KFU Naberezhnye Chelny Institute is located in Naberezhnye Chelny, a city known for its heavy truck production, power engineering and processing industries. The city is a part of the Kama Region Innovative Industrial Cluster with several nearby cities together amounting for more than 50% of industrial output of the Republic of Tatarstan.
The Center aims to create competitive environment for the development, implementation and continuous improvement of original training programs for engineers.
The Center strives to involve industry executives as much as possible. For example, today three top managers of KAMAZ – Head of Research and Technical Center, Chief Engineering Designer, and Chief Technologist - are at the same time chairpersons of 3 departments of Naberezhnye Chelny Institute.
The KFU Engineering Center will be aimed at training specialists for various industries. We plan to kickstart more than 20 scientific and educational laboratories for advanced production technologies, about 200 million rubles have been invested already. Engineering Center is equipped to train top-notch engineers. Students can work with devices and machines which are used in production.
One of the laboratories is equipped by Ford Sollers. Labs for engineers, motorists, experts ,who plan to work with heating and refrigeration equipment, are fully ready. Future electrical engineers can work with Audi components. Another laboratory is dedicated to Mitsubishi.
The Engineering Center trains materials scientists, technologists, engineering designers, ecologists, experts in automation and IT, systems analysts, marketers, sociologists, designers, etc. These specialists will be ready to operate in the current market conditions.
Relying on the valuable experience gained, the Engineering Center is able to conduct comprehensive research and development in new scientific fields.
