Voenmekh was indeed created as a university for training engineers for the defense industry, while I emphasize – engineers of the highest qualification, one might say, elite. And here the features of the organization of our educational process, manifested already at the very beginning of our journey, preserved today, are clearly traced. This is a clear focus on the real needs of our defense industry, which is facilitated by strong ties with all major enterprises of the industry. This is also a broad, I would say, the maximum possible involvement of leading specialists from the defence industry in teaching. This is a purposeful introduction into the educational process of the results of our scientific research. Previously, it was based on laboratories funded by the Ministry of Defense, but today it is based not only on the work of military scientists, but also on the active involvement of students in scientific classes. This is also an in-depth economic and managerial training, which gives our graduates opportunities for serious career growth. Therefore, it is no coincidence that our graduates occupied a record number of senior positions, both in industry – not only in defense, but in the state bodies of our country.
