In 2020, nine study programs of Russian universities were included in the top 50 of the QS World University Rankings by Subject. These are five programs from the Moscow Lomonosov State University and one program from St. Petersburg Mining University, Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory, National Research Technological University “MISiS,” and the Higher School of Economics.
St. Petersburg Mining University was ranked 18th in the ranking for the discipline “Engineering in the mining industry and mining.” It became the only university in our country to make it into the top 20 in its field. In the same discipline, the 46th position was taken by NUST MISIS.
On Wednesday, April 15, the Russian stage of the annual International Forum-Competition “Topical Problems of Subsoil Use” started. For the first time, due to the coronavirus pandemic, it s taking place remotely: all its delegates get in touch from home or from their workplace. As noted by the organizers, which are St. Petersburg Mining University and the International Competence Center in Mining Engineering Education under the auspices of UNESCO, by the beginning of the opening ceremony, almost 900 people from 66 higher educational institutions had registered for the event.
The rector of the oldest technical university in Russia Vladimir Litvinenko noted that the projects related to the oil and gas sector, which are being implemented today in Russia “are admired not only in our country, but also in the world community.” For example, the processing plants of SIBUR in Tobolsk and the plant for the production of liquefied gas Yamal-LNG “Novatek”. However, this is not enough for a large-scale scientific and technical transformation of the domestic industry and the creation of prerequisites for the transition to a post-industrial economy.
One of the main reasons, which is a major constraint, is staffing. That is why, according to Vladimir Litvinenko, forums such as those that are held annually at the site of St. Petersburg Mining University, and this year, on the Webex platform, donated by Cisco, are essential. After all, they allow creating conditions for identifying the best and their becoming as leaders.
