The Faculty of Computer Science, established in 2014 with the support of Yandex, prepares data specialists, analysts, computer science researchers, software engineers and SE researchers. Our research teams conduct work in data analysis, machine learning, bioinformatics, computational linguistics, software engineering, process analysis, modeling and control of complex systems. Now more than 2,100 students and 60 PhD students study at the HSE Faculty of Computer Science, at the same time more than 250 faculty members and 170 researchers work here.
The involvement of future employers in training can improve the level of education, attract the best faculty members and researchers, and develop infrastructure. Therefore, the faculty constantly cooperates with large companies and banks, as well as innovative startups.
We invite companies to join the community of computer science partners.
Cooperation with the Faculty opens up the following opportunities for companies:
- access to scientific expertise and other resources of the Faculty and the University
- promotion of the employer's brand and products among applicants and their parents, students, graduates and faculty memebers
- participation in educational activities
