Rector TU Graz Harald Kainz called such an interaction “science without borders” and emphasized the significance of personal contacts of leading scientists when working meetings become the foundation for joint research and new educational programs.

The University of Technological University (German. Technische University Graz; Tu Graz) became the strategic partner of the Polytechnic in 2013. However, joint projects, academic exchanges and research work began much earlier. In a sense, that grace and St. Petersburg stood at the origins of the rapprochement of Russian and Austrian higher education. About the history of cooperation with that grace, the general technical language and implemented projects, passions for science and love for speed – read in our material.

The science. Passion. Technology

It is such a motto that wears the University of Technological University, explaining it by the fact that university students and employees unite a passion for natural sciences and technologies. And the built relationship between fundamental and applied research makes TU GRAC the leading University of Austria in cooperation with business and industry.

The next year, the delegation, led by rector Harald Kainz, arrived in St. Petersburg to participate in the seminar Effective development of strategic partnership between St. Petersburg and Tu Graz. Within the framework of the round table, colleagues discussed joint projects - training programs in the magistracy and graduate school, double diplomas programs, interaction on winter and summer schools. For example, the director of the Institute of Experimental Physics, TU GRAC Wolfgang Ernst, is an invited professor to summer polytechnic schools in the field of “Space Technologies”.

The university was founded in 1811 by Archduke Johann in the capital of the federal land of Stiria – the city of Graz, which is rightfully considered the city of students, since the fifth of its population studies at universities. Among the key areas of the Graz, engineering, electrical engineering and energy, biotechnology and civil construction can be distinguished. The university is concentrated on magistrates and graduate school programs, which are in great demand in the international educational market.

Of course, its graduates also speak about the university level: the University of Technological University at different times graduated from the world -famous scientist Nikola Tesla, the Nobel laureate in chemistry Richard Tssigmondi, one of the founders of soil mechanics Karl Terezgari, and many others. Now the university is one of the ten best universities in Europe. International cooperation is one of the key areas of the university, since serious scientists, ambitious ideas and numerous infrastructure, human and financial resources are needed to conduct serious research. Therefore, as they say at the university, innovations need cooperation.

The first to come closer

The University of Technological University was the first Austrian university to sign a contract with the Soviet Higher Education – a Polytechnic University, which was still called the Leningrad Polytechnic Institute named after M.I. Kalinin. This happened in 1985. Then the implementation of joint projects in the field of electrical engineering and information technology began.Skazhi_mne_kto_tvoy_drug_texnologicheskiy_universitet_gratsa

In 2016, the delegations of the Institute of Physics, Nanotechnology and Telecommunications (IFNT) and students of the Institute of Computer Sciences and Technologies (ICT) got acquainted with the laboratories of TU GRAC. According to the results of the visit, Ifnit employees agreed with the laboratory of electron microscopy and nanoanalysis on joint research. Scientists of TU Graz were interested in the developments of the Kvanto Electronics department for the study of nanoparticles in polydisperse solutions and the diagnosis of surface structures with optical methods. While the undergraduates of IKNT, together with Austrian students, discussed the technologies of the “smart” house, got acquainted with the latest achievements in the field of interaction between the computer and man, visited the laboratories of TU GRAC. It was very interesting! We were demonstrated by virtual reality glasses, a coffee machine’s intuitive service and taught us to use the Latin alphabet using tactile associations, ”said Iknt Aigul Batyrov, student Iknt.

Colleagues from TU GRAC visited the Institute of Computer Sciences and Technologies recently - this summer. Then representatives of the Department of International Relations and Mobility programs TU GRAC Barbara Bettger and Birgit Baushtadter, as well as Professor Wolfgang Ernst, demonstrated IKNT laboratories, and students presented their ideas and projects in the field of modeling and robotics, multi -speaking wireless systems and person recognition systems.And at the Institute of Physics and Technology, the professor and Russian colleagues discussed joint work on the study of various materials and nanoparticles, as well as spectroscopy.

The University of Technological University (German. Technische University Graz; Tu Graz) became the strategic partner of the Polytechnic in 2013. However, joint projects, academic exchanges and research work began much earlier. In a sense, that grace and St. Petersburg stood at the origins of the rapprochement of Russian and Austrian higher education. About the history of cooperation with that grace, the general technical language and implemented projects, passions for science and love for speed – read in our material.

For speed and encore

The science. Passion. Technology

It is such a motto that wears the University of Technological University, explaining it by the fact that university students and employees unite a passion for natural sciences and technologies. And the built relationship between fundamental and applied research makes TU GRAC the leading University of Austria in cooperation with business and industry.

The university was founded in 1811 by Archduke Johann in the capital of the federal land of Stiria – the city of Graz, which is rightfully considered the city of students, since the fifth of its population studies at universities. Among the key areas of the Graz, engineering, electrical engineering and energy, biotechnology and civil construction can be distinguished. The university is concentrated on magistrates and graduate school programs, which are in great demand in the international educational market.

Cooperation between universities is not limited to the strict framework of the academic nature of higher education - there is a place for youth projects and cultural initiatives. During one of his visits to Austria, as part of a delegation then still a 5th year student of IEiTS, and today a deputy director of the Youth Design and Technology Bureau, Evgeny ZAKHLEBAEV discussed with students of TU Graz the creation of a racing car and participation in the youth competitions Formula Student. Austrian students have plenty of experience in this matter - the racing team has existed at TU Graz for more than 10 years.

Of course, its graduates also speak about the university level: the University of Technological University at different times graduated from the world -famous scientist Nikola Tesla, the Nobel laureate in chemistry Richard Tssigmondi, one of the founders of soil mechanics Karl Terezgari, and many others. Now the university is one of the ten best universities in Europe. International cooperation is one of the key areas of the university, since serious scientists, ambitious ideas and numerous infrastructure, human and financial resources are needed to conduct serious research. Therefore, as they say at the university, innovations need cooperation.

The first to come closer

A year later, the Polytech NCM team created the first student racing car in the North-West of the Formula Student series, which was later recognized as one of the best in Russia. The Polytechnic University team proudly presented their brainchild to Rector Harald KAINZ. He even got into the car and assessed its technical condition. Now the members of the Youth Design and Technology Bureau have accepted a new challenge: within the framework of the Polytech Solar project, the guys are building a solar car.

The University of Technological University was the first Austrian university to sign a contract with the Soviet Higher Education – a Polytechnic University, which was still called the Leningrad Polytechnic Institute named after M.I. Kalinin. This happened in 1985. Then the implementation of joint projects in the field of electrical engineering and information technology began.In the laboratories of TU Graz, representatives of the Faculty of Electromechanics (now the Institute of Energy and Transport Systems), together with Austrian colleagues, carried out research on the calculations of electrical and electronic devices, and scientists from the Faculty of Technical Cybernetics (now the Institute of Computer Science and Technology) were developing measuring instruments. Over time, the sphere of joint interests expanded and, in addition to energy and information technology, began to include civil engineering, mechanics, the study of the properties of materials, and more.

It's no secret that Austria is the birthplace of many famous composers whose names are familiar to us since childhood - Mozart, Schubert, Liszt, Strauss ... And it was also in Austria that the World Choir Games were held for the first time under the patronage of the President of the State. The traditions of choral singing are also strong at the Polytechnic University, therefore, already at the stage of signing the cooperation agreement, one of the points of joint activity was touring and organizing performances by the creative teams of both universities. In 2014, the youth choir Polyhymnia and the student group of folk instruments gave a concert at the Graz University of Technology. The performance of the polytechnics caused incessant applause, and for those who did not have enough space in the hall, Polyhymnia sang an encore on the main staircase and in the foyer of the university.The White Hall of SPBPU, in turn, was taken by the Orchestra of Universities of the city of Graets, which was attended by Vice-Governor Governor Martin Schroek, as well as representatives of the government and the Legislative Assembly of St. Petersburg.

In order to bring educational and scientific ties to a qualitatively new level, in September 2012, a framework agreement on cooperation with TU Graz was signed at the Polytechnic University. Then the rector of the Austrian university Harald KAINZ said: “We speak the same language – the technical language. Therefore, we can develop our scientific research and implement joint educational programs.”

A year later, in September 2013, a delegation from SPbPU headed by Rector, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences A.I. RUDSKY to the city of Graz, where an agreement on strategic partnership had already been signed. “This document is aimed at developing academic, scientific and cultural cooperation between our universities,” Andrey Ivanovich said then, emphasizing the need to organize and conduct scientific seminars and conferences, publish articles in scientific journals, and increase academic mobility.

From words to deeds

And this is not the limit

The signing of a framework agreement on cooperation, and subsequently an agreement on strategic partnership, became the impetus for the launch of new large-scale projects. Thus, it was decided to establish a Research Center for Diesel Structure and Transmissions (RD Center) between St. equipment. The agreement was signed in Smolny in the presence of the Governor of St. Petersburg G.S. POLTAVCHENKO.

2019 will be the year of Russian-Austrian youth exchanges. In this regard, at the Forum of the European Association of International Education (EAIE), which was held in September this year in Seville, the International Services of St. Petersburg and Tu Graz discussed the holding of a joint international youth forum.

Among the priority tasks of the Center are the training of students and young specialists, conducting joint scientific research of applied nature, as well as commercialization and transfer of scientific discoveries to production. Commenting on the creation of the International Center, the director of the CIS countries of AVL List GmbH, Joseph Mayer, noted: “All the innovative directions necessary for development cannot be covered with one company, so cooperation with universities is especially important. This will allow you to get well -educated personnel, and all technology developed at universities will find use in various fields – from traditional internal combustion engines to electric vehicles. ”

“We have many projects and ideas - and we will actively implement them,” said A.I. rector of St. Petersburg, at the last meeting with Harald Kainz. Rudskoy. “International cooperation, especially with such a strategic partner, allows you to expand and convey the latest achievements of not only our scientists, but also world science, and this is an immutable condition for the high quality of education.”

On these topics, a number of scientific seminars were conducted, moreover, research in the field of laser and welding technologies was added to joint interests: Specialists of SPBPU took part in the conference on modeling welding processes at the GleEble research complexes and the 10th international seminar “Digital Analysis of weldability”, passing in that grace.

You are to us, we are to you

The establishment of effective interaction is impossible without knowledge of the partner’s infrastructure and personal acquaintance with the university scientists-it is necessary to plunge into its research and cultural environment. In this regard, on a regular basis, the visits of representatives of the rector of the university, the faculty, students and graduate students TU GRAC in St. Petersburg State University, and vice versa are held.
