Today, the Tatarstan Ministry of Industry and Trade hosted a regular meeting of the organising committee for the republic’s contest titled “Engineer of the Year”, chaired by Albert Karimov, where the parties summed up the application campaign.
Acceptance of documents for the contest ended on July 31 of the current year. In total, 258 applications were filed: 33 applications in the Future Engineers category, 145 in the Youth, Success, Prospects category, and 80 applications in the Experience, Achievements, Competence category.
Within the framework of the meeting, it was decided to establish a contest committee and organise its work in order to evaluate the entries and determine the finalists.
A further plan for the contest was also presented: finalists will be invited to an in-person travelling workshop. Participants will be able to study advanced technical developments and technologies, communicate and exchange experience with engineers of various industries and ages, and participate in educational programmes.
Contest winners will be determined after the in-person stage. The main award is a paid internship in an area of professional competence. In addition, a meeting with Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov will be organised for the winners.
Minister Karimov expressed his gratitude to the co-founder of the event, the Kazan National Research Technological University, and to the Gazprom Transgaz Kazan sponsoring the contest.
