FIRST KHARKIV STUDENT DEFENDED THESIS BY SKYPE
For the first time professors of Computer Science College under Kharkiv National Technical University evaluated thesis defence by skype.
In April 2014 one of the student, Georgiy Krestovnikov, passed all exams, submitted his thesis and left for Sevastopol. However, because of the recent events in Ukraine he was not able to return to Kharkiv.
Considering thesis submission and good grades Georgiy was allowed to defend his thesis online. The head of the commission, five members of attestation committee and student’s mother were present at thesis defence. The defence lasted about half an hour. Georgiy read a report, answered all professors questions and as a result received a highest grade and technical qualification.
