Working for the FED company: Stability and confidence!
Today’s labor market is characterized by an imbalance: there is a great number of economists and lawyers, while there is an acute shortage of qualified engineers. Without them, the rate of industrial production rise will go very slowly. That is why one of the FED company’s goals is to motivate young people for obtaining engineering education. An example of an effective interaction between education and production are training programs implemented in the company.
A unique feature of educational program of the FED company is a combination of theoretical knowledge with practical training and the opportunity to get the first job. In particular, within the framework of the educational program, students study operation of computer-aided design SolidWorks in software packages CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing).
Educational programs of the FED company are aimed at rediscovering benefits of engineering specialties.
“The future of the modern enterprise starts with the first courageous step. Therefore, the FED company moves forward by searching, testing and implementing new promising areas of business, technology, equipment, units for aviation and space. We are always open to young skilled engineers and managers,” Victor Popov, Chairman of the Board of JSC “FED, says.
The FED company is a modern production facility that meets international quality standards and has European conditions of work; the salary of the qualified engineer can reach 18–30 thousand per month.
Cooperation of JSC “FED” and National Aerospace University “Kharkiv Aviation Institute”
The continuous process of updating equipment and technology under conditions of modern production establishes high requirements to training of highly qualified and initiative specialists. Therefore, integration of universities and production is a natural need for training staff with a high level of competence.
Focusing on long-term and mutually beneficial relationships with universities as partners requires new approaches, improvement of forms and methods of cooperation in this area.
The management of JSC “FED” consider that implementation of mixed form of training program combining the learning process and practical work is the best solution of this issue. Starting from 2014, a program for preparing students for operation of high-tech CNC equipment is implemented in combination with the study at National Technical University “Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute”.
Due to the agreement form of cooperation, the enterprise managed to find a way of remuneration for senior students of mechanical specialties who work for the company (while studying at the university) on positions that correspond to the chosen specialty.
In addition to traditional training of CNC equipment operators, in 2017, another group (10 h) was created, with the prospects of working in divisions of the company’s design bureaus, students of this group undergo advanced training for working with the CAD module of the SolidWorks software.
Taking into account the students’ requests for further employment, the company has undertaken to pay the study contract for junior students for the entire period of their study at National Technical University “Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute”. Working for the FED company: Stability and confidence!
