Closing took place today joint winter school SPbPU – MAI. Having successfully started the course “Polymer composite materials and additive technologies” on January 24 at the Moscow Aviation Institute, students of the Northwestern Polytechnic University of China continued their studies at the Polytechnic.

Vice-Rector for International Affairs of SPbPU Dmitry Arsenyev emphasized the importance of implementing such projects: The joint winter school of SPbPU – MAI is an excellent example of how, by combining their experience, leading universities provide relevant knowledge and create a unique educational product that is in great demand both among foreign, and among Russian students.

One of the main tasks in mechanical engineering is to reduce the cost of production of parts while maintaining the level of required mechanical and technological properties. Structural parts are traditionally produced by casting, milling, welding, rolling and stamping. In the case of the production of critical components, the requirements for the quality of the manufacturing process increase; often the most critical components are made from expensive materials. Milling parts from all-metal molds leads to excessive consumption of material, and the cost of milled parts from expensive alloys increases not so much due to the price of the equipment, but due to the cost of the metal cut into chips.

An alternative method for producing parts is additive manufacturing, which is being used more and more in a wide variety of industries. Traditional additive technologies use powder materials as consumables. In this regard, as part of the course, winter school participants learned about production methods and characteristics of powder materials and examined various technologies for additive manufacturing from powder materials. The technology was also presented in the course electric arc growing of metal parts from wire.

I gained a lot of fundamental knowledge such as material classification, definition, advantages and disadvantages, applications and prospects. In these courses, we not only felt the impressive knowledge base of the teachers, but also imbued with their humor and fun. This allowed us to make our classes both serious and lively,” winter school participant Cao Minyan told us.

The head of the program, associate professor at the Higher School of Physics and Materials Technology of St. Petersburg Polytechnic University Anton Naumov summed up the course: The joint international winter school of St. Petersburg Polytechnic University and Moscow Aviation Institute “Polymer composite materials and additive technologies” has come to an end, which is a unique example of fruitful cooperation between two reputable Russian universities. The first intake of applicants to our school consisted of more than 20 foreign students, which is serious evidence of the demand for the prepared program, because it is at the intersection of fundamental and applied research. We can say with confidence that our first joint experience of holding a winter school was successful! We are waiting for new young scientists at our next joint schools!

Students from China also enjoyed a rich cultural program in St. Petersburg. They visited the Hermitage and visited the Erarta Museum of Contemporary Art. We went to Pushkin and walked around the winter city.

In our free time we explored St. Petersburg. Unlike Moscow, St. Petersburg is more like an elegant and fashionable aristocratic lady, which always shows us its deep historical background. In the Winter Palace we felt its majesty, and at the art exhibition we were amazed by modern art. I think we only saw part of the city, and perhaps we will come here again to study. Thanks to every teacher who taught us, every employee who helped us. Thank you to the Polytechnic University for providing us with such a valuable opportunity,” shared Yang Hongli, project manager of the International Cooperation Office, Northwestern Polytechnic University.
