First agreements between OAO Irkutskenergo and postgraduate students of the Irkutsk State Technical University signed on 27 October

The first agreements between OAO Irkutskenergo and postgraduate students of the Irkutsk state technical university were signed on 27 October. Apart from the scholarships scientists will receive access to the power engineering equipment and technical library, as well as an opportunity to consult employees of the coal and power company. Moreover, their employment is also guaranteed in the agreement.

Evgeniy Fyodorov, CEO of OAO Irkutskenergo and OAO EuroSibEnergo: “Irkutskenergo as well as many other power companies often encounters the problem that qualification of the university graduates does not meet the working requirements. As a solution we have chosen a way different from the existing practice: in 2008 we set up a corporate educational research centre on the basis of the Irkutsk state technical university. In April 2011, En+Group signed an agreement on the strategic partnership with the university. The next step was made when it decided to invest not only in students, but also in postgraduates. This is the beginning of the project which will enhance our talent pool”.
