Accreditation. State accreditation. Professional-public accreditation.

Awards and achievements. Students are winners of the international exhibitions of innovations Hi-Tech, the hackathon held jointly with the university’s partners in the Effective Design competency.

Teaching staff. 75% of teachers hold academic degrees, including two Doctors of Engineering Sciences and eight Candidates of Engineering Sciences. Six teachers are employees of specialized organizations. All teachers carry out research and teaching and guiding activities relevant to the major of the program and have awards for their contribution to science and pedagogy.

Facilities and resources include multimedia classrooms, a computer classroom, laboratories of electric power engineering, industrial robotics, electrical machines, electric drive, electromechanical converters, electric devices. These laboratories are fitted with state-of-the-art laboratory equipment that allows students to acquire up-to-date practical skills to the full extent.

Education. The educational process mostly focuses on practical training. To master most disciplines, students do practical and laboratory work and course papers that allow students to apply the acquired knowledge in real projects. Bachelors learn how to design and set up electric equipment, electrical systems and networks as well as prepare documentation for their operation. Masters conduct research in power engineering, publish research papers and participate in science and technology conferences.

Research. High integrity networks engineering, the use of artificial intelligence in electric power engineering, cyberphysical systems in electric power engineering, digital power engineering. The research findings are presented in research papers published in the
journals indexed in the State Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles, Russian Science Citation Index, and Scopus, and at research conferences.

Competitive advantages. The program is supported by specialized laboratories of SUAI Engineering School: the laboratory of electric power engineering and the SUAI-Power Machines student design office. Students can take part in the Power Engineering Club
activities with immediate support from Gazprom Neft as well as undertake industrial work placements and pre-graduation internships at partner enterprises.

Employers and employment. The employers are top electric power engineering companies such as Rosseti Lenenergo, Power Machines, Gazprom neft, Research and Production Enterprise Mars-Energo, ELEMGROUP, Unicum Motors.
