This year the Department of International Educational Programs and Ural Power Engineering Institute of Ural Federal University are offering 3 tracks for Online Internship 2021: Machine Learning In Power Industry, Robotics In Power Industry and Intelligent Recognition Systems. The leaders of the tracks Stanislav Eroshenko and Alexandra Khalyasmaa from Ural Power Engineering Institute of UrFU say that all projects are designed based on the demand of the industries and challenges that they have to face. The duration of Machine Learning In Power Industry and Robotics In Power Industry is 3 months and they start on 1, May 2021. Intelligent Recognition Systems will continue for 1,5 months and start on the 14, June. All tracks include practical classes on Machine Learning and Python, working on the real industry cases of the real industrial company. Based on the results of the Online Internship participants are able to publish their results together with the project leaders.

“Internship Program is a unique opportunity to gain practical experience. Within 6-years experience of our Department we have worked closely with Regional Companies and Institutes of UrFU, every year we enlarge a number of our partners who are interested to work with an international team of young experts. We stay in touch with our former participants and are happy to see how this program impacted their further studies and career, all of them did tremendous work during the Internship and received letters of recommendation from the industry partners. We can say that the Internship is one of our most successful projects which demonstrate academic and practical opportunities of Ural Federal University and Sverdlovsk region on the international level. Usually, the number of participants is limited and we require a CV and motivation letter to choose the most successful candidates,” says the Head of the Department of International Educational Programs Iana Vysotskaia.

This year a high interest towards the Online Internships was erased from Indian Partner University which joined the Open Online Lecture in big numbers. Students from Sanjivani College of Engineering, Bharath Institute of Higher Education and Research, Birla Vishvakarma Mahavidyalaya, Saraswati College of Engineering, Savitribai Phule Pune University and Pimpri Chinchwad College of Engineering (PCCOE) had an opportunity to ask questions directly in ZOOM and the others in the comment section of YouTube stream. Many of them are interested in the Practical Approach in their fields of studies and working closely with Russian Industries.
