UNN listed among Russia’s top 10 universities in the field of "Computer Science"
The analytical center "Expert" has published its third subject ranking of scientific productivity of higher educational institutions. Lobachevsky University has confirmed its high standing already demonstrated in 2017 and entered the list of top 10 universities in Russia in the field of "Computer Science", taking the 8th position and significantly improving its standing in terms of score points.
According to UNN Rector Evgeny Chuprunov, the University has developed a strong research potential in the field of programming and high-performance computing.
"55 years ago, the country’s first Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics was opened at Lobachevsky University. The aim was to train experts for the new unique branches of Soviet industry. Some outstanding scientists of that time created their authoritative scientific schools that continue to operate within the UNN to this day. In 2014, the supercomputer Lobachevsky was launched, which is one of the world's 30 most powerful university supercomputers. Every year, our students show brilliant results at international contests and programming championships, winning silver and bronze medals. The high quality of training of our graduates in programming provides them with excellent career prospects in the best world IT companies," said Evgeny Chuprunov.
