Three Golds, a Silver, and a Bronze: LETI is a Champion of International Olympiads
ETU "LETI" won the Open International Student Internet Olympiads 2022.
In the spring of 2022, the results of the Open International Student Internet Olympiad in Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics, Chemistry, and others were announced. Students from universities in the Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Belarus, and Slovenia took part in the final stage of the competition.
The gold medalist and absolute winner of the Olympiad in Mathematics 2022 was Peter Sabanov, a second-year student of the Faculty of Computer Science and Technology at LETI. Olga Stezhko, Assistant of the Department of Algorithmic Mathematics at LETI, was in charge of preparing the student for the event. All in all, 5080 students from 138 universities in 6 countries took part in the competition in Mathematics, including 4868 students from 125 universities in Russia. 10 students from LETI participated.
"I have been taking part in math Olympiads since I was a kid because it's a good opportunity to prove yourself and try your hand. And the science itself attracts me by the fact that math describes absolutely everything. For example, if physics studies the laws of our universe, math studies the laws of everything. Even if you imagine some parallel universe in which the laws of physics are completely different, the number Pi there will remain unchanged, and the mathematical laws will remain unchanged. Its laws cannot be broken."
In Computer Science, the first place was taken by students of the Faculty of Computer Science and Technology: third-year student Nikita Yalovega and freshman Pavel Kobelev won gold, and freshman Gleb Pimenov became the bronze medalist. The mentor of the students was Julia Peryazeva, Associate Professor of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. In all, 4850 students from 134 universities in 6 countries took part in the Olympiad in Computer Science, including 4614 students from 119 universities in Russia, including 7 students from LETI.
Igor Roslov, a third-year student of the Faculty of Information Measurement and Biotechnical Systems, took second place in the Chemistry Olympiad. His mentor is Olga Rakhimova, Associate Professor of the Department of Physical Chemistry. A total of 2200 students from 95 universities in 5 countries took part in the Olympiad in the subject, including 2014 students from 80 universities in Russia, including 18 students from LETI.
"Participation in Internet Olympiads is a great opportunity for students to try their hand, compare their knowledge with that of students from other universities in a familiar environment, sitting at a computer. As we can see, our students show excellent results; it is important both for them and for teachers. Congratulations to all the winners, congratulations and thanks to their mentors!"
The Open International Internet Olympiads for students have been conducted since 2008. For twelve years, approximately 432 000 students from 1072 higher educational institutions in 20 countries participated in them.
