MEPhI won the IV National Interuniversity Worldskills Championship for the fourth time

At the beginning of December, the “Young Professionals” (WorldSkills Russia) National Competition Final closing ceremony took place at MEPhI. Together with the Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development of the City of Moscow, Agency for Strategic Initiatives (ASI), and the Young Professionals (WorldSkills Russia) Union, our university became one of the co-organizers of the championship.

The experts observed the participants from the Competition Management Centers. One of two CMC was at MEPhI. The Center controlled the competition in five high-tech competencies: electronics, prototyping, composite technology, industrial robotics, and the operation of unmanned aircraft systems. The victory of the strongest participants was ensured by CMC continuous control of their work.
