TOMSK, May 6 – RIA Tomsk. At once four Tomsk universities entered the hundred of Russian universities invited to participate in the educational intensive courses at the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech). On the objectives of the trip representatives of these universities told reporters on Monday. In more detail – in the material of RIA Tomsk.

The educational intensive courses "Island 10-22" is organized with the support of the Ministry of Education and Science. In 2019, it will be held in Skoltech (Moscow) from July 10-22. intensive course aims at the creation and development of teams of regional universities that can implement systemic changes in the field of training for technological development.

Tomsk – is on the third place in the number of participating universities after Moscow and St. Petersburg. Out of 180 applicants, Tomsk State University (TSU), Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU), Tomsk State University of Control Systems and Radio Electronics (TUSUR), Tomsk State University of Architecture and Building (TSUAB) are in the hundred of participants.

For the first time an educational intensive course "Island" was held in the summer of 2018 on Russky Island. Here, fundamentally new approaches and practices of intensive learning were developed using artificial intelligence technologies, collecting a digital trace, and shaping individual development trajectories.


“The goal of the intensive course – is to prepare teams for the transformation of regional economies for the formation of a new economic framework for Russia related to the orientation on new technologies. In this sense, Tomsk universities have reserves”, – the rector of Tomsk State University (TSU) Eduard Galazhinsky told at a press conference in the RIA Tomsk media center.

According to him, 12 people from TSU will go to "Island" to study, 10 people will teach and present the university’s reserves related to the training of IT personnel.

"TSU developed a technology for scaling intensive training of IT specialists – this is the Higher IT School created a few years ago. Also, we will introduce "Virtual University" – augmented reality technology developed with Rubius, which every teacher can use in the educational process", – the rector added.

Formation of competences in the field of IT-technologies and development of new teaching tools related to digitalization are priorities for the university, the rector emphasized.

“Digitalization – is a transition to new models that allow to use what was not there before. Tomsk in this sense is quite advanced. We have something to show our colleagues – these are innovative flagship projects which will be of interest to all of Russia”, – Galazhinsky said.


"We will also work as a team on the intensive course – there are 12 people, mostly young people, who have passed a personnel reserve, who are absolutely versed in modern technologies, time challenges and are able to set tasks that will determine the development of both the university and the industry for the next 10 years", – the rector of TSUAB Viktor Vlasov told journalists.

According to him, the maximum task of the team – is to get competencies to create projects in the system of personnel training and the development of the innovation environment for the modern digital economy of Russia, but precisely in relation to the profile direction of TSUAB.

"This is architecture and construction. I must say that we want to get a whole new format of interaction with industry, including small, – the creation of small innovative enterprises and technology parks, centers for collective use. We hope the experts will help to transform our knowledge into construction branch", – the rector added.


"In TUSUR, there has always been an entrepreneurial atmosphere which promotes students to create their own IT business. This effect cannot be used. Therefore, group project training has been created on the basis of TUSUR, which provides a link between science, education, and industrial partner. We are ready to offer it on the intensive", – the vice rector of TUSUR Victor Rulevskiy told.

He added that the educational technology system allows to solve unique tasks in the shortest possible time: “For example, 50 companies have been trained only in recent years. All this is happening in digital format, on digital platforms. The TUSUR team for the "Island" intensive courses, which is formed from personnel reserve and leading university specialists, will present this project".


“To make a digital revolution, it is necessary to prepare revolutionaries. They are engineers with good digital competencies and IT specialists. Based on this situation, we restructured our educational activities: we have new computer science, digital practices and electives, and so on”, – the acting rector of TPU Petr Chubik told.

In his opinion, the intensive course will give new impulses for joint work of universities: “In order to make everything work perfectly and prepare the engineers of the future for the digital economy, we absolutely need to work together. What TSU is doing today, – is adaptive mathematics using artificial intelligence – this is the peak. It would be great if TPU students could take math training at TSU".

He also added that in Tomsk TUSUR has the largest competencies in IT disciplines. "Polytechnicians could pass ф part of the disciplines in TUSUR. Thus, we are talking about the need for close collaboration not only in the research field, but also in the training of personnel for the economy of the future", – Chubik summarized.
