UrFU discusses engineering education at Innoprom industrial fair
The panel discussion on engineering education focused on a phenomenon at UrFU: one-third of the university's students choose study engineering, and university representatives expect the number of applications from future engineering majors to continue to rise.
"We need to raise the prestige of the engineering profession," UrFU rector Viktor Koksharova said. "We need to try on all fronts to work actively to identify young people to carry out the engineering school."
Alexander Sobolev, the director of public policy for Russia's Ministry of Education, said the government is prepared to offer 10 percent salary bonuses to attract and retain quality engineering faculty throughout Russia's universities.
"Engineering education in the future should be built on a systematic approach to the ideology of the life cycle of complex technical systems," Sobolev said. "This, in turn, implies a wide range of skills that will allow people to seamlessly integrate into the global chain of surplus value."
