Сунь Вэйхао, группа СТМ-210303 (Китайская Народная Республика)
Качество преподавания очень высокое в УрФУ в ИСА, и я получил здесь много полезных знаний.
Одногруппники и преподаватели очень хорошо относятся к иностранным студентам, и я очень рад, что учусь в УрФУ в ИСА. Преподаватели и начальники института оказали мне большую помощь во время учебы в университете, без них мне бы не повезло поступить в этот университет учиться.
Я надеюсь, что университет будет становиться все лучше и лучше, и в ИСА будет приходить больше иностранных студентов.
All four years of study at UrFU Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture passed in a breeze. The studies aroused great interest among students, in particular thanks to our teachers. During the years of training, we were not passive listeners, but active participants. There are a lot of events held by the institute and all students can get involved in different extracurricular activities. The department of Heat and gas supply and ventilation" has a special place in my heart! Thank you Ural Federal University for the education and wonderful student years!
Миськова Елизавета Леонидовна, группа СТ-490010 (Республика Казахстан)
Все четыре года обучения прошли незаметно. Учеба проходила с большим интересом, в частности благодаря нашим преподавателям. На протяжении всех лет обучения мы были не пассивными слушателями, а активными участниками. Очень много мероприятий, проводимых институтом, во внеучебной жизни можно утонуть с головой. Для кафедры ТГВ отдельное место в сердечке! Спасибо за полученное образование и прекрасные студенческие годы!
I have been studying at the Ural Federal University for a long time, and I really like it! The university is well known for its excellent education quality and academic results. I really liked that there are many other great clubs with various interesting events.
The entire teaching staff is highly qualified and experienced. In addition, the dean's team at our institute and the staff of the international admissions office are very polite and kind. I think if you are looking for an incredible student experience that will contribute to a successful future, you should apply to Ural Federal University!
Дзвимбо Эдвард, группа СТ-490007 (Республика Зимбабве)
Я уже давно учусь в Уральском Федеральном Университете, и мне очень нравится! Университет хорошо известен своими превосходными академическими результатами. Мне очень понравилось, что есть ещё много других замечательных клубов с различным интересным мероприятиями. Весь преподавательский состав является высококвалифицированными и опытным. Кроме того, деканатская команда в нашем институте и международная приёмная комиссия очень вежливые и добрые. Я думаю, если кто-то ищет невероятный студенческий опыт, который поможет определить свое будущее, не проходи мимо Уральского Федерального Университета.
I am a water supply engineer. After an academic leave, I decided to return to the university in November 2022.
I studied day and night, and sometimes there were many days when I had no time to sleep or eat, as I was doing many things, like writing a research paper and preparation for the final exams. During that time, my teachers were supporting and encouraging me. At this university I made many foreign friends (from Russia, Hungary, Iraq, Egypt, Spain), got new hobbies (swimming, table tennis) and realized even more how wonderful my profession is. Thanks to my teachers' teaching methods, their guidance and work with students helped me to understand how valuable and important my profession is. My university was my home. Even though I was the only Mongolian student in my department, I felt like in a warm family with my teachers. I am very glad that I chose this university. I am grateful to my supervisor N.S. Tsarev and head of the department Professor E.V. Migalaty, Professor Yu.V.Anikin, V.I.Aksenev, A.F. Nikiforov, O.B. Dubrovina, O.B. Naschetnikova, I.I. Nichkova, L.I. Ushakova, K.V. Krutikova, G.B. Braialovsky who contributed to the successful completion of my Master's studies. Also, I want to express my deep gratitude to Braialovsky teachers. Thank you so much for appreciation of my efforts, your support and encouragement. My success has been achieved thanks to UrFU scientists and professors.
Сугарсурэн Уянга, группа СТМ-210803 (Монголия)
Я инженер водоснабжения. После того, как мой академический отпуск закончилась, я приняла приглашение вернуться в университет в ноябре 2022 года.
Я училась день и ночь, и иногда было много дней, когда я не спала и не ела. Потому что кажется, что только вчера я занималась многими вещами, такими как написание исследовательской работы в качестве студентки последнего курса и экзамены, которые вот-вот закончатся. В это время мои преподаватели поддерживали и поощряли меня. После учебы в этом университете у меня появилось много иностранных друзей (Россия, Венгрия, Ирак, Египет, Испания), появились новые увлечения (плавание, настольный теннис) и я еще больше осознала, насколько прекрасна моя профессия. Методы обучения моих учителей, работа со студентами, объяснение того, чего они не понимают, и очень хорошее руководство ими помогли мне понять, насколько ценна и точна моя профессия. Мой университет был моим домом. Несмотря на то, что я была единственным монгольским студентом на своем факультете, я чувствовала себя теплой семьей со стороны своих преподавателей. Я очень рада, что выбрала этот университет. Я считаю, что все это способствовало моему успешному получению степени магистра. Кстати, его научный руководитель Н.С.Царев и заведующий кафедрой профессор Е.В. Мигалатий, профессор Ю.В. Аникин, В.И. Аксенов, А.Ф. Никифоров, О.Б. Дубровина, О.Б. Насчетникова, И.И. Ничкова, Л.И. Ушакова, К.В. Крутикова, Г.Б. Браяловский. Хочу выразить огромную благодарность бряловским преподавателям. Большое спасибо за то, что оценили мои усилия, подбодрили меня и всегда поддерживали. Мой успех благодаря университетским ученым и профессорам.
This year 2023, I have graduated with honors from the Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture of UrFU thanks to the excellent and thorough training I received here. As a foreigner, I felt at home at the university with a lot of attention, respect, love and understanding from my supervisors, friends and people around me in Russia. I am very grateful to these brave people from the dean's office who do their job very well, as well as to all excellent teachers who contributed to my education. They are very helpful to me and the society, and will always be in my heart, especially Nikita Fomin (Head of the Institute), Irina Maltseva (Teacher in architecture) and Olga Svarich (Teacher in technology and organization in construction).
I recommend everyone to come study at Ural Federal University, especially at Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture to build the best career in your life. Thanks a lot.
Тункара Кадиату, группа СТ-490001 (Гвинейская Республика)
В этом году 2023, я с отличием окончу Институт строительства и архитектуры УрФУ благодаря отличной и тщательной подготовке, которую я получила, и как иностранка, я чувствовала себя как дома с большим вниманием, уважением, любовь и понимание, исходящие от моих руководителей, друзей и окружающих меня людей в России. Я очень благодарена этим смелым людям из деканата, которые очень хорошо делают свою работу, а также всем его превосходным преподавателям, которые внесли свой вклад в мое обучение, чтобы быть полезными для меня и для общества, и вы всегда будете выгравированы в моем сердце, особенно Никита Игоревич Фомин (директор института), Ирина Николаевна Мальцева (преподаватель по архитектуре) и Ольга Михайловна Сварич (преподаватель по технологии и организации в строительстве).
Я приглашаю всех приехать и учиться в этом университете, особенно в этом институте для лучшей карьеры в жизни. Спасибо большое.
It has been a pleasure to study at this institute. Lecturers and deans have been very helpful and eager to help students when they have questions or problems. Though students are treated with great hospitality by the stuff, it would be very important to improve foreign language competencies of the teachers (English and French). Through this, the institute would be even more attractive for foreign students. But all in all, l have enjoyed my studies at the Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture.
Studying at the Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture brought me a lot of positive moments and unforgettable impressions! Most of lectures were very interesting and gave much knowledge. I would like to say special thanks to the teachers of the program "Economics and Real Estate Management" for their humor and professionalism. And of course, I won’t forget the extracurricular life. For almost 4 years I was a deputy head of students' union bureau on educational and scientific work at the institute. I will always keep warm memories of student gatherings, debuts and events of the Students’ Union! Thanks for the education and staff to the most amazing institute.
Исакова Софья Игоревна, группа СТ-490005 (Республика Казахстан)
Учеба в институте Строительства и Архитектуры принесла много положительных моментов и незабываемых впечатлений! Пары, в большинстве своем, были очень интересные и знания отложились на долгую память. Отдельное спасибо хочется сказать преподавателям направления ЭУН за их юмор и профессионализм. Ну и конечно же, запомнилась внеучебная жизнь. Почти 4 года я провела в профбюро ИСА на должности заместителя по учебно-научной работе. Слёты, дебюты, мероприятия Союза Студентов навсегда останутся самыми теплыми воспоминаниями! Спасибо самому восхитительному институту за образование и людей.
A lot has happened during the 4 years of study at the Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture. In my opinion, the most valuable thing about the institute is the people who work there. First of all, about the teachers: all of them are good experts in their field, but some of them teach in a rather conservative way. Of course, you can conventionally rote the information from such a course, but from my own experience I can say that in a couple of years such information will be partially forgotten. The opposite of these methods are the methods of teaching of most of the teachers at the Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture, when you are taught everything with explanation why, how and where the information will be used during your professional activities, using modern software, showing the "tricks" of working with it on projects close to the real. As an example of such methods, I would cite such disciplines as landscaping and engineering preparation of territories. Besides, an important factor is the work of the Students' union and supervisors (here everything is great - no complaints). As for accommodation in UrFU dormitory, I personally did not have any serious troubles, so I don’t complain about any little things like delay in check in, etc.
The course had very important and unique topics, far from boring reiteration, and it was relevant to our immediate needs at this time and very tied to specialization. I studied many specialized subjects related to project management. The classes were very useful and science-based: there was constructive methodology in the course material. All our thanks and appreciation to the professors for their efforts to provide materials immediately, despite the outbreak of the coronavirus. As for the title of my master's thesis, it would be Managing Investment Projects for the Rehabilitation of Heritage Areas.
I think I absolutely love our institute. I am in my last year of studies now. Therefore, it has been about 4 years at our Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture. There are and will be a lot of kind and excellent teachers and staff here. Although I am a foreign student and I do not understand Russian very well, all information, skills and experience I received here were very useful and effective for my future life. Studying at the Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture, of course, is very difficult, especially for foreign students, but I think it is necessary for me to have a good salary and a high quality of life. Despite all the difficulties, I hope I will have an excellent result of the studies. Thanks a lot to our Institute, our faculty and staff and also to our friends! Thank you so much!
Studying the Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture makes me feel satisfied, and it has a good learning atmosphere and learning environment. Since I am a foreigner, I faced many difficulties in the learning process, but the teachers and classmates helped me a lot. The teachers were also very patient with me. Although it is still difficult, with the help of teachers and classmates I still persevere. The most important thing is to get a lot of professional knowledge.
Studying at the Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture is a unique experience, with wonderful and kind colleagues, with teachers who have unique knowledge and give the necessary support despite the fact that I do not know Russian a hundred percent, and there is no doubt that studying at the Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture, one of the best impressions and decisions I made in my life, today I can proudly say that I am a student at the Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture. In terms of its structure, it is a high-grade institute where you can find programs in various fields of study. Another advantage of studying at the Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture is that there is a lot of cultural diversity and you can find people from all over the world. It is good because you can have friends from all over the world.
I am studying building information modeling. My studies at UrFU are nearing completion, and I am very happy and proud of the experience. I studied for three years at UrFU. First, I studied Russian, and then I studied for my Master's degree. I went through the whole experience at the university, which can be summarized in three points.
1. The faculty members are very responsive (I think this is one of the most important reasons for the success of the university, as the faculty is always eager to solve students' problems and give them advice).
2. The institute uses modern teaching materials (the teaching materials and programs used are constantly being improved to meet modern requirements).
3. The Institute has many practical classes.
4. There are lots of student activities and competitions.
5. Exchange of cultures (because of the fact that the university is one of the most prestigious universities it has many students from different parts of the world enabling an exchange of cultures between students).
6. UrFU switched rapidly to distance learning and crisis management knowledge in light of the coronavirus pandemic. I consider it one of the advantages because it shows the level of development and progress of the university.
1. There is some bureaucracy in terms of issuance of some documents.
2. There is no unified integrated electronic system in all faculties of the university.
3. It is difficult to get a place in the student dormitory.
1. The university should develop an electronic system so that all university departments and their data and docs are linked to each other, making it easier to issue or change any document
2. Special attention should be given to the development of student housing by building more dormitories for students or contracting with sponsors to provide students with dormitory and hotel accommodations at lower prices in exchange for advertising sponsors' products and companies within the university and at all university events.
Highs: Our teachers and my supervisor are good specialists and responsible employees.
Lows: If possible, it is better to send an example of the coursework.
What I like at UrFU: Teachers from the Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture who reply quickly and clearly to students' messages.
I like the schedule we have, because there is free time during the day and you can do your own thing. Our teachers all work very well and teach very well. I know how to use information and apply knowledge in the studies and at work.
My name is Al-Jubouri Issa, one of the graduates of the (Institute of Building and Architecture) with a master's degree, As for me, my experience at the Institute of ( Building and Architecture ) here in Russia was one of the experiences that gave me some experience in my life in how to modern study that I was not accustomed to in my country (Iraq) and despite my very difficult beginning because of the language, but I got a lot of information that My studies in the Bachelor support, because the professors working at this institute have sufficient experience, in dealing with foreign students, and giving them the information correctly, thank you so much.

I have no doubt that all the knowledge that I receive in ISA will help me in my professional development. The study is very productive. I wish the institute prosperity, well-being and excellent students!
During the four years of study at Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture, I received deep and high-quality knowledge regarding my future profession. It is worth noting that all teaching staff are highly qualified specialists who are responsible for their work. I like the schedule of classes and the logic of building a semester program, since both technical and humanitarian subjects are harmoniously combined. If necessary, you can contact the dean's office, where employees always help to solve a particular situation.
When I was at high school, I always dreamed of studying civil engineering. When I enrolled at the university, I made new friends and gained many interesting experiences. Competent lecturers helped me to master the acquired knowledge. There always support and timely solve your problems. I am glad that I chose UrFU.
I was lucky enough to spend five years as a student of Ural Federal University. The quality of education is high, I am sure that knowledge I acquired here will be extremely useful in the future. Students and lecturers are nice and friendly, always eager to help.
Studying at Ural Federal University is a whole life, not just studies. Strict but fair lecturers are professionals in their fields! During 4 years, there were some difficulties, because there was a language barrier, but my groupmates explained me everything in simple language. I would like to thank Ekaterina Karlova, my supervisor for her understanding and support.
After 6 years of studying at the Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture at Ural Federal University, specializing in construction of unique buildings and structures, I can say with confidence that the high level of teaching made it one of the best universitites in construction in the Ural and in Russia.
Of course there were difficulties with the Russian language especially in the first years because I am a foreign student, but I overcame them thanks to the excellent faculty (responsive, know what they are teaching, professionals).
I gained a lot of invaluable skills and knowledge during my studies, which will be useful in professional life.
Next year I plan to do my PhD at the Institute of Civil Engineering and Architecture, and I am sure that the next 4 years will be wonderful and full of new and useful knowledge in construction.
Thanks to my studies in the master’s program, I received a lot of new professional knowledge. As a foreign student, I will face many difficulties, the head of the educational program, Irina Nikolaevna Maltseva, helped me a lot to overcome these problems and difficulties. She has always inspired confidence in me, thank you very much. My supervisor, Tatyana Yurievna Bystrova, was also very conscientious and responsible in guiding me towards the successful completion of my master’s thesis. This program is of great social importance and essential for the development of architecture. I recommend Russian and foreign students to enter the master’s program «Designing buildings according to the criteria of sustainable development».
