RSTU teachers have given lectures to students
at the Henan College of Surveying and Mapping (China)
Cooperation between RSTU and the Henan College of Surveying and Mapping (People's Republic of China) began back in 2020. In November 2023, a delegation from our university paid a working visit to a Chinese partner university. As part of this interaction, teachers of the Department of Computer Science and Automated Control Systems conducted classes and master classes in a full-time format for students studying in the 2nd year in the field of Informatics and Computer Science.
Students were trained in the disciplines “Applied Programming and Databases” and “ Multithreading and Parallel Programming” in a specialized computer class with personal computers connected to a local network. Our teachers conducted laboratory work using multimedia equipment. The classes were devoted, among other things, to the structured query language SQL for relational databases using the MS Sql Server database management system. Students were also introduced to the methods of multi-threaded and parallel programming in C+, special Thread libraries and OpenMP standards using the integrated software development environment Visual Studio.
In September next year, these 2nd year students at the Henan College of Surveying and Mapping will be able to continue their studies in the field of “Informatics and Computer Science” at the RSTU in the 3rd year, already in full-time format.
