An avalanche development of information technologies is dynamically changing requirements for software engineering professionals.
What is the future of IT? What technologies will dominate in the near and long term? What should a software engineer know today and not lose the relevance of their knowledge in the future? Which application areas should you master? How to stay competitive in the IT market?
The answers to these questions should be sought in close collaboration between the educational field and practicing engineers.
The development of society is not the first time that it meets technological breakthroughs. It is known from experience that in such a competitive struggle one who has a strong fundamental training base, which focuses on modern and promising applied technologies, wins. How to implement it? Bring theory closer to practice. Combine the efforts of high school and IT businesses. This can be implemented, for example, through mechanisms for updating the content of training, the creation of training and laboratory clusters that mimic the work areas of real enterprises, involvement of “practitioners” in the educational process, and educators to specific projects.
These are the approaches to training software engineers currently being implemented at the National Aviation University.
On June 6, 2019, the Embedded Starter Kit specialized equipment was presented at GlobalLogic’s headquarters, demonstrating the ability to use it to prepare students. The presentation was attended by specialists of the Department of Software Engineering, Faculty of Cybersecurity, Computer and Software Engineering of NAU, who teach the subject disciplines: “Computer Architecture”, “Embedded systems of real time”, “Systems for small and mobile platforms”. The information obtained will help to update the content of student learning.
It is significant that GlobalLogic staff has many graduates of the National Aviation University who share their experience with the staff of the department and students.
