The aim of the programme is to train professionals in the area of industrial production of software, information and communication technologies and systems for various purposes.
The masters programme in System and Software Engineering includes two specializations:
- Software Development Management. The specialization is aimed at training administrative managers, project managers and development teams, at a technological,economic and managerial level who will be able to organize effective administration for the projects of software development within a given budget and deadline.
- Methods and Theory of Software Engineering. Students who study this specialization, after finishing the first year, will continue their education at the partner university, and will get two diplomas when they graduate: a masters degree from the HSE and a Master of Science in Computer Science and Engineering from the Eindhoven University of Technology. The specific characteristics of the programme are the opportunity to have practical training in information and communication technologies in international companies including leaders of IT industry and to get experience of research in the leading international research teams.
Our graduates will work in leading Russian and international software manufacturers, research centers of transnational companies, system integrators and IT departments of large Russian companies and governmental bodies. They will be highly sought after professionals in a fast growing labour market, and able to effectively participate in the industrial implementation of the processes of development, maintenance and support of complex software systems.
The contents of the masters programme is fully in line with international recommendations on teaching software engineering in university masters programmes, Integrated Software and Systems Engineering Curriculum - Graduate Software Engineering 2009 (GSwE2009): Curriculum Guidelines for Graduate Degree Programs in Software Engineering, Computing Curricula 2005 and Software Engineering 2004 which are part of educational standards series Computing Curricula ACM and IEEE CS.
The curriculum covers all aspects of software production: mathematical, methodical, economic, legal, marketing and managerial basis, best international knowledge and practices of software production.
An important part of the educational process is developing teamwork skills in an environment typical for software development along with participation in real team projects, practical training and internships in leading Russian and Western companies which develop, consult and manage software projects.
During the first year all students of the System and Software Engineering masters programme study a unified curriculum without specializations. All disciplines are taught in English. The purpose of this is to prepare students for the opportunity to obtain further education at the Eindhoven University of Technology TU/e (Netherlands), as well as the creation of an environment for student mobility as part of the Bologna convention. The split into specializations takes place after the first year and depends on the students requirements and the results of the first-year studies according to the cumulative rating programme.
The masters programme involves industrial training full-time practice in leading IT companies, including partner companies. Agreements on vocational training have been signed with Microsoft, EPAM, CyberPlat, PMSOFT group, DialogNauka, International Center for Informatics and Electronics, ROSECO, TEKAMA and others.
As part of the double-degree programme, practical training and preparation of masters theses is planned in Eindhoven companies such as Philips, DAF, ASML, VDL, FEI Company, TomTom and others.
