Schoolchildren from engineering classes tested their projects in the finals of the Preprofessional Olympiad

March 3-4 over 200 schoolchildren took part in the final stage of the Engineering-and-Designing direction of the Moscow Preprofessional Olympiad for schoolchildren, held at the Moscow Poly. Children carried out individual theoretical tasks and held tests of the prototype devices, which had to solve one of the technical problems offered by partner universities.

The organizer of the Engineering-and-Designing direction for the second year running is the Moscow Poly Engineering School (faculty). Participants of the engineering classes of Moscow schools meet at the university site in the final of the competition in order to try their abilities in solution of designer problems. “A schoolboy can feel himself an engineer at the Olympiad, and he will understand whether this is his area or not”, - tells us Associate Professor of the Moscow Poly Engineering School (faculty) Daniil Liberman. – “As a result of such immersion in the university environment it will be easier for him to define, where to move further and which university to choose. In the course of solving the case the child sees if the direction of the university suites him, and also evaluates his strength”. According to Associate Professor, the number of participants has grown, as well as the level of their training. During the presentation of their homework children showed good command of the school material-and-technical base.

The final stage of the Olympiad takes two days. The task for the first day is to present to the jury solution of cases, on which the teams had been working during a month. Children have to choose one of 8 cases from the Olympiad partner universities and manufacture an operating prototype of the device, and, as well, prepare the technical documentation for the project. They calculate the design, solder, program, learn how to present the developed product. This year the choice was among a robot, assembling containers, a robot, measuring the light, a display to visualize the images on the plane using the persistence effect, a device to sort the Lego constructor parts, a planetary automated building robot, a car with a function of automated parking, a machine-tool prototype for cutting, an industrial manipulator for rejection of the fuel pellets. The tasks for the finals were developed by the Moscow Poly, MIFI, MISIS. Representatives of each university were included in the Olympiad jury.

After the practical part children solved individual theoretical tasks, checking up the knowledge in physics and informatics. On the second day of the competition the schoolchildren gathered in the teams again, to compete in assembly of a functional prototype for the time. The children were using the materials, offered to them, and were designing a delta-manipulator for the automated moving of containers. “On the whole the participants showed a good result. But even if a schoolboy has a great experience of participating in Olympiads, not many of them know working with their hands and how to distribute the tasks among the team members. This is exactly the skills, to development of which the Olympiad is devoted”, - says Daniil Liberman.

The results of the competitions will be disclosed in the personal accounts of participants in the unique registration system MOSh.

Cell hologram in 3D is an achievement of the Moscow Poly in the area of digital microscopy

April 2 the Russian Science Foundation (RSF) disclosed the lists of winners of the contest for receiving grants in the priority activity direction “Conducting fundamental scientific investigations and search research by individual research groups”. As a result of the contest the project by a group led by the Moscow Poly Professor Sergey Kalenkov “Hyperspectral holography of bio objects in incoherent light” will be receiving the financial support for research amounting to 6 million for three years. 

The grant is devoted to introduction of new optic methods to get images in biology. A usual microscope does not give full information about the state of the biologic organisms’ cells. While transparent cells cannot be seen by means of a simple eyepiece. The researchers, who managed to make these cells visible by means of painting them with a glowing label, received a Nobel Prize in chemistry in 2014 for “development of high-resolution fluorescent microscopy”. But the cells change their nature when painted. And the holography methods help visualize the cells without interference in their contents and structure.

The method of recording the digital hyperspectral holograms allows to get three-dimensional image of an object by creating an individual light image for each wave length. A volumetric hologram of a cell can be seen wearing the virtual reality glasses. The digital information is processes by a computer and is passed over to the glasses in the stereo format. Such a hologram enables learning about the shape of the cell, its state, and to follow the impact on it from various substances.

Professor Sergey Kalenkov is a well-known specialist in the field of coherent optics and optical information processing. At the Moscow Poly research laboratory for coherent optics, the work in the digital holographic microscopy has been maintained for many years. The research, led by Professor, was many times supported by the RFFR grants. Last year the team received a prize named after Yu. M. Ostrovskiy for the best work of 2017 in holography and coherent optics. “Winning the grant confirms that we are on the right way, and our work is of great interest to researchers. This funding will allow us to develop the invented method by means of creating new experimental installations and instruments. In the near future we plan to begin research on the lab stands”, - comments Professor Kalenkov.

The project is open for young researchers. To join, please contact the Moscow Poly Department for Research Work or send your applications to:

The Moscow Poly students will show what the planet Earth will look like in 4020

This academic semester a project of the fantastic future world started at the Moscow Poly: the students will develop a virtual world of the Earth 4020.

A training project “Earth 4020” is a non-profit startup of the creative association of young filmmakers, artists and designers, launched for creation of artistic cinema. One of preliminary stages of the film based on a novel by a famous Soviet science fiction writer Ivan Yefremov “The Bull Hour”. The story raises questions in front of a reader: what kind of future do we want for our planet? What should be done to have a happy world built?

The project team is composed of students from different training directions of the Moscow Poly and the School of Computer Technologies “Scream School”:  graphic artists, industrial, graphic and web-designers, engineers, programmers and PR specialists. Currently the participants are developing the artistic concept of the Earth world 4020. Within the spring semester the students will create multimedia art objects, illustrating the life of earthlings in distant future. Already by the end of May it will be possible to see separate locations and frames: the buildings, where people work and live in 4020, transport, running along the streets of fantastic cities, and a space port, from which interplanetary ships start.

The project develops in an open form, everybody has an opportunity to take part in any work direction and watch implementation of an unusual concept. Please contact the organizers by e-mail or via social network: VKontakte, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

The Moscow Poly congratulates the winners of the National Technology Initiative Olympiad

February 28 the winners of the individual and team rounds of the NTI Olympiad in nine profiles were disclosed in the educational center “Sirius”, and the Moscow Poly was among them.

The format of the NTI Olympiad supposed a team work and solution of practical problems on real equipment. If you want to win, you have to prove that you are a professional: arrange the work process for yourself and the colleagues, read the documentation carefully, stick to the deadlines. “A high-class specialist will not always manage to form a high-class team”, - comments Olga Shabalina, a methodologist of the profile “Self-driven transport systems” and a teacher of the Moscow Poly Engineering School. – “We regulated the teamwork at the second qualifying stage, and before the finals saw to it that the finalists contacted each other, distributed the roles, thought of the mechanism and what problems could arise and how they would solve them”. The winner of the profile “Self-driven transport systems” in 2018 became the team “47ds-ds46”.

In the profile “Engineering biological systems” for the 7-9 grades the highest results were shown by the team “Vacuolele”. Among senior schoolchildren the best team was “Kekule”. By the way, this year a second-year student of the Moscow Poly Nikita Samoylov joined the organizers of the profile. The algorithms for automation of the aquaponic installations functioned on the basis of his IoT-platform “GreenPl” (developed in the framework of the project activity). “Every team has an account on our platform. They see the data of the sensors in their account and can manage the operative device. It is a big success for our project to participate in the final task of the NTI Olympiad and an opportunity to improve additionally the system”, - said Nikita.

The best team of the profile “Communication systems and remote sensing of the Earth” became the team “SMAAAAW”. The secret of their success is in a powerful training. The organizers say that participants of the “SMAAAAW” are the only at the competition, who have studied all the materials, provided by the developers, carefully. In addition, the work was completely coherent: each member had his own task, and by the end of the day gave full account of the progress to his teammates. They were advancing confidently, but in the very end the team “L2Sh” overcame them, when the team “SMAAAAW” encountered a new challenge. Participants of the “L2Sh” were perfect in programming, offering non-standard solutions. As a result, the last day of the Olympiad was very tense, and the winner team overtook the rival just by 10 points.

In the meantime, when the finalists again and again checked up the workability of the systems, developed by them, and were having qualifying racings and introduced last changes, Acting Rector of the Moscow Poly Vladimir Miklushevskiy took part in the business program, in particular – in the round table “Managing the talents of the NTI”. Together with the Assistant to the President of the RF Andrey Fursenko, Head of direction “Young professionals” of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives Dmitriy Peskov, Head of the foundation “Talent and Success” Elena Shmeleva, discussed various ways to create a educational environment for the talented schoolchildren, interested in the engineering activities, from technological clubs to individual educational trajectories and cooperation with companies and startups.

Stratagies of talanted young people support were discussed in the Sirius educational center

From January 23 to 26 -27 the II all-Russian conference “The way to success: strategies of supporting gifted children and young people” took place in the “Sirius” educational center. It was organized by the foundation “Sirius” in partnership with the Ministry of Education and Science of RF. Among the participants there were Andrey Fursenko, Aleksey Kudrin, Dmitriy Peskov, Ivan Bortnik and others. The speakers from the Moscow Poly were Acting Rector Vladimir Miklushevskiy, Dean of the IT faculty Andrey Filippovich, Teacher of the Center for Project Activity Dmitriy Teslenko and Dean of the transport faculty Pablo Iturralde.

The conference was devoted to identifying talented children and, as well, the mechanisms for involve them in the project activity and, further, in high-tech production. At the opening session of the youth section on January 26, the Moscow Poly Acting Rector Vladimir Miklushevskiy made a presentation. “We do believe in you! You are the generation to grow up soon and to come to lead the country, enterprises, regions and industries. I wish you every success!”, - he addressed the participants of the youth conference.

It is not the first year when the Moscow Poly works with talented schoolchildren. It is one of universities – founders of the National Technology Initiative Olympiad (NTIO) and is a co-organizer of the project shift “Big Challenges”, while the Moscow Poly faculty “The engineering school” prepares children to the project competitions in the framework of the retreat school in “Povedniki”.

This year three projects from industrial customers were offered at the conference “The way to success”, on which the schoolchildren might work in “Sirius” under the guidance of the Moscow Poly teachers during the summer project shift. Dean of the transport faculty Pablo Iturralde told the audience about the “Fenix Evolution” case by the company “ASPAS”. The project is aimed at modernization of the racing car “Fenix” to make the prototype more stable when cornering. During the plenary session the team of talented schoolchildren, students and recipient of the Presidential grant developed a mathematical model to pass the algorithm. If, in the source of voting, the project collects necessary number of votes, one more development of the transport faculty will go to “Sirius” as well – a car for disabled people, ordered by the Association Avtonet. To implement the project, it will be necessary to apply technologies for self-drive, in order to adapt the vehicle for those who cannot drive it on their own.

Dean of the IT faculty Andrey Filippovich presented to the children a case “Development of a model of infrastructure for launching the services delivering cargos by means of BPLA”. The schoolchildren, united in teams, were detecting technical restrictions of self-driven vehicles related to solving the problem, developed required safety systems and described the functional part of the program to control the flying devices. According to Andrey Filippovich, interesting ideas concerning developing the project further were born in the interdisciplinary teams, and children expressed their desire to join the development in a distant mode for the time of the summer shift of “Big Challenges”.

A Teacher of the Moscow Poly CPA Dmitriy Teslenko invited participants to develop a sprayer for the agricultural drone of the company “Agrobotics”. The case aimed at designing a more efficient sprayer is meant for the ability to apply well-known physical effects to creation of a specific development. Its goal is to reduce the amount of chemicals for an increased area of spraying.

In addition, January 27, Head of the foundation “Talent and Success” Elena Shmeleva and the Moscow Poly Acting Rector Vladimir Miklushevskiy signed an agreement on cooperation in the framework of holding the concluding stage of the NTI Olympiad in February of this year. Over 20 000 Russian schoolchildren have filed applications for participation in the NTIO, and the best 578 of them came to the finals. It is not the first year when the Moscow Poly organizes the NTIO, and this time the university employees took part in development of the tracks “The systems of communication and Earth remote exploration (Space systems)”, “Engineering biological systems”, “Self-driven vehicles”. All three profiles of the Moscow Poly were included in the draft “List of Olympiads for schoolchildren for 2017/18 academic year”, and thus, the winners will be able to enter universities without admission exams.

The Moscow Poly at the forum The Tutor

From February 13 to 15 a forum “The Tutor” was held in the pavilion 75 of the exhibition center VDNKh. Representatives of HR departments of the major companies and the agencies of the federal and regional authorities, as well as employees of education institutions presented their idea about development of the tutors’ movement in Russia.

Revival of the tutorship is an idea of the Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Moscow Poly takes an active part in development of tutors’ activity in Russia, by means of developing the programs for “The school of tutors”, online courses for the leaders of clubs, in a role of a co-organizer of the forum “The future intellectual leaders of Russia” and of the project shifts at the EC “Sirius”. At the Center for Project Activity (CPA) of the Moscow Poly each student project has its curator, who coordinates the work of the teams on the project and helps to shape a common frame for the professional activity.

Over 13 000 people took part in the inauguration ceremony of the forum “The Tutor”. There were welcome addresses from First Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration Sergey Kiriyenko, Assistant to President Andrey Belousov, Director General of ASI Svetlana Chupsheva, Head of the Foundation “The Talent and The Success” Elena Shmeleva. The speakers emphasized that a tutor is supposed to pass on not just a knowledge, but his life experience and values. 

The forum was visited, in a capacity of experts and visitors, by Acting Rector of the Moscow Poly Vladimir Miklushevskiy, Deans of faculties Andrey Andriushkov and Andrey Filippovich, Chief of the Center for Development of Professional Education (CDPE) of the Moscow Poly Aleksey Ovchinnikov and, as well, by the teachers of the Center for the Project Activity (CPA) and the Engineering School. During awarding of the best tutor’s practices, Head of the Moscow Poly CDA Ilia Lepeshkin received a diploma of a finalist in the nomination “Tutorship in education and clubs’ movement”.

Dean of the Engineering School Andrey Andriushkov conducted a conference “Tutors for new educational institutions”. The participants shared their experience in creation of the sites for communication between tutors and talented children, like “A teacher for Russia”, “Yandex. Lyceum”, EC “Sirius”, open laboratories – fablabs on the basis of the university. Summing up the conference, the moderator emphasized that a child acquires the idea of a meaningful life exactly in the process of a dialog with an unusual adult. Thus, the institute of tutorship makes up for a shortage of meanings, with which school or family often fail to cope.

Head of the Moscow Poly Center for Professional Education Development Aleksey Ovchinnikov became a moderator of the panel discussion among experts in the area of education, representatives of corporations and agencies of authorities “Tutorship for students in the framework of the practice-oriented training”. According to Aleksey, the participants formed a pool of concepts, that are synonyms to the concept “tutor”. Among them there are: a teacher of production training, a mentor and coach. “I would like to separate the concept of a tutor from these other concepts, in order to understand with whom we work”, - mentioned Ovchinnikov. – “Besides, we have to understand, which particular measures of the state support the tutors’ movement needs, so as not to kill informal relations between a tutor and his subordinates”.

Dean of the IT faculty Andrey Filippovich took part in discussion of tutorship for professions of the future. How to teach professions, for which any formalized standards do not exist yet? What kind of relations there will be between a pupil and a tutor in self-educating communities? What skills from humanities will be in demand in the epoch of a new technological revolution? – these and other issues were under discussion of representatives of corporations and educational institutions. Dean shared the experience of the IT faculty in updating educational programs. In his opinion, the rapidly changing world encourages emergence of new educational technologies. At the IT faculty people from industry play roles of curators, and their function is to pass over the knowledge, formed within a certain period, and then to return to their professional activity. The University gives only 80% of required knowledge – a student can take the rest during his internship, from tutors in internet or during his work on the project at a company’s order. “Traditional education, combined with a pointed transfer of unique experience, is an explosive mixture, well preparing us for the future”, - considers Andrey Filippovich.

Deputy Dean of the faculty “Engineering School” Aleksey Fedoseyev took part in discussion “What does a tutor movement in clubs need – regulation or deregulation?”. The experts discussed how the systems of professional standard should develop and whether there is any need for a legal standard, which would regulate the activity of the educational clubs’ tutors. And an employee of the Engineering School, the Moscow Poly student Irina Kuzmina took part in the section “Young tutors of the digital world”. What problems do the tutors encounter, if they are just from 14 to 20 years of age themselves – this topic was under discussion of the graduates of the project-based school “Elevator to the future”, who now conduct the project themselves, thus training other children.


The first all-Russian forum “The Tutor-2018” was arranged by the Agency of Strategic Initiatives with the aim of forming a state program of rendering support to tutorship and, as well, of selecting the best practices to introduce them in the regions of the country. More than 10 000 people from 711 cities and settlements of Russia took part in the work of the forum, over 230 speakers presented 120 lectures and discussions and held master classes in auditoriums and at the stands.

District forums “The Tutor” will be held in the Leningrad, Sverdlovsk, Irkutsk regions, in the Republic Crimea, Udmurt Republic, Stavropol and Primorskiy areas from February 16 to March 6, 2018.

Dmitriy Teslenko: We will not yet see a drone with pizza in the next ten years

“Cargo delivery by drones is cool, it is hype, but within the next ten years we will not see a drone with pizza’, - states Dmitriy Teslenko, Head of Laboratory for Self-driven Transport of the Moscow Poly, Resident of the technopark “Skolkovo”, Project Leader in development of “Agrobotics” – a drone for automation of chemicals’ spraying in agriculture. Right now the students and teachers work in the Laboratory on a few projects from real customers where SDFA are engaged. A spoiler: the cargo delivery project is not the most exciting of them.

“Agrobotics” at the project shift “Big Challenges” at the Education Center “Sirius”. Schoolchildren take part in development of the drone design

“Cargo delivery can be really useful in cities, when it is important to deliver a relatively small cargo within a minimum time span. But nobody will allow a copter to fly over a city – for security reasons, they are not 100% safe. Even big planes can drop, to say nothing of drones. A single drop of a drone in a city, even if nobody is hurt, will put a cross on drones. That is why even major players, like the Amazon, limit themselves to trial deliveries”, - considers Dmitriy. Nevertheless, at present a cargo drone fueled by hydrogen cells is being designed at the Lab, at an order of a customer company.

But, according to the developers, it is much more promising to use the SDFA for the aerial photography of industrial facilities and automated inventory at warehouses of the “A++” class.

Currently the Lab is finishing development of a drone for aerial photography of extended facilities on hydrogen fuel cells. The task of the copter is to fly for 100-200 km, get an image of the electric transmission grid and evaluate whether there are no chips, the insulation is intact, there is no danger of the line breakage due to hanging branches or to any damage to supports. If necessary, the drone should overhang and make an enlarged image. Many energy companies do need such a system.

Launch of a drone in “Sirius”

One more real case is the system of automated inventory with the use of drones. “There are a few teams that are working on this problem, and we among them. All of us are approximately at the beginning of the way, so who does it the first – he is well done”, - says Dmitriy Teslenko. The ceilings at the “A++” warehouses are not less than 13 meters high, on average around 15. At demands of customers or due to regulations by respective authorities from time to time the need arises to conduct an inventory. Until recently inventories were carried out manually – a warehouse employee would raise up on the lift truck and take down the necessary data, but now it is prohibited by safety rules. Copters will help people out. But there are certain difficulties in development of the project: the copter must be provided with additional light, protection of its screws, a powerful transmitter.

The copter at the finals of the profile “Self-driven transport systems” of the NTI Olympiad

Besides these projects the Lab develops educational master classes on drones for schoolchildren, samples of self-driven ground transportation with high off-road capability, scientific stands, “Agrobotics”. Most part of the Lab work is implemented by students – in the framework of the Moscow Poly project activity.

Cyber sport tournament was held at the Moscow Poly

April 3 a tournament in popular computer games took place at the Moscow Poly. The students fought their virtual rivals in “League of Legends”, “NHL” and “NBA”. The event was held in the framework of the series of games intercollegiate tournaments of the company “Riot Games”.

“League of Legends”, abbreviated as “LoL”, is a role-playing video game with elements of a strategy, having the coverage of hundreds of millions of players worldwide. During the day the students could play a session, take a picture with actors-cosplayers of the LoL universe characters, and receive prizes from “Riot”. According to the event organizer Sergey Kuksov, it was an introductory game for the students, not yet aware of this strategy, and, at the same time, a training for the Moscow Poly cyber sportsmen. The final, where the four strongest teams will meet, is to be held on the 15th of April. The broadcast will be available on the Live, Portal of Riot Games.

Just to remind, back in 2016 the Ministry of Sports of the RF recognized the cyber sport, and in 2017 the Federation of Computer Sports was accredited, and thus the opportunity appeared to hold a Championship and a Cup of Russia.

The Cyber Sport tournament was arranged at the university by the Moscow Poly trade-union organization with the help of the “Red Bull” company – the “Riot Games” partner.

The spring shift of the profession-oriented project The Dream University has been concluded at the Moscow Poly

The spring technical shift of the profession-oriented project for senior schoolchildren “The Dream University” has been concluded at the Moscow Poly. Children were told in detail about studies at the university, were taken on a guided tour to the laboratories of the Center for Engineering Development at the transport faculty. And during the workshop in the FabLab every participant could try his abilities in soldering and programming.

During the holidays a group of senior schoolchildren spent a whole day at the Moscow Poly in the framework of the project “The Dream University”. Children were told about the university, the student project activity, and were shown the transport faculty laboratories, where senior students create racing cars and electric bikes for participation in the international competitions “Formula Student” and “Smart Moto”. Anyone could also get acquainted with the participants of the student competitions and ask them questions.

At the University FabLab the engineering workshops “Author’s electronics” and “Programming” were held for the children. According to the Moscow Poly Engineering School (faculty) employee Anastasiya Nikolskaya, at the classes the children learnt to work with the soldering iron and other instruments, studied the basics of the software development. The tasks were not very complicated, and the project tutors helped children. “Programs like this help the participants to get to know the universities better, understand differences among them and define the trajectory for further education”, - considers Anastasiya Nikolskaya.

The introduction to the university was concluded with an interactive game “What? Where? When?”, in which the children could better memorize the new data about admissions and the student life. Together with the tutors they answered the questions: what is the passing score and why it is unadvisable to be guided by it? What is session, student card, student’s record book and the Dean’s Office? What is the meaning of the targeted admission and the Military Department?

A demonstration exam in the competence Prototyping was held at the Moscow Poly

March 30 and 31 a demonstration exam in the competence “Prototyping” in the “WorldSkills” format was held for senior schoolchildren at the Moscow Poly Center for Technologic Support of Education. The schoolchildren who have shown the highest results will receive additional scores to EGE for admission to universities.

Classroom stage of the demonstration exam takes place from March 23 to April 10 at various sites in Moscow.  The teachers of the event partner universities develop the tasks. One can earn maximum 100 scores: 40 for the theory and 60 for the practical part. The demonstration exam is designed to help schoolchildren decide on the future profession – the choice of a university, while for a professional educational institution is a means to attract the motivated schoolchildren to becoming their students.

Participants of the exam in the competence “Prototyping” were displaying their knowledge in mechanics and resistance of materials and worked at manufacturing of prototypes – experimental samples. They were creating a model of the plane landing gear: transmitted the drawing to the computer, made calculations and “printed” the detail on the 3D printer exactly according to the specifications.

Experts from educational institutions of Moscow and companies-employers evaluated the schoolchildren’s work, among whom there were the companies “Sukhoy”, RSS “Progress” and others.

Cryomedicine, bio informatics and green technologies: what do they teach you at the chembiotech faculty?

March 23 the Moscow Poly Acting Rector Vladimir Miklushevskiy met with the heads of the educational programs and of departments of the faculty of chemical technology and biotechnology. Dean of the faculty Sergey Belukov told him about the educational programs in cryomedicine, bio informatics and “green” technologies.

The science school of the faculty was created in the 30-s of the last century, in parallel with development of the chemical engineering in the USSR. For example, the first mechanical engineers of the Department “Mechanical equipment for turbo-oxygen installations” were trained by the Nobel Prize Laureate Peter Kapitsa. Among the graduates there were Hero of Russia, participant of the “Nuclear project” Leonid Kvasnikov and the Minister of Chemical Engineering of the USSR Leonid Kastandov.

The faculty still maintains relations with the chemical industry by training specialists in 9 directions – from refrigerating technique and the cryogen one to the life-supporting systems and biotechnology. The students pass the practical training, carry out research and project works at the partner organizations – SPO Geliymash, IONCh of RAS, ARI Kholodmash, R-Pharm, Ostrov, RBC, Bitzer. The faculty, jointly with the major industrial companies, holds a science-and-practice conference “Development of refrigerating industry at the present stage”, arranges “School of young researchers named after Professor I. M. Kalnin”. 

Educational programs are held at the faculty in the framework of the program of the National Technology Initiative: currently the programs on cryomedicine (“HealthNET”), the Master program “Low-temperature systems for agroindustry” (“FoodNET”) are being prepared. For the second year running the faculty employees are arranging the profile “Engineering biological systems” for the NTI Olympiad.

The faculty of chemical technology and biotechnology conducts active research work – two dissertation councils work there in 3 specialties, at the Department “Thermodynamics and non-equilibrium transfer processes” a grant of the Russian Science Foundation is being implemented. The programs of academic exchange for the teachers, students and post-graduate students with the Beijing Chemistry and Technology University is on in the framework of a megaproject “One belt – one way”. In addition, there is a partnership with the Chinese companies – producers of equipment for plastics processing. Besides, the faculty cooperates with the companies and educational centers of Germany, Austria and Sweden “Krauss Maffei”, “Zapfir”, “Entex” in the area of training and retraining of personnel.

The students pass practice-oriented exams and are engaged in projects, solving the industrial companies’ cases. A specialized WorldSkills Center in the competence “Refrigerating equipment and air-conditioning systems” has been established on the basis of the faculty. The first qualifying championship was held at the Competences Center, and now laboratory classes in the profile disciplines are held here. The site is equipped with modern machinery by the company “Danfoss”.

In the framework of the project activity students work on creation of a thermo-vacuum chamber for testing spacecrafts, a freezer for cooking the ice-cream “Russian Ice-Cream”, a technological line for preparation of inulin, and other projects. In addition, the faculty has been developing the “green” directions, working on alternative energy sources, innovative nature-like technologies for the nitrogen industry, a project in water desalination by means of solar energy.

In 2017 the Departments of the faculty moved from the building in the Staraya Basmannaya Street to the premises in the Avtozavodskaya. The faculty managed to preserve completely the laboratory base: research labs constitute 40% of the square, occupied by the faculty. Most of equipment was replaced with the new one, supplied by partner companies and faculty graduates.

Schoolchildren from engineering classes were instructed how the road traffic is arranged in Moscow

March 27 the pupils of the 8th grade of School 2127 visited the Situation Center of the Road Traffic Organization Center (RTOC) of the Moscow Government. Children were told how the traffic is regulated in Moscow and received a task to optimize the traffic in their micro-regions. The event was arranged by the Moscow Poly Engineering School (faculty) jointly with the association “Avtonet”.

The Situation Center of the RTOC runs all services of the transportation complex in Moscow. The Center manages 1698 street lights, 2048 video cameras, 6741 sensors, over 100 hundred parking spaces. The meeting with schoolchildren was conducted by Deputy Head of the RTOC, Chief of the Situation Center Aleksandr Besin. According to him, the Situation Center is aimed at monitoring and operational management of the passenger transport, immediate responding to the road situation, work of the information system for traffic participants, running the street lights, photo- and video fixation of the road safety rules violations, control over the parkings work.

In addition to its basic tasks, the Situation Center informs the operational services of the city about accidents, fires and extreme situations. Children were shown how the Center employees monitor the work of high-tech equipment, placed in the city streets.

At the children’s request they were shown also the road situation in the area of the School 2127. They were offered to decide to which extent, in their opinion, the traffic was arranged efficiently and correctly in the Novokosino region, and to prepare a project for its optimization.

The guided tour was arranged in the framework of the trilateral agreement among the Moscow Poly, the School and the association “Avtonet”. The School 2127 takes part in the profession-oriented program of the Moscow City Department of Education “An engineering class in a Moscow school”. In the framework of the project the schoolchildren can visit university labs, take part in the engineering competitions and Olympiads. The Moscow Poly arranges for the children of engineering classes “The preprofessional exam”, “The preprofessional Olympiad” in the engineering-and-designing direction, the engineering direction of the Moscow City contest of research and project works, and, as well, the profile master classes on the basis of the University FabLab or the Children’s Technopark. All these events enable early professional choice of children, their acquaintance with the student work at the university, and allows to get prepared to the admission.

The mechanical engineering faculty of the Moscow Poly: prospects for our students at the labor market

March 29 Acting Rector of the Moscow Poly Vladimir Miklushevskiy held a working meeting with heads of the educational programs and departments of the mechanical engineering faculty.

Dean Evgeniy Safonov spoke of the prospects for the faculty. The engineering faculty is composed of 10 training-and-research laboratories and 8 departments. Once a year, sittings of expert councils are arranged for each training directions, where the level of the educational programs of the faculty is discussed and evaluated. Besides, the trends and priorities in industrial development are defined there, professional requirements to the graduates are ascertained, recommendations are formed concerning modernization of the block of professional disciplines, and involvement of practical specialists from industry in the academic process is discussed.

Over two thousand students are trained at the faculty. They take part in hackathons and WorldSkills championships, pass practical courses and internship at the leading companies of Russia and the world – Schuler, The Union of Machine Manufacturers of Russia, Rosatom, NAMI, Kia Motors, Sukhoy, Kamaz, “TsNIITMASh”, the group STAN and others. The students acquire special skills for the work in the machine building sector of the industry of technologies – they study technology of materials plastic processing, and, as well, technology of adaptive, welding and foundry production, learn to develop and operate electronic, micro-processing and computer control systems.

The faculty students take part in the project activity from the first year, develop engineering manufactures or technical solutions for real customers. Here are some of the faculty projects – a gantry machine, technology of electric-erosion processing and technology of adaptive robotic assembling. The design of the gantry machine allows to raise the details processing precision owing to increased rigidity. While the technology of the electric-erosion processing is widely used for manufacturing gas turbine engines. Due to mechanical impact of the metal arc the detail surface gets destructed, and that allows, for example, to make holes of various shapes. The technology of adaptive robotic assembly, in turn, enables intellectualization of processing devices, allows replacement of manual bench work with processing on the CNC machines.

In addition, an exhibition “Science-art education 2017: convergence of art and technologies” was opened at the faculty. The works, presented at the exhibition, combine nano-, bio-, and information technologies with art. It results in an image of a technologic future. Art is examined as a means to pack the image of the giant volumes of information in a creative way, and thus provide their rooting in the reality.
