There was an open lecture on "The Current State of EduNet, FoodNet, TechNet markets" where students and speakers discussed global challenges and trends of their development.
The keynote speaker of the event was Nikolay Anatolyevich Baganov, Deputy Dean for Scientific Activities of the Faculty of Engineering and Technology.
The EduNet market, one of the STI (National Technology Initiative) markets, includes the following segments: personalization of human potential development, data-based development management, digital mixed engagement platforms/products, acceleration of human capitalization, and neuro- and psychophysiological technologies and tools.
Foodnet is the largest consumer market in the world, open to the integration of new knowledge-intensive technologies from robotics and IT in the Agritech and Foodtech segments to biotech, driving economic growth and with the potential to radically improve the availability and quality of food.
Cross-market and cross-industry direction "TechNet", providing technological support for the development of STI markets and high-tech industries through the formation of Digital, Smart, Virtual Factories of the Future.
Direction "TechNet" is dedicated to the development and application of one of the most important classes of "end-to-end technologies" - Advanced Manufacturing Technologies. These technologies include:
- Digital Design and Modeling as a combination of Computer-Aided Design (CAD) technologies; Mathematical Modeling, Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE, and High Performance Computing, HPC) and Optimization (Computer-Aided Optimization, CAO) - multiparameter, multi-criteria, multi-disciplinary, topological, topographic, size and shape optimization, etc. Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM), including the new generation of Computer-Aided Additive Manufacturing (CAAM); Product Data Management (PDM) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) technologies;
- New materials, including advanced alloys (superalloys), advanced polymers, advanced composites, advanced ceramics, metal powders and metal powder compositions, and metamaterials;
- Additive technologies, including 3D printers, techniques, approaches and ways of working with source materials, development and operation of consumables, and a suite of 3D printing services;
- CNC and hybrid technologies, including numerically controlled machine tools and equipment technologies, drive technology, and hybrid multifunctional machining technologies;
- industrial sensorics - implementation of "smart" sensors and control tools (controllers) in production equipment, in the room at the shop or factory level as a whole;
- robotics technologies, primarily industrial robots;
- Information systems of enterprise management (Industrial Control System - ICS, Manufacturing Execution System - MES, Enterprise Resource Planning - ERP, Enterprise Application Software - EAS);
- Big Data - generation, collection, storage, management, processing and transmission of big data;
- Industrial Internet.
The lecture aroused not fake interest among students, because modern education is undergoing strong changes, taking more and more new form constantly developing and responding to the challenges of the external environment.
