LETI Won the Regional Olympiad in Electrical Engineering
LETI students won medals in the individual competition of the regional Olympiad in the Theoretical Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering and triumphed in the team standings.
On October 30, a regional Olympiad in Theoretical Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering, organized by the Committee on Science and Higher School of the Government of St. Petersburg and St. Petersburg Electrotechnical University "LETI," took place.
66 students from nine St. Petersburg universities took part. In 2.5 hours, they solved four problems on transients and the calculation of DC and AC circuits.
The winners and prize-winners in the individual standings are students of LETI, St. Petersburg Mining University, and Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University.
Scoring 39 points, Nikita Savin, a third-year student of Faculty of Industrial Automation and Electrical Engineering of LETI, and Yulia Kuznetsova, a student of Mining University, took first place. Silver medal winners are Mai Tung Duong, a 3rd-year student of the Faculty of Radio Engineering, and Alexander Filin, a student of Polytechnic University; they got 36 points. Dmitry Zakharov, a third-year student of the Faculty of Industrial Automation and Electrical Engineering, and Nikita Lyfar, a third-year student of the Faculty of Electronics, took third place.
"I took part in this Olympiad out of personal interest – starting from the first year, I was interested in mathematical analysis and mathematics itself. This discipline is on a higher level. This is engineering mathematics, where you not only see formulas but also understand what they derive from and how they can be applied. Participation in the Olympiad gave me, first of all, experience, and secondly, motivation to go further, to set new goals."
In the team standings, LETI students took first place, surpassing teams from St. Petersburg Mining University and Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University.
"Participation in Olympiads is a motivation to learn, to solve unorthodox problems, and an opportunity to unlock one's creative potential. Moreover, the Theoretical Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering is the most important engineering discipline that underlies the subjects studied in the senior years".
For seven years in a row, LETI students have won individual and team competitions in the regional Olympiad in the Theoretical Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering. Knowledge in this discipline is necessary for further study in such courses as radio circuits and signals, digital signal processing, electronics, automatic control theory, metrology.
