Metallurgical Machinery and Equipment
15.04.02 Technological Machines and Equipment

In the process of training in this program, students become familiar with modern methods of mathematical, physical and computer modeling of metallurgical machines; they learn to plan, install and conduct theoretical and applied research in the field of metallurgical machines, manage the results of research activities and the commercialization of rights to objects intellectual property, develop draft, technical and working designs of competitive metallurgic machines with the use of computer-aided design and the excellence of their development.

Reasons for choosing a course
  • Products of the metallurgical complex serve as the foundation for the successful development of the most important industries, such as engineering, nuclear and chemical industries, construction, transport, and electrical engineering.
  • The level of development of metallurgy determines the level of scientific and technological progress in all sectors of the economy.
  • Metallurgy products are one of the main export items of Russia. The share of revenue of large exporters in non-ferrous metallurgy is more than 70%, and in ferrous metallurgy 30%.
  • Training and work associated with the use of modern computer technology in the design of metallurgical machinery and equipment.
  • A graduate who has successfully completed training under this program is in demand on the labor market and can easily find work in metallurgical and machine-building enterprises with foundries, as well as research organizations in the industry.
