K. Krštich, a school participant from the University of Belgrade shared her impressions: "We liked the program of the school very much, we have learned a lot for two weeks of training. For example, we got acquainted with the basics of work in Ansys, we have not studied this program before, because different software is used at our universiy. Lessons of the Russian language were also very interesting. Novosibirsk is a beautiful city, the cultural program of the school allowed us to get acquainted with many places of interest: various museums, sights, Academgorodok. Our specialty is "Hydraulic structures and water treatment", so it was very interesting for us to study the operation of large treatment facilities, which we visited here. When we went to the lock, we saw the process of locking the ship - it was awesome! We all liked it very much and we hope that next year the program of the school will also be very interesting for students of Novosibirsk in Serbia and for us in Novosibirsk! "
