Dear professors, employees, students and postgraduates of South Ural State University. The year of 2017 is almost over. Our University achieved a lot during these 12 months.
In the year that is now ending a new University brand platform was developed, and the SUSU logo changed. Once again we proved our status as one of the major universities of Russia having successfully defended the Roadmap under Project 5-100. The world’s leading scientists, members of the International Scientific Council, yet again visited our University and gave their high appraisal of it. Also, SUSU acted as the venue for hosting a big-scale forum of rectors of the Russia and Kazakhstan universities. Our researchers presented a number of the newest engineering developments to the community, and our students achieved excellent results both at international scientific competitions, and in cultural, sports and volunteer activities.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your work and its results. Thank you for your trust and support. Only our joint efforts, determination to fulfill our strategic tasks, top-level education, and our scientific achievements help us preserve and strengthen that high standing which has been achieved by our University. I am sure that all the goals that we have set before us for the coming year will be reached, and by the end of 2018 we will be proud of the obtained results.
Dear colleagues! This joyful holiday I wish that you have peace in your souls, good atmosphere in your homes, and harmony in your families. May each day bring you only joy and good news. Happy New Year!
SUSU Rector Alexander Shestakov
