On 2 February, a new lecture hall renovated by a long-time partner of VSU, RELEX company, was opened in the main building of the university.
Alexander Shashkin, Dean of the Faculty of Applied Mathematics, Informatics, and Mechanics, thanked the representatives of the company for the long-lasting cooperation and stressed the importance of strengthening the relations between the university and employers.
“Many VSU graduates work at RELEX, and our company also organises conferences, competitions, and practical training for students of VSU. RELEX employs specialists with PhDs, university lecturers, and postgraduate students from different specialities. At different times VSU graduates became founders, thought leaders, leading technical experts, or managers of the company.”
RELEX has been developing their own products as well as specific industry solutions for more than 30 years. The software developed by RELEX is used at Russian enterprises and worldwide.
“Voronezh State University enjoys following the careers of its graduates. VSU became the starting point for many high-profile specialists in various fields. Many students start working in major Russian and foreign companies while still at university and achieve great professional success. And our long-lasting cooperation proves that! Hopefully, we will implement even more joint projects, and our graduates will become valuable assets of your company,” said VSU Rector Dmitry Endovitsky.
“We have been on friendly terms with Voronezh State University for a long time, and our cooperation is especially close with the Faculty of Applied Mathematics, Informatics, and Mechanics, opening a new lecture hall is a significant event for our company. The main goal was to give students an opportunity to study in a beautiful and comfortable environment,” noted Igor Boichenko, executive director of RELEX. “Of course, we have an idea of how we are going to use this lecture hall, but we will talk about it later. Most probably, it will be used for the VITA academy, open lectures by our experts (RELEX employees), as well as competitions and other events aimed at interactions with students. We are happy to provide the students with this lecture hall and we hope they will like it!”
