. SUSU scientists in cooperation with the world’s leader in production of thread-forming tools – the Vargus Company (Israel) – are going to develop recommendations on tool production using multi-axis machines with computer numerical control.
Differential electric drives with synchronous outside-excitation jet engines is a relatively new field of research, which formed at SUSU in the 1980s. Earlier, a significant role in the development of the Ural scientific school of electric drive was played by the Department of Electric Drive and Automation of Industrial Installations of Chelyabinsk Polytechnic Institute (now SUSU).
Russian scientific schools of roller operators, established within the 20th century, use two generalized approaches – the force balance method and the energy method, which have modifications in their structures. The founder of the Chelyabinsk scientific school of roller operators was Vladimir Vydrin (1920-1988), postgraduate student of one of the pioneers of the Ural scientific school of metallurgists, Professor at Ural Polytechnic Institute, Akim Golovin.
