Study Engineering in… Russia!

By Staff writer

Exclusively for Indian students!

A moment of close inspection of the Indian IT sector will reveal that India is severely lacking in computer engineers and Top managers in the IT sector. The problem is that large software services firms are attempting to move away from commoditized services and earn more from high-end product and consulting projects, but there is lack of skilled talent. A former bigwig of Anna University once mentioned that they are producing programmers, not engineers. If to present a clear picture: India specializes in services (TCS, Wipro, Infosys etc.), not products, it offers rate savings, not innovation. Just ask NASSCOM, the industry association for the IT-BPM sector in India. Russia's preeminence can be seen by the surge of product companies in the global economy such as Yandex, Mail.ru, VKontakte, Kaspersky, the RAR file format and WinRAR file archiver, as well as classics of logic games Tetris, etc.

The situation is the same in arms and ammunition building, aeronautics – civil and military – and oil and gas sectors. In these three important strategic fields India is completely dependent on Russia and other foreign countries when it comes to technological expertise and know-how. Any Indian patriot, especially young students, should keep in mind that without excelling in these three important fields India cannot take its place among the superpowers of the world. While not all Indian students can afford to go to the US, they might find it a better option to come to Russia. Russian strength in physics, mathematics and the engineering sciences are well documented for more than a century. The school level math-physics in Russian schools is good enough to pass the SAT (for entry in US universities). The highly regarded Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay was set up with Russian financial and technological assistance and guest professors. You must have noticed that Russians seem to always end at the top competitions which test computer knowledge like Association for Computer Machinery's International Collegiate Programming Contest (ACM-ICPC), Google Code Jam, Facebook Hacker Cup, Topcoder, etc. Council for Foreign Education in Russia (CFER), an organization with an office in St. Petersburg, Russia's Education, Cultural and Scientific capital, aids international students to come to Russia for degree programs in engineering, medicine, management and other fields. CFER evaluates facilities of all Russian Universities it partners with, their ability to take international students and compares educational programs offered to help its prospective students select the best one suiting their interest. CFER also ascertains the career opportunities and the facilities offered in the hostels of these Universities.

In the top Russian Universities you can study Computer science, Computer security, Information Technology, Mechatronics, Biomedical Engineering, Nuclear-, Particle-, Plasma-, Theoretical and Astrophysics, Mathematical Cybernetics, Nanotechnology at a much deeper level than anywhere in Eurasia.

The universities of Russia have collaborations with employers and researchers in different study fields where students can gain real work experience. After earning your degree this gives an edge over others when the real work life begins.

Since Russian universities are open to many International students, you will make a lot of friends from all over the world, will be able to know other cultures and communities and enrich your experience. Thus, you will be better prepared to work and deliver quality services in any part of the world. It will help you to handle the complexities of global issues in a specific cultural and geographical context.

Russia is spread across nine time zones and has a great diversity in geography and culture. Long university summer holidays and programs organized by CFER, such as holiday trips and internships offer students an once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Russia and immerse themselves in another culture. CFER will be glad to offer you an opportunity to get engineering degree in Russia.
