GEOLOGY EDUCATION IN RUSSIA: HISTORICAL ASPECT

  • Shaidurov, V.
Abstract:
Over a period of the 18th – 19th centuries, the two-level system of personnel training for the mining industry developed in the Russian Empire. The system comprised mining schools that opened during the period mentioned in the main centers of ferrous industry and nonferrous metallurgy development (the Urals, Siberia, Donbass, Poland). A higher vocational institution was the Saint Petersburg School of Mines that had close educational links with regions. The system of training of geologists and engineers allowed Russia to become one of the leaders in the mining and metallurgical industries. Russian mining educational institutions were at the same level as the Mining Academy of Freiberg (Germany). This article will discuss the key aspects of the geologist and engineer training process in Russia. The historical experience may be leveraged today to optimize the educational process in geologist training.
