Professor of the Saint Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics Tigran Vartanyan, who is also author of over 80 scientific articles and 2 collective monographies, is currently giving lectures on “Quantum Electronics” as a guest lecturer in Yerevan. The lectures are part of the “Quanta” Master’s Degree Program.
“I accepted the offer to give lectures through the “Quantum” Program because I am well aware of the educational system in Armenia, and I have friends here,” Vartanyan said.
In 1980, Vartanyan defended his dissertation at S.I. Vavilov State Optical Institute in Saint Petersburg. He has received several awards and is also ready to share his success stories with his students.
“I would like for students to get a picture of modern technologies and compete for spots for PhD studies,” the professor emphasized.
According to the guest lecturer, the students are content with the Program, and he hopes that this education will serve as a basis for them to achieve greater heights. Vartanyan is certain that hard work is the first thing that is necessary in order to become a good professional.
“First of all, I would advise to pay attention to knowledge stock because being involved in modern science requires higher knowledge of physics and mathematics,” he noted.
Professor Vartanyan holds an academic ranking of Senior Researcher of the Higher Attestation Commission adjunct to the Council of Ministers of the Soviet Union, has received the title of Doctor of Sciences from the Higher Attestation Commission of the Russian Federation and is a recipient of awards of the U.S. National Research Council, the German Academic Exchange Service – DAAD and Germany’s Wilhelm and Else Heraeus Foundation.
