TPU students won the All-Russian Engineering Competition

Yulia Phoos and Anton Nikiforov, graduate students of Tomsk Polytechnic University, became the winners of the 5th All-Russian Engineering Competition "VIK-2019", organized by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation. Students and graduate students from 130 universities of the Russian Federation presented more than 1000 unique research projects.

The final of the All-Russian Engineering Competition took place at the Crimean Federal University. In 2019, at the first stage of the competition, students and graduate students from 130 universities of the Russian Federation presented 1,000 unique scientific projects.

The competition was won by representatives of 17 Russian universities, including TPU students - graduate students Julia Phoos and Anton Nikiforov. Julia and Anton's projects won in the nominations “Informatics and Computing” and “Electronics, Radio Engineering and Communication Systems”.

“My project is related to the development of a monitoring system in the power system. This system is being actively implemented in Russia.The system transfers data to control centers, but this data is very specific, and you need to be able to work with them. I am working on a program that processes data, presents the current mode to the supervisor, so that he can adequately assess the existing situation, disconnect, and analyze possible emergency situations. This is a very important, delicate work, on which you need to work a lot. Basic knowledge in the field of energy is not enough you must clearly understand how computer networks work, how it is processed, how it is saved and restored. I want to continue my work on this project and develop it further, ” says Yulia Phoos.

“My project is a nanosecond microwave pulse generator for a nonlinear radar. " It is used to improve the characteristics of non-linear radars that are used to detect explosive objects, to eliminate terrorist attacks and increase public safety, ” adds Anton Nikiforov.

Students of the Polytechnic University shared their emotions from participating in VIC-2019. They said that they had received some advice and heard authoritative opinions of IT sectors experts. They also noted the high level of organization of the competition.

“I hope that participants will continue to develop their research projects, and after graduation they will be able to apply them in real production.” – Olga Chernysheva, Director of the Department of State Youth Policy and Social Projects in Higher Education of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation, says.

Young scientists from the universities of Crimea, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Voronezh, Arkhangelsk, Ryazan, Vladimir, Yekaterinburg, Irkutsk and other cities also won in the competition. In total, the winners were determined in the 21st nomination.


The All-Russian Engineering Competition is a system of annual professional competitions aimed at finding the best representatives among students and graduate students studying in universities in engineering specialties and areas of training in terms of mastering professional competencies in engineering fields.

The competition committee evaluated engineering projects, engineering and technical developments carried out as part of the development of the main professional educational programs of higher education (bachelor's degree, specialty, master's program, graduate school).

This year, Rostec State Corporation was an industrial partner of the 5th anniversary final of the All-Russian Engineering Competition.
