Training of scientific workers of the department begins with working with first-year students. To work with excellent students and gifted students at the department a scientific circle "Hydropower Installations" was created. Each year, the main disciplines - "Pumps and pumping stations" and "Hydroelectric Power Stations" are held Olympiad among students. On the basis of scientific achievements obtained in a scientific circle and at competitions, scientific articles are being prepared. In the performance of qualifying works and master's theses, scientific articles are effectively used and their proposals are introduced into production.

To replenish the teaching staff of the department from the young graduates of the specialties of the department are selected the most talented in order to conduct educational activities in the department. Together with teaching, they conduct research and development work at hydropower facilities (pumping stations and hydroelectric power plants).
