This year Polytechnic has turned 122 years old. This is a truly gigantic period for a higher education institution. Today we are again touching the rich history of the University, we are remembering our great predecessors, whose lives and activities were closely connected with Polytechnic University; it would be no exaggeration to say that during its history the university has educated a pleiad of outstanding scientists and engineers who made the national science famous!
But life doesn’t standstill. Polytechnic University is changing along with the rest of the world, instantly responding to the global challenges of the economy, science, and education, and even outpacing them. Today, at a time of challenges not only for our country but for the entire world, the University has been able to increase its scientific and educational potential.
Last year, Polytechnic University repeatedly won prestigious prizes and was the winner of St. Petersburg, All-Russian, and international competitions. Our research activities annually yield results in the form of new technological ideas, developments, and scientific discoveries.
Polytechnic’s birthday traditionally unites not only students and teachers, but also thousands of people from different cities and countries, companies and universities, and scientific and artistic organizations. And today I would like to congratulate our great Polytechnic brotherhood.
