HSE MIEM Starts Joint Project with China
Professor Lev Shchur, Academic Supervisor of the master's programme in Supercomputer Simulations in Science and Engineering, and Professor Hai-Qing Lin, Director of Beijing Computational Science Research Center (CSRC) have signed a cooperation agreement for implementing a joint research project in computational physics and high performance computing.
Participation in this project will allow HSE students, doctoral students, young researchers and professors to visit the CSRC centre, one of the largest research centres in computational physics and computational algorithms, for a week or a month. In addition, long-term joint research work in the CSRC centre for a period of one to three years is also possible. Research work of doctoral students and research fellows will be supervised by Professor Lev Shchur regardless of their internship duration. Research funding will be provided by CSRC.
СSRC centre started working in spring 2015. It is located in the North-West of Beijing in the Z-Park area. Z-Park is, in fact, the software ‘silicon valley’ of China. For example, the headquarters of the Baidu company (the Chinese equivalent of Google) is situated there.
The centre conducts research in computational sciences, with a focus on computational physics and the development of efficient algorithms. Researchers operate a smaller version of the Tianhe 2 supercomputer (the 4th most powerful computer in the world) on a 1/6 scale of the original, called Tianhe2-JK. Project participants will have access to this cluster for research.
Renowned researchers from different countries, as well as experts in computational physics and high performance computing cooperate with the centre.
HSE students, doctoral students and lecturers are invited to participate in the project. If you have any questions, please contact Lev Shchur, the project manager via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or in person at his office every Wednesday.
HSE has been included in two Times Higher Education (THE) subject rankings. It is ranked in the Top 500 for Computer Science and in 801-1000 group for Engineering.
Ernest Sadykov, a graduate of the HSE Faculty of Computer Science (FCS), works as a software engineer at Facebook. In this interview, he tells Success Builder how an extrovert can be a 'techie', why companies have trouble finding IT specialists and what Facebook’s philosophy is.
HSE Faculty of Computer Science offers eight Master’s programmes, including four programmes taught entirely in English. Samia Nasrin, from Data Science Master’s programme, and Usama Albaghdady, from Master’s in System and Software Engineering, talk about choosing HSE University, admissions process, their studies and future plans.
Professor Oleg Melnikov is among the international professors invited to work remotely with HSE University’s students this academic year. He lives in California, runs the Data Science department at a company in Palo Alto, and teaches at Stanford and other universities in the United States. At HSE University he teaches a course on machine learning for the students of the Faculty of Computer Science and the International College of Economics and Finance (ICEF), as well as a university-wide optional course, ‘Machine Learning in Python’. He spoke about his work in an interview with the HSE News Service.
Upon successfully defending his dissertation before HSE Dissertation Council in Computer Science, Pavel Dvurechensky became the first Doctor of Computer Science in Russia. This was possible thanks to the fact that, starting in 2018, HSE University received the right to award its own academic degrees.
The Joint Department with 1C will train highly qualified engineers and developers with mathematical expertise, strong research profiles, and a fluency in modern software tools. Department graduates will be able to effectively solve both system-related and applied problems in business automation.
Four people have received this award for their achievements in the field of Computer Science: two HSE University graduate students, one doctoral student, and Sergei Obiedkov, Deputy Dean for Research and International Relations at the Faculty of Computer Science.
In 2019, Anna Kuzina graduated from HSE University and Skoltech Statistical Learning Theory joint master programme. Now Anna works as a research engineer in Skoltech and will commence her PhD studies in Amsterdam in September. Here she talks about her life as a student and her research. She also gives advice to students who want to build a successful career in industry and research.
This summer, university students from all over Russia took part in the Digital Transformation of the Charity Sector Summer School in Moscow. Students from HSE University and other universities presented digital solutions to make non-profit organizations more efficient and even save lives.
They represented various universities, such as École normale supérieure, University of Oxford, University of Padua, University of Toulouse, École Centrale de Marseille, INSA de Lyon, Instituto Superior Técnico in Lisbon.
