Students’ working semester has started at ROSATOM Engineering Division facilities under construction
The students working semester has started at facilities of ROSATOM’s Engineering Division on July 01. For two summer months, 176 senior students of the Engineering Division specialized universities will work at construction sites of Kursk NPP-2 power units and the overseas construction sites – Belarus NPP, Rooppur NPP (the People’s Republic of Bangladesh) and El-Dabaa NPP (Egypt).
Students from construction teams will participate in civil and erection works at Kursk and Belarus NPP, will be involved in finishing works and landscaping of the construction sites.
In Egypt and Bangladesh, students will undergo on-the-job training in the Engineering Division branches. Together with professional experts, they will be involved in the designer’s supervision, monitor the execution of civil and erection works, participate in incoming inspection of equipment and execution of as-built documentation. Besides, the training program envisages the study of the fundamental principles of RPS-engineering.
An extensive program of cultural events in non-office hours has been prepared for the students at all the sites.
“Students’ working semesters at the Engineering Division facilities have become traditional and, what is more important, efficient”, said Alexander Chegodaev, HR Director of ASE JSC subsidiary construction companies. – First of all, this is necessary for the students themselves, as many of them are planning to work at enterprises of ROSATOM, and, as experience has shown, their understanding of industrial and production processes and professional interaction acquired at our construction sites will be in demand in the future”.
ROSATOM’s Engineering Division was one of the first companies in the industry to bring back students’ construction teams to its construction sites. The first students’ construction team comprising 25 people worked at Unit 2 of Rostov NPP in 2008. In 2013, students’ construction teams were sent to an overseas project – Belarus NPP, in the future the geography of students’ teams operation expanded. In total, from 2008, over 4500 students worked at eight construction sites.
