Robo Camp

In January this year the RTU Foundation Course Unit organized the winter school ROBO CAMP in cooperation with RTU Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology, RTU Design Factory and  RTU Department of Computer Aided Engineering Graphics. In ROBO CAMP there were students from Australia, Russia, India and Algeria. During the camp students had practical classes, hands-on activities,  lectures and field trips to the companies representing the robotics field in Latvia. Lectures were delivered not only by RTU lecturers, but also by a quest lecturer from Brazil. In three weeks students had a chance to go through the whole process from idea to real, tangible result with final outcome – three projects of functioning robots-prototypes. The RTU Foundation Course Unit would like to express gratitude to all the lecturers and departments involved as well as participants of the ROBO CAMP for the hard work and devotion to their project.

Especially FSD wants to highlight Ruslan Batalov who graduated the Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology with distinction and Kamran Ayub who obtained a doctoral degree at Automation and Computer Engineering.

Kamran Ayub says that each student should answer the following questions before carrying out scientific research:

  • Do you like the topic of research?
  • Is there a concrete timeline?
  • How is your supervisor as a person? What do his or her employees say? Is he or she active on publishing? Do you have the feeling that you can work together?

Kamran Ayub also advices students to use social media while doing research. He says: “You should connect with people, exchange ideas, collaborate.” He also admits that it is always a good idea to become a member of PhD or postdoc association in your institute. The last but not the least he says is to make sure that you have a long term plan for yourself, have in mind what you want to do next. In the meanwhile, make sure you have all tools you need for your next step.
