The partners are determined to build an efficient system for training IT specialists that can be scaled up to other universities. As stated in the agreement, ITMO students will now on be able to participate in projects developed by members of the Association of Major Software and Equipment Consumers (AMSEC). In their turn, representatives of member companies will join the university’s team as lecturers, heads of practical training, and industry experts.
The Material Science Communication School, which took place at ITMO in early September, brought together 35 students and young scientists, as well as top-notch experts in materials science and science communication from Rusnano, ITMO, and the National University of Science and Technology MISiS. Within three days, participants listened to experts’ views on the future of science and its popularization, as well as developed communication strategies for their projects. Here are the highlights from the school.
ITMO University and Istochnik, a Russian-based battery manufacturer, partnered up to open a new corporate track that will let students delve deep into the processes of battery production, tackle associated research and engineering problems together with practicing specialists, and acquire hands-on experience. The new track will be part of the Master’s program Digital Technologies in Manufacturing.
A new research center of innovative chemistry has recently opened in St. Petersburg. The center is a joint project of Gazprom Neft and ITMO University that possesses 80 types of world-class equipment, including a laser particle size analyzer in both liquid and solid phases that can boost research in petrochemistry and ecology, as well as drilling and grouting solutions.
The agreement signed between Gazprom Neft and ITMO University will result in the establishment of a new world-class innovative industrial center in St. Petersburg that will produce sensors, robots, drone control systems, computing systems, and other digital solutions for the oil and gas sector.
Scientists from ITMO University together with specialists from ZERTAN, a St. Petersburg-based dental company, have developed specialized software that can reduce the time needed to install dental implants. With this technology, medical specialists will be able to obtain a ready-made 3D model of a customized membrane needed to regenerate host tissue at the implant site within three minutes – instead of several hours, which it often takes in complex cases today. All they need to do is to load a computer tomography (CT) scan of a patient’s skull into the neural network.
Researchers from ITMO’s Faculty of Nanoelectronics together with their colleagues from the Lebedev Physical Institute, D. Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology of Russia, and the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI have conducted a study that showed that nanolattices possess high spectral selectivity. Their layers can be used as color filters for specific wavelength ranges, and one glass plate can contain records of up to six layers. Using this technology, the scientists were able to implement dispersive birefringent filters, which have multiple applications. For instance, they can be used to create AR/VR color displays or novel biochemical sensors for bacterial analysis.
ITMO’s SCAMT Institute will once again hold a summer school for young scholars who want to found and develop their own laboratories. This year, the event is organized in partnership with the Russian-based oil and gas company Tatneft. Future PIs and experts will gather at the company’s corporate university in Almetyevsk to discuss how to start a career in science and where to find academic and industry partners. Here’s what you need to know about the upcoming event.
Sofia Chubova, a student at ITMO’s Faculty of Energy and Ecotechnology, became a winner of Profinternships 2.0. – a contest that supports cooperation between young specialists and their potential employers. Sofia successfully solved a case for Sakhalin Energy and analyzed the viability of a new project on natural gas liquefaction. We asked her to share what helped her win and what advantages came with the victory.
The international project BRIDGE started out as a research initiative meant to explore the possibility of enhancing university graduates’ presence on the labor market by letting them tackle real-life business challenges during their studies. The project has had six sessions since its launch in 2019. That same year, participants from ITMO University got the chance to travel to Finland, Norway, and Murmansk and recently met for the final session at their alma mater. During the week-long event, students attended lectures on entrepreneurship and project management, as well as tried their hand at solving problems faced by business communities. Here’s everything you need to know about the project’s results.
