About 1,000 graduates of Yanka Kupala State University will be assigned to the first job this year (VIDEO ADDED)
On 8th of April in Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno started the distribution of university graduates of daily budget students. The first recipients were from the Faculty of Physical Education. The first job was allocated primarily to students who were trained with funds from the national budget. However, as in previous years, job placement was also available for fee-paying students.
– Every year the Yanka Kupala State University provides 100% of graduates with the first job. In fact, we already at the stage of the reception campaign carry out the recruitment of students according to the needs of the client organizations, therefore we have no problems with the distribution of graduates, - explained Marina Kolotsa— the Head of the educational-methodical administration. Further education at the university is carried out in close cooperation with the clients of personnel. They participate in the preparation of curricula, conduct classes and they are members of State examination commissions. Our students are practicing at their intended place of employment. At the request of the client organizations, students write diploma and carry out interdisciplinary projects. And finally, the first job for many of our graduates is the place they have been preparing for throughout their studies. For example, Oksana Dobrinskaya, a graduate of the Faculty of Physical Education, successfully combined university and work in kindergarten, introducing children to physical culture. She didn’t worry on the eve of the distribution: Oksana has an application from a future employer and a fairly high rating among the students of the faculty.
– I’m the third-highest in my class, so I’m counting on a good distribution, - told Oksana Dobrinskaya. - I’ve been working at a kindergarten in Grodno as a physical education director for a year now. I hope I’ll stay there, I really like my job. I’ve learned a lot already, and in two years I’ll be a young specialist, I’ll learn more about the profession, I’ll gain experience.
But Artem Zayac knew that he would return to his native Dyatlovsky district four years ago, when he was just admitted to the Faculty of Physical Culture of the Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno. He has a target orientation and also experience in one of the Grodno schools, which will be useful for him in the workplace, where he will go on distribution already as a young specialist.
– In my third year as a university student, I started working in school № 22, in Grodno. It was not difficult to combine work and study, as the university provides opportunities for those who work to attend classes on an individual schedule. Now, I’ll return to the Dyatlovsky district, where I have family, relatives. So I’m pleased that this is the way things turn out - shared with Artem Zayac.
Every year the Yanka Kupala State University provides the first job for all graduates. Applications from institutions and organizations of the city and region are sufficient, and this year there are even more applications than graduates to be distributed.
– This year at our faculty there are 36 students of the budgetary form of education, including 7 athletes of the national team, who are in a position not to be distributed - noted Andrey Navoichik, Dean of the Faculty of Physical Culture. - It should be noted that, as of today, we have twice as many applications than graduates who need the distribution. Two fee-paying students have expressed a desire to get assigned to the first job. I think there will be others by the end of the school year.
Graduates of the Faculty of Physical Education are assigned to pre-school and general secondary schools, as well as to sports schools for children and young people and physical education centers. Some athletes remained in their teams.
In general, the Yanka Kupala State University in Grodno plans to distribute about 1,000 graduates in 2021. Generally, 90 per cent of them stay in the Grodno region. The most in demand today are graduates of pedagogical specialties. By the way, at Kupalov University about 40% of graduates are young teachers. The graduates of pedagogical specialties are the most needed. By the way, at Yanka Kupala State University about 40% of graduates are young teachers.
Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno will participate in the International Innovation Exhibition and Research Competition HI-TECH-2021
The exhibition «High Technologies. Innovation. Investment» will take place on April 21-23 in Saint Petersburg.
In the collective section of scientific and technical development of the Ministry of Education of Belarus at the International Exhibition «High Technologies. Innovation. Investment» (HI-TECH) two developments will be presented by Yanka Kupala State University of Grodno. The developer of «Digital Systems of Spectral Measurement Automation» is Andrey Herman, Head of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics of the Faculty of Physics and Engineering. The development is intended for the automation of spectral measurements in the creation of new and modernization of existing scientific installations and laboratory equipment used in optical spectroscopy.
The second project, which will be presented at the exhibition and also take part in the competition «Best Innovative Project and Best Scientific and Technical Development of the Year» is - «Energy-efficient Thermal Insulation Foam Glass Material». Scientists of Yanka Kupala State University have developed the optimal structure of foam glass in order to reduce its energy consumption and cost of production. It is a modification of the classical foam glass by replacing the traditional gas reservoir with a local raw material resource, dolomite flour, and the use of granite cuttings to reduce energy costs up to 30 percent during the milling of raw materials. The proposed material can be used for the thermal rehabilitation of existing buildings and structures, as well as for the heating of building structures of new buildings and structures. It is worth noting that at present no foam-glass is produced in the Republic of Belarus at all, and in the Russian Federation the volume of foam-glass is less than 5 per cent of the volume of heat-insulating materials produced. On the other hand, the prevalence of cullet in the national economy and the intensive waste from the stone processing industry imply their integrated use in the production of building materials, in particular foam-glass. A team of scientists from the Engineering and Construction faculty of Yanka Kupala State University worked on the project. The promotion of development is carried out by the assistant professor of the department of construction production, project manager Dmitry Safonchik and senior lecturer, project developer Svetlana Maksimovich. The research phase has now been completed. At the competition in Saint Petersburg, the development of Yanka Kupala State University will be presented in the nomination «The best innovative project (development) in the field: new materials and technologies, chemical products». HI-TECH is one of the first Russian events in the field of high technology, innovation and investment projects in the field of science and technology. The exhibition is held jointly with the Saint Petersburg Technical Fair, which opens new business opportunities for the participants of the event. The Ministry of Education of the Republic of Belarus has been taking part in the exhibition HI-TECH and the competition of scientific developments since 2007. This year, 40 projects will be presented from 12 organizations and institutions of the Ministry of Education of Belarus. In 2020, representatives of the Yanka Kupala State University brought from Saint Petersburg a diploma and a special prize for the development of «Hybrid technologies for the creation of especially hard and super-solid nanocomposite vacuum coatings». In 2019, students of Yanka Kupala State University were awarded a diploma for active participation in the International Exhibition HI-TECH. In 2016, at the National Exhibition of the Republic of Belarus at the International Exhibition-Congress «High Technologies. Innovation. Investment» the development of scientists of Yanka Kupala State University was awarded with the 2nd degree and silver medal for the best innovative project (development) in the field of nano-systems, nano-devices, nano-materials, nano-technologies, nano-electronics, nano-photonics, spintronics, Bionics, nano-computers, nano-medications.
