Their lecturers will remotely do laboratory work and students will watch them via ZOOM platform and do the same work at home,” he noted.
Assistant Professor Lev Geonjyan of the Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences said that the coronavirus pandemic has changed the agenda of learning process and laboratory works. “Our initiative will enable students to do certain laboratory work at home. We will give our students tasks, they will conduct experiments at home and then pass exams.”
TSU is the first university in the history of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) that received American accreditation in Electrical and Electronics Engineering as well as Computer Science at the very first attempt. With ABET accreditation, graduates of Tbilisi State University will receive internationally recognized diplomas that will be competitive in any country of the world.
