Russian Helicopters has inked a cooperation agreement with the government of the Russian Republic of Buryatia to allow Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant to provide laboratory equipment to the Aviation Technical College, formerly part of Ulan-Ude Engineering Teaching College. The Aviation Technical College was spun off from Ulan-Ude Engineering Teaching College in early 2014 under an Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant initiative. The educational institution will train sector specialists, technicians and design technicians who may go on to work with the company.
Implementing the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant’s project to improve facilities at the technical college is expected to help improve students’ understanding of their specialism, thereby cutting the time it takes them to adapt to the workplace after graduation. The technical college’s best students will not only gain an opportunity to work at Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant, they will also stand a better chance of continuing their engineering graduate studies at East Siberia State University of Technology and Management, under an agreement signed with the Aviation Technical College.
An agreement between Buryatia’s government and Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant about this investment in retooling, and major repairs and renovation work to the Aviation Technical College’s building is currently being drawn up. It is anticipated that Russian Helicopters will invest 50 million roubles in the project, and that Buryatia will match that sum.
