Last year, ITMO University launched ITMO.STARS, a program for talented prospective students with insufficient Unified State Exam scores. Instead, the applicants could prove their mettle by showcasing their self-made software, methodology, or a scientific, social, or business project. In 2018, the University enrolled 14 winners of ITMO.STARS. We spoke to some of them to learn about their first year at ITMO.
Teens in Tech, a school of technological entrepreneurship for high school students, has just wrapped up at ITMO University’s Faculty of Technological Management and Innovations. Over the course of four days, the students worked to create their own business projects, learning about innovation business and technological entrepreneurship along the way. Read on to find all about the completed projects by the participants of this year’s spring Teens in Tech.
Project activities allow students to more creatively approach problem-solving and trains them for work in business environments and promotion of their own, and practically useful, products. To enhance the applications of project-oriented approach in education, ITMO University’s Faculty of Physics and Engineering launched a contest for filling of the positions of developers and mentors of educational projects in the subject area of physics. The winners will receive financial support and the opportunity to bring their ideas into reality both at ITMO and the Sirius educational center in Sochi.
Last year, ITMO University and the JetBrains company launched the “Software Engineering” corporate Master’s program. Apart from completing traditional practical assignments, its students also get to work on projects under the guidance of JetBrains’ developers and representatives of its partner companies in order to present their results at the end of each semester. We’ve asked some of them about working with leading developers from major companies, as well as the advantages of following a corporate Master’s program.
On March 16-22, a group of ITMO University students will go to Tornio (Finland), where they will join their peers from Norway and Finland to work on cases for European commercial companies. The trip will be organized as part of BRIDGE, a new project that brought together Norwegian, Finnish and Russian universities to train innovation brokers
Early in 2017, ITMO staff have developed a unique methodology for the project-based learning of nanotechnologies. Since that time, it has been tried and tested by the Sirius educational center, federal networks of kids’ technoparks Quantorium, and, starting from this academic year, have been rolled out in ITMO University itself. The technique has also recently been recognized by the Government of St. Petersburg’s Committee on Science and Higher Education, who awarded it an honorary prize for being the ‘Best Innovative Product’. Iana Muzychenko, Vice Dean of the Faculty of Physics and Engineering, and Mikhail Mukhin, Head of the Faculty’s Nanocenter, met with ITMO.NEWS to discuss why project-based learning is so effective and how it motivates students to approach unconventional scientific tasks.
A group of ITMO University teachers spent two weeks at MIT doing an internship on modern educational techniques. The purpose of the internship was to help its participants gain practical teaching skills and answer some important questions such as what are the ways to increase students’ productivity, how to implement online learning in the classroom, and why is it important to give students the opportunity to put the acquired knowledge into practice?
Over the course of the “Big Challenges” summer camp organized by the Sirius education center, ITMO University’s Faculty of Physics and Engineering lecturers trained promising school students in nanotechnologies research methods. Under the tutors’ helpful guidance, camp participants developed two high-level scientific projects: they created ordered nanostructures arrays for new generation devices and designed a highly sensitive graphene-based gas sensor. By doing that, the young inventors learned to not only follow complex and extremely convoluted scientific instructions, but also to work in teams, be independent in their search for problem solutions, and commercialize their research results.
