Open Doors International Olympiad Can Help Become a Specialist in Power Engineering

Each September registration opens for the participants of the Open Doors: Russian Scholarship Project International Online Olympiad. The organizers invite applicants to take part in this project and enrol in Master’s degree or postgraduate programmes in Russian universities without any entrance tests and to study there totally free of charge.

Applicants can choose from among 500 best Russian universities. South Ural State University, a participant of the Priority 2030 program, invites foreign citizens to take training in business and management, engineering and technology, computer technology, linguistics and modern languages, economics, jurisprudence, and natural sciences.

Those participants who wish to become specialists in Thermal Power Engineering and are interested in Power Engineering and Electrical Engineering. Electrical Power Engineering programme, can choose Associate Professor, Candidate of Sciences (Engineering), Head of the Department of Thermal Power Engineering Konstantin Osintсev to act as their academic advisor.

The most important direction of the industry and power engineering development has been officially stated in 2022: “… the possibility of developing Russian advanced technologies and equipment for power engineering sectors adjacent to IT fields”. If international students choose this programme, they will gain the skills of operating any type of thermal and mechanical equipment, will learn how to calculate thermal losses, temperature fields, how to simulate thermal processes, and much more. Students from China, Iraq, and Algeria are already successfully studying in this programme at South Ural State University,” shares Konstantin Osintcev.

The department is fitted with new equipment and laboratory facilities for energy conversion, it also has a special refrigerator, pumping plant and boiler unit available. And currently equipment is being assembled that is related to neural-network algorithms in heat supply systems, and to control systems for oil and gas industry.

Foreign citizens and stateless persons, including our fellow countrymen living abroad can become the Olympiad participants.

The Olympiad is held with the support from the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation and Rossotrudichestvo. The Association of Global Universities acts as the project organizer.

South Ural State University is a university of digital transformations, where innovative research is conducted in most of the priority fields of science and technology development. In accordance with the strategy of scientific and technological development of the Russian Federation, the university is focused on the development of big scientific interdisciplinary projects in the field of digital industry, materials science, and ecology. In the Year of Science and Technology SUSU became the winner in the competition under the Priority 2030 program.
