The student research activity is a continuation of their educational self-realization and part of the training of qualified specialists who are able to solve on their own any professional, scientific and technical problems. The students are involved in the research activity under the supervision of the University professors and teachers.
To inform and involve students in scientific activities at the university, scientific conferences, olympiads, discussions, master classes, round tables, the Student Scientific Session competition, the Student Scientific Spring forum, etc. are held throughout the year. A number of student scientific societies (SSS) created at the University help students to immerse in a professional environment where they learn to conduct research, write scientific articles, make presentations at scientific conferences, initiate, develop and promote their scientific ideas and projects. They also assist in the submission of scientific papers for grants, nominal scholarships, awards and other forms of moral and material encouragement.
