On April 5, Polytechnic took part in the marathon of digital departments of universities in the Northwestern Federal District. The performances of our speakers were highly appreciated by experts, and we took first place in the region. Competitions for championships across the country are ahead. As part of the implementation of the federal project, Innopolis University has been holding a similar marathon for the second year. Over the course of two months, university teams present projects that students are working on, and also share their experience in implementing programs, finding partners, and talk about the career prospects of graduates. The full-time stage of the competition began on March 29 and will end on April 19 in Moscow.

The marathon took place in the format of presentations by three representatives from each digital department: a student, a teacher, and a supervisor. This year the Polytechnic University was represented by Anastasia Grigorieva, a student of the “Project and Product Management in the Development of Digital Services” program, Anton Ambrazhey, the head of the “Development of Digital Solutions Based on 1C Technologies” program, and Nadezhda Tsvetkova, the project manager.

In her speech, Anastasia Grigorieva said that a big advantage of digital departments for her personally was the opportunity to combine training not only with a bachelor’s degree, but also with a master’s degree. The Digital Chair helped bring her own idea to fruition, resulting in the birth of the PlantCare AI app project, an artificial intelligence mobile app for plant care.

Anton Ambrazhey noted the acute shortage of specialists in 1C technologies, and also spoke about the need to train students in the specifics of working on domestic software. Also during his speech, he voiced a feature of this program – these are partner tracks, within which each partner declares certain tracks and takes on more than 50 students for practice, the best of whom can then receive a job offer.

The program of the digital department on 1C solutions sets itself the task of mass training of employees of the 1C ecosystem. It’s difficult, but thanks to the diverse range of 1C solutions and a large number of partners, we can make our program interesting and useful for students in a wide variety of areas of training,” noted Anton Ambrazhey.

Nadezhda Tsvetkova spoke about activities in 2023-2024, announced the launch of new programs for the next intake, and also noted that the strength of our digital department is a practice-oriented approach in interaction with industrial partners.

We collaborate with many partners, providing various practice options depending on the personal career trajectories of students. Our students can choose not only to solve cases and problems of partners, but also to carry out projects in interdisciplinary teams, participate in case championships or launch startups in accelerators. This year, we launched another unique opportunity – an internship at School 21 from Sberbank, where for three weeks students in teams will solve real cases from key industry partners,” said Nadezhda Tsvetkova.

SPbPU Vice-Rector for Additional and Pre-University Education Dmitry Tikhonov highly appreciated the participation of our university in the project: I believe that the project is developing dynamically. All participants, students, teachers, administration, and partners are beginning to find more and more benefit in it. From here new tracks appear, new practice options appear, and the pool of software expands. It is especially gratifying to see domestic software vendors.

The performance of each team was assessed by experts: Pavel Popov, Deputy General Director – Director of the St. Petersburg branch of NIIAS JSC, Alexander Solovyov, head of the management direction of the unified online platform “Corporate University” of Gazprom Neft PJSC, Konstantin Zvyagin, deputy head of the mobile development department Aurora OS solutions. The ratings given by listeners, who followed the QR code after each performance, were also taken into account.
