You can count them with fingers on one hand: the day of your birthday, the day when you got education, and when you founded a family. Remember about this! Now you have the name of a graduate of our university, and the way you’ll show yourselves in companies where you’ll work, they’ll judge about us. And I ask you to show yourselves and our university deservedly. I congratulate you and suggest starting the ceremony of conferring diplomas because, of course, you are anticipating it.

The ceremony started with the graduates in Linguistics and the floor was given to Aleksandr Elensky, Head of Department of Language Training in Professional Sphere:

— I would like to congratulate not only translators but all graduates present here with getting diplomas and graduation from the university. I believe you will be proud for your whole lives that you graduated from ISTU: we are well-known, people know Izhevsk State Technical University and name of Mikhail Kalashnikov, our university has extensive relations and friends in many countries of Europe, Africa, Asia. We know Egypt very well. I started working with Dr. Sherif on establishing our coalition — our joint training. And I am very happy that our Egyptian friends are now coming to us to study and love our university.

My graduates-translators, I am proud of you! For me it was also a challenge. I had different positions at our university, and I started everything with you from scratch and I am really happy that we managed everything. We faced a lot of problems but we overcame them! I wish you, first of all, to find job in your specialty and continue learning during your whole lives, and remember — a foreign language can be easily forgotten. Good luck!
