Metropolia’s IT student Tatyana Krylosova has just returned from a prize trip at Cisco headquarters in California. She is one of the 2013 EMEA NetRiders Winners, with overall top female score.

Cisco® NetRiders IT Skills Competition is a prestigious networking technology competition designed to test students’ knowledge of networking technologies and to prepare them for on-the-job challenges as they enter the workforce. At the competition, contestants use their IT and networking knowledge through simulation activities in which they build, configure and troubleshoot virtual networks.

The competition took place on 24th September 2013. Altogether 172 students from 57 countries participated in the competition simultaneously online, across five time zones.

- The main challenge in the competition was the time limitation, there was almost no time to think, which required high concentration of attention. It was definitely an interesting experience. The prize was not my main motivation, but it was exciting to challenge myself and compete for the higher ranking position. Winning gave me increased confidence in my ability to succeed in the field of networking. It motivates me to learn and practice more, to set new goals and move forward, says Tatyana Krylosova.

A Grand Prize Trip to Cisco Headquarters

The winners of each of the seven categories were invited to go on a Cisco sponsored one-week study tour to California's Silicon Valley. The trip took place 12th - 18th of January 2014. The students spent a working week at Cisco headquarters in San Jose, met with senior executives, systems engineers and experts from Cisco and other information technology companies and experienced the California lifestyle with trips to San Francisco and Stanford University.

To Tatyana Krylosova the week brought many new experiences.

- We had a very busy week in San Jose. Most of time we spent in Cisco campuses where we had tours to Cisco Laboratories and Data Center and met with a senior executive, engineers and Networking Academy staff, who willingly shared their professional knowledge and expertise. We also participated in the interactive activities aimed at improving Cisco Networking Academy and tested a new version of network simulation software. Other than that, we visited Stanford University and enjoyed the sunny weather in Santa Cruz and San Francisco, tells Tatyana Krylosova about the trip.

According to Tatyana Krylosova being surrounded by the newest technologies and enthusiastic people was really inspiring.

- No less important is that the NetRiders winners became good friends, and we all hope that someday we will meet again, she says.
