R&D and Innovation
Our innovative centers ultimately have a combination of IT and software engineers, scientists, researchers and technicians who carry out a full DSTU Research and Development strategy as part of global University Development Programme 2020.
In addition to our R&D centers, we invest in partnerships with educational centers all over the world in order to create the next generation of world-class experts. We have established collaborative partnerships with universities worldwide, investing more than 100 000 € in recent years to support joint programmes at DSTU and partner HEIs.
Active involvement in the work of R&D centers provides students a great chance to start their careers straight from the university and continue work in one of the R&D based partner companies.
Russian-Chinese Center for innovations and high technologies transfer
The center is located both in China (the city of Yantai) and in Russia (Rostov-on-Don, DSTU) and aimed at widening cooperation in the following areas: creation and promotion of high technological products, biomedicine, innovative materials, highly-precise electronic devices, mechatronics, radio electronics, joint developments in aquaculture and joint ventures establishment for sustainable development of national and regional economics.
