Electromachine, one of Uralvagonzavod Corporation’s branches, is investing in the education of 30 South Ural State University students.
Electromachine will co-invest in these college students’ education and later hire them as employees. The students must compete to gain final entry into the investment deal; they must achieve a given score on each exam.
17 students will finish their Bachelor’s degrees and then complete five-year programs. The rest of the 30 students must attend graduate school. Then Electromachine will employ the students.
“The university only used to give us information on the number of positions available in May, at which point finding school-leavers who would be interested in joining our program was a problem: some of them had already chosen another college, some of them had not taken the exams needed to apply, and so on,” Natalya Fersovitch, Electromachine’s director of personnel training and development, said. “We appealed to the Ministry for Industry & Trade, asking to change the date the budgets get settled, so we already have the information for next year’s enrollment now. This will make next year’s school-leavers professional choices much easier and will give them enough time to set their learning priorities and select which exams to take.”
