In March 2014, HSE University—together with Yandex, a major Russian IT company—opened its new Faculty of Computer Science. The Faculty aims at preparing highly qualified data scientists, analysts, software engineers, and computer scientists.
Faculty alumni are expected to obtain advanced coding skills, knowledge of mathematics essential for computer scientists, as well as fluency in English.
The Faculty combines high-quality teaching of mathematics traditional for Russia with state-of-the-art computer science education well-grounded in practical work. Russian IT companies and research institutions, working in collaboration with HSE University, provide students with the ability to gain practical skills as well as theoretical knowledge through lectures, seminars, research projects, and internships.
Bachelor's degree programmes
The curricula of all our programmes are flexible and can be tailored to the student’s individual needs. As part of HSE University, the Faculty of Computer Science offers a number of minors and extracurricular courses in various branches of natural sciences, humanities, and foreign languages.
One of the Faculty’s primary goals is the development of international cooperation. Working together with major universities and IT companies of the world, we offer a wide range of scholarships, internships, and project work. We employ world-class specialists in computer science and mathematics from all around the globe.
