NEFU student won bronze at 10th WorldSkills National Championship
Aleksandr Gavriliev, a student of the College of Infrastructure Technologies at North-Eastern Federal University, entered the top 3 in the “Game Software Tester”. This competence was presented for the first time at the 10th WorldSkills National Championship initiated by Mordovia.
“I study information systems and programming in the college. Before WorldSkills, I competed in various hackathons. Participation in events such as the 10th National Championship raises the spirit. Now I want to put all the gained experience into practice - as a software tester. My advice to students - no matter what, do not forget about technical problems during the competition, they are always waiting for you. Be ready for anything and don’t lose faith in yourself if it happens to you,” said Aleksandr Gavriliev.
“Considering that our competence is new, all the guys showed a good result. The contestants had equal chances: they were close, there was no obvious winner. I rate Aleksandr's result very high. He trained every day, and we also went to Saransk, to a company that tests gaming software products. His mentor saw how Aleksandr had grown in his skills and was very satisfied with his good training,” said Aya Nogovitsyna, a compatriot expert, teacher of the 1st category at the Department of Operation and Maintenance of Information Systems.
In the finals of the 10th National Championship, almost 1,000 students of professional educational institutions of the country from 16 to 25 years old and juniors under 16 demonstrated their skills in a distance and face-to-face format in 66 competencies. Their work was evaluated by more than 1,200 experts from all over the country. At the initiative of Mordovia, two competencies are presented for the first time - they are necessary for the republic to satisfy the regional demands of business and the economy: "Camp activity" and "Game Software Tester".
