I Higher Education in Belarus. My University

Belarus is a country with a wide network of higher educational establishments. To be admitted to an institution of higher learning a student has to pass a series of written tests. Grades in the certificate of secondary education are also taken into account.

The number of higher educational institutions that train specialists for agriculture is not large.

The Belarusian State Agrarian Technical University is the leading higher educational establishment in agriculture and the main one for the specialization in Agro engineering. The BSATU (the original name - the Belarusian Institute of Mechanization of Agriculture) was established in 1954.

About 15000 young people get their education at full-time and extramural departments.

The University includes 9 departments (agro mechanical, agro power, farm machinery maintenance, business and management, the department of mechanization and electrification, humanities and ecology, andpreparatory department), 41 chairs and 43 affiliated branches in industry, scientific industrial centers of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus and research and development institutions that train specialists for the agro-industrial complex.

The Department of Mechanization was founded in 2007. It is the legal successor of the extramural department that was functioning at the University in the period 1956-1993. It trains engineers in the following specialties: technical support of farm production processes, technical support of farm products storage and processing, repair service in agriculture, and the logistics of the agro-industrial complex.

The academic year is divided into two terms. The teaching process is based on lectures, practical classes, seminars, and lab works. The students study many subjects: math, physics, and informatics, technology of metals, tractors and vehicles, agronomy, engineering mechanics, technology and technical support of farm products processing, and foreign languages. Industrial practice activities such as agronomy, crop cultivation, and livestock breeding are organized at the training farm and some industrial enterprises. Graduates of the department can work at different enterprises of the Republic.


II Engineering

Engineering is one of the most ancient occupations in history. The first tool-makers who chipped narrows and spears from rocks were the forerunners of modern mechanical engineers.

Almost everything we use in modern life is made by engineers.

Engineers use theory to produce practical answers. The design solution must be of reasonable price, safe, and reliable.

Engineers solve problems in a methodical way. They define a problem; design a solution, test it, and then evaluate it. If a good solution is found they communicate it.

Engineering is often defined as making practical application of theoretical sciences. Technological and industrial progress depends on the scientist, the engineer and the technologist, who make up an essential triangle.

The principle work of the engineer is design. He has to design products, machines, and production systems. The most important function of the engineer is to integrate the work of this essential triangle. His interest must be in combining the abstract-theoretical world and the technical –practical world.

In the recent years engineering has changed a lot. We need a person who can lead teams, solve problems, and can be a creative designer with a keen sense of market realities, and a practical individual.


III Mechanical engineer

Mechanical engineering is one of the areas of engineering. It has been recognized as a separate branch of engineering since the formation of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers of Great Britain in 1847.

Mechanical engineering deals with the design, construction, and operation of the machines and devices of all kinds, and with research and sciences. They are at the forefront of technology: pressing the limits of material capability, developing new materials of construction, specifying complex machines and doing all of this with the most sophisticated design techniques. A farm engineer does not finish his education when he receives his diploma but he is studying new developments constantly.

The demand for qualified mechanical engineers is high. They have a wide range of job opportunities: they may be management, sales, development, research, design, or production engineers.

The Department of Mechanization of the BSATU trains mechanical engineers. Today’s farming is highly developed. Many agricultural processes are mechanized and the most modern farm machinery may be used today. Technical and managerial skills of agricultural engineers are used in the industry.

The specialists of the department are trained to work at the agricultural enterprises of different forms of property: industrial enterprises, processing plants, project-design, research centers, and educational establishments.
