UrFU’s Polytechnic Institute celebrates 60th anniversary

Polytechnic Institute, a branch of Yekaterinburg’s Ural Federal University (UrFU) in Kamensk-Ural, celebrated its 60th anniversary Friday.

As part of the celebration, the organizers held a dance, a football tournament, a series of relay races, a pillow fight and a tug-of-war battle.

Teachers and current students from UrFU participated in the festivities. Potential future students also attended an Open Day at the celebration.

"I'm in the 10th grade; I came here to meet with those who are now studying at UrFU,” Vic Sakharov, a student from the No. 40 school, said.

The event organizers are thankful for all of the support that helped make the event such a success. Supporters include Polytechnic Institute alumni and investors from industry.

“Thanks to them, those who have not seen each other for many years gathered at the university, and we can express our gratitude to our dear teachers and our veterans,” Igor Postnikov, director of the Kamensk branch and a graduate of Ural State University (now UrFU), said.
