Summer School in Finland

2Students and Ph.D. students from SUT, apart from studying, taking part in public activities of the university, also participate in the programs of academic mobility. The Ph.D. student of the second year Almeri Khamed from Yemen spent his holidays participating in Summer School, which took place in Finland, on 3-19 August, 2016. This is what he told us about it:

“A lot of universities in Europe and Russia organize Summer Schools. This is a good way to present your university abroad and attract students from other countries. I went to Europe for the first time this summer and took part in the Summer School organized by the university of Jyväskylä in Finland (The 26thJyväskylä SummerSchool).This city is one of the most important technological clusters of the country with development centers of large companies situated in it.

The Jyväskylä University left me a lot of bright impressions. Large and beautiful campuses, comfortable audiences, a spacious computer lab, an excellent refectory overlooking the lake.

This year the following directions were offered: Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Mathematics, Statistics and Information Systems. I attended two courses – Online Social Media Analytics and Superconducting Quantum Computer. The classes were held by lecturers from USA, Japan and Finland. Online Social Media Analytics turned out to be much more interesting than I expected. The lecturer told us in details about the monitor system and social media analytics.

Despite the fact that the main aim of the Summer School was education, the members of the School organized a social program, thanks to which we had an opportunity to communicate and spend time together - we went on sight-seeing tours and voyages. Moreover, we went to a traditional sauna, watched Finnish films, participated in sport games. The best advice I can give to those students who are planning to visit Summer Schools is to get acquainted with other students as it is the best way to remember your trip for a long time!”

Closing of the Summer school “Internet of Things”

The formal closing of the Summer school of SPb SUT, called “Internet of Things” took place on the 22nd of July. The students of the Engineer School Miluoki were granted merited certificates in successful mastering the program.Tutors and volunteers, who actively took part in organizing Summer school, were granted notes of acknowledgement.

During the last two weeks, apart from  taking part in exciting activities as part of the “Internet of things”, students got acquainted with the university and our beautiful city. At first, the students were a bit scared, as it was their first time in Russia and they didn’t know the language, but our volunteers were eager to help them in difficult situations and accompany them during the excursions. The first excursion on the rivers and canals with the exit to the offshore of the river Neva was held during the first day of the Summer school. It helped our guests to dispel their fears, Russians turned out to be friendly and welcoming and the city itself pulverized them with its beauty and greatness.

Having overcome all the 211 steps of the spiral stairs of the Isaac’s Cathedral, the students enjoyed the panoramic views of the city from a bird’s eye view.

The weekends also didn’t simply pass by for them – the students devoted their free time to visiting the suburbs of SPb – Tsarskoe Selo and Peterhof. The breathtaking palaces and fountains, situated on a vast territory where one can walk and enjoy the beauty of gardens and sculptures for hours, didn’t leave our foreign students indifferent.

Moreover, the students visited the Hermitage. The masterpieces of outstanding masters, artists and sculptors, the interior decoration of the Winter Palace – all this made the bright final point in getting acquainted with Saint-Petersburg.

 

Two weeks passed very quickly. All the studying and free time was filled with discoveries and emotions. The students said that even rainy weather didn’t spoil their impressions about the city and the university. The students thanked our volunteers for warm welcoming, brilliant organization of education and entertainment and promised to return in 2017 – for the next Summer school.

The excursion of American students to Yandex

On the 13 July, 2016 the students of the Summer School “The Internet of Things” visited the international Russian IT-company “Yandex”. The excursion was guided by the member of staff, Ph. D. candidate of the department of communications networks (SUT) Andrey Solozobov.

“Yandex” company occupies three floors in business-centre “Benua”, which is famous for its design and its location on the river embankment. The fifth floor is occupied by the offices of  “Yandex Money”, an access to which, as to any other vault, is strictly forbidden. That is why the excursion took place on the third and fourth floors only.

In the beginning of the excursion Andrey told the students about the company and its widely used services. Later the students were offered coffee, tea and snacks. Soon after the tea-break the students continued their excursion – they passed by unusual glass rooms, each of which has modern equipment and soft armchairs.  Every room has its name, connected with Saint-Petersburg. For example, one of the convention halls is named “Smolny”. Andrey told the students that “Yandex” office is open 24/7. There is no fixed time for the employees to start or to finish their working day.

In the end of the excursion every student got a present from “Yandex” – a designer memo pad and an eco-friendly pen made from paper.
