According to the preliminary plan of NTZMK:
– will assemble a group for targeted training in the specialty “welding production” in the Nizhny Tagil machine-building technical school;
– will improve the skills of engineering personnel with the use of a modular form of training in the magistracy, as well as the preparation of graduate students.
In the framework of research activities, organizations need to identify relevant research topics, conduct research and test on the basis of NTZMK. Most likely, one of the topics will be ways to improve the strength of structural steel.
Discussed project activities, which will be implemented by the employees of the enterprise with the methodological support of scientific and pedagogical staff of the branch of the Ural Federal University in Nizhny Tagil. The program is scheduled to start in September 2018.
In addition to the classic lines of activity, the plan outlined the joint preparation of participants for the World Skills Championship. This is an international non-profit movement, whose mission is to improve training standards.
