Just six months after its official opening in December 2011, Russia’s first Satellite Technology Education Center at Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) (See Channels Story, Spring 2012) proudly celebrated its inaugural graduating class, which included students from leading Russian operators RTComm and Rostelecom and the university itself. Organized as a collaborative initiative between TPU, the Scientific Industrial Center (STRELA) in Tomsk, Siberia and Hughes, curriculum topics range from satellite broadband network design and operations to terminal performance/installation, based on in-depth study and hands-on training using the industry-leading Hughes HX System operating at TPU.
“Hughes heartily congratulates the first graduating class and the Satellite Technology Education Center,” said Arunas Slekys, vice president and general manager, Russia & CIS Business at Hughes. “We’re excited to be a part of this important initiative to further the know-how and capabilities in satellite systems by future technology and business leaders from Siberia.”
