Mishustin allocated 1.5 billion rubles to assess the quality of training of IT specialists

In May 2022, Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin signed a decree that allocated more than 1.5 billion rubles to assess the quality of training IT specialists in higher educational institutions.

According to the press service of the Cabinet, we are talking about a federal subsidy that will be used to organize an assessment - a comprehensive assessment of the potential and real level of development of digital competencies of students who receive additional qualifications at "digital departments" in Russian universities that participate in the Priority 2030 program. In 2022, it is planned to allocate almost 321 million rubles for these purposes, in 2023 - 521.4 million and in 2024 - 698 million rubles. The money will be used to pay teachers participating in testing, as well as to rent premises and purchase the necessary software.

Students will be offered tests according to the subject of their supplementary training programmes. The test results will allow assessing the level of digital competencies of students after graduation at the "digital departments." It is planned that in 2022 more than 80 thousand people will take part in the testing, and by 2024 their number will grow to 385 thousand. Now 106 universities participating in the Priority 2030 program have joined the student assessment project. The Innopolis University has been appointed the Assembly Center.

The Government of the Russian Federation has launched a project for the development of higher education - Priority 2030 so that young people can receive high-quality and sought-after education. As part of this initiative, universities from all Russian regions are provided with grants - more than 100 million rubles each. By May 2022, 121 universities are participating in the program, almost two-thirds of universities are regional. The Government allocated over 15 billion rubles to support them. These funds are expected to help open student technology parks, business incubators, as well as upgrade laboratories.[1]

The authorities want to revive the student distribution system after graduation. Start with IT shniks

On April 26, 2022, it became known that the development council digital economy at Federation Council the university made a proposal for the return of the student distribution system after their graduation from educational institutions. This idea was voiced as part of a package of other proposals for the development of personnel potential in the the Russian IT industry. More. here

24.5 thousand budget places in the field of electronics allocated in universities

For the 2022/2023 academic year, 24.5 thousand budget places were allocated in Russian universities in the areas of electronics. This was announced in mid-April 2022 by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko. According to him, over 2 years the number of such budget places has grown by almost 2 thousand.

We are talking about specialties and training areas included in the enlarged groups "Electronics, Radio Engineering and Communication Systems," "Materials Technologies," "Nanotechnologies and Nanomaterials." Young people can apply for undergraduate, specialty, master's and graduate programs.

Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko said that for the 2022/2023 academic year, 24.5 thousand budget places were allocated in Russian universities in areas in the field of electronics.

The Minister of Science and Higher Education of Russia Valery Falkov in mid-April 2022 noted that more than 18.6 thousand places in the field of electronics were allocated for undergraduate and specialty programs, that is, for those children who can start work immediately after graduation. In total, over the past two years, the number of seats has increased by 1.9 thousand, he added.

Dmitry Chernyshenko emphasized that Russia has great potential for creating domestic electronic products, but solving this problem is impossible without training professional personnel.

According to the press service of the Cabinet, one of the leading universities in the training of specialists in the areas of "Electronics, Radio Engineering and Communication Systems," "Materials Technologies," "Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials" was St. Petersburg Polytechnic University Peter the Great (SPbPU). The basis for training personnel in the electronic and electronic industry is the Institute of Electronics and Telecommunications SPbPU and the scientific laboratories of industrial partners, said Elena Razinkina, Vice-Rector for Educational Activities at SPbPU.[2]

83 master's programs in AI are launched in universities of Russia

On March 16, 2022, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation announced the launch of 83 master's programs in artificial intelligence in Russian universities. The first universities that in the 2022/23 academic year will begin the implementation of master's programs in the profile "Artificial Intelligence" will be:

According to Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko, master's programs in artificial intelligence are prepared by leading universities, based on the requests and needs of enterprises in sectors of the economy, and special emphasis is placed on regional universities. Programs will be launched in 2022.

File:Aquote1.png
In the current situation, high-quality training of specialists in the field of IT and artificial intelligence for high-tech industries is especially important for us. The information security of the country and the level of technology development will depend on their professionalism and level of competence. The higher education system seeks to quickly respond to challenges by developing relevant training programs, "he said.
File:Aquote2.png

In addition, the educational module "Artificial Intelligence Systems" is being introduced into Russian universities. It can be used in the implementation of educational programs in all areas of training and specialties of all levels of higher education and additional professional programs. It is noted that the module can be supplemented with topics and sections taking into account the level and professional orientation of a particular program.[3]

2021

The number of budget places in the field of AI in universities of Russia has increased sharply

On November 25, 2021, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko announced an increase in the number of budget places in Russian universities in areas related to the development of artificial intelligence - there were 7 thousand more in accordance with the order of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

According to the Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, in 2021, more than 80 thousand people received higher education programs in the field of information technology at the expense of the federal budget. Under secondary education programs related to artificial intelligence, 97 thousand Russian schoolchildren will be trained. According to the calculations of the authorities, by 2024 about 500 thousand Russians will have education related to the IT sphere.

Dmitry Chernyshenko also said that within the framework of the federal project "Artificial Intelligence" by 2024, 10 undergraduate and 40 master's programs in the areas of "Artificial Intelligence" will appear in universities.

The Deputy Prime Minister also drew attention to the importance of interaction between digital transformation experts, scientific institutions and higher education. The involvement of young scientists and students in the forum contributes to the popularization of scientific research aimed at improving the quality of life and increasing the competitiveness of the economy, he added.

Earlier in 2021, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education summed up the results of the competition for the distribution of budget places in universities for 2022-2023 years. According to the results of the competition, engineering and technical areas of training (251,033 places) and pedagogical (75,788 places) received the most places with budget funding.

In a message to the Federal Assembly, President Vladimir Putin said that in 2021 about 60% of school graduates will be able to enter universities for budget places, and in the next two years an additional 45 thousand such places will appear at universities[4]

Increase in the number of budget places for IT specialties in universities of the Russian Federation by 25%, up to 80 thousand.

The number of budget places for IT specialties in universities Russia in the 2021/2022 academic year was increased by 25%, to 80 thousand. This was announced at the end of January 2021 by the deputy chairman Governments of the Russian Federation Dmitry Chernyshenko during a meeting with the leaders of the digital transformation of subjects and regional executive bodies with the participation of the Minister of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Communications. Maksut Shadaeva

According to Chernyshenko, the total number of budget places in IT specialties is planned to increase 2.5 times by 2024. This will affect almost all regions and all areas in this area.

The President set the task to ensure the digitalization of 10 main sectors of the economy, which cannot be solved without a team of strong professionals in the IT sector... We will actively increase the digital education of specialists in other industries. This is a joint task of both the state and business, "he added.
File:Aquote2.png

The Deputy Prime Minister stressed that under the bachelor's degree programs, the number of budget places will grow in almost all regions and in all areas in the field of information technology. For example, in Ingushetia, in the specialty "Computer Science and Computing" in the 2021/2022 academic year, 3 times more budget places are planned, in the Novgorod region - 80%. More than 60% will increase the number of seats in Mordovia, the Ryazan region and the Stavropol Territory. In Moscow and the region under this program, growth will be 15%.

File:Aquote1.png
Take another specialty - "Electronics, radio engineering and communication systems." The number of seats on the budget in the Lipetsk and Vologda regions will double. We see how the proportions change in relation to the capital. It is important for us that young people have the opportunity to receive a good free education in their region, "Chernyshenko added.[5]

2020

The State Duma asked the Ministry of Digital Affairs to stop the reorganization of IT universities

On December 7, 2020, it became known that the State Duma Committee on Information Policy, Information Technology and Communications asked the Ministry of Digital Affairs to stop the reorganization of universities subordinate to Rossvyaz.

We are talking about Rossvyaz's plans to transform the St. Petersburg State University of Telecommunications named after Bonch-Bruevich (SPbGUT), the Siberian State University of Telecommunications and Informatics (SibGUTI) and the Volga State University of Telecommunications and Informatics (PGUTI) into branches of the Moscow Technical University of Communications and Inform.

File:Aquote1.png
The implementation of this plan will lead to the loss of existing educational potential. The actual liquidation of independent universities, each of which is the largest interregional scientific and educational center. All these universities are highly effective, graduates have great demand in the labor market - 80-90% of them immediately arrange a specialty, "said committee chairman Alexander Khinshtein, whose words are quoted by the press service of United Russia.
File:Aquote2.png

According to the deputy, the deprivation of independence of universities will lead to a sharp reduction in scientific and educational activities, since it will be necessary to "cut" dissertation councils and close scientific journals. In addition, becoming branches, universities will not be able to conclude contracts for research and development work with third-party organizations, and previously concluded agreements will be terminated. Budget places will also be reduced, independent graduate school will close, universities will not be able to conduct innovative developments together with their regions within the framework of scientific and educational centers (NOC), said Hinstein.

It is noted that the initiative to optimize these universities caused sharp resistance of teachers, students and the scientific community in the regions.[6]

Authorities compensate Russians for 50% of the costs of additional education in IT specialties

The authorities compensate the Russians for half of the costs of additional education in IT specialties, RFMaksut Shadaev, the Ministry of Digital Affairs of the Russian Federation, said at a meeting of the Federation Council Committee on Economic Policy in early November 2020.

File:Aquote1.png
This is a very important story, it was also not there and it is also a consequence of COVID-19 in many ways. Many people now want to get additional professional education in the field of digital technologies... The state decided that we are ready to compensate for 50% of people's expenses for completing a vocational training program by passing exams at the end of these programs. And for certain categories we will compensate 100%, "he said.

Russian authorities compensate Russians for 50% of the cost of additional education in IT specialties

According to the minister, passing the program of additional vocational education in the IT sector can cost 100-200 thousand rubles. Russians will be able to receive compensation after mastering the professions of a programmer, data analyst, etc. Shadaev did not specify in which cases it will be possible to count on full reimbursement of training. The main thing is that the person reaches the end of the program, he said.

In addition, it is planned to introduce programs to teach IT skills in universities that are not related to the digital sector. For example, for future agricultural technicians or aircraft designers.

File:Aquote1.png
Because it is clear that now no profession is de facto impossible without an in-depth understanding of digital competencies, digital solutions, and so on, the minister believes.
File:Aquote2.png

The State has provided funding for this purpose. All training programs for "basic mass specialties" will be reformatted, modules related to the development of digital technologies will be included there. Not only students, but also teachers will be trained so that they can also teach digital competencies within their traditional specialties, the head of the Ministry of Digital Affairs added.[7]

2017: Rating of Russian universities for the software industry

In July 2017, the Russoft Association presented a rating of Russian universities that train specialists for the software industry. The rating was first compiled in 2014 on the basis of a survey of Russian software developers for 4 years (from 2011 to 2014).

Universities are ranked by the number of references by software companies to specific universities as sources of replenishment of their staff with new personnel. When conducting a survey as part of the annual Russoft study, respondents answered the question about universities whose graduates are in greatest demand among IT enterprises in the region. Since large companies have development centers in various cities, they named universities not only the city in which the head office is located (usually it is Moscow or St. Petersburg), but also universities in other cities.

According to the rating methodology, one company can participate in the ranking with only one voice, regardless of its staff. Giving more votes to large companies does not make sense, because in this case only Moscow universities, where the largest companies in Russia are concentrated, will be at the top of the rating. Then the universities of St. Petersburg and so on will follow, depending on how large the city is represented in the survey and how many companies participated from it. The rating thus obtained would be even less representative of reality. The use of one voice from one company is also not ideal, but still allows us to consider the existing ranking quite objective, albeit with some reservations.

Even greater confidence in objectivity appears if you compare the universities of one city, if it is presented in the survey by at least 10 companies. Such cities include Moscow, Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Tomsk and Chelyabinsk.

Since the study annually covered more than 130 companies (in 2017 - 152), and each year the composition of participants changed by 70-80%, the final rating for 4 years reflects the opinion of more than 300 employers representing the software industry in Russia.

In total, 119 universities in Russia have been mentioned as the best in the last 7 years, but most of them have no more than one vote. If the university has two votes in several years, it is also difficult to draw any conclusions about the quality of training students of a particular university, but we still decided to take into account universities that received at least 2 ratings from employers in the new version of the rating. This is done so that universities that are not leading are in sight and have an incentive to move up. As a result, the full rating of 2017 consists of 51 universities, and not 19, as in its previous version.

Leaders and Meaningful Permutations

At the very top of the rating, a castling occurred: from second place to first, the Bauman Moscow State Technical University rose, shifting below the St. Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics (ITMO). However, the difference between them is insignificant and lies within the error range.

There is a significant gap only between universities, which occupy 5th and 6th places, respectively. Therefore, we can confidently talk about the five leading universities that are at about the same level (in the previous version of the rating, the first 7 universities could be distinguished in this way).

In the top five, we can note the transition from 5th to 3rd place at St. Petersburg State Polytechnic University, which is hardly accidental. This university demonstrates its development in various areas, which should affect the quality of training for high-tech industries.

From 6th to 11th place, universities are located in pairs, judging by the proximity of the indicator of the frequency of mention by employers. Compared to the previous version of the rating, they all retained their positions.

It is worth noting the appearance in the second twenty of three universities in Tomsk (they have a slight difference in the number of mentions, and therefore they can be classified as one category), Penza and Chelyabinsk state universities, as well as South Ural State University (Chelyabinsk). This rise is associated with a more active participation in the 2017 survey of companies in Tomsk, Chelyabinsk and Penza. If they were also active in the previous three years, their positions could be even higher. We can say that the universities of these cities have now taken approximately the places that they deserve, because at least 100 software companies operate in Tomsk and Chelyabinsk (in Penza there are a little less - 30-40).

It is known that in Tatarstan there are also many development companies. software However, we have not yet been able to fully cover the companies of this republic with our annual survey, although there have been attempts to connect local development institutions to the study. Due to the low representation of companies of the republic Kazan , Kazan (Volga) Federal University occupies the highest positions in the ranking (28-33 place) of universities. Most likely, the positions of universities in the capital of Tatarstan should be higher.

It should be noted that not many software companies are concentrated in some regions, which does not allow local universities to score a sufficient number of rating points. Nevertheless, the quality of education in them is at a fairly high level.

Also, some universities can train high-class specialists, but are significantly inferior to competitors in the number of graduates going to work in software companies in the region, since their graduates go to other sectors of the Russian economy. It is known that of all working programmers, software companies account for 25-30%, and the rest work in other IT companies or in IT departments of various enterprises, organizations and government structures. Thus, the demand of software companies for graduates of a particular university does not always 100% reflect the quality of their training, although the presence in a city of a lot of competent specialists with a good university education provides that there should be successful software companies in this city.

2014: Russoft Data

As part of its annual study, the Association of Software Manufacturers of NP RUSSOFT compiled a rating of Russian universities in November 2014, determining the level of success of their training of IT specialists.

The ranking was carried out by the number of references by software companies to specific universities as sources of replenishment of staff with new personnel over the past 4 years.

During the survey, respondents were asked to list the universities whose graduates are in greatest demand among IT enterprises in the region in which the companies surveyed are located.

Since the study covered at least 130 companies annually, and each year the composition of participants changed by 70-80%, the final rating reflects the opinion of more than 300 employers representing the software industry. Russia

In total, more than 100 universities in Russia are mentioned as the best in 4 years, but most of them have no more than one vote.

Since software developers are concentrated in Moscow and St. Petersburg, 4 universities from these two largest Russian cities got into TOP-10. Two more universities in the top ten represent Novosibirsk.

The best university, according to the RUSSOFT Association, was the St. Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics (NIU ITMO). However its separation from taking the second and third place of the Moscow state technical university of Bauman (MSTU) and St. Petersburg State University (St.Petersburg State University) not really big.

TOP-10 Russian universities according to the results of a survey of software companies over the past 4 years, the number of mentions.

  1. St. Petersburg National Research University of Information Technology, Mechanics and Optics 82
  2. Bauman Moscow State Technical University 77
  3. St. Petersburg State University 74
  4. Moscow State University 65
  5. St. Petersburg State Polytechnic University 56
  6. Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology 54
  7. St. Petersburg State Electrotechnical University 47
  8. Novosibirsk State University (NSU) 27
  9. Moscow Engineering and Physics Institute 27
  10. Novosibirsk State Technical University 19



The first place of NIU ITMO is natural, since in some other ratings it is in the same position not only in Russia, but also in the world.

This university retains global leadership for the past 15 years as a result of the performance of its teams in the student programming world championship. This is the only university that is a five-time absolute champion of the most prestigious programmer competitions.

In addition, one of the survey participants, the Perm company FORECAST, ranked universities by the ratio of the average salary in the IT industry in the region and the cost of studying at the university. According to this indicator, ITMO was also in first place.

Finally, the St. Petersburg University of ITMO is among the leaders in Russia in another indicator - the proportion of graduates who got a job in the specialty received at the university (76%). In the vast majority of universities that train specialists in the field of software development, this share is much less - in the region of 50%.

Not many software companies are concentrated in some regions, which does not allow local universities to score a sufficient number of rating points. Nevertheless, the quality of education in them can be at a sufficiently high level.

Also, some universities can train high-class specialists, but are significantly inferior to competitors in the number of graduates going to work in IT companies.

Thus, the demand of graduates of a particular university does not always 100% reflect the quality of their training.

The RUSSOFT study showed that in 2013, the importance of the work of universities for surveyed companies increased even more.

Firstly, the share of companies cooperating with universities in various joint programs increased to 54%. Earlier, over the previous 4 years, this indicator decreased from 58% to 47% (the decline began after the global financial crisis).

Secondly, the share of university graduates in the total number of employees increased in 2013 from 4.6% to 8.4%. A study of the Superjob.ru recruiting portal revealed similar trends for the entire Russian economy: employers are more willing to hire young people who have just graduated from university every year.

2013: Plans for the creation of Centers for Breakthrough IT Research in Russia

Initiative of the authorities

In May 2013, during the expanded board of the Ministry of Communications, the head of the department, Nikolai Nikiforov, announced that it was planned to create up to 50 centers for breakthrough research in the field of information technology on the basis of existing Russian universities and research institutes .

The amount of necessary funding for the centers was estimated at 4 billion rubles. for five years, and it was proposed to implement it by allocating a separate block in the direction of IT in the federal target program "Personnel," designed for 2014-2020.

According to the proposal of the Ministry of Communications, the topic of research of such centers should be determined with the participation of the IT industry, and funds should be distributed according to the results of the relevant competitions, which are planned to be held in 2013.

Proposals for the development of centers for breakthrough research in the field of IT were sent for approval to the government. The Ministry of Communications worked on them together with the Ministry of Education and Science and the Ministry of Finance in accordance with the order of Dmitry Medvedev of December 24, 2012.

Requirements for programs of universities and research institutes applying for financing

At the end of July 2013, the Ministry of Communications announced the start of accepting applications from universities and research institutes to participate in a pilot project to create and develop centers for breakthrough research in the field of IT in 2014-2018. The collection of applications will last until September 20, 2013.

Applications should be sent to the Ministry of Education and Science, with which the project is being implemented, and a strategic program for the development of the IT center should be attached to them. Requirements to the structure and content of strategic programs of the Ministry of Communications published on July 30, 2013.

As follows from the document published by the department, the applicants' programs should contain a description of their goals and tasks, stages of implementing activities for the duration of the program, as well as annual target indicators that are planned to be achieved during the implementation of the strategic program and similar indicators of institutions for 2013.

Indicators of the commercial efficiency of the program, in particular, include the amount of funds received from the implementation of innovative products in the areas of the center's activities, the number of created commercial IT companies whose main activity is the commercialization of the center's development and research, the number of new jobs created by the center and its collaborating IT companies.

In the field of scientific activity, the department recommends indicating such targets for the effectiveness of the center as the number of R&D activities carried out by its team on specialized topics, the number of publications in scientific journals indexed in the Web of Science or Scopus database, and others.

In the program of applicants for development, as a center for breakthrough research, there is also a justification for the volume and direction of using financial resources from budget and extrabudgetary sources for each year of the program implementation and the prospects for creating specific scientific and technical results in the field of IT that either meet or exceed the international level, and can also become the main one for the formation of specialized communities on their basis.

In addition, the strategic programmes of the centres should contain a description of the mechanism for managing its implementation: in particular, they should contain a description of the functions and responsibilities of each programme management body.

Universities where IT breakthrough research centers will be created

On November 27, 2013 , the Ministry of Communications announced the results of a joint selection of organizations with the Ministry of Education and Science, on the basis of which it is planned to create centers for breakthrough research in the field of information technologies.

According to representatives of the department, in total, the competition received more than 130 applications from universities and research institutes, of which 19 winners were selected. Each of the winning organizations has well-known IT companies among its partners, the ministry notes.

Priority support for the creation of breakthrough IT research centers in a number of programs, in particular, will be able to:

The scientific programs of the winners cover a wide range of research areas, including bioinformatics, big data analysis, robotics, quantum and optical technologies, human-machine interfaces.

The Ministry of Communications notes that the applications passed a strict selection according to such criteria as the prospects of the center's research areas, the presence of qualified scientific groups and scientists with a world name, for applied development - readiness for further commercialization.

In December 2013, a description of the mechanisms for supporting winners in the framework of events of the Ministry of Education and Science programs should be developed, and in the second quarter of 2014 - a separate event of the Ministry of Communications to support centers for breakthrough IT research.

2011: Salary rating of IT universities: where to study to earn more?

The research center of the portal Superjob.ru compiled a rating of technical universities by the level of salaries of their graduates. The leaders are Moscow State University, MEPhI, MIPT and NSU.

Graduates of IT faculties of Moscow State University, MEPhI, MIPT and NSU can apply for the highest income. Such conclusions were made by the Superjob.ru Recruiting Portal Research Center, having studied the summary of several thousand graduates of the most famous Russian universities.

The highest salary among IT specialists who graduated from the specialized faculties of universities in 2000-2005 and found work in the field of information technology is noted among graduates of Moscow State University, MEPhI, MIPT and Novosibirsk State University. Their average market earnings in the Moscow labor market is 85 thousand rubles. Only a little lower than the salary of their classmates who were not employed in their specialty: graduates of Moscow State University, MIPT and NSU can count on income of about 80 thousand rubles, and graduates of MEPhI - 75 thousand rubles.

The average earnings of aitishniks who graduated from Bauman Moscow State Technical University and work in their specialty are 80 thousand rubles. About 10 thousand rubles less are received by graduates of the same university, engaged in areas that are not related to the received IT education.

IT graduates of MIPT, MEPhI, Moscow State University and Baumanka receive the most in Moscow 

75 thousand rubles is the average monthly salary of IT specialists trained by the Moscow State Institute of Electronics and Mathematics, Novosibirsk State Technical University, Nizhny Novgorod State University named after N.I.
