GRIAT ENGINEERING CENTERS
There are two main engineering centers opened at GRIAT jointly with German industrial partners: Siemens Engineering Center and Thuringia Engineering Center.
The German-Russian Engineering Center was opened in April, 2016 to promote industrial ties between the Free State of Thuringia and the Republic of Tatarstan. The Center's key partners from Thuringia are Gramm Technik, МAICOM Quarz, SAMAG Group, Schülken Form GmbH, ZM Engineering GmbH etc.
The Center is aimed at providing technological audit for modernization and re-equipment of enterprises, carried out in partnership with leading German companies and specialists; searching for technological and economic partners for cooperation from Russia and Germany; consulting on issues related to export / import of goods between Russia and Germany; conducting seminars, refresher courses and other professional development activities on topical problems of industry and machine building in GRIAT KNRTU-KAI; implementing applied (national and international) research and development projects with GRIAT and German universities.
The Siemens Engineering Center was opened at GRIAT in 2016 consists of two laboratories: Siemens Automation Laboratory and Siemens Power Engineering Laboratory located in educational building No.8 with a total area of 60 square meters and an additional office space of 15 sq.m. Such joint laboratories with enterprises created on the KNITU-KAI basis enable GRIAT Masters to solve real engineering tasks. They can apply their theoretical knowledge “on-site”, which is confirmed by the practice-oriented nature of the Institute.
The Siemens laboratories are equipped with cutting-edge facilities, hard- and software: - 10 licenses of software Simatic WinCC, 6 industrial controllers for debugging processes and many other facililties intended for efficient operation over industrial processes.
