The premier 3D laboratory in Ukraine has opened at Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute to train professionals in the field of metrology and technical measurements for the machine-building industry, as well as other sectors, the institute’s press service has informed, Interfax-Ukraine reports.
“Our task, the task of the business is to create new jobs and enterprises that would allow university graduates to land decent jobs in Ukraine. Every university should have a applicatory laboratory. Our task for the near future is to find corporations with hands-on experience in particular areas and that will cooperate with the university to establish new laboratories. Students should be able to apply their their theoretical knowledge to practice, even if they are mistaken,” the head of the supervisory board at Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute Vasyl Khmelnytsky said.
According to the report, “certification of measuring equipment for Ukrainian businesses will be carried out at the center, and students and professionals will be able to study the performance of equipment for 3D scanning and reverse modeling, as well as new 3D printers.”
According to the Chancellor of Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute Yevhen Sokol, nowadays graduates should be able to effectively apply their theoretical knowledge they receive, and this is impossible without modern equipment.
"The state has already provided what it could provide, so today the only opportunity is business that is vitally interested in getting good and modern staff. It can support higher education at the world level. It is the combination of business and education that helps us open such laboratories, which will teach our students with the help of the most advanced equipment," Sokol said.
The laboratory is equipped with a universal tool for three-dimensional measurements and digitization, a portable coordinate-measuring system for high-precision measurements at extremely long distances, a 3D scanner, and a 3D printer.
