The first non-state mining and metallurgical university Metinvest Polytechnic, which was founded by Metinvest Group, signed a memorandum of cooperation with the global developer and manufacturer of mine rescue equipment, DEZEGA.
Opportunities to learn how to work with equipment to save lives and preserve health will appear for students and teachers of the new university, as well as for those wishing to improve their qualifications in this direction.
DEZEGA specialists will take part in the formation of the academic disciplines of Metinvest Polytechnic on labor protection, in particular in mountainous conditions. Students and teachers of the university will be able to familiarize themselves with world trends in the design, use and selection of personal respiratory protection equipment and study rescue technologies in practice. For this, it is planned to include laboratory and practical exercises using DEZEGA equipment in the curriculum.
In addition, the cooperation envisages the development of joint educational programs for students and teachers, including programs for passing practical training for university students. It is also planned to conduct joint testing and testing of respiratory protection equipment, developed or produced by DEZEGA within the framework of dual education.
Metinvest Polytechnic and DEZEGA intend to exchange educational materials and scientific publications to improve the qualifications of the personnel.
