Synergy 2018: Universities & IT-business

The Association's Event

Event Description

During the conference "Synergy: Universities & IT-Business" there will take place the first in Ukraine presentation of the industrial standard for IT-specialists. Together with leading IT-companies of the country, representatives of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine and higher education institutions, we will discuss the feasibility of such standards and the urgency of their implementation.

Creating and implementing a single education standard for IT-professionals is an important step for the industry. A professional standard will help educational institutions adapt their current educational programs to market requirements, and thus produce graduate professionals who will immediately be able to start work in the field of the relevant specialty.
