In order to develop the professional qualities and practical skills of students in the field of engineering and automation of design processes under the project of the British Council «Creative Spark» in Ukraine, the Faculty of Mechatronics and Computer Technologies of the University with the support of the project office (Mr. Oleg Shevchenko) and the Office of International Cooperation (Ms. Olena Kizimchuk), a round table on "3D technology: the future next door" was held.
Mr. Atul Bhaskar, a professor at the University of Southampton (Great Britain), attended the roundtable.
The round table was opened by Dean of the Faculty of Mechatronics and Computer Technologies Professor Mykola Zenkin. From the rector of the university, Academician Ivan Gryshchenko, he conveyed the congratulations and wishes of fruitful work to the participants of the round table.
Professor Atul Bhaskar spoke about the current state and prospects of 3D technology in the world, and in particular in the UK. Particular emphasis was placed on the prospect of cooperation with faculty scientists and traineeships of young scientists and students at the modern technology base of the University of Southampton.
Representatives of the departments spoke about the development of 3D technologies in Ukraine and their use in the learning process of the KNUTD, about the prospective development of the young scientists: the department of computer-integrated technologies and measuring techniques (graduate student Svetlana Zenkina), the department of applied mechanics and machines (Associate Professor Oleksandr Manoylenko), the department of the knitwear production - the faculty of the fashion industry (Associate professor Tetyana Yelina).
At the end of the roundtable, the guest of the university was given an opportunity to get acquainted with the latest developments of scientists and students of the Faculty of MCT in the field of 3D technologies.
The specialist's interest was caused by a number of developments of the Department of Computer-Integrated Technologies and Measuring Instruments, performed on the modern world level with the use of original technical solutions. In particular, a new material of a complex structure that can be used in the production of protective materials (radiation protection, body armor, covert wear, etc.) has been created.
The meeting was held in a warm, friendly atmosphere and, hopefully, will be the beginning of fruitful scientific and practical cooperation between the scientists of KNUTD and the University of Southampton (Great Britain).
