Rosatom’s enterprise JSC ETC GET opened School of Simulation at Don State Technical University

On September 28, 2023, the Engineering and Technology Center GET opened the School of Simulation at the Don State Technical University (DSTU) - the third school as part of the expansion of the company’s network of engineering and mathematical schools. “School of Simulation” project was launched last year - the corresponding centers are successfully operating at Kazan State Energy University and Tomsk Polytechnic University.

The School of Simulation is designed to promote the development of talented youth, i.e. senior students of DSTU seeking professional development in Russian mathematical simulation, and is also aimed at training specialists to work with the domestic technology of simulator building, created and used for 30 years by ETC GET.

Training at the School is carried out on the basis of the REPEAT software complex which is a model-oriented design and mathematical simulation environment. REPEAT is a completely import-independent development of the ETC GET which is used by design institutes, design bureaus and educational institutions to create a sovereign information environment. During training, DSTU students will be able to acquire the skills for developing models of power facilities and processes, creating digital twins, designing to increase the efficiency of power facilities, reducing costs of production processes and the number of downtime hours and incidents, as well as conducting virtual tests of the designed equipment.

The opening events of the School were attended by the representatives of Rusatom Service JSC, JSC ETC GET, DSTU Rector's Office, leading industrial enterprises, including leaders in the construction of new generation equipment, in the creation of spectral and thermal imaging equipment of the highest accuracy, in the manufacture of equipment for the oil and gas industry, etc. After the opening ceremony, Sergey Bukreev, the Director of GET LAB LLC, held a panel discussion “Digital Simulation for Modern Business” during which experts spoke about the importance of this technology in increasing the efficiency of enterprises.

“Highly qualified personnel have always been and remain Rosatom's key asset. We take a systematic approach to their training, starting from school, continuing in colleges and universities and then within the industry. I hope that the new School of Simulation of the Engineering and Technical Center GET will become an important link in our ecosystem of unlocking personnel potential, a place to acquire and broaden skills that meet the requirements of the time. And we plan to continue this work. The more technological and engineering schools will open, the more impetus for development this will give both to the nuclear industry and the country as a whole”, Tatyana Terentyeva, the Deputy General Director for Personnel of Rosatom State Corporation, congratulated her colleagues on the opening.

“Our cooperation with the high-tech company GET is reaching a new level. Today, life and development in general are impossible without digitalization. Our graduates work in major companies of various industries, including nuclear power. Without mathematical simulation, it is impossible to implement projects in the field of medicine, bioengineering, construction and many other industries. We will look for new common ground and develop cooperation”, said Besarion Meskhi, the Rector of DSTU.

“In a very short period of time since the signing of the cooperation agreement with DSTU, we have managed to do a lot. We very much hope that the School of Simulation we created will be a powerful impetus for the development of simulation both in the university and in our company. We highly appreciate the potential for cooperation with DSTU and, taking into account the multidisciplinary nature of the university, we are optimistic about the possibility of expanding our further cooperation”, said Alexey Kovalevich, the Managing Director of JSC ETC GET.

The “School of Simulation” is implemented within the framework of the “Simulation Factory” nuclear industry project. The project is aimed at training young specialists with an appropriate set of competencies to work in the field of simulation in the nuclear power industry. The main goal of the project is to form a permanent personnel pool from among students and graduates of flagship universities in the regions of the Russian Federation who have successfully passed a joint training program for taking part in the implementation of international projects of JSC ETC GET.


JSC Engineering and Technology Center GET (part of the Rusatom Service JSC group of companies) is a recognized leader in the simulator building and mathematical simulation for Russian and foreign nuclear power plants plants (NPP), thermal power plants (TPP), training centers (TC) and other energy facilities.

Over 30 years of experience, the company has created over 50 simulators as part of projects across the world, including countries in Europe and Asia. JSC ETC GET comprises GET LAB LLC, an IT company created in 2022 with broad competencies in developing computer software and solving complex problems in the field of computer technology. By combining experience and innovation, we implement digital solutions for the smooth operation of industrial facilities in Russia and around the world.

Rosatom State Corporation is a global multidisciplinary tech conglomerate that brings together resources across energy, mechanical engineering, and construction industries. It includes more than 350 enterprises and organizations in which 330 thousand people work. Since 2018, it has been implementing a unified digital strategy (UDS), involving a multidimensional work in a number of areas. In the area of “Participation in the digitalization of the Russian Federation”, it is the center of competence of the federal project “Digital Technologies” of the national program “Digital Economy of the Russian Federation”; it also acts as a leading company in the implementation of government “road maps” for the development of high-tech areas “New Industrial Software” and “Quantum Computing”; since 2021 it implements the first Russian project for the import substitution of a whole class of industrial software - systems of engineering analysis and mathematical simulation (CAE-class), since 2022 it acts as a a project coordinator for the creation of a Russian PLM system of heavy class. In the area of “Digital Products”, it develops and launches digital products for industrial enterprises - there are more than 60 digital products in Rosatom's portfolio. In the area of "”Internal digitalization”, it ensures the digitalization of NPP construction processes, digital import substitution and the creation of a single digital platform for the nuclear industry. As part of UDS, Rosatom is also working to develop end-to-end digital technologies, including data technologies, the Internet of Things, manufacturing technologies, virtual and augmented reality, neurotechnology and artificial intelligence, wireless communication technologies, robotics and sensorics, and others. In the area of “Digital Competencies and Culture”, Rosatom implements educational programs to improve the digital literacy of its employees, and develops industry-specific production and technology platforms and arranges professional skills competitions on the topic of digitalization.
