Mobile Application for International Enrollees and Students Developed at TPU
The Division for Russian Language of the TPU School of Core Engineering Education with the support of the Division for Information Technology of the TPU School of Computer Science and Robotics have developed a PreTPU application for international enrollees and students. All the relevant information about TPU, news and event announcements can be found via the mobile application.
PreTPU was developed for the Android operating system. Soon it will be available for download on the Play Market platform. The application is designed for two kinds of users: TPU international enrollees and students. The interface is available in Russian and English.
“The application is a digital product entirely developed at TPU. We decided to create it for international students who are thinking to study in Russia, choose TPU and for those international students who are already enrolled at the university.
On PreTPU, we collected and systematized reference information and news what makes searching and viewing the information required for an international student much easier,”
Evgeniya Sherina, Head of the TPU Division for Russian Language, explains.
The application consists of a few sections. International students willing to study at TPU can learn all the information about majors and fields of study of all levels of education, as well as what they must do to be enrolled at the university and how to come to Tomsk. International students will gain access to the timetable, personal account and staff contacts. The service also provides basic information about the university and Tomsk.
“Via the application, professors will be able to send push notifications with important and urgent information for students. In return, students will be able to contact staff directly and ask them questions. It will significantly simplify the communication process,” Evgeniya Sherina adds.
In the long run, it is planned to add some more languages to the interface and make the service more international oriented. Soon developers will add the information in Chinese.
