International Day of Women and Girls in Science

11 February 2024

This International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we recognize the contribution of all the women and girls who contribute to the scientific and economic development of Ukraine. Professor Viktoria Voropaieva is one of 16 female teachers in Ukraine who took part in a five-month professional course on industrial hydraulics and pneumatics, collaborative robotics, automation of control systems and other topics organized by the International Development Company and Festo Company with support from USAID’s Economic Resilience Activity.  

“Most of our students now study online, so they urgently need modern tools to gain practical skills in remote control of robotic systems. The modules that we developed during this training effectively solve this problem, allowing students to calculate, design and program robotic tools and robotic systems for various purposes, develop algorithms for their operation,” says Viktoria Voropaieva, Professor of the Department of Automation and Telecommunications of the Donetsk National Technical University. 

The teachers will share this knowledge their engineering students at seven different universities in Ukraine, providing them with cutting-edge technical expertise and ultimately more professional oppotunities.
