D.Sc. (Engineering), Professor

Due to Project 5-100 implementation in 2016 all the engineering faculties of South Ural State University were joined into a new intrauniversity structure, the Institute of Engineering and Technology.

Originally, South Ural State University was established as a polytechnic higher education institution. Its scientific and educational process had been technically oriented for many years. The unification of all engineering faculties of the base industrial sectors has propelled the University to a fundamentally new level. It allows us to integrate all educational and scientific resources and, thus, to maximize the University’s competitiveness and strengthen its leading position in the field of engineering knowledge both in the South Ural capital, and beyond.

The Faculties of Automobile and Tractor Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Power Engineering, the Faculty of Mechanics and Technology, and the Faculty of Materials and Metallurgical Technologies are organized into the new University structure. The Institute of Engineering and Technology has its own Extramural Faculty. The Polytechnic Institute of SUSU in Chelyabinsk combines 19 technically oriented departments; and each of them has its own unique field of development. Five more base departments of the Institute are located in various cities of the Chelyabinsk Region.

The structure of Institute of Engineering and Technology includes 5 scientific departments, 6 university-wide research and education centers (REC), and scientific research laboratories: REC “Aerospace Technology”; Center for Collective Use “Power Engineering and Supply”; Secondary Vocational Education Department “Summer Operation of Aircrafts”; “Aviation Training Center”; “Rocket and Space Technology Education Center named after V.P. Makeyev”; REC “Experimental Mechanics”; REC “Composite Materials and Constructions”, etc.

One of the Institute’s core advantages is an exclusive engineering training center. It is a so-called “school for high achieving students” which offers enhanced training for all engineering specializations and pays special attention to mathematical disciplines. The students of our elite training center interact with leading professors of the Institute of Engineering and Technology and have an advantage when realizing their ideas in the framework of small innovative enterprises of the University.
