And by the way. Tomsk Polytechnic University Rector Dmitry Sednev congratulated all polytechnics on the New Year.

“Dear polytechnics!

I wish you a happy New Year!

Together we have had a difficult and interesting year 2021 – a year of great challenges and great projects. The most important thing is that we have developed: Tomsk Polytechnic University has something to fill in both the column “results for the year” and the second column “plans for the future”.

In the Year of Science and Technology, we celebrated the 125th anniversary of the university – we remembered the glorious pages of history and great predecessors, thanked our professors, friends and partners, confessed our love for the alma mater.

At the end of the year, TPU was included in the main global QS and THE rankings. Another source of pride is the 23rd place in the QS ranking for the oil and gas sector. The university is consistently included in the top 10 Russian universities according to Forbes, which always generates increased interest from our applicants.

Initially in 2021 – the award of the Government of the Russian Federation in the field of science and technology for young scientists, the opening of new laboratories, grants for research, victories of students and employees in various fields.

One of the main events of the year is the competitive selection for the federal program “Priority 2030”, according to the results of which TPU was included in the first group on the track “Research Leadership” among ten universities. This victory has the contribution of every employee. Now the number one challenge is to make the most of the new opportunities.

TPU now has every chance to become a scientific and educational center, where advanced energy and medical engineering technologies are developed, best practices and models of engineering teaching are tested. We have the resources, the knowledge and the talent for that.

Behind every “done” element – there is a lot of daily, very hard dedication to the work of all polytechnics. I want to thank you very much for your responsibility and your focus, your professionalism and your willingness to work for the good of TPU.

I want to thank our students who choose Tomsk Polytechnic University, study, get involved in big projects, win and are proud to belong to Tomsk Polytechnic University.

Thank you graduates! We feel your support and interest in the affairs of your home university.

The most important New Year’s gift is the hope of good changes, a great opportunity to restart, to leave all that is unnecessary and superficial in the outgoing year, to make a choice in favor of the best plans for the future .

I wish polytechnics and all our friends in the New Year the simplest and most important things – health, job satisfaction, peace and joy, harmony and love!

Happy New Year, dear colleagues! “
