Skoltech announces “Technology Management in Energy” professional training program for power industry executives

Skoltech starts recruiting a new cohort for “Technology Management in Energy” — a professional retraining program for power industry executives. The students will learn about the key global industry trends and try their hand at implementing their innovative solutions. The training program, which is unique for Russia, leverages on Skoltech’s advanced technology competencies in energy, mathematics and engineering, as well as long-standing experience in bringing cutting-edge technology to the industries. Program graduates include 100 winners of the national Energy Leaders competition.

The students will learn to identify and analyze key challenges, transform technological processes, implement innovations, bring new technology products to the market, develop business digitization projects, build project teams, and enhance their competencies.

The program will last from April 1 to October 23. The curriculum totaling 250 academic hours will include 20 days of offline classes, on-campus technology project work with access to Skoltech’s research infrastructure, two trips to high-tech industrial facilities, and a business game simulating the actions of real energy market players.

The training will take place at Skoltech, an international university rated by Nature among the world’s top 100 young universities of the world and honored with UNESCO’s Prix Versailles Award in the Campuses category.

The graduates will receive a Skoltech professional training certificate.

The presentation of the program will take place on February 21 at 11 a.m. as part of the public talk “The Future of the Russian Electric Power Industry. Embracing Innovation”, where Skoltech professors Elena Gryazina and Dmitry Titov together with industry representatives will discuss the key trends of technology management in the energy sector, focusing on such questions as: What makes technology implementation less effective? Why are consumers increasingly unhappy about the electricity supply service? What can transition to in-house generation lead to? How to ensure the sustainability of infrastructure companies in the changing power industry?

You can join the discussion online or offline (registration required) at the Skoltech campus: Skolkovo Innovation Center, Bolshoy Boulevard, 30, bldg 1.
