HEI’s image. The Faculty of Electrical Engineering of SamSTU is almost of the same age as the Russian power industry. At the moment it is the largest educational centre both in the region and in the Volga Federal District, which carries out training of specialists in production, distribution and consumption of electric energy.

Programme presentation. Quality training of bachelors and masters in the given area is impossible without the use of modern material and technical resources. Thus, laboratory and practical classes are conducted in the training centres of the Faculty – “SamSTU-Electroshchit” and “SamSTU-Schneider Electric”, and lectures are carried out in the classrooms equipped with multimedia facilities.

Teaching staff. The teaching staff of the Faculty is represented by highly qualified teachers. Among them there are 18 professors, four honoured scientists of the RF, 15 members of industrial and public academies of the RF, honoured inventor of the RF (V.N.ˇMikhelkevich), honoured worker of higher education of Russia and honoured power engineer of the RF (L.S.Zimin). Three staff members are awarded the badge “Inventor of the USSR”.

Competitiveness of students. During the period of training students have an opportunity to undergo internships within academic exchange programmes in cooperation with Technical University of Dresden, RobertGordonUniversity (Aberdeen, Great Britain). In addition, Master’s degree students of Almaty University of Power Engineering and Telecommunications (Almaty, Kazakhstan) undertake internship programmes in SamSTU.
