“I suggested establishing at the universities centers for IT elaborations – so called majoring construction bureaus that will train and keep IT specialists at the university level. The Centers will carry out the orders on IT solutions made by the government or companies by engaging experts on the subject, as well as post-graduate and undergraduate students and interested specialists. We suppose that the financing will take the hybrid scholarship-contract form that will allow us to grow expertise, quality and the amount of the elaborations made stage by stage ”, - shared Andrei Philippóvich.
The key condition of the financial support given to the Centers is in author`s opinion an obligatory engagement of the employees into the educational process – that will allow to carry out mass training of the practicing specialists with a decent level of competencies and increase the quality of project activity for students in short-term.
Such Centers, according to Andrei Philippóvich, will help solve a range of problems, such as the lack of IT personnel, demand increase for phase out activities in the sphere, as well as the lack at the HIEs of the current IT employees who can handle relevant technologies
