Zaliv Ship Design (“ZSD”) always has a passion to play an active role in the internal educational process of own engineers within 16 years of its production history and business activity.
Thousands of man-hours spent on real projects, the professional knowledge of several generations of engineers, experience in working with key providers of shipbuilding software has been properly structured and revised by the company’s experts. Many of our skilled engineering teams were formed precisely thanks to internal trainings and seminars conducted on the basis of our own educational system.
Therefore, in 2019 we created professional educational platform, called “ZSD Academy”. In addition to the main task, the continuous development of its own staff, ZSD Academy sets an ambitious goal to popularize the engineering profession and simplify access to knowledge and best practices for young specialists and students with specialized education.
So, under this platform, students of Admiral Makarov National University of Shipbuilding (NUOS) taking benefits to learn the university material through a combination of theory and practice, participation in real engineering tasks. Such actions also play an important role in promotion of engineering education in general.
On ZSD Academy we use knowledge whether internal or external coaches, who gives trainings regarding software (CADMATIC, AVEVA, SM3D), shipyard standards, general engineering practice, etc.
Additionally, we plan to expand the range of educational issues and go beyond pure shipbuilding and begin to familiarize our students with issues of economics, management, personal growth and psychology.
We are continuously looking on the current market demands and planning next steps of our development.
