Metinvest Polytechnic will cooperate with mine rescue equipment manufacturer DEZEGA

The first non-state mining and smelting university Metinvest Polytechnic founded by Metinvest Group has concluded a memorandum of cooperation with DEZEGA, international designer and manufacturer of mine rescue equipment.

Opportunities to gain skills in using life-saving and health-saving equipment will be available to students and teachers of the new university, as well as to those wishing to upgrade their qualifications in this area.

DEZEGA specialists will be involved in developing the Metinvest Polytechnic's occupational health and safety courses, including those in mining environments. The students and lecturers of the university will be able to get an insight into global trends in the design, use and selection of personal respiratory protection equipment, and learn lifesaving techniques in practice. For this purpose, laboratory and practical training sessions using DEZEGA equipment are planned to be included in the educational programmes.

In addition, the cooperation will include development of joint educational programmes for students and teachers, including on-the-job training programmes for the university students. It is also planned to conduct joint testing and trials of respiratory protection equipment developed or produced by DEZEGA within the framework of dual education.

To improve the staff qualifications of Metinvest Polytechnic and DEZEGA, the parties intend to exchange training materials and scientific publications.

DEZEGA is the world leader in design and manufacture of breathing equipment for mining and rescue work. DEZEGA has a management company in Kyiv, production facilities in Asia and Europe, a research and development centre as well as regional representative offices in five countries worldwide. Every day, over 500 thousand DEZEGA self-rescuers protect underground workers in more than 40 countries worldwide against respiratory hazards in emergency situations.

Metinvest Polytechnic is the university of the future providing new broad opportunities for young people. The university was established in June 2020 by Metinvest Group. The key goals of the project are bringing European-level higher education to Ukraine, and developing a new format of higher education in our country. The university will be open for people who have chosen technical professions that are in demand in the labour market. Metinvest Group will guarantee first job, financial and other incentives for top students.
