SUSU Rector Aleksandr Shestakov Wishes Happy New Year

Dear teachers, academic and administrative staff, postgraduates and students!

I sincerely wish you a Happy New Year! I would like to express my appreciation to an amazing team of our university for understanding and support, achievements in work and science, and for striving to make the university life more interesting and brighter!

We have approached this wonderful holiday with good results. The year that has gone by has been marked with a number of significant events. The Times Higher Education ranking agency has given high appraisal of the SUSU activities. Our university has entered the global THE Impact Ranking, THE World University Rankings and two rankings by subject in Engineering and Physical Sciences for the first time. This is a serious step forward.

We have finally decided on the development strategy of our university. This strategy meets the needs of the Big Urals region. Digital Industry, Materials Science, and Ecology are the most important trends in science and engineering.

Another important result is that our university has become a driver for the development of Chelyabinsk as a smart city. We have hosted the project analytical session headed by Viktor Khristenko, the SUSU Supervisory Council Chairman; we have signed a Memorandum with the Chelyabinsk Administration and have identified main stages for this ambitious project implementation. We will try to do our best for our city to become smart and comfortable for its citizens. A serious, extensive and interesting work is waiting ahead.

A longed for holiday is coming, and we are traditionally hoping for miracles. Let all your secret wishes made on New Year’s Eve come true! May the new year bring joy and prosperity to every family! I sincerely wish you good health, new prospects and achievements! I wish you peace, love and wellbeing!

A very Happy New Year, my dear friends!

Aleksandr Shestakov, SUSU Rector
