Master's Degree - Software Development

Campus Full time 3 semesters September 2018 Russia St. Petersburg

The training program is based on modern international standards [+]

MSc - Software Development

Language of instruction: Russian

The training program is based on modern international standards, following consultations with representatives of the largest IT companies, whose employees are also involved in teaching. In addition to basic courses (software development technologies, object-oriented programming, databases), specialized subjects (data mining, development of language processors, etc.) are also taught. The main emphasis is on individual practical work with students developing software. In the fifth year, this work consists in the fulfillment of the project chosen by the student under the guidance of a teacher of the department or a representative of the company. The project implementation assumes both individual work of the student, and weekly personal meetings of the student with the teacher (at least an hour per week). On the sixth course, students from groups of 3-4 people are formed, working under the guidance of the teacher to develop either open source software or mini-projects for companies (Yandex, Parallels, JetBrains, EMC)....
