On February 12, two exhibitions dedicated to the 125th anniversary of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University opened at two central Russian stations – Moskovsky in St. Petersburg and Leningradsky in Moscow. The exhibition “First Among Engineers” tells about the achievements of the university’s scientists and engineers.

This is a truly significant event, which is not only an important stage in the celebration of the Polytechnic’s anniversary, but also emphasizes our friendship with Russian Railways. The railway industry is closely related to engineering. Polytechnicians have always been involved in solving transport problems, developing materials, electromotive force, and manufacturing technology for dynamic elements of certain structures. And now polytechnics continue to contribute to the development of transport. By the way, the Minister of Transport of the Russian Federation Vitaly Gennadievich Savelyev is also a polytechnician. I am sure that hundreds of thousands of passengers of the two stations will appreciate our exhibition and learn a lot of new things about the Polytechnic University,” said the rector of St. Petersburg Polytechnic University, academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Andrei Rudskoy.

Leningradsky and Moskovsky railway stations connect the two capitals. This is the main artery of our country. These stations always have maximum passenger traffic. “I congratulate the university on the upcoming anniversary and thank you for your work,” said Boris Korchazhinsky, head of the North-Western Regional Directorate of Railway Stations.

The exhibitions immediately attracted the attention of St. Petersburg residents, Muscovites, as well as guests from other cities and countries. They eagerly read about inventions, projects and events in which polytechnics were the first. This is a super-powerful plasma torch, a diesel-electric submarine, the T-34, human space flight, mass television, a construction team and much more. 12 posters tell about the unique scientists, designers and inventors that the Polytechnic University is proud of.

While waiting for the train, Tatyana and Vyacheslav looked around the exhibition with interest: We saw Kurchatov in the photo. It turns out that he is connected with Polytechnic University. And we ourselves work at the Kurchatov Institute, or more precisely, at the Institute of High Energy Physics. We came to St. Petersburg from the Moscow region, the city of Protvino, for the weekend, were in Kronstadt, went to the theater. We love visiting the cultural capital.

Sergei met his acquaintances at the station and took the time to study the posters: I only knew where the Polytechnic University was located and that concerts were being held in the White Hall. Thanks to the exhibition, I remembered that the first submarine, television and much more were made with the participation of polytechnicians.

Maria walked around the entire exposition and took photographs of each stand: “I’m taking pictures for my husband, I’ll show him. Alexey graduated from Polytechnic University 20 years ago; he majored in energy engineering. We live in two cities and visit our parents in St. Petersburg.”

Muscovite Grigory came to St. Petersburg as a tourist, and now he is returning home: I am interested in technology, and recently this topic has become especially relevant. Of course, projects such as a nuclear submarine and the T-34 tank have been known to me for a long time. I admit, I used to think that these were all Moscow developments. It turned out that the authors were Leningrad Polytechnics. It is amazing.

Vladimir from Ulan-Ude was visiting his daughter and grandson, who live in St. Petersburg: I am an engineer, I work in the heating industry. I really liked the exhibition. This is the right information in the right place. There is a large flow of passengers at the station, I am sure that they will be interested in the history of this powerful university. I was impressed by the contribution of polytechnics to the space industry. I read about the construction brigade with pleasure, because I took part in this movement at one time.

Vladimir’s grandson Adam is in 11th grade and is already thinking about entering a university: Each poster is filled with history, this, one might say, is the life of my grandfather. It’s as if I’m immersed in the fate of his generation. I would like to note how well the posters are made: the succinct theses immediately arouse interest.

Anniversary exhibitions have already been opened on the site Planetarium 1and inPulkovo airport, at Lyceum No. 30, VTalent Academy and other educational institutions – partners of SPbPU.
