HSE University students have taken part in the ‘Uzbekistan—Land of Tolerance’ International Summer School. The event was held in July in Tashkent at the Mirzo Ulugbek National University of Uzbekistan, a partner of HSE University. The HSE University students shared their impressions of the local sights and hospitality.
All five participants from Russia received awards at the Fifth International Economics Olympiad for high school students. The students won three gold and two silver awards. Dmitry Monakhov, who graduated from the HSE Lyceum this year, received a silver medal and shared his impressions of the event with the HSE News Service.
Over three days, the participants learnt about the main subject areas of the master's programmes of the HSE School of Electronic Engineering. About three dozen undergraduate students and graduates from different Russian universities took part in the summer school. Leading MIEM teachers and visiting lecturers from Russian companies were among those who spoke about promising areas of development in electronics, photonics, quantum technologies and the Internet of Things (IoT).
‘One of HSE University’s Strategic Goals is to Make Quality Higher Education Accessible to Students from all Corners of Our Country’
The first graduation ceremony for the joint HSE University and Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) Bachelor’s Programme in Economics took place in Vladivostok. 43 students were each awarded two diplomas. The programme, launched at the School of Economics and Management of Far Eastern Federal University in 2018, gives students the opportunity to master Russia's strongest programme and earn a diploma from HSE University without leaving the Far East. HSE University currently offers 11 double degree programmes at undergraduate and graduate level with nine Russian universities.
This year, for the first time, all first-year students took independent exams as part of the university-wide Data Culture project. These exams checked the level of digital literacy, algorithmic thinking and programming, as well as data analysis and artificial intelligence skills. HSE students and Head of the Data Culture project Olga Podolskaya spoke about the exams and preparation process.
The HSE University Faculty of Chemistry opened three years ago, and its first intake of undergraduate students is set to graduate in 2023. These students have already demonstrated impressive results in their research—half of second and third-year students have publications in journals indexed in WoS and Scopus, almost a third of which are in Q1 journals. Andrey Yaroslavtsev, Head of the Chemistry programme and Academic of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), told the HSE University News Service about the secret of this success.
HSE University is represented in more subjects (10—an increase from 8 last year) in the Shanghai Global Ranking of Academic Subjects than any other Russian university.
On July 11, the last day of classes, graduates of the bachelor’s and master’s programmes in Fashion held a fashion show at the HSE Art and Design School. Young designers presented collections that reflected their personal experiences—from contemplations of difficult teenage years to worries about modern realities.
The new reality presents a number of issues for international students—particularly those joining HSE University in 2022. What changes will there be in the university’s education system? What will happen if a student is unable to come to Moscow by September 1? What is the university doing to help international students adapt? Vice Rector Ivan Prostakov spoke to the HSE News Service to answer these questions and more.
The results of the first round of the Student Start-Up Competition were announced on July 5. The expert jury selected 650 winners from 2,300 submissions. Among the winners were 16 HSE University students, who will each receive 1 million roubles to develop their business projects.
