MSU named after Nevelskoy opens up a sea of ​​opportunities

The university pays special attention to training personnel for work on ice-class ships

Raising the prestige of maritime professions and giving students the competence to work both in the modern fleet and on the shore are the tasks that are facing the specialized universities of Primorye today. An example is the development of such areas as underwater robotics, crew training for new generation Arctic tankers and specialists in the operation of electronically controlled marine diesel engines. I spoke about educational programs with an eye to the future. about. Elena Zhilina, Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs, Moscow State University named after Nevelskoy.

Maritime State University named after Admiral G.I. Nevelskoy, located in the key Russian hub of the transport and logistics network of the APR - Vladivostok, is a unique platform for the implementation of educational programs related to the maritime theme, representing the full range of swimming specialties for the training of navigators, electrical engineers, ship mechanics, communications operators for programs of both higher and intermediate vocational education. The university also implements training programs for specialists for work in ports, shipping companies and enterprises: economists, logisticians, IT specialists, specialists in environmental safety, shipbuilding and ship repair, organization of transportation, transport management, performing agency, brokerage, transport and forwarding operations, psychologists (to work with the crew), lawyers specializing in the law of the sea and many others. Recently, girls have shown more and more interest in maritime professions.

Much attention, starting from the first year, is paid to organizing the practice of cadets and students. Throughout the training, swimming practice is envisaged, focused on the development of professional competencies, taking into account the requirements of the STCW Convention on the sailing training vessel Nadezhda, the training production vessel Professor Khlyustin, as well as on the vessels of PJSC Sovcomflot, FESCO, Fescontract and many others.


We pay special attention to such a promising area as training personnel for work on ice-class ships in the Arctic. The orientation towards work in the fleet and ice-class ships at the university is carried out purposefully when training cadets of swimming specialties who undergo practical training on icebreakers of FSUE "Rosmorport", icebreaker-class transport ships of PJSC "Sovkomflot", Lensk United River Shipping Company, etc. Theoretical and practical training for work on ships in polar waters, highly qualified instructors with many years of experience in the Arctic and Antarctica lead. In the near future, we will train crews for new generation Arc7 ice-class Arctic LNG carriers.

Education at our university combines powerful theoretical and practical components. We are constantly updating educational programs, writing new ones, involving industrial partners in their development and implementation, looking for opportunities to use new formats of training, including project-based. Thus, the university is planning to open a master's program in marine robotics.

The proliferation of digital technologies leads to changes in the sphere of production and in global markets, capture these changes and the sphere of education. Today, only the lazy is not talking about the digitalization of universities. The development and inclusion of modern technologies in the educational process is both a trend and a challenge. The essence of digital transformation is to effectively and flexibly apply the latest technologies to move towards a personalized and result-oriented educational process. We are actively working on this, as well as on developing the skills of teachers in this area.

Today, the country's marine fleet is steadily developing and replenishing with modern ships, ports are developing, innovative areas of the transport system are being actively improved - new types of maritime transport, technologies, marine robotics. Particular attention is paid to safety and environmental issues. Within the walls of our university today you will see a fusion of engineering, economic and humanitarian educational programs. The competencies acquired by students are universal and can be used both at sea and onshore, both in business and in government. Seamen and logisticians have a high demand in the labor market and a solid salary is significantly higher than average, and the prestige of these professions is growing from year to year.

The University conducts scientific research on a wide range of topics that meet the needs of shipping, shipbuilding, as well as the efficient operation and development of ports and their infrastructure, competitive logistics, safety of navigation and environmental safety in the operation of maritime transport and offshore technical facilities. The potential of the university is a number of scientific schools and teaching and research laboratories. For example, the results of scientific research in the field of marine robotics allowed us to create a creative environment for student and school teams in underwater robotics world-class. Over the past three years, the university's student teams in the categories of autonomous and unmanned remote-controlled underwater vehicles have been recognized as the strongest in Russia, and have won prizes in the world championships in underwater robotics. The university is a regional venue for the regional qualifying championship in underwater robotics.

The creative scientific and educational ecosystem of the university includes the scientific and innovative complex "Marine Technopark". One of the objectives of the project is the formation of a system of continuous education from school to graduate school with the participation of industrial partners. The university receives support in this area through the projects of the National Technology Initiative (Marinet), the Skolkovo Innovation Center Development Fund, and also industrial partners.

Throughout its history, the university has been cooperating with the leaders of the transport industry, providing them with personnel, and changing the face of the transport infrastructure. Long-term industrial partners of the university are such iconic enterprises and corporations as PJSC Sovcomflot, PJSC NK Rosneft, Maersk, ABB, Alfa Laval, as well as the Russian Fishery Company, which is actively building a modern fleet. Today, its maintenance requires competent specialists who are able to control modern computer devices on the ship and ensure the safety of navigation.


More than half a year ago, an agreement was concluded between the RRPK and the Moscow State University named after Nevelskoy on the training of personnel on the basis of the completed Far Eastern maritime training center of the university, which has no analogues in the region. The training program complies with the norms of the International Convention on the Training of Seafarers and Watchkeeping in the areas of navigation, ship mechanical service, electromechanical service. In addition, in 2020, following an internship at the Moscow State University at the MAN energy solutions center in Germany, a joint training program was developed for training specialists for the operation of modern marine diesel engines with electronic control.
