Limoges University, Limoges, France
Study in Russia… an opportunity not to be missed! Hi! I'm a French student of 23 years old. I'm curious and eager to see the world. I have always enjoyed learning new things, discovering other cultures… Internship abroad was a integral part of my Bachelor curricula “Home automation and autonomy of people” at the University of Limoges.
SRM University, Chennai, India
First of all I would like to thank TUSUR for providing me a world class research experience in Russia. I had arrived at TUSUR in the beginning of December 2014. Being from a place in southern India where climate is always hot and humid, we were very excited to see Siberia and snow for the first time. We were also worried if we could handle extreme climate of Russian winter. But, surprisingly it was not a big deal at all. The weather was very pleasant and I personally liked it a lot. I discovered that working in a cold climate is actually very refreshing.
EPITECH, Rennes, France
My university gives us the opportunity to study in another country during one year. Among the different destinations, I have chosen TUSUR in Siberia because the school's program seemed to be interesting and I wanted to visit Russia.
During this year of schooling, I had a project to do: I had to conceive and implement an e-learning platform that allow students to follow courses without attending physically a university.
SRM University, Chennai, India
Hello! My name is Srilekhya and I'm currently a graduate student of Electrical Engineering at Virginia Tech, USA. I did my internship in TUSUR during the Summer 2014. At this time I was undergraduate student at SRM University, India.
For my internship I was placed at the TUSUR Laboratory of Intelligent Computer Systems. My work included modeling MMIC circuits in navigation systems using SiGe technology. This technology is cutting edge and relatively new in the field of integrated circuits...
Limoges University, Limoges, France
My internship took place during the Spring 2014. At that time I was doing my Bachelor of Home-automation and autonomy of people at the University of Limoges in France. To finish my diploma I needed to choose an internship at one of the partner-universities. TUSUR University located in Tomsk, Siberia was among them.
I choose this internship because it was a authentic opportunity to see Russia. In my research work I was supposed to find the best solution to prevent and assist people in case of fall in a room equipped with camera.
University of Montreal
Coming from Canada and already use to harsh climate, Tomsk region inside far Siberia was nothing to afraid me. Hosted and invited by TUSUR, one of the biggest university in Tomsk, my 5 months as an interned were more than meaningful.
