The scientist of ISTU Alexander MALASHCHENKO has undergone research internship at the University of Kassel, one of the best German institutions in training mechanical engineering specialists. Campus of the University is situated on the territory of the former machine plant Henschel. The young scientist made researches under the supervision of Professor Berthold SCHOLTES, expert in research of deflected modes of metals.
A. MALASHCHENKO researched changes of mechanical properties of metals after shaping and hardening of avionics parts. “At the University of Kassel I had access to all laboratories and its equipment; I furthermore had an opportunity to consult skilled specialists. Researches made under the supervision of Professor SCHOLTES will be the base for my further related investigations at ISTU. We have also outlined fields of collaboration of ISTU with the University of Kassel. We have many areas of common interest. Professor SCHOLTES is going to visit ISTU in the next year.” - A. MALASHCHENKO said.
Based on results of his research work in Germany he’s going to publish papers in a Russian leading engineering journal as well as in an international edition included in Scorpus data base.
It is to mention that candidate’s dissertation of A. MALASHCHENKO was written within the framework of the project “Automation and increase of effectiveness of production of airplanes of new generation” of the government of Russian Federation.
REFERENCE: The University of Kassel is a public university located in the state of Hessen. It was founded in 1971 and majors in engineering, ecology, social researches and training of teachers. The University has more than 200 partners abroad and realizes about 200 EU exchange programs (LLP/Erasmus). Study programs are being realized according to the so-called Kassel model, when students are involved into the practical work from the very beginning of their study to become professionals by graduation.
About 22 000 students study at the University including more than 2 400 international ones. This institution collaborates with many Russian institutions of higher education including those situated in Siberia and the Far East.
