Several Maritime universities in Russia to obtain the status of national research universities, it will increase the level of industry education of future professionals, the rector of Kaliningrad state technical University Vladimir Volkogon.

«We believe that in a number of national research universities must stand and universities providing Maritime activities and the development of this industry. Several universities that focus in the country should receive appropriate government support and elevated to the status of national research universities,» said Volkogon in an interview with RIA Novosti.

He noted that when the status of national research University the University receives significant financial state support for the establishment of a scientific base, modern infrastructure, renovation and improvement of personnel.

In addition, according to the rector, the status of national University will help to eliminate contradictions between the requirements that are set by the Ministry of transport or Ministry of agriculture, which are subject to the institutes, and international requirements for the training of seafarers.

«The existing rules of certification of sea specialists developed by the international Maritime organization (IMO), it is often impossible to reconcile with the requirements of state standards approved by the Ministry of education and are binding. Universities, endowed with the status of Federal, have the right to form educational programs alone,» rector added.

Currently, apart from University, it includes the Baltic state Academy of fishing fleet, Kaliningrad marine fishing College and St. Petersburg sea fishing College.
