23.06.2017 Awards

A solemn ceremony of Best Student Award and Best PhD Student Award was held at the International Cultural Center on June 21. In 2017, the honorary titles were awarded six students and six PhD students who showed outstanding results in academic and research activities, promising scientific developments and excellent knowledge of foreign languages.

 

This year 45 students and 20 PhD students have applied to the contest for the honorary titles. The honorary title Best Student I, II and III degrees were awarded six students and 14 people became laureates of the competition. Six doctoral students were called the Best PhD Students.

‘I congratulate you with all my heart, I wish you not to stop on the successes achieved.

I invite graduate students to postgraduate study. I wish PhD students successfully defend their theses and continue their scientific career and, probably, do higher doctoral theses. Move ahead and don’t pay attention to obstacles!’

Deputy Vice-Rector for Research and Innovations Roman Ostvald congratulated the students on behalf of the University leadership. He shared in 2003 he was a laureate of the competition too.

According to the competition policy full-time students are eligible, whose average academic scores are 4.5 and higher. Achievements in research, knowledge of foreign languages, successes in academic, public, cultural activities and sports were also evaluated. In addition, 25 students scored the most points at the evaluation stages of research and the knowledge of foreign languages made presentations at the scientific session in order to get in the final stage.

The Best Student I degree was awarded Alexander Petrusev (the Institute of Power Engineering).  

 

‘At the scientific session I presented a solar tracker and a concentrator – devices for the improvement of solar installation efficiency,’ told the student.

PhD students should present both their research achievements and wins in scientific competitions, grant contests for young scientists and own scientific inventions. Ten PhD students scored the most points at the evaluation stages of research and the knowledge of foreign languages made presentations at the scientific session in order to get in the final stage too.

The title Best PhD Student I degree was awarded Alexander Ni (the Institute of Power Engineering). His research project is devoted to mathematical modeling of multidimensional problems of complex heat and mass transfer with phase transitions.

 

‘I learnt about this competition last year and filed documents at the same time but did not pass.

This year I have purposefully applied to the competition, counting, at least, on the third place. The scientific session was very difficult, therefore I was a little surprised for this victory,’ shared the PhD student.

The names of the competition winners will be included in the Honorary Gallery of TPU. The laureates of I, II and III degree are granted with a one-off stipend of the Rector. Master students also received letters of recommendations for doctoral studies.
