University in the US located at the NASA. It is located in the “Silicon Valley”. Every year, they spend Global impact Challenge, which allows one person from the country to go to study in the Valley. To enter, you must submit the idea and pass the competition.
FEL student group DS-41 Anton Baumann managed to do at the beginning of the semester.
Our student shares his impressions of this competition:
With Ukraine chose 10 finalists. And they began to take Mentorship program (This is the first time in Ukraine).
This mentoring program implies that the contestants are preparing for the final speech, which organizers get from the valley who are teachers and university (to come finalists Raymond McCauley and Thomas Krise), except that they are co-founders of the university. In the mentoring program studied with the best teachers of different technologies dedicated to the development of projects and ideas, such as those of science: Evolution of law and ethics Smart Cities Genetics IoT, Sensors, Networks Energy 3d-Printyg Gamification Exponential Technology. This program supports the largest organization of Google, Microsoft, Autodesk, …. After the mentoring program received a certificate of successful completion (it means a lot in terms of employment in global companies, access to technology and laboratories). They signatures of the founders of the Institute. According to the final result was one winner, who will go on further implementation of the project in the US (because I do not have 21, I could be a winner and my project is in the incubator of the next year).
On 02-04 December 2016 the thrid scientific conference of students Generation – Transmission – Use GPW will take place in Wrocław University of Technology Conference and Training Centre “Radość”. During the conference the research work of students, graduate students and members of the Association of Polish Electrical Engineers will be presented.
Scientific Conference is a project which primary goal is to create a platform for exchange and presentation of research results and achievements in the field of generation, transmission, distribution and use of electricity and electrical security.
The conference also addresses issues of regulation, control devices, electrical machines and measuring power parameters. We hope that event will contribute to establish new valuable contacts and effective promotion of the achievements of young scientists and engineers.

Main topics of the seminar:
– the features of teaching specialized subjects in English;
– skills of teachers of specialized subjects in English;
– challenges that arise while teaching special subjects in English;
– key factors for successful class;
– short tasks to improve interactivity.

Full details of the award and the process may be found here (http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/
services/academicoffice/gsp/ scholarship/typesoffunding/ chancellorsinternational/), but the following are the highlights:
- The deadline for applicants to submit their application is Wednesday 18 January 2017 (23:59 GMT), after which we will sift the applications for recommendation to the university. Whilst the supervisor statement is written after the deadline, no other changes can be made to the application by the applicant or their prospective supervisor.
- Mandatory requirements, essentially the official eligibility. The student must:
- be ‘overseas’ for fees purposes.
- have the offer of a place at the University (and hence a gentle reminder that you cannot accept a student subject to this funding), or be within the first year of their PhD studies in the School.
- have obtained or be expected to obtain at least an upper second class honours degree (or equivalent) from a recognised institution of higher education before 31 July 2017.
- meet the English requirements (e.g. IELTS of 6.5 overall with no component less than 6.0).
- complete the application form (see link above for full details), including two references, exam transcripts, a research proposal and details of any publications and prizesThe proposals are sifted within the School using the same criteria the University uses(http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/services/academicoffice/gsp/scholarship/typesoffunding/chancellorsinternational/pgr_scoring_criteria.pdf).
- Students will need to score at least 9/10 in the scoring criteria.
- They need a first class honours degree in everything they submit (BEng/MEng). This is essential as the score, marked out of 5, for education is worth 50% of the total marks.
- They need a top class research proposal that is relevant and practicable within the School, well considered and well referenced. If they don’t have a good research proposal, the application is highly unlikely to make it passed the internal sifting.
- Previous publication(s) and awards/prizes really help. Having neither is likely problematic.
- They will need a very strong supporting statement, written, post-shortlisting, by the supervisor.
