GalSen develops creativity in future engineers

A MODERN technical specialist or an engineer is forced to work in a rapidly changing world, and so he or she has to face many so-called fuzzy problems. Extensive engineering knowledge is not a cure-all solution in this case. The old-times approach of educating solely through drilling and memorizing doesn’t seem to work anymore in such circumstances. In order to deal with complexity successfully, a specialist has to be creative and come up with unconventional solutions. So, the quality of training workshops, which should develop a new creative way of thinking of a competitive specialist, depends on the quality of educational labware. 

HOWEVER, educational institutions especially in the developing countries usually have tight budgets and simply cannot afford the latest labware due to high prices. Meanwhile, enterprises consider an option to train their current and future personnel themselves. But again, the question for them is how to train a specialist efficiently, because they cannot let an inexperienced worker to be trained right on expensive machines engaged in production processes with the risk of tools being damaged or people hurt. 

Sounds rather like a vicious cycle, doesn’t it? Luckily, there is an option to have reasona priced modern educational labware produced in Chelyabinsk by GalSen Group, which can spark engineering creativity.

The labware works like a construction set: students can freely manipulate separate functional modules to wire them up into some desired circuit, conduct a certain experiment to test a hypothesis, build a control loop, register parameters, etc. The modular structure provides necessary flexibility both for a student and a tutor. It is ergonomically designed as well as protected from misuse, electric shock, or overload. 

The labware’s core concept of flexibility motivates students to be practical researchers and active learners themselves rather than being passive recipients of someone else’s knowledge. 

GALSEN GROUP was founded in Chelyabinsk, Russia, by Yuri Galishnikov, Professor, Doctor of Technical Sciences, and Pavel Senigov, Candidate of Technical Sciences, in 2001. The enterprise develops, produces and supplies educational GalSen® labware for engineering and technical training for all levels of education as well as for professional development of personnel especially in industries, power engineering and transportation. The range of hands-on skills that can be practiced using the labware goes from basics of electronics, electric installation work, life safety, and up to complex disciplines like automation, electromechanics, electrical power engineering, energy efficiency.
