Rostec has announced the start of the all-Russian training program for engineers of a new generation for the aircraft industry “Wings of Rostec”. The project covers nine key specialized universities in Moscow, Ufa, Samara, Rybinsk, Kazan, Ulan-Ude, Perm, Irkutsk and Novosibirsk. Students participating in the program will receive motivational payments from the State Corporation in the amount of up to 50 thousand rubles a month and the opportunity to take part in large technological projects of Rostec from the very first year.

In total, in 2021, it is planned to recruit more than 120 students into the pilot groups of Wings of Rostec, who will study under enhanced specialty programs and from the first year of study will have the opportunity to work in the structures of the State Corporation. Students will receive motivational payments depending on their academic success: students at the Moscow Aviation Institute (MAI) – from 20 to 50 thousand rubles a month, in the regions – from 10 to 25 thousand rubles. 

“Rostec has industrial, investment and intellectual resources, which the State Corporation is ready to invest in the development of engineers, in their progressive ideas. The focus of our attention is the quality of education and motivation of students, including material ones. In this way, we will be able to ensure the supply of strong personnel to aircraft plants, which means that we will create new products and services that are in demand on the Russian and international markets. We are talking about both designers and engineers of stream production. We focus on guys who are passionate about new technologies, primarily those whose parents work in the aviation industry, ”said Anatoly Serdyukov, industrial director of the Rostec aviation cluster. 

Expensive training in pilot groups is organized at the expense of employing companies that are part of Rostec – UAC, UEC, Russian Helicopters, KRET, Technodinamika. The program is designed so that the level of training of the graduate meets the requirements of the companies, which does not always happen within the framework of the usual specialty in the flagship aircraft-building universities. In particular, training in pilot groups includes in-depth study of English, design IT competencies, mentoring of employers from the first year to develop professional skills, the possibility of international internships in leading universities in the world. 

“I am confident that the Wings of Rostec program will provide the aviation industry with strong and motivated specialists capable of preserving and developing our scientific and industrial school, creating and introducing innovations on the basis of aircraft manufacturing enterprises throughout the country,” Anatoly Serdyukov notes. 

The enhanced training program is based on the model of interaction with universities developed by the State Corporation, in which Rostec requires the achievement of measurable performance indicators from both the university and the student. The university will not receive payment for a student who falls behind in specialized subjects, while the student’s results are checked by an independent commission. According to the agreement, students with low marks are expelled from the pilot groups of Rostec and must reimburse the employer for the cost of training, and students with low marks are deprived of all privileges.
