Our advantages
  • The programme combines fundamental education in mathematics and fundamental computer science. It also provides an in-depth study of information technologies, such as: high-performance computer systems; distributed information processing methods; and Grid and Cloud computing.
  • As the topics for their research and graduation projects, students are offered problems that are of interest to specific research institutions and industry. These tasks arise due to direct contacts of lecturers with such organisations as: the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (Dubna); EPAM; and Huawei to name just a few.
  • In-depth training in mathematics and fundamental informatics makes it possible for graduates to work in various fields: from medicine to nuclear research. They can work as software developers and, what is more important, as experts who are capable, both independently and together with their colleagues, of going all the way from setting the problem to the result in the form of a software product.
