UTMN Supervisory Board Approved the Work Plan for 2018

Project 5-100 4 December 2017
At the meeting on 1 December, UTMN Supervisory Board headed by Governor of Tyumen Region, Vladimir Yakushev, approved the work plan for 2018 academic year.  

The key issue of the new plan became individualization of education. This year, four UTMN institutes have dared to undertake the bold experiment of implementing individualized educational trajectories. By 2020, the entire university is expected to implement new educational model, including individual trajectories.

“We are talking about the shift in the educational paradigm. Today, nobody is interested in mass education, but high quality individualized education is in demand,” commented UTMN Rector Valery Falkov. “Our decision is based on the belief that everyone is able to make free and informed decisions and, consequently, to correct its individual educational trajectory. We are sure we can give each student the skills he or she personally needs”. 

Another important issue that will be discussed at the Supervisory Board meeting in 2018 is the UTMN Polytechnic School, established in 2015 in partnership with Gazprom Neft PJSC, and results of its work. 

And the third issue is the preparation to the International Council meeting. “We agreed that in October, we will announce the results of the 5-100 Project in advance in front of the Supervisory Board members, who will give us important comments and advices that will help us present more elaborated report to the International Council. The emphasize will be made on two strategically important academic projects – the School of Advanced Studies and the X-bio,” commented Valery Falkov

The UTMN Supervisory Board members expressed their wish to conduct another face-to-face meeting at the university to have a closer look at its material and technical base, achievements and transformations have been made. “It shows how eager the Supervisory Board members are to assist the university’s development,” said Rector. 

Drawing up the results, the Board’s chairman, Governor of Tyumen Region, Vladimir Yakushev, thanked the Board members for productive work, thoughtful solutions of important issues that will allow to lay the groundwork for the university’s fruitful work for the next year.   

The Supervisory Board is one of the UTMN governing bodies. It includes delegates from the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation, representatives of such major Russian companies as Gazprom, Sibur, HMS Group as well as renowned scientists.
