February 26, 2015. Uralvagonzavod Corporation’s head plant is going to pay the college tuition fees of its future employees that are expected to be hired at the Nizhniy Tagil site as well as at the other member enterprises of the corporation, including Ural Transport Machine-Building Design Office and ChTZ Uraltrac.

According to the corporation’s press service, the Russian Federation Education & Science Ministry provided positions for 74 students that will be hired by the corporation, including 10 positions for ChTZ Uraltrac. For the first time, students on the special-purpose program will get admitted by South Ural State University: four applicants are expected to major in Energy Sector Machine-Building and three – in Design & Engineering Support for Machine-Building Enterprises & Special-Purpose Vehicles. Two students will be directed to Ural Federal University by Ural Transport Machine-Building Design Office to major in Radio Equipment, and two more will major in IT. The remaining 60 students will later be employed by Uralvagonzavod.

The head plant’s future employees can apply to Moscow-based National Research Technological University (2 students), Saint Petersburg-based Baltic State Technical University (Voenmeh) (3), Novouralsk-based National Research Nuclear University (10), and Yekaterinburg-based Ural Federal University (45). The popular fields of study are heating equipment, machine-building, metallurgy, automation, and others.

‘Uralvagonzavod has a lot of experience in covering its future employees’ tuition fees: we first tried it in 2000, and, over the following fifteen years, this has become one of the key trends in training high quality engineer cadre. The young graduates will be very welcome at our production sites, where we are introducing all the latest technologies and up-to-date equipment and are mastering our innovative special-purpose and civilian goods,’ the corporation says.
