Today, the opening of a joint winter school of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University and the Moscow Aviation Institute took place online. This second general international project of leading technical universities. The school’s students will be students from Northwestern Polytechnic University from China. They will undergo training in the “Polymer Composite Materials and Additive Technologies” program.

At the opening, the participants and organizers were greeted by the rector of St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Andrei Rudskoy and the rector of the Moscow Aviation Institute, academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Mikhail Pogosyan.

I consider the opening of the joint SPbPU-MAI international winter school to be a truly significant event, because students will be able to gain the most important skills and knowledge in two flagship universities in Russia at once. MAI will host interactive classes, laboratory workshops, and students will visit a real production facility where aircraft structures are made from polymer composite materials. And then at the Polytechnic School students will get acquainted with additive manufacturing, which is increasingly used in a wide variety of industries. This approach makes the joint SPbPU-MAI international winter school a unique platform for developing professional competencies,” said SPbPU Rector Andrey Rudskoy.

The first week of training started at the Moscow Aviation Institute, where Chinese students will learn in detail about the advantages and disadvantages of the main types of binders and fillers that are used in composite materials. The training module program includes interactive classes, laboratory workshops and visits to real aviation production.

“The theme of the winter school program is those areas that will determine the competitiveness of the Russian and Chinese aviation industry in the global market,” emphasized Mikhail Pogosyan. —Cooperation between our countries is of a long-term strategic nature. The development of aircraft manufacturing and space technology is one of the priorities of our cooperation, since MAI closely cooperates with the Chinese aviation industry within the framework of joint projects.”

In the second part of the program, based at the Polytechnic University, students will become familiar with additive manufacturing, which is increasingly used in a wide variety of industries. Including the technology of electric arc growing of metal parts from wire. In this module, a course is planned on the production methods and characteristics of powder materials.

The organizers have prepared a rich cultural program for the students – a sightseeing tour of Moscow, a visit behind the scenes of the Bolshoi Theater, a visit to VDNKh and the Museum of Cosmonautics. In St. Petersburg, Chinese students will visit the State Hermitage Museum, the Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art, and also go to the city of Pushkin.

We hope that this practice and the geography of joint schools will expand, especially since there is every opportunity for this. And next time we will organize the program in the summer, during one of the most beautiful times of the year in St. Petersburg, during the white nights,” concluded Andrei Rudskoy.

Senior lecturer of department 101 “Design and certification of aircraft”, head of international educational projects at MAI Ilya Konstantinov noted: Modern engineering problems require an integrated, interdisciplinary approach. By combining the efforts of two leading scientific organizations, MAI and SPbPU, we managed to create a truly interesting educational product that covers a wide range of issues in modern materials science. During the training process, students will understand the basic technologies of design and production of products from polymer composite materials and products made using additive manufacturing technologies.

Candidate of Technical Sciences, Associate Professor at the Higher School of Physics and Technologies of Materials of St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, leading researcher at the Laboratory of Lightweight Materials and Structures Anton Naumov thanked the participants for their interest in the winter school course: Our program is a unique opportunity to get acquainted with the advanced developments of two strong scientific schools in a short time areas of aircraft engineering and materials science.

The program of the joint winter school of SPbPU and MAI is not just a course. It is the key to the future in engineering, materials science, design and other related industries. Students will gain valuable experience and knowledge that will become their competitive advantage.
