Each of the SUSU schools or institutes is engaged in project-based education today. The value of such approach to training is that along with theory the future professionals could obtain certain practical skills, which s/he could directly apply in production while joining the process of work. As much as seven Master’s students are involved in the project by the SUSU School of Medical Biology, who travel to test fields, do experiments and analyse their results.
Starting from September of 2018, SUSU has been officially implementing project-based training within master’s studies. Project-based learning programmes are presented practically in all Schools and Institutes of SUSU.
Choosing a profession in many aspects determine a person’s future as well as his or her development and life quality. However, not everyone can answer the question of whom to become. In order to help university applicants and students to choose a sphere of professional activity, the Faculty of Psychology of the SUSU Institute of Social Sciences and Humanities is launching a project entitled “Digital Biometrical Twin of a Professional”.
The Institute of Supplementary Education is beginning professional training courses for specialists of KONAR Industrial Group, one of the leading international manufacturers in complex engineering and production of complex metal constructions.
Specialists of the company, CNC machine servicemen, will learn the basics of hydraulics, tribology, electric drives, CNC measuring systems, and the basics of advanced programming language.
Within the frameworks of opening project-based Master’s programme at the Institute of Architecture and Construction a meeting was organised for the students of the 3rd and 4th years of study and the representatives of the SUSU partner, OJSC Chelyabtyazhmashproekt Design Institute, being part of PSO KURS, LLC Group of Companies, as well as of NormaSOFT, LLC company.
In the 2018–2019 academic year South Ural State University has introduced project-based learning — a new educational technology, which will take the training of specialists to an even higher level. In the context of this innovation a Master’s programme on Project Management of Enterprises and Organisations Development was launched at the SUSU School of Economics and Management.
South Ural State University will offer its students qualitatively new level of obtaining higher professional education. Starting from September 2018, one of our country’s leading universities will implement project-based learning, both in Bachelor’s and Master’s groups of elite training.
In 2018–2019, the program of project-based education has been officially launched at South Ural State University. However, this educational technology has already been implementing in a number of university’s subdivisions for many years. In particular, SUSU students have been working on construction of race cars since 2012 in the frameworks of Formula Student engineering competition among university students, organized by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), which nowadays includes 570 teams representing higher education institutions from around the world.
In the 2018-2019 academic years at South Ural State University, a program of project-based education is being officially introduced. In a few of the university’s subdivisions, including in the Polytechnic Institute, this academic technique has already been implemented for a few years.

In September, School of Economics and Management of South Ural State University is going to open a unique-for-the-Ural-region Center of Business Development Technology, which is to implement interactive education programs.
One of the most promising fields of development for South Ural State University is the active implementation of project-based education in the academic process. In the near future, this practice will appear in each of the university’s faculties. A vivid example of project-based education of the work of the SUSU School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science is its partnership with the company Samsung Electronics. In April 2018, SUSU’s application won a contest for the fulfillment of the program IoT Academy Samsung at the SUSU SEECS.
In 2018 enrollees were accepted to the Bachelor’s, Specialist and Master’s programs of the Polytechnic Institute under 42 fields of training.
