The contest was held by the Ministry of education and science of the Russian Federation in accordance with the Decree of the Russian Federation Government dated 09.04.2010 № 218 “On state support measures for the development of cooperation of Russian educational institutions of higher education, state scientific institutions and organizations that implement comprehensive hi-tech industrial projects (subprogram “Institutional development of the research sector” of the State programme of the Russian Federation “Development of science and technologies” in 2013 – 2020).
Within the framework of the integrated project “Creation of high-tech production of sealing elements for oil and gas industry” scientists of I. N. Ulianov ChuvSU under the guidance of the Head of physical chemistry and macromolecular compounds department, Professor N.I. Koltsov, together with scientists of Kazan national research technological University will carry out research, development and technological works for the amount of 99 million rubles in 2017 – 2019.
According to the results of research and experimental-designing works sealing elements for oil and gas industry with high physical-mechanical properties, taking into account changes in technology of oil production, including recovery implementation of oil resources whose production is problematic and oil production in difficult climatic conditions of low temperatures, including shelves of the Arctic, Far East and South seas will be developed and introduced into production in the JSC «ChIA named after V.I. Chapayev».
The National ranking of universities of the Russian Federation, which indicates their being in demand by the Russian economy, was submitted last week by the project «Social Navigator» of the International News Agency «Russia Today» with participation of the Centre for labour market research. The study included 446 universities from 82 regions of the country. Assessment of universities was conducted by criteria such as the demand for trained professionals among employers, commercialization of the intellectual product produced by the University as well as demand for research product.
In the National ranking I. N. Ulianov Chuvash State University entered the number of demanded universities of the Russian Federation in the group «Classic universities», in which the leader is Lomonosov Moscow State University.
State, departmental, municipal and private institutions conducting specialists’ training by basic and supplementary higher education programmes participated in ranking of universities’ demand. Among them there were 132 engineering universities, 89 classical universities, 57 agricultural universities, 53 universities of management sphere, 68 humanitarian universities and 47 medical schools.
According to the leader of the project "Social Navigator" of the International News Agency "Russia today" Natalia Tyurina, the given study is of great interest not only for employers but for Russian school leavers as well, for those who make their educational choices on understanding where they will work after graduation. "Making their choice in favor of one or another University, they put on the first place not the brand of the University, but rather an opportunity to obtain in-demand profession," she said, adding that this is what explains the success of this ranking, which is represented by «Social Navigator».
As was noted by the expert, the study showed that currently in the Russian regions it is possible to get not less demanded education than in the capital. However, according to Natalia Tyurina, under modern conditions universities should on the one hand turn to the maximum towards labour market and employer, and on the other – build a serious career-guidance work with upper-form pupils.
Experts believe that such tripartite assessment shows consumers of high school services the chances of getting training that ensures competitiveness in the labour market and demonstrates effectiveness of the University involvement in solving developmental challenges of organizations, sectors and territories.
A roundtable «Prospects of energy and electrical engineering development» took place in the Conference Hall of building "G" of I. N. Ulianov Chuvash State University.

«MBF» -- such name was chosen by our young people to participate in the category “ADVANCE ROBOTICS CHALLENGE” of the 13-th World Robotic Olympiad WorldRobotOlympiad. Large-scale competitions were held from the 25th to the 27th of November in the capital of India, New Delhi. On the world stage, the name of machine-engineering faculty of I. N. Ulianov Chuvash State University was pronounced.
Master's Degree students of the 1st year of study of machine-engineering faculty Andrey Nikolayev and Sergey Mishin, under the leadership of their coach, senior lecturer in environmental architecture and design of civil engineering faculty S.V. Solin defended the honor of ChuvSU in the category of increased complexity of WRO-2016.
Why increased complexity? – On robots participants simulated technical vision system. In other words, technology, at which young people worked hard, can then be used, for example, in production of driverless cars. Theirpracticalvalue, asyoucansee, isenormous.
The Russian team included 21 teams and a total of 100 people – participants and trainers. “MBF” team climbed the 7-th place in final world rankings! Telling about his impressions, Andrey Nikolayev said that it was the first such a high level competition. It was a great responsibility to represent Russia. Tasks were close to qualifying ones in Innopolis: the robot was to play bowling. Young people liked organization, it turned out that the Indians are hospitable people. ChuvSU students managed to walk in the capital of India, to touch its incredible atmosphere.
Andrew returns to the topic of robotics: "The way to the Russian team was not easy. Permanent training after studies, work, on weekends. 24 hours thinking only of more effective automation of our brainchild. Someone might say, well, you're sick! But I will answer that automation and robots are the future."
His team-mate Sergey Mishin is as much in love in his work: «I feel emotional chute-the-chute, generating ideas after WRO! Thanks to the native faculty for valuable knowledge on automation, programming, modeling processes! »
Their coach, Sergei Vladimirovich Solin joins the conversation: "Guys were getting ready for the Olympics with a huge commitment, constantly, sometimes up to 2:00 at night. I would like to thank for support the Chuvash State University, LLC Research and Production Enterprise«EKRA» and LLC «Relematika», who were the principal sponsors as well as CJSC "CHEAZ" and the company "Otdelfinstroy".
