Moscow Poly Student Shared Impressions on Internship at Schmalkalden University

Moscow Poly student Yury Malienko had an internship at Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences, Germany in the period from April to August 2022.

Yuri decided to share his impressions with us: 

“I`ve been planning to study abroad since the 8th grade, so internship prospects were an important criteria when choosing a university for me. Due to the pandemic, my plans were constantly changing. First, I wanted to take up language courses, and then participate in the Work & Travel program. None of that came true. However, in my third year at the University, I decided to go to Germany to study at Schmalkalden University (Hochschule Schmalkalden).

The internship was expected to start on March 1 but it was 1 month delayed. By the way, I would like to thank the team of the international department, I wouldn`t have gone anywhere at all if it wasn`t for their help!

I made a serious deviation from the curriculum as I studied mechanical engineering and innovatics at Moscow Poly, and here [at Schmalkalden] I went for business. I wanted to deepen my knowledge in this area and Schmalkalden University made it possible. I only chose the subjects that I was interested in and made the schedule myself. No one monitored the attendance. I`m the only one responsible for my progress.

During the period of my internship, Schmalkalden partnered with MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). MIT hadn`t collaborated with European countries before, so they are eager to see the result. I got into this project, so I started studying at one more university. We have formed a team and tried to launch a startup there. We hold weekly consultations with the supervisors from the USA who guide the process. Moreover, the head of that department visited the city, so we spent 3 days with him. Since it`s practically impossible to launch a startup within 4 months I was invited to stay here for another term.

Studying at Schmalkalden has changed my attitude towards education and future career. Though, it was difficult at the start, I`m happy that was given this chance and happened to come here!”.

It`s worth mentioning that Schmalkalden University noted Yury`s diligence and hard work and has invited him for an internship again and there are no reason the refuse that. Let`s wish Yury good luck!

Moscow Poly Starts Cooperation with BFU in Engineering and HighTech

Heads of Moscow Poly and Baltic Federal University (BFU) n.a. Immanuel Kant have signed the agreement on cooperation between the Universities. The documents was signed by the president Vladimir Miklushevskii and rector Alexander Fyodorov. The signing procedure took place during the business visit of Moscow Poly representatives to Kaliningrad.


The Parties have agreed to develop cooperation in higher education in engineering and high technologies. Among joint areas are implementation of scientific and educational projects and events, developing student and teacher academic mobility, as well as realization of network educational programs.

During the visit, Moscow Poly delegation was introduced to elaborations made by the “Fabrika” center for multiple-access operations. This business accelerator under Moscow Poly unites scientific-research labs specializing in various field areas. It focuses on elaborations in physics, material science, biomedicine and others.


According to the vice president for research and elaborations Anton Nalivaiko, the synergy of production premises and competencies acquired at Moscow Poly and BFT may contribute to solving complex practical tasks that the country is facing today, including the university key partner – “Avtotor Holding” large vehicle manufacturer located in Kaliningrad.

“We hope for a long and lasting cooperation with BFU both in educational and research spheres”, - noted Anton Nalivaiko.

As a reminder, the Cooperation Agreement was signed with the administration of the Kiliningrad region.

Together with “Avtotor Holding”, Moscow Poly is implementing an “Available Car” strategic project under the “Priority 2030” federal program.

Moscow Poly Students Started Work On Over 150 Projects

Moscow Poly students have started their studies in one of the main disciplines taught at the University – ‘Project Activity’. The discipline will be present during all 4 years of their bachelor and specialist studies. Overall, there are more than 150 diverse projects in technical and engineering sphere, science, creative industries and other frames of reference.

Thus, how did the first classes go:

The “Photopolymer 3D Printer” team project took part in “Application Guide” exhibition (Moscow Poly booth). With the help of a 3D printer, students demonstrated the enrollees an example of a successfully implemented project.

The “Composite Adsorbents” project team has started preparations for holding experiments. Students explored the work with refractometer. The plans for the nearest future are to carry out tests using new sorbent.


The “Autonomous Transportation Systems. Robotics” project team has wired up and started the system via photo and tested the system operation correctness.

The “Comi-Tech” project team studied examples of Russian and International comics.


The “New Library” team members and supervisors have held a meetup in the course of the “2nd Reading Assembly of the Commonwealth”. The responsibilities were divided within the team, the goals and deadlines were clearly set. The students have practically evaluated the volume of work and developed the strategy for project promotion. One of the novelties became the organization within “Asterix” cinema club – the name is still being considered.


The “WorldSkills” team formed of students majoring in ‘Flying Robotics’ has discussed the existing technical solutions in cargo discharge from unmanned aviation systems and set identified the main ideas for developing technical offers.


The “DURECELL. Bettery Recycling” team has held a working meeting with the client`s project representative, head of the “Duracell. Battery Recycling” enterprise federal structure Alexander Pestereev.


According to the Center for Project Activity employees, the guys develop and turn their ideas into reality themselves or under assistance from the industrial partners of the University – so far, there are over 350 of them. If a student has some idea that`s going to pass the expertise assessment  it will be launched in the course of a discipline.
