MAI at MAKS: International Aviation and Space Salon Has Been Launched in Zhukovsky
On August 27, the XIV International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2019 began its work in Zhukovsky. This year, Moscow Aviation Institute (National Research University) is presented at once at six venues of the Air Show. The diverse MAI program at MAKS is relevant both for specialists in the aerospace industry, and for everyone who is interested in modern technology. The university participates in scientific and business programs, organizes a program of events for Students’ Day on August 30, and other activities for all participants of MAKS-2019.
MAI main exhibition area at MAKS is presented in Pavilion D2. Here, the university demonstrates its developments in a number of relevant areas of the aerospace industry.

The joint exposition of MAI, UAC and Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) demonstrates the work within the framework of the Russian-Chinese project of wide-body long-range aircraft CR939. In 2017, MAI together with SJTU launched targeted master's degree programs with the aim of creating a personnel reserve for the Russian-Chinese project. Visitors to the Air Show will be able to find out the details of the MAI-SJTU program’s three majors: “Design of Aircraft Structures from Polymer Composite Materials”, “Product Lifecycle Management Technologies for the Design of Modern Aircraft” and “Propulsion Engineering”.
