The Institute of Mathematics and Information Technologies of PetrSU is preparing to launch a new Master's program "Data Science", the first students will be enrolled in 2021. Over the past two years, the teachers of the Institute have been actively involved in various professional qualification upgrading programs in the field of Data Science, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Big Data, the use of artificial neural networks, participated in research and applied projects of companies and partner universities.

The new retraining program "Machine Learning for University Teachers" of the International Scientific and Methodological Center of the National Research University – Higher School of Economics was launched on October 26, 2020. Professor Liudmila Shchegoleva of the Institute of Mathematics and Information Technologies is one of the participants. The training focuses on the machine learning methods applied in various fields and will result in a large-scale applied project under the supervision of an experienced expert.

"The global digitalization of all processes in production and the economy requires an increasing number of specialists in the field of data analysis and artificial intelligence. However, there is a clear shortage of well-trained specialists in these areas at the moment. The Faculty of Computer Science and the International Scientific and Methodological Center of the National Research University – Higher School of Economics have developed a fundamental program of retraining in the field of machine learning for Russian universities research and teaching staff. The program includes sections on Python Programming, Mathematics for Data Analysis, Machine Learning, Big Data, and Deep Learning. In November 2020, 20 teachers from various Russian universities embarked on the training program. The training will take approximately a year and will be completed with a presentation of the project. After completion, teachers will be able to use the knowledge acquired for their research, as well as upgrade the educational programs for students at their universities", said Ilya Samonenko, the Deputy Dean of the Faculty of Computer Science of the National Research University – Higher School of Economics, Head of the International Scientific and Methodological Center of the National Research University – Higher School of Economics.

Liudmila Shchegoleva noted,

“Classes are held at a high level, theoretical material is systematic and comprehensive. A large number of practical examples are given. Live communication during webinars facilitates better understanding and processing new knowledge.”

“In cooperation with the International Scientific and Methodological Center of the National Research University – Higher School of Economics, a large group of teachers of the Institute of Mathematics and Information Technologies are currently training in various qualification upgrading programs, in particular, artificial intelligence. It is an excellent opportunity for our teachers to acquire new knowledge online in relevant areas, master new competencies required, gain practical experience, and also communicate with colleagues from leading Russian universities", commented Nina Svetova, the Director of the Institute of Mathematics and Information Technologies.
