In March 2014 HSE — together with Yandex, a major Russian IT company — opened its new Faculty of Computer Science. The Faculty aims at preparing highly qualified data scientists, software engineers, and computer science researchers for leading Russian and international IT companies and academic institutions.
Faculty alumni are expected to obtain a number of competencies that can be summed up as follows:
1. Coding skills, i.e., the ability to develop an elaborate software product both individually and as part of a team;
2. Knowledge of the branches of mathematics that are fundamental for computer science and ability to handle mathematical concepts;
3. Mastery of a specific area of expertise and ability to solve tasks within a specific application domain;
4. Fluency in English that is necessary for professional work in an English-speaking environment.
The Faculty of Computer Science offers two undergraduate programmes and six graduate programmes.
In total, there are over 1200 students (including master’s and postgraduate students) studying at the Faculty in 2016/2017.
Our students are highly qualified. The Unified State Examination GPA of the freshmen enrolled in the Applied Mathematics and Information Science programme grew from 93.1 to 94.2 to 96.5 (out of 100) in 2014–2016; the GPA of those enrolled in the Software Engineering programme in 2014, 2015, and 2016 was 92.4, 92.0, and 94.9, respectively.
