13.04.02 – Efficient Electric Power Industry

This study programme consists of blocks of theoretical courses dealing with the field of energy, electrical engineering and energy management. At the same time, it comprises a blocks of courses focusing on exploiting theoretical background in practice. The graduates show the knowledge and understanding of the principles and characteristics of device equipment of the power systems and circuits, using of electricity in sources of electric light and heat, and the issue of electromagnetic compatibility.

Curriculum

First year
1st semester

  • Foreign Language
2 ECTS

This course is pointed on providing training courses for foreign citizens who had not studied the Russian language before. It includes language and speech models based on the requirements for the Еlementary certification level. Achieving this level in Russian will satisfy the foreign students’ basic communicative demands in social and cultural as well as in educational spheres of communication.
The content of the program involves implementation of flexible training models, depending on the communicative purposes, native language and students’ individual features.
