I joined in the Reconfigurable devices program this year (sorry I can't remember the full name, it's a little bit long now) I would love to recommend you to join in the summer school! The experience is amazing! I met a lot of friends here, we keep in touch until now :) Hope to see them again. We did some travel in St. petersburg during the summer school, it's so nice there! And thanks to all the teachers who arrange the summer school, they really did a lot of job, including the boat trip, the excursion and so on. What's more, the class is provoking and useful, I learnt a lot this summer and gained interest in related field. Thank you all for the wonderful memories!

I followed the summer school "OPEN YOUR MIND TO RUSSIA" in 2013, it was a well organized mix of lectures and social program. The social program shows us the most important and famous historical and cultural heritage like Peterhof and the Hermitage, but also the life in St. Petersburg nowadays. The lectures gave me a good overview about the history and culture of Russia. Moreover I got a good impression of the develop of the Russian economy. The knowledge which I gain during this two week program was very helpful for my further studying, especially for my class in "International Business and Cultural Diversity". I really like to get in contact with people from other countries therefore it was a great opportunity and I could extend my international network.

Awesome time with awesome people. After spending just one night at home, those three weeks in the city of Saint Petersburg seemed as a dream. From the first moment the team which organized the event made me feel more than welcome. I arrived to the city at midnight. Even in that situation someone come to the airport to receive me with a smile. I learn so much. Not only in class but also thanks to my mates of adventure. All of us came from different countries and have different culture. The variability of thoughts enriched myself. At class we really had a wonderful atmosphere and classes were interactive and interesting. What I enjoyed the most from the program were the complementary activities. I would really recommend this experience to everybody. Thank you all for the great time I had!

Saint Petersburg is really a magical city with beautiful scenery, wonderful palaces and enthusiastic people. Located in such a gorgeous place, surrounded with really nice natural environment, Polytech University is surely a wonderful place to study. What's more, the professors and teachers are excellent in their fields. Thanks for this chance to visit Polytech, and the chance to fall in love with the city!

I participated in the Polytechnic University 2017 summer school "3D design and digital fabrication" project. I designed and used 3d printer to produce a nautilus-shaped lantern. My life in the school was very exciting. The Chinese people particularly like eating, so my Chinese teammates and I cooked a lot in the kitchen. We also share our Chinese food with students from other countries. All of us spent a very happy time together. During my spare time, I visited the Hermitage, Peter Paul fortress and other attractions. I like history, so I enjoyed the various museums in St. Petersburg. I am very grateful to the Polytechnic University for giving me the opportunity to come to Russia to communicate with people from different countries. I am very grateful to my teachers - Yulianna, Simon and Sergei for teaching me patiently. I am very grateful to Darina, Sasha, Nikita for taking care of my life.
