UAC: AVIATION OF THE FUTURE
The United Aircraft Corporation (part of the State Corporation "Rostec") comprises aircraft design bureaus and engineering centers, historically located in Moscow, and 11 plants in nine regions of the country.
UAC implements the Aviation of the Future program for career guidance and personnel training. The first step is interaction with pupils: together with universities, UAC enterprises hold specialized academic competitions and programs.
Every year, together with children's centers UAC organizes programs to introduce children to aviation and modern technologies. For example, the program with Artek in 2021 was dedicated to alternative energy sources. Children created a solar-powered drone and talked to UAC specialists and Viktor Pugachev, USSR honored test pilot, Hero of the Soviet Union.
Training courses developed with UAC are implemented in Moscow children's technology parks: the Aero course at the Quantorium, Composite Technologies in Aviation Engineering at the Bauman Moscow State Technical University, and cooperation with the MAI technology park.
Every year, during the corporate WorldSkills championship, pupils take part in competitions in the Production Assembly of Aircraft Equipment and CAD Engineering.
UAC trains students for its enterprises at specialized universities (over 2,000 students annually). The main areas of study are Aircraft and Helicopter Engineering, Aircraft Construction, Design and Technological Support of Mechanical Engineering, Radio-Electronic Systems and Complexes.
UAC also participates in the Professional internships project developed by the autonomous non-profit organization Russia – Land of Opportunity. It implies a new mechanism of interaction between students, universities and employers, and uses student jobs and internships as a social lift. UAC experts develop cases for the project and evaluate students' work. The winners can undergo an internship at a UAC enterprise.
