Aye Min Thike
2014 graduate, assistant lecturer in Pyinoolwin Science and Technology Research Center
– Tell a few words about yourself: where do you come from? Why did you decide to choose MIET?
– My name is Aye Min Thike. I was born in Myanmar on the 22nd of April in 1990. I went to school when I was 5 and I left school at the age of 16. At school I got interested in many subjects such as physics, mathematics and others. After finishing schoolI took my entrance exams and was admitted to the Scientific Academy in Myanmar. I spent 3 years there from 2006 to 2009. Within these 3 years I did training and joined a student's scientific society. I graduated from it as a Bachelor of Science in the field of electronics and computer technologies and I was chosen to continue my education in Russian.I arrived in Russia in 2012. I am interested in information and computer technologies as I am sure future belongs to these sciences.I've been learning the Russian language since 2011, I began to study it when I was in Myanmar. I decided to study in Russia and I chose the National Research University of Electronic Technology because it is one of the best universities of Russia, preparing specialists in the field of microelectronics, information and computer technologies. I attended lectures in the programming languages, networking, database, radio electronics and many others. I gained much knowledge in these subjects.
– You graduated from Informatics and Software Chair, the name of your program is Computing Techniques in Scientific Research. Why did you decide to choose this program? What do the students study here?
– In 2014 I took a post-graduate course at the same university. I became a post graduate student and began working at the chair of high-performance computing technology department. I am involved in development and research of parallel application for wireless network topology optimization under professor Lupin. The field of my scientific interest is "System analysis, management and information processing (technical systems)". I carry out experiments and do some theoretical work. My supervisor consults me on different problems while doing research and making calculations. I am interested in learning programming languages and information technology; therefore, I have chosen the topic "System analysis, management and information processing". Nowadays information and computer technologies play one of the most important roles in our society and we want to developmore and more new technologies. Therefore, I am interested in researching many issues in this field. Many students study programming languages and computer science technology; they learn to create various software for supporting users to receive various e-services and so on.
– Before taking the main program all foreign citizens, who do not speak the Russian language, must study it for one year at the preparatory course. Tell us a little about your first year in Russia. Was it difficult to live without knowledge of the Russian language? Did your friends help you?
– I was chosen to continue my education in Russian to get a Master degreein Science. When I arrived in Russia, I spent the first year studying the Russian language, soI have been studying Russian since 2012,attending the Russian language classes together with my friends. There were 13 students in our group and our language teacher's name was Svetlana Zhukova. Every day we did our homework and discussed different problems with our teacher in the classroom. Every two weeks, we took an examination connected with the material we had learned.There are two semesters in every academic year, and at the end of every semester we took a writing exam and we had a discussion withour teacher in the Russian language.During the second semester, we attended more lectures becausewe began to study such subjects asPhysics, Mathematic and Programming language C++. We have been learning the Russian language since 2011. We began to study it whenwe were in Myanmar. Unfortunately, we didn't learn many words and grammar material of the Russian language because we didn't talk Russian much with our teachers. Therefore,when we arrived here from Myanmar, we knew a little about Russia and itslanguage, andit was difficult for us tounderstand whatthe Russian people say. So,we had many difficulties, for example, when we had to buy some food in the market, when we went by bus, metro or train, when we had some problems with our health, and when we hadto talk with doctors about our health and so on. Our Russian friends helped us in everything, for example, in the market when we were buying something, and didn't know what the seller was sayingto usour Russian friends translated all his wordsto us.
– What did you feel when you became a freshman? Was the training hard? Was there a desire to quit?
– In 2012, I became a freshman. I felt that I wanted to do my best to understand the Russian language as well as to be good at information and computer technologies and others studies. Therefore, I learned the Russian language, information and computer technologies using different sources of information: books or the Internet.I watched movies and listened to songs inthe Russian language and spoke with my Russian friends.My great desire is to master the Russian language and I try not to waste my time being here in Russia. I prefer to spend more time studying the subjects I like.
– What was the relationship with teachers like? Is there anyone who you remembered the most?
– When I found myself at the University as a freshman, the first person I met was my Russian language teacher. She was very patient and helped meevery time I couldn't understand or didn't know something. She is very good at teaching the Russian language and it wasshe who made our Russian language lessons so interesting. Duringthe second semester, we hadlectures in the Russian language, Physics, Mathematics and programming language C++. As our teachers have good knowledge in all these subjects, I can solve my scientific problems, I have good skills in writing programs and creating applications. In my mind, my teachersprovidedme with everything necessary to become a good specialist in the field of science I have chosen. I appreciatetheir knowledge,the way they explained different complicated ideas and phenomena, their recommendations. I will remember all my teachers and I will always keep them in my mind.
– Has the study at MIET satisfied your expectations?
– On my way here in Russia, I knew little both about the country and theNational Research University of Electronic Technology but my only ambition was to be a software engineer. My favorite subjects are programming languages and computer technologies.When I first came to the University, I was impressed by the building itself, its laboratories and lecture halls and so on. I was happy to meet my supervisor. He is awell-known scientistand he has muchexperience in computer science technologies. I was given many tasks to solve and in case I did not manage to solve them he explained how to do it. In my department, there are manymodern computers with many cores, cluster rooms,advanced equipment. This is a big challenge for me because I can use thesemodern computers with many cores, cluster rooms and other modern computer technologies in order to achieve my own results.I gained a lot of knowledge and experience in computer science from my supervisor. I am so happy to have an opportunity to work under my supervisor professor Lupin. Therefore, I am sure I`ve made the right choiceto study at this University and my expectations came “True”.
– Which subjects are the most memorable?
– My desire was to become asoftware engineer.What I remember most of all, when studying at the University, were the lectures in programming language and computer science because these subjects I enjoyed more than other subjects. I should say I really gained much knowledge in the field of programming languages and the theory of computer science.
– You work as an assistant lecturer in Pyinoolwin Science and Technology Research Center. Is the employer satisfied with your knowledge? What is most useful in life and at work?
– I received much knowledge about programming languages and the theory of computer sciences at the National Research University of Electronic Technology, which is very useful both in my life and at work. Using this knowledge, I continue doing research work in the field of information and computer technologies.
– Would you recommend something to our current students?
– I`ve always felt that at this University I was provided with muchknowledge about computer sciences and programming language by the teachers and supervisors.Therefore, I always say to my younger brothers that herewe can study such subjects as radio electronics, microelectronics, information and computer technologies. The knowledge you can gainis really advanced and it will help you achieve success in future.Therefore, the only thing you have to do is to study the Russian language properly and discuss different problems with Russian language teachers and friends in this language. Be patient and work hard when studying information and computer science technologies and try to discuss with teachers and supervisors the material you study and the way to solve problems.
– What are your plans for the future? What do you want to achieve?
–My future plans are: to keep learning computer sciences and programming language to develop information and computer science technologies in my country. My country is a developing one, therefore, we need to try everything necessary for its future well-being. Therefore, now I am doing my research about parallel applications for wireless network topology optimization because my country has a master plan for the development of networktopology design, to access electronic services.
The development of modern society depends on many factors. It has been observed that the factor of information technology (IT) is most important in the context of technological progress. Important indicators of development of a populated territory are the level of provision and the coverage area of telecommunication. The installation of telecom infrastructure in developing countries is even more important than for developed. Wireless technology can provide access to a variety of electronic services to residents living in remote villages. Some of the internet features can influence on the lives of small villages greatly. We need wireless communication because it is widely used in our everyday life: for example, if we access the Internet, we can work anywhere and anytime without carrying cables or wires. This also helps to complete the work anywhere on time and improves productivity.My research is very important at present andI hope the resultsI getwill be also useful in future. Nowadays, wireless communication is finding winder application in constructing of electronic services such as e-learning, e-health, e-government and e-commerce and parallel computing provides reducing the time for solving problems.
Therefore, my future work is focused on the problem of forming radio relay segments of the network that transmit a signal over long distances for providing wireless communication to access electronic services.
