Short description of the organization (max 12 lines): Don State Technical University (DSTU) is the biggest dynamically developing centre of science, education and culture in the south of Russia. In was founded in 1930. Nowadays about 18 000 students, including 300 foreigners from 58 countries, and 150 postgraduates get education in 60 specialties at 16 faculties. DSTU has always had close links with production enterprises. Among its partners there are Rostselmash Company (a well-known manufacturer of agricultural machinery), Russia, JSC “Rostvertol” (Rostov Helicopter Plant), Russia, LLC 'Manufacturing company 'Novocherkassk Electric Locomotive Building Plant' Russia, scientific production company PHYWE System GmbH & Co., Germany, and others. The team of the Sociohuman Sciences Department is conducting fundamental research on linguosociocultural modeling of new knowledge transfer process in the foreign language environment and is working on several projects. Our team is not large (7-8 persons), but very creative, hard-working and open-minded. Our team is headed by two highly qualified scientists - Ph.D. in Linguistics and Ph.D. in Science, professors. Our research interests are involved with cultural linguistics, geopedagogics, engineering education, ICT.
Expertise offered Our team proposes five projects: 1) Engineering education space impact on the knowledge economy making in Russia on the ground of the network information-communication model. Expected outcome - to establish a network interaction model and a portal. 2) Geopedagogics as a tool of the innovative educational policy of the states cohesion in the global world. Expected outcome - to develop a new methodology and a set of techniques. 3) Engineering education space and its role in the mentality-making of the North-Caucasians on the ground of the portal. Expected outcome - to establish a portal of engineering research elite. 4) Linguosociocultural modeling of a new knowledge transfer process in the foreign language environment with the application of the cutting-edge ICT. Expected outcome - to develop a model and a set of techniques. 5) Upbringing of the Russian innovative economy engineering research elite on the ground of the up-to-date educational ICT . Expected outcome - to establish a portal of Engineering Research Elite (EnREl), to found an e-journal of engineering research elite. But we are ready to work on other projects as well.
