Izhneftemash has entered into an agreement with Izhevsk State Technical University (ISTU) to establish the Petroleum Engineering Corporate Training Center.
Students take classes in Advanced Technology and Vehicles in the computer rooms of the company’s design and technology center. Izhneftemash Lead Designer Sergey Cherepanov, a distinguished industrial worker of Udmurtia with extensive experience in computer-aided design, manages the training process.
The stakeholders of the project have decided to boost the number of trainee groups and begin enrolling postgraduate students starting with September 1, 2013. Izhneftemash plans to provide thesis subjects to ensure that trainees will remain with the company after they graduate. The future postgraduate students will work on real-life issues that currently affect Russian industry.
“In the last two years, Izhneftemash has launched a number of modernization projects and has been experiencing a shortage of skilled professionals familiar with the CreoParametric automated 3D design system,” Executive Director Igor Mochalin commented. “No higher education establishment in Udmurtia trains students to operate the system we use at Izhneftemash. So we have arrived at the conclusion that the most efficient form of training is using actual manufacturing documents and acquiring hands-on experience. ISTU students now have the unique possibility to practice using industrial 3D design systems, and we expect that they will successfully apply at our company the knowledge and skills they get.”
The Almetyevsk-based Alnas, another Rimera Group company, ChelPipe, and the Tatarstan government are in the process of implementing the College of the Future Tatarstan project designed to train highly skilled industrial professionals. The College plans to enroll 100 students in 2013.
