LG Electronics to Equip HSE Computer Classroom with LG UltraWide 34WK500 Universal Monitors
LG Electronics and the Higher School of Economics have announced the launch of a special collaborative educational project. A new computer classroom will provide students of engineering, industrial design, and computer programming the opportunity to study the most modern tools and methods of design using equipment designed for rapidly developing disciplines and the higher technological demands of their results. With a 21:9 aspect ratio, these monitors are currently the most conducive to solving such complex tasks at work and in school.
The challenges of the modern economy and the changing shape of industry require new approaches to engineering education. Indeed, the avalanche-like growth of new technologies in the industry requires a new type of engineer. Rising to these new demands, the HSE Tikhonov Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics (MIEM HSE) offers project-based training. It is impossible to train a qualified engineer if he or she is not involved in hands-on projects. And projects, in turn, should not be envisioned within the department, but come from the real tech sector. With this approach, MIEM HSE aims to become a kind of hub concentrating on the demands of leading companies in industry and business in order to produce not just technical solutions, but specialists creating these solutions.
Everyone can reap the benefits of the LG UltraWide 34WK500 monitor and make use of its capabilities in their work. Its ultra-thin design fits perfectly into almost any workspace, and its multi-tasking functions help users complete tasks more quickly and easily. The decision to equip HSE’s computer classrooms with LG UltraWide 34WK500 monitors was made on the basis of the monitor’s technical features and their advantages. The expanded screen size allows users to more effectively complete a variety of tasks, ranging from editing text and graphics to image processing and video. Furthermore, the UltraWide monitor (2560x1080 mm.) with Full HD capabilities provides more screen space, thereby allowing users to display multiple windows at a time and view more images. With a wider viewing angle, the IPS display supports 99% of the sRGB color spectrum, and OnScreen Control technology provides easy access to monitor settings. Additionally, the ergonomic design increases the stability of the base: the curved monitor stand can be adjusted to change the tilt, height and angle of the monitor for more convenient work.
‘Ultra-wide screens, which are very popular among gamers and lovers of modern cinema, are not just good for entertainment. We are pleased to offer them as a useful tool in the educational process, and we hope that they will be appreciated by future specialists who will be the future of the Russian economy. The positive feedback we have received from students suggests further prospects for the use of LG UltraWide monitors in modern universities,’ said Andrei Gospodynko, Head of Sales (Department of Monitors and Personal TV) of LG Electronics Rus.
Professor Evgenii Krouk, Acting Director and Academic Supervisor of MIEM HSE, also lauded the new collaboration. ‘Cooperation with large companies such as LG allows us not only to expose our students to advanced technology, but also to develop and undertake future scientific research projects in partnership with the company. The cooperation between LG and MIEM HSE in scientific research and the development of projects in electronics, the internet of things, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality will indisputably have a positive impact on our ability to both better train new specialists and digitally transform our industries and economy,’ he says.
