NI ISTU will participate in the International Aerospace Show (MAKS)

Acting rector of NI ISTU, Alexander Afanas’ev, will take part in the International Aerospace Show (MAKS), held on August 27-September 1 in Zhukovsky, at the invitation of the president of Ltd. "United Aircraft Corporation", Mikhail Pogosyan.

At the invitation of Mikhail Pogosyan is said that in accordance with the implementation of the decree of the President of the Russian Federation "On the national aviation center" in Zhukovsky and development of national science and education in the field of aviation, Ltd. «UAK» will hold a presentation of the project of Aerospace education cluster. The presentation included in the program of the International Aerospace Show will be held on August 28. The event schedules the speech of the Minister of Education and Science of the Russian Federation Dmitry Livanov, Rector of Moscow Aviation Institute (MAI) Anatoly Gerashchenko, and Rector of Samara State Aerospace University (SSAU) Evgeny Shakhmatov.

The Agreement on Cooperation between Ltd. «UAK», Russian Engineering Union and 13 universities - partners of the Corporation, including the National Research Irkutsk State Technical University, will be signed at the presentation Aerospace education cluster. ISTU has been training personnel for the aviation industry more than 50 years and is one of the supporting universities of UAK along with Moscow State Technical University named after N.E. Bauman, Kazan State Technical University, Samara State Aerospace University, Novosibirsk State Technical University, Komsomolsk-on-Amur State Technical University, etc.

The agreement provides for mutually beneficial cooperation between the parties in the field of education and science with the aim of training and retraining of the personnel for the aircraft industry, the expansion of scientific and technological capabilities of enterprises and higher educational institutions, employment of young professionals in the aircraft factory and increase of the prestige of the industry.

Alexander Afanas’ev emphasizes that universities are interested in the integration of educational and research tasks of the strategic development of UAK

"Irkutsk State Technical University and one of the largest enterprises of UAK - Irkutsk aviation plant - branch of "Corporation "Irkut" - have a unique experience of working together, which may be interesting to members of the International Aerospace Show.

The partnership of the University with Irkutsk aviation plant has been developing over many years. ISTU has been training engineers in "Mechanical Engineering" since1949, in "Aircraft and Helicopter engineering" - since 1953. During this time, more than 13,000 professionals for the aviation industry in the country have been trained. Graduates of the university work in the aviation enterprises of Irkutsk, Ulan-Ude, Arsen’ev, Novosibirsk, Zhukovsky, and in the Moscow offices of Boeing and Airbus.
Most executives of IAP are ISTU graduates, including the current general director Alexander Veprev. Since 2006, university is allocated to 100 state-funded places due to the Defense Order. All of them are for IAP. In addition, upon request of the Irkutsk Aviation Plant, the University enrolls more than 200 students in full-time education. Thus IAP annually employs more than 100 graduates of Irkutsk State Technical University, 20 - 25 students of 3-4 –year of education take part-time job in departments and plant workshops before graduation.

Our cooperation is not limited by education. ISTU and Ltd "Corporation "Irkut" won twice the tender of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation within the framework of the decree of the Government of the Russian Federation N 218 (cooperation of universities and enterprises). Part of researches of the university in the field of aircraft engineering has been successfully implemented in production. Currently, research work is carried out under the project "Automation and efficiency of the manufacturing processes and the manufacture of products of the aircraft of new generation," said Alexander Afanas’ev.

In the framework of the International Aerospace Show postgraduate student of the subdepartment of aircraft engineering and operation of aerotechnics at ISTU, Alexey Kolesnikov, and a member of Scientific and Research department of the University, Alexander Malaschenko, will participate in the conference for young professionals of corporation, employer-sponsored students and student of supporting universities. The conference aims at promoting the aviation industry, increasing loyalty of young professionals, students and graduates to the Corporation as a reliable and successful employer with a high potential for the development of professional skills and creative abilities.

Young scientists of ISTU will present their researches in the field of aircraft machine engineering at a youth conference. Alexander Malashchanko jointly with other professionals is developing a universal technique of forming panels of the wing and fuselage for civil aircrafts, which will significantly reduce the complexity of the manufacture, as well as improve the accuracy of the final geometry. Employee of Scientific and Research department proposed original design solutions for modernization of bending and forming machine, which were approved by RF Rospatent. Another participant in the conference, Alexey Kolesnikov, conducts experiments to study superplastic properties of aluminum and titanium alloys on the base of modern high-tech equipment, which are equipped with university labs. Postgraduate student fulfills the modes of formation for the manufacture of aircraft parts.

Currently the International Aviation and Space Show (MAKS) is one of the leading places among the world's largest aviation forums. The main goal of the MAKS is to show Russian high technologies and Russian domestic market openness for joint ventures with foreign partners.

MAKS is held under the patronage of the President of the Russian Federation. A significant part of the program MAKS is scientific conferences and symposia held under the auspices of the State Scientific Center of Russia - TsAGI. They enable scientists and experts to exchange views on the most pressing issues of aviation and aerospace development in the present and the future.

A distinctive feature of the International Aviation and Space Show MAKS is its colorful and rich summer program. The upcoming MAKS-2013 will not be an exception. Test pilots of Russia will demonstrate the high performance characteristics of the best aircrafts of domestic production. The flying program of MAKS-2013 will involve aerobatic display team of Russian Air Force - "Russkie vityazi", "Strizhi", "Sokoly Rossi", "Berkuty" and the crew of aerobatic display team "1-e avgusta" of the Chinese Air Force.
