Institute of Power Engineering

The Institute of Power Engineering was created to provide qualified engineering personnel for enterprises of the electric power industry of the East-Siberian region, for the implementation of fundamental and applied scientific research in the field of electric power, electrical engineering, electrical technologies, thermal power, heat engineering and creation of energy-efficient and resource-saving technologies.

The main field of activity of the institute is scientific and educational. The total contingent of students is more than 1000 people, 110 teachers, more than a hundred employees of educational support staff.

The implementation at the Institute of Energy of a multilevel system of training provides students with a wide range of opportunities to choose their own individual path to achieve a particular level of higher education in accordance with their interests, talent, quality of studies, opportunities, and needs of society.

The implemented model of the organization of the educational process at the Power Engineering suggests the strengthening of fundamental training in natural science and general professional disciplines, a wide choice of training profiles, and an increase in the number of elective courses for students to choose.

Graduates are preparing for the design, production and technological, organizational, managerial, research, installation and commissioning and service and operational activities at the facilities of the national economy in accordance with the profile of training.

The high level of training of specialists in electrical and thermal power engineering at the Institute of Power Engineering is ensured by the presence of highly qualified faculty members with the involvement of production specialists and leading scientists of the Power Engineering of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the optimal choice of special courses, a combination of experimental and theoretical methods with a wide use of computer technology, modern scientific and technological equipment, a wide base of educational literature, audiovisual technology, the use of new forms of education, including interactive ones. The participation of the faculty of the institute,  graduate students in research work ensures the integration of the educational process with advanced modern science.
