Nasser Saqr Sadeq Sallam, Yemen
Friends advised me to study in Russia
I am Nasser Saqr Sadeq Sallam, a post-graduate of the Department of Automated Information Processing and Control Systems.
At first, I would like to tell you why I have chosen Russia. The relationship between Russia and Yemen has always been friendly and warm, as far back as Soviet times. I have many relatives in Russia who got a worthy education here; they spoke about Russia with cordiality, so I wanted to cast in my lot with Russia.
Second, I would like to tell you how I found out about LETI in 2005 and entered the Faculty of Computer Science and Technology. I was always interested in computer technologies and electrotechnics, but I didn’t know which university to choose. My friends and relatives helped me and gave advice to visit LETI. I liked the university and made my choice.
The main purpose of my study was to get a worthy education and to get acquainted with Russian culture (Saint Petersburg is very suitable for this). I set the following mission for myself: to learn Russian, to find friends in Russia, to study hard, and to get a scientific degree.
The main demand to LETI was qualitative education. It equalled my hopes. I got a good education, learnt to solve difficult problems by myself, and made sure that my friends and relatives were right about Russia.
At the beginning, it was very difficult for me to study, to understand what was said at the lectures, so I had to spend much time on self-education. After two years of study, I was able to operate with scientific terminology, to participate in scientific conferences, and to help my groupmates who helped me at the beginning of my study.
I am very grateful to the university for help in gaining my scientific success. Moreover, I would like to thank my scientific supervisor, Doctor of Engineering Science Professor Pavel I. Paderno, the Department of International Relations, and the International Students Office for helping in my study, and for finding time to explain different scientific information.
The Department of International Relations and International Office help our students and post-graduate students who study in the preparatory course a lot. Russia and Saint Petersburg are my second motherland. I gained a lot of experience, learned a new language, got a good education, and found new friends.
Moreover, I would like to add, that as the years go by, LETI has become stronger, and the level of education is becoming higher. I wish this great university new scientific achievements, new students, and success! Enter LETI and you won’t regret it.
