Program description

The main purpose of the basic professional educational program of higher education «Operation and management of environmentally safe thermal power plants» is to train highly qualified personnel for successful professional activity on the progressive enterprises and in the prestigious companies in the field of heat power engineering.

We live in the rapidly changing world. And power engineering changes greatly – new technologies, new methods of management and information transmission appear every day. What can help present people to adapt to these conditions?Only learning capacity. Moreover, the best way nowadays to achieve outstanding results in career is to realize the idea of long-life learning.

The proposed educational program is one of the steps on the way to this aim. The program is based on the principle of synergy for three extremely important today terms starting with the letter E – Ecology, Economics and Energy.

Educational disciplines from the unit “Ecology in Power Engineering” help the students to learn the basic directions of increase for ecological safety of different thermal power plants, including reduction of their physical impact on the environment, protection of air and water that is very important for today’s world.

Subjects from educational unit “Economics and Management in Power Engineering” allow the students to develop ability to analyze the economic and financial situation at the enterprise and to take effective economic and management decisions.

Unit “Heat Power Engineering” makes it possible to study the basic rules of technical operation and operating modes for thermal power plants, as well as improving modes of their main and auxiliary equipment, prospects for further development of the global power engineering.

General professional disciplines (philosophy, languages, computer modelling, etc.) help young people to develop universal competence useful from social-cultural and communicative points of view, be more flexible and adaptive.

Thus, education by the proposed program will enable students to acquire basic and relevant knowledge and skills from several scientific areas and to develop necessary at present competencies. Communication with teachers and students from different counties during learning will expand their vision of the world and provide new social and business opportunities. All this will make them competitive in the global labor-market and allow them to build a successful career in the field of power engineering.
