At the end of March 2019 between "Kverneland group CIS" and the Russian state agrarian University MTAA named after K. A. Timiryazev signed a cooperation agreement in education and science. The document envisages the implementation of joint training programs aimed at improving the quality of training of specialists of agriculture, improving the qualifications of University staff, as well as the introduction of new scientific developments in the field of agricultural engineering.
In the framework of the partnership on the basis of the University for the new academic year will be fully equipped class with Kverneland manuals, stands, equipment and models of equipment required for theoretical and practical training of students. In addition, the parties develop a plan of lectures to be read by the best specialists of the company and its plant.
"Everyone is aware of the shortage of staff hinders the development of the agricultural sector. To solve the problem able to work together, the government, educational institutions and suppliers in the agricultural sector. Our joint task is not only to promote rural jobs, but also to bring their status to a qualitatively new level, to attract young people, – said General Director of "Kverneland group CIS" and "Kverneland group Manufacturing Lipetsk" Robert Cizak. In this partnership, our goal is to convey to the students of the University practical knowledge of operation of high-tech agricultural machines, to make their competencies meet the requirements of time, to increase the prospects of successful employment".
According to him, modern engineering tends, on the one hand, to the unification of machines from different manufacturers, with another – to the largest possible reduction of the human factor, which is much "easier" life of a professional machine. However, such a high level of automation and introduction of advanced electronics in modern trailers requires a completely different level of training than it was 10 years ago. Therefore, it is not enough to possess only theoretical knowledge.
That is why joint training program provides for the implementation and practical preparation complex. Students and graduates of rsau-MAA named after. Timiryazeva will undergo practical training at the company, located in Lipetsk.
In addition, the cooperation involves the retraining of personnel with higher and secondary professional education for the agricultural enterprises of Moscow and other regions of Russia.
