The Faculty of Computer Science was created with the goal of becoming one of the world’s leading faculties for developers and researchers in data analysis, machine learning, big data, bioinformatics, system and software engineering, and system programming.
Computer Science & Information Systems
Computer science is rapidly developing, and education in this area cannot always keep up with IT industry challenges. With this in mind, Yandex created the School of Data Analysis in 2007 to provide additional training for university graduates. Soon, the need for a complete education cycle in computer science became evident. In 2014, collaborating with HSE University, Yandex helped co-found the Faculty of Computer Science. Ivan Arzhantsev, then the head of Yandex academic programmes, was made dean of the new faculty.
In cooperation with major companies like Yandex, Sberbank, SAS, Samsung, 1C, and many others, the Faculty provides both deep theoretical knowledge and hands-on practical experience in many branches of contemporary computer science.
At the same time, the Faculty collaborates with leading research centres such as Kharkevich Institute for Information Transmission Problems, Federal Research Centre for Computer Science and Control, Ivannikov Institute for Systems Programming, CERN, and Skoltech. Researchers from these institutions are involved in teaching, student supervision, and joint research projects.
The Faculty of Computer Science offers three bachelor’s degree programmes and seven master’s degree programmes.
The bachelor’s degrees are in applied mathematics and computer science, and in software engineering (instruction in Russian with some courses offered in English). There is also a double-degree data science and business analytics programme created in collaboration with the University of London (instruction in English).
The master’s programmes are in system and software engineering, statistical learning theory, and data science (instruction in English), as well as in bioinformatics, system programming, and financial technologies and data analysis (instruction in Russian with some courses offered in English). We also offer a unique fully online master’s degree programme in data science with instruction in English and the ability to study from anywhere in the world.
Any graduate is expected to be a highly skilled specialist with sufficient training in mathematics, programming, and computer science, and practical experience in a particular field
