Students of the Donbas National Academy of Civil Engineering and Architecture Visit NRU MGSU
On June 19 – 28, 2018, twelve second-year students of the Donbas National Academy of Civil Engineering and Architecture took an introductory training course at NRU MGSU within the framework of the cooperation agreement between the National Research Moscow State University of Civil Engineering and the Donbas National Academy of Civil Engineering and Architecture.
The students visited the leading laboratories of NRU MGSU, including the educational/production laboratory for aerodynamic and aero-acoustic testing of structural units, the research institute for experimental mechanics, “Smart City” centre for research and education, experimental and diagnostic testing laboratory for structural units, the Institute for comprehensive safety in civil engineering, and the hydraulic engineering centre for research and education.
The students also visited the construction site of the track-and-field arena of the Olympic Reserve training centre in Moscow and took an engineering tour of the Ostankino television tower. There, the visitors learned about the history of its construction and unique structural solutions implemented in the process of its erection.
Versatile introductory lectures, delivered by the faculty members of the Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture, NRU MGSU, added to the visitors’ knowledge in the area of civil engineering. The students gave particular consideration to the lectures on “Relevant Aspects of Application of Advanced Construction Materials, Products and Structures”, delivered by A.S. Pilipenko, and “Urban Planning Activity, Protection of Historic and Cultural Legacy and Development of Populated Areas”, delivered by E.A. Shevchenko, who managed to structure the lecture not only as a piece of textual information, but also as an overview of term and graduate papers prepared by the students of NRU MGSU.
Upon completion of the introductory training course, certificates were served on each visiting student by E.S. Gogina, Vice-Rector, NRU MGSU, N.V. Samotesova, Head of Department for Coordination of International Cooperation, and M.M. Magomedov, Head of International Academic Mobility Department.
