2017 is not just another calendar period for Sumy National Agrarian University: it's time to sum up and build plans for the future. 40 years of rapid take-off, 40 years of hopes and successes, overcoming the complexities and embodying the most daring projects, 40 years of development.
The activity and success of each educational institution is evaluated first of all by the success of its graduates. Over the past 40 years, 52,800 young professionals, who graduated from SNAU, have got the opportunity to build their own career and business. Our graduates are known far beyond Sumy region, they work fruitfully in state institutions, enterprises of different forms of property, but do not forget about their native university and always return with joy to the establishment.
So the invitation to SNAU graduate forum, “A step towards a successful career” that took place on November 4, 2017, became a pleasant surprise for almost 200 graduates of SNAU and the opportunity to visit their native university.
The event began at the Youth and Entertainment Center with the presentation "SNAU: 40 Years of Development", conducted by the University rector VolodymyrLadyka, Vice-Rector for Pedagogical and Educational ActivityValeriiZhmaylov and Vice-rector for Scientific Activity OleksandrMaslak. By the way, all of them are also graduates of SNAU. Well, no one else but the first rector of SNAU Ivan Briukhovetskycan tell about the foundation and formation of the university. Ivan Mykolaiovych, the founder of our university and now the honorary professor and counselor of the rector, reminded how everything began, how the university was created - at that time a branch of Kharkiv Agricultural Institute named after Dokuchaev.
The graduates of past years were interested to find out what new specialties were opened at our university. The presentation of two educational programs that were opened at SNAU last year was conducted by the dean of the Faculty of Engineering and Technology MykhailoDovzhyk, who spoke about the educational master's program "Precision Agriculture" and the dean of the Faculty of Economics and Management Natalia Strochenko with the presentation of the Master's educational program "Regional management".
Our university has a wonderful tradition of planting trees on one or another solemn occasion. Today, the graduates together with the students planted an alley of trees dedicated to this memorable meeting.After that they went to their faculties, where excursions and communication with students were organized.
