The first in Ukraine non-state mining and metallurgical university Metinvest Polytechnica signed a memorandum of cooperation with one of the oldest and most authoritative technical universities in Ukraine – the Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute.
Universities will become partners in educational, scientific, scientific, technical and innovation activities in eight specialties: metallurgy, computer science, materials science, automation and computer-integrated technologies, chemical technology and engineering, mining, economics and ecology.
Metinvest Polytechnic and Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute train bachelors, masters and scientists in the field of metallurgy and mining. In particular, students of Metinvest Polytechnic will be able to study at KPI, and students of KPI will be able to undergo practical training at Metinvest enterprises within the framework of the concept of dual education in order to meet modern business requirements as much as possible.
Also, universities jointly conduct research on “green” metallurgy, prepare scientific articles and textbooks, organize scientific and practical conferences and develop new technologies that will help bring the mining and metallurgical complex of Ukraine to a new level of efficiency.
In addition, the teachers of the Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute will be able to train at the enterprises of the Metinvest Group, which will help them better understand modern technologies operating in production.
Cooperation gives technical universities the opportunity to participate in grant programs for students and teachers to develop additional educational courses.
The long-term plans of universities include the formation of scientific schools, the creation of a scientific and practical hub, access to international scientific platforms and the implementation of double degree programs.
