Accreditation. The program successfully underwent state accreditation in 2020.
Awards and achievements. Students pursuing this program are prize-winners and winners of industry-specific case championships, research conferences, contests of research and academic papers.
Facilities and resources. Lecture halls are equipped with technical aids such as a portable laptop, a projector, a magnetic markerboard. Training aids and topic-based presentations are used. Classrooms for practical classes are fitted with modern computers with internet access and required software, have access to the electronic information and educational environment of NCFU.
Education. Starting from the first year of study, students have been acquiring both knowledge and practical skills. Classes are conducted in specialized educational laboratories and at research and education centers. State-of-the-art Russian and imported equipment
is at students’ disposal. Prospective engineers study electrical networks modes, operating principles of relay protection and automatic equipment, create their own scientific projects.
Research. The department conducts research in power engineering and energy saving. There is A. Ilchenko regional research and education center for efficiency improvement of energy production, transfer and consumption, which primarily aims to save energy resources, introduce energy-efficient technologies and equipment, energy conservation methods, improve electricity and heat measurement systems, train energy saving personnel.
Competitive advantages. While studying, students develop professional competencies related to the design of electric power systems and control of their modes, operation of equipment of high-voltage electrical substations. While studying, students have access to the equipment applied at utilities, which facilitates their adaptation at electric power industry enterprises. The program places emphasis on application of information technologies used as part of the concept of digital transformation of electric power engineering.
Employers and employment.
