– Modern technologies in education today are one of the priorities for the development of the university, it is not by chance that the Advanced Learning Institute has been established at TSU, – said TSU Rector Eduard Galazhinskiy. – In this area, very powerful transformations are currently underway: completely new tools are emerging, for example, big data analysis in education, which we are actively using at TSU. So such results are a regular movement of the university towards the realization of priorities.

– This is, on the one hand, the result of the transformation of the entire university, and on the other, it is the merit of the TSU team. I want to thank all the participants of this process, taking into account what intense rhythm they have to live and work, – the Rector comments. – I note that the Higher School of Journalism takes an active part in promoting the university – by promoting partners and at the expense of a large event series. We are reliant on the renovated Faculty of History, which was joined by political scientists.
