Even those who don’t study at PSU yet, can try themselves as students of our university. On March 19, 2019 the lecturers of the Faculty of Information Technologies organized an interactive meeting “Become an IT Student for a Day for the international students of the Preparatory Department at PSU.

The meeting included several stages that allowed the students to learn more about the studies at the faculty.

IT-Math. Even the most difficult subjects like IT-math become easy to understand thanks to the lessons at PSU.  Just in an hour the participants learnt about the function principle of Dijkstra's algorithm and its implementation in programming language C. Besides, the students learnt to construct graphs and digitize images with the help of the vertex-adjacency matrix.

Game Applications Development. The students tried themselves in the development of software programs for gaming industry. It is possible that one of them will create a game that will be played by millions. And then, they took the first step and wrote the code of a popular game “Arcanoid” using JavaScript and HTML.

IT-Skills. The last stage was the test on IT development in English. It was fun to take it, because the questions and answers contained a grain of humour. It appeared that the students are quite good at IT history: their grades varied from 8 to 10.

Most of the participants are permanent participants of IT events for international prospective students, who came to Belarus in September and had time to learn Russian. Nevertheless, there were students who had difficulties with the language. Semira Goncho, a 1st-year student specializing in Software Support of Information Technologies, helped them and we would like to thank her for that!
