Now the sixth group is studying there, which will finish the training course in June next year.
Since 2013, employer-sponsored students from Bryanskenergo, who study there in the full-time department for energy specialties, receive practical training: they have to practice at energy facilities of Bryanskenergo, and the best of them participate in students’ construction crews. For most of them - the branch becomes the place of work of building their professional career.
