NMSTU — Nosov Magnitogorsk State Technical University
We have been teaching students since 1934


Electric Grid Management (EGM) is an educational programme designed to give students the currently relevant skills of research in management of electric power facilities. Through a combination of pre-recorded learning sessions and study on campus, you will learn how to control operation modes, deal with personnel management, improve efficiency of electric power systems and grids, and much more.

The teaching staff has considerable experience in carrying out projects and publishing results in peer-reviewed scientific journals.


Why EGM?

  1. We give our students an opportunity to practice at MMK. Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works or MMK — a unique base for research in the field of electric power industry.
  2. Our graduates are welcomed by utility companies, design industry and industrial enterprises.
  3. EGM is focused on satisfying the international labor market such as China, India, South Africa etc. 
  4. Opportunity to work on your own scientific project and its implementation.
  5. Manager for student’s group and personal supervisor from the first semester.
  6. Excursions to such enterprises as MMK, a new generation substation in Gorseti, FGC «Rosseti» (Federal Grid Company)
