This year, the theses of two students of the Faculty of Management and Economics, i.e. Zarina Begulova (the theme of the thesis: The Analysis of Dependence of the Level of Sales on Socio-Cultural Factors on Different Markets, written under the guidance of O. Skorobogatova, lecturer in the Department of Economics, Finance and Management) and Darja Aļjohina (the theme of the thesis: The Research of Corporate Social Responsibility Using an Institution of Higher Education as an Example, written under the guidance of I. Išmuhametovs, acting head of the Department of Humanities) can be particularly distinguished. Both theses were written and defended in the English language and scored 10 out of 10 points!
The commission also pointed out the topicality and high level of the theses written by:

The Faculty of Computer Science and Telecommunication can also boast of great works.
This year, many interesting theses were devoted to the development, improvement and implementation of different mathematical algorithms, traffic simulation by virtue of different approaches as well as to the use of neuron networks for the solution of different tasks, etc.
Special emphasis should be placed on the theses of Kaspars Rutkis, The Development of a System for Filling out Request Forms in a Network Environment and Valters Strelnieks, The Development of a Repository for Storing Course Description written under the guidance of B.
