With the help of four innovative applications, students will be able to study the principles of machine tools and complex biochemical reactions.
Starting this year, future employees of industrial enterprises will be trained using virtual reality technologies developed in the Special Economic Zone (SEZ) of Moscow. The head told Department of investment and industrial policy of the city of Moscow Alexander Prokhorov.
“Students of the Moscow State Educational Complex (MGOK), the department of which is located on the territory of the metropolitan special economic zone Technopolis Moscow, will be trained using virtual reality technologies from 2022. Within the walls of the educational institution, four innovative applications have been developed with the help of which future turners and bioengineers will be able to study on computers the operation of machines for milling or molding plastic parts, complex biochemical reactions and processes,” he said.
One of the simulators allows you to learn how to work on universal metalworking equipment. It’s called CNC Milling and Turning. Another simulator – “Injection Molding Machine” – is designed to train future operators of an injection molding machine that makes parts from plastics by injection molding. Now more than a third of products from polymeric materials in the world are produced using this technology. The application teaches how to use not only the injection molding machine, but also other parts of the system.
The application “Genomic Engineering” allows you to study the technology of working with cultures of microorganisms, bioinformatics programs and DNA. And the simulator “Industrial Biotechnologies” allows you to master the process of preparing nutrient media, buffer and auxiliary solutions, that is, it completely imitates the work of a biotechnologist.
“All of the listed tools have been introduced into the educational process of students since 2022, and the simulators “Genomic Engineering” and “Industrial Biotechnologies” are already being used in competitions in WorldSkills Russia competencies of the same name. Augmented and virtual reality improves the process of training personnel for the innovative industry, to which much attention is paid in the capital’s SEZ. New educational opportunities will attract the attention of both existing enterprises and those who launch, expand their production and are interested in the influx of qualified employees,” said Gennady Degtev, Director General of the Technopolis Moscow Special Economic Zone.
The development of virtual and augmented reality is one of the most promising areas in 2022. These technologies are in demand not only in the field of entertainment, but also in the field of education – they are necessary for teachers, schoolchildren, students, as well as employees of industrial and military-industrial enterprises and private companies.
The use of augmented reality technologies in production processes is a new trend in the activities of industrial companies in various fields, says Igor Artemyev, director of the Moscow State Educational Complex.
“Simulation programs help students and young professionals gain experience. The study of machine tools, technologies that accurately repeat the work processes in enterprises, will allow you to learn the details, and then apply the knowledge in practice. In addition, it is safer than working on serious equipment without practical experience. Such technologies are the most innovative approach in the field of education. They appeared thanks to the special economic zone, close work with residents and the conditions that the Moscow SEZ created for them,” emphasized Igor Artemyev.
Many projects of the special economic zone “Technopolis “Moscow”” are devoted to the acquaintance of young people with industrial technologies. Are very popular excursions for innovative enterprises — face-to-face and virtual meetings of the Technoclub, where breakthrough ideas are discussed in an open format, video interviews with residents of the SEZ about professions of the future. In 2021, more than 240 students completed internships in various specialties at 20 companies in the capital’s special economic zone.
The Technopolis Moscow Special Economic Zone includes five sites with a total area of 223.3 hectares. One of them is located in Pechatniki and four more in Zelenograd – these are Alabushevo, Mikron, MIET and Angstrem.
Special support measures are provided for SEZ residents. For example, they are exempted from property, transport, land tax, customs duties. The income tax rate for them is only two percent. There are also benefits for the lease of land allocated for the construction of an enterprise, and upon its completion, it is possible to buy out a leased land plot for one percent of its cadastral value.
