The first non-state mining and metallurgical university “Metinvest Polytechnic” is aimed at training Ukrainian specialists of the European level and the development of a new format of higher education in our country. The project is intended to become the largest in the development of technical education in Ukraine.
It is important for Metinvest Group to maintain constructive relations with communities in all cities where it operates. As a socially responsible business that intends to develop and continue to work in the interests of Ukraine and its citizens, the company conducted several studies and surveys among Mariupol residents in order to get feedback on their attitude to the construction site of the Metinvest Polytechnic educational building. The implementation of this landmark project for the city means increasing the investment attractiveness of the city, opportunities for retaining and attracting talented youth, as well as further sustainable development of the city and its improvement.
Despite the fact that the proposed place for the new university is located outside the city garden, and the construction did not have any effect on the garden itself, but, on the contrary, gave a start to the development and reconstruction of the recreation area of the townspeople, the public appeared fears that the park area may suffer due to the construction of a new building on the site of an old inoperative cinema.
Metinvest respects the opinion of the Mariupol society and is sympathetic to the desire of the townspeople to preserve the current look of the City Garden. Therefore, the Group decided to relocate the construction site of the main building of Metinvest Polytechnica and is now considering various options for new locations, including in other cities where the company’s enterprises are located.
Metinvest Polytechnic is the university of the future, which provides new broad opportunities for young people. The main goal of the project is the emergence of a European level of higher education in Ukraine and the release of competitive young professionals who will work for the good of the country. At the university, people who have chosen technical specialties that are in demand on the labor market will be able to receive higher education. Metinvest Group guarantees the best students the first job, financial and other motivations.
