Visitors discovered the full scientific potential of the university. They visited UTMN greenfields – School of Advanced Studies and X-BIO.
Nhu Anh Tu, representative of Voice of Vietnam radio, comments:
“University of Tyumen is one of stronger contenders to be a leading institution for breakthrough research. I am glad that we got a chance to discover such a wonderful university in Siberia, which researches climate change and biosafety issues.”
Progressive Engineering track was demonstrated at Polytechnic school panel. Journalists got to interview the visionaries behind these projects: Dr. Andrei Tolstikov, Vice-Rector for Research and International Affairs, Andrey Shcherbenok, Director of SAS, and Pisarev Mikhail, Director of the Polytechnic School. This meeting allowed journalists to gain insight into the work that makes the progress.
Wang Xiujun (China, KIA Novosti) pointed out:
“I learned a lot about the university and noticed that the University of Tyumen is not only a leader in the region but in some respects in Russia as well. I was impressed by the educational model of the School of Advanced Studies. The dorms for international students surprised me too. I think students at Moscow live in more modest conditions.”
Journalists interviewed scientists, teachers, and students. The event culminated in a tour around Tyumen. Guests appreciated the hospitality and tourism potential of the city.
Salcines Sin Fernando de Jesus (Spain, EFE news agency) noted:
“Tyumen is a stunning city. Quite frankly, I didn’t have any expectations, but the city blew me away. I wish to return and connect with locals to see what Tyumen people are like in ordinary life."
