Reviews of applicants who visited the Open Day of ICIS and IFES:

Vasily Petrov, 11th grade: I want to enter the direction "Information security". It seems to me that information security is important, especially in a world where information technologies are rapidly developing. Russia is a leader in that sphere, but I would also like to gain experience by taking internships in other countries.

Elizaveta Grinenko, 10th grade: I am studying at the school of programmers, and I would like to do computer graphics in the future. I am interested in applied mathematics and computer science. This will help to realize my dream – not only to program, but also logically understand what I'm doing. At MEPhI I will be taught to think and understand the physics.

Alexander Spanagel, 8th grade: I want to do robotics because, in my opinion, robots and artificial intelligence are the future of humanity. I have time to think, everything can change, but I am considering MEPhI as a potential univeristy where I would like to study.
