 ✔ The competition was held for the third time. It is aimed to introduce employers and future young specialists to each other and give students an opportunity to prove themselves in solving non-standard tasks.

The final of the championship took place on December 16 and was hosted by the TASS news agency in an online format. It brought together five teams representing different St. Petersburg universities that had succeeded in passing the qualifying rounds. The SPbGASU team was among the finalists after successfully qualifying in the section "Transport and Urban Environment".

“Today's competition provides you with a unique opportunity to improve your competencies. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step! I wish all of you to boldly go forward and be confident in defending your projects. You have every chance for this. Let your knowledge multiplied by the well-coordinated team work lead you to victory ", said Maxim Sokolov, Vice Governor of St. Petersburg, addressing the participants.

“Let this competition become an important step in the participants’ professional career,” noted Kirill Polyakov, Chairman of the St. Petersburg Transport Committee.

The expert jury included CEOs of Saint Petersburg’s leading transport companies. They evaluated the students’ projects that focused on the development of the city transport system in terms of physical accessibility, safety, efficiency, speed, convenience and residents’ perception. The project presented by SPbGASU students lacked just one point to win the contest: the team became silver medallists, and the team of Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University took first prize. The third place went to the joint student team of the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration (RANEPA), Saint Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation (SUAI) and SPbGASU.

We congratulate our students Lyubov Branovitskaya, Elizaveta Bystrova and Vyacheslav Kaisin on becoming second place winners of the case championship!
