The doors of our higher educational establishments are open

to all who wish to continue their study after graduating from

secondary schools.

The Siberian State Academy of Geodesy was founded in 1932 in

Omsk but a year later it was moved to Novosibirsk. And now it is

one of the two geodetic institutes in our country which trains

highly qualified specialists.

The majority of our students enter the Academy after

graduating from secondary schools, but some of them have some

experience in the chosen career.

In accordance with the entrance requirements applicants

should take exams in Mathematics and Russian. If they pass them

successfully they become first-year students.

In our Academy there are evening, correspondence and

preliminary departments. The present day Academy includes four

Institutes: Cadastre and Geographic Information Systems, Optics

and Optical Technologies, Geodesy and Management and

Aerophotogeodesy. We have a post-graduate course as well. So the

best graduates may continue their studies and carry on research

work in well-equipped laboratories. Research workers of our

Academy guide students scientific societies. Many of our

scientists have candidate's and doctor's degrees.

Thus, our students have a wide choice of jobs opportunities,

they may work in different fields of national economy or research


The training course at the Academy lasts 5 or 6 years. There

are two terms in each academic year and at the end of each term

the students take tests and exams.

The state grant is distributed among those students who have

good exam results. When the exams are over the students have

their vacation, winter and summer. At the end of the fourth year

students are sent for a few months to a plant or research

institute in order to get some practical experience in business.

The whole training course is followed by a final project. After

graduating from the Academy students become engineers in their

chosen field.

Astrogeodesy is the part of astronomy which deals with

determination of azimuths and positions on the earth's surface

based on observation of asters. This section of astronomy is very

important for solving economic and practical tasks of geodesy.

Astronomical fixations (astrofixes) are inseparable from

surveying and mapping. They are used to determine coordinates of

different points on the earth's surface as well as their latitude

and longitude. For this purposes it is necessary to know exact

local time at the moment of observation. Determination of azimuth

is very important for geodesy and cartography. The point with

coordinates determined by means of astronomical observations is

called an astronomical point (Laplace point). Laplace azimuths

are considered as geodetic azimuths of triangulation lines

determined by astrogeodetic observations.

Astrofixes together with geodetic and gravimetric

determinations provide initial geodetic data and orientation of

the state geodetic control network. They are useful for grade

measurements and figure-of-the earth study.

Star observations are an integral part of the geodetic

control network.

Not long ago astrofixes were necessary for topographical

surveys in the remote regions with a poor geodetic network

provision. Nowadays when the amount of large-scale surveys is

growing, many of the geodetic control points are being recovered.

To do this, bearing angles should be detected by astronomical


Methods of astrogeodesy are utilized in space exploration

for base adjustment of spatial triangulation and for setting

astronomical coordinates of spatial triangulation points. The

methods may also be used to fix coordinates of artificial


Astronomical observations make it possible to determine

positions of reference points on the earth's surface to be used

for topographical surveys.

Astronomical fixations of geographic coordinates and

azimuths are widely used in applied geodesy for geodetic coverage

of engineering works.

Optics is a science concerning with the genesis and

propagation of light, the changes that it undergoes and produces,

and other phenomena closely associated with it. There are two

major branches of optics: physical and geometrical. Physical

optics deals primarily with the nature and properties of light

itself. Geometrical optics has to do with the principles that

govern the image-forming properties of lenses, mirrors, and other


- 17 -


devices that make use of light. It also includes optical data

processing, which involves the manipulation of the information

content of an image formed by coherent optical systems.

The ancient Greeks and Arabs had some knowledge of the

nature and properties of light. The foundations of the science of

optics, however, were not established until the 17th century.

During the early 1600s Galileo Galilei constructed the first

telescopes that could be employed for astronomical observation.

In the 1650s the French mathematician Pierre de Fermat succeeded

in deriving the law of refraction from a principle attributed to

the Greek geometer Hero of Alexandria (1st century AD), according

to which reflected light traverses the shortest distance between

two points compatible with meeting the reflecting surface. By the

end of the century the Dutch mathematician-physicist Christian

Huygens provided a mechanical explanation of reflection and

refraction in his (1690; Treatise on Light) related light to wave

motion. In 1704 Isaac Newton published his Optics.

Newton's views, especially his particle theory of light,

came to dominate scientific thought for more than a century,

completely overshadowing Huygens' contributions.

During the early 1800s Thomas Young, an English physician

and physicist, resurrected the wave theory of light. This

conception held sway among the next several generations of

investigators, including the British physicist James Clerk

Maxwell, whose electromagnetic theory of light (1864) is

generally considered the foremost achievement of classical


The groundwork for modern optics was laid by the

introduction of quantum theory at the turn of the century. The

theory, proposed in 1900 by Max Plank of Germany, explained that

radiant energy is emitted in discrete units, or quanta. In 1905

Albert Einstein extended this idea of light and demonstrated

that, in the photoelectric effect, light behaves as though all of

its energy were concentrated in minute particles later called

photons. Einstein's finding, coupled with the electromagnetic

theory, led to the present-day view that light behaves like waves

in certain situations and like particles in others.

Two major developments, the emergence of communication and


- 18 -


information theory in the 1950s and invention of the laser in the

early 1960s, ushered in a new era in optics.

VIII. Translate the text using a dictionary:

The manipulation of the content of an image by means of

optical systems using coherent light (i.e., light of a single

frequency or colour in which all the components are in step with

each other) became a subject for serious study in the 1950s. The

laser provided an ideal tool for optical data processing and

communication. It gave rise to significant advances in

holography, a two-step coherent image-forming process in which an

intermediate record is made of the complex optical field

associated with an object. One of the more notable applications

of holography in the area of optical information processing is

binary data storage and retrieval.

The laser has proved to be a very efficient means of

transmitting audio and video information (e.g., telephone

conversations and television programs). It is superior to

ordinary electronic transmitters for several reasons. Because the

frequency of laser light is appreciably higher than that of radio

waves, for example, a laser beam can carry substantially more

information. Furthermore, since a laser beam is highly

directional, it is able to transmit information with very little

interference and over long distances.

Management is a function of planning, organizing,

coordination, direction and controlling. Any managerial system,

at any managerial level, is characterized in terms of these

general functions.

The term "management" refers to those people who are

responsible for making and carrying out decisions within the


An individual manager is a person who directly supervises

people in a profit-making organization. Some basic

characteristics seem to apply to managers in all types of

organization. They include hard work on a variety of specific

activities. For example, marketing management refers to a broad

concept covering organization of production and sales of

products, which is based on consumer requirements research. All

companies must look beyond their present situation and develop a

long-term strategy to meet changing conditions in their industry.

Marketing management, therefore, consists of evaluating market

opportunities, selecting markets, developing market strategies,

planning marketing tactics and controlling marketing results.

Strategic planning includes defining the company's long-term

and specific objectives, such as sales volume, market share,

profitability and innovation, and deciding on financial, material

and other resources necessary to achieve those objectives.

One of the key concepts in market selection and product

planning is that of the Product Life Cycle. It means that every

product passes through various stages between life and death:

introduction, growth, maturity, decline. A company should have a

mix of products with representation in each of these stages. When


- 22 -


the concept of the Product Life Cycle is forgotten in marketing

planning, it leads to wrong decision-making.

Important changes in the demand for particular products and

services are continuously occuring. Management should respond to

such changes. To be successful it is necessary to understand and

learn how to use effective marketing tools.

Advertizing, trade shows, service activity, pricing and

packaging in combination produce sales, and are usually referred

to as a kind of "marketing mix". The objective of business is to

find a marketing mix which at a given point of time will prove to

be profitable.
