Faculty of Computer Science Organized Event for Radboud University Students

From April 20 – 30, 2017, students from Radboud University Nijmegen took part in a cultural and educational programme organized by the Faculty of Computer Science as part of the ‘Information and Computer Technology in Different Cultures’ course.

MA students in Software Engineering, Data Science and Information Security at the Institute for Computing Science & Information Sciences took part in the programme. The main goal of the visit was to learn more about the study process for computer science and IT, students’ project work, the Faculty of Computer Science’s collaboration with partners, and how IT companies in Russia operate.

On April 21, the visitors met students from the Faculty of Computer Science. Ekaterina Beresneva and Maria Gordenko, Software Engineering students, presented their current projects. The visitors from the Netherlands gave their presentation, and then the students had time to talk in an informal environment.

On April 25, the Dutch delegation met Ivan Prostakov, HSE Vice Rector, and Yulia Grinkevich, Director of theOffice of Internationalisation. The visiting students listened to presentations about Russian history, culture and the local environment, about HSE’s international educational programmes and projects, as well as about the terms of studies offered by HSE for international students. Erik Barendsen, head of the delegation, thanked Mr. Prostakov for the meeting, and delivered souvenirs and a letter of appreciation from the Mayor of Nijmegen.

Meetings with the Faculty’s partners formed a big part of the itinerary. The participants visited the RAS Institute for System Programming, Kaspersky Lab, FORS Group, Luxoft Group, Deutsche Bank, and Yandex. Each of the companies prepared a special programme for the guests.

An excursion around Moscow’s historical centre was organized for the visiting students. They visited the Kremlin and the Armoury, walked along the Stary Arbat, and saw other landmarks in the Russian capital.

This was the second visit from Radboud University Nijmegen to HSE. The first such programme took place in 2013, at the Faculty of Business Informatics. HSE staff hopes this cooperation will continue, and that exchange visits with the Dutch university will become a regular occurrence.
