The branch “Rosseti Centre Kostromaenergo”, along with other branches of the companies Rosseti Centre and Rosseti Centre and Volga Region, joined the implementation of a pilot educational project for university students, during which an information course on digital transformation of the electric grid complex was taught. The project simultaneously started in all 20 regions of presence of Rosseti Centre and Rosseti Centre and Volga Region. Its purpose is to inform students about what digital transformation is in the electric power industry.
Within three days, specialists of the electric grid company delivered a course of nine lectures to students of specialized specialties. In Kostroma, they were held at the Kostroma State University (KSU). They were visited by about 150 students of the faculty of automated systems and technologies of this university, as well as students of the electric power faculty of the Kostroma State Agricultural Academy (KSAA).
The guys were able to learn first-hand the specifics of the functioning of digital technologies in the electric grid complex, together with the specialists, they examined the main directions and technologies of digitalization, and also got an idea about the management of processes and digital data in the electric power industry. In addition, the students were introduced to projects of the first stage of the digital transformation of the electric grid complex of the Kostroma region.
“The digital transformation information course covers all existing long-term perspective directions for the development of the electric grid companies. The students showed great interest in this topic. They asked questions and participated in the discussion of projects on digitalization of the grid complex of the Kostroma region. I believe that this course will eventually transform into an even larger project for universities in the regions and will motivate young professionals to work in the modern high-tech electric power industry,” stressed Mikhail Soloviev, the head of the technological development department of Kostromaenergo.
“I enjoyed attending the lecture to learn more about my potential profession. I think that I will be able to further study the sphere related to energy,” commented a 3-year student at the Faculty of Automated Systems and Technologies of the KSU Artem Kopkov.
