Jamilya Idrisova, Senior Lecturer of the Higher School of Technosphere Safety, presented the programs of the Institute of Civil Engineering. She paid special attention to the rather new and unique «Emergency Preparedness and Response» program. This is the world’s first program on emergency preparedness and response to nuclear and radiological accidents. It was developed jointly with the IAEA and Rosatom.

Representatives of the Institute of Energy told about the implemented international programs: Natalia Donmez, coordinator of foreign students of IE, Maxim Konyushin, coordinator of the international educational program «Nuclear Power Engineering», Ekaterina Sokolova, deputy director for international activities, and Yaroslav Vladimirov, coordinator of the program «Power Plant Engineering»

Our university holds high positions in the subject rankings for business and economics. We offer a wide range of programs in English for international students, as well as give them the opportunity to take internships in Russian companies and become a competitive professional in the international and Russian market, said Nikita Lukashevich, Deputy Director for International Activities of the Institute of Industrial Management, Economics and Trade.

This year, for the first time since the pandemic, we are holding the summer school in a face-to-face format. More than 35 courses are waiting for students in seven areas, such as: engineering and natural sciences, digital and information technologies, energy technologies, social sciences, business and management, and, of course, Russian language and culture. Traditionally, a significant part of the schedule consists of a cultural program. We hope that participation in summer school programs will be an interesting and useful experience for our students, said Deputy Head of the Department of International Educational Programs and Academic Mobility Zarina Asadova.

Also joining the online broadcast were international students of SPbPU who shared their experience and impressions of studying at the university.

It is a great honor for me to participate and speak at today’s event, as I am a first-year Master’s student at Polytechnic University majoring in Microelectronics of Info-Communication Systems. I chose Polytechnic because it has a high THE rating and is one of the most internationalized universities in Russia, said Liyuan Zhang, winner of the Open Doors: Russian Scholarship Project.

You can fill in the application form in your personal account. Admission is open since March 25.
