Students of MPEI received a thorough understanding of advanced electrical insulating technologies
On 31 October 2023, a visiting tour of the Izolyator Group enterprises was organized for students of the Department of Physics and Technologies of Electrical Materials and Components of the Institute of Electrical Engineering and Electrification of National Research University ‘Moscow Power Engineering Institute’.
The Department of Physics and Technologies of Electrical Materials and Components of the Institute of Electrical Engineering and Electrification of National Research University ‘Moscow Power Engineering Institute’ (Dept. of PTEMC IEEE) educates specialists and researchers in the field of electrical materials science, electronic materials, electrical insulation and cable technology. Graduates of the department successfully work in the electrotechnical industry, power engineering, research and production organizations and firms. The department is headed by the Head of the Izolyator Group, Member of the Dissertation Board of MPEI, Dr. Alexander Slavinsky.
The first-year master’s students majoring in Electrical materials science, physics and technology of electrical insulation, cables and electrical capacitor manufacturing participated.
The excursion is organized by the Izolyator Corporate University within the framework of social partnership with the MPEI.
The students’ stay program at the Izolyator Group of companies included a visit to the corporate museum, the Izolyator-VV high-voltage bushings production complex (Izolyator-VV PC), the Izolyator-AKS high-voltage cable accessories plant, as well as facilities used to promote corporate culture.
