Artificial intelligence and computer linguistics

Artificial intelligence is the science and technology of intelligent machines and computer programs creation. In general, studies of Artificial Intelligence in computer science are directed on the establishment, development and operation of intelligent information systems.

These developments are the basis of many modern industrial hardware and software systems. The general trend of the computerization of society makes continuous growth in demand for specialists in the field of computer linguistics, robotics, the design of automated expert systems and knowledge bases.

Students learn:

  • optimization techniques;
  • artificial neural networks;
  • methods of pattern recognition;
  • high-performance computing and cloud services;
  • computer systems;
  • modern problems of computer science;
  • IT project management.

During training students learn the research and development methodologies, do educational and industrial practice work. At the final stage candidates for the academic master’s degree perform scientific research and defend a project.

Specialization disciplines include:

  • development of expert systems and knowledge bases;
  • mathematical linguistics;
  • robotics;
  • intelligent sensors and sensor systems;
  • information-analytical and search systems;
  • design and development of software.

Upon completion of the program, graduates will:

  • know the programs of data mining, machine learning and computational linguistics in technological processes of information processing;
  • learn software and linguistic support for intelligent information systems and decision support systems;
  • develop artificial intelligence systems (intelligent systems, data mining, task solvers for robots, computational linguistics and knowledge representation), taking into consideration the specific character of humanitarian field, for which the programs or systems are developed;
  • acquire the skills of intelligent systems development for different fields (sociology, medicine, forensics, business Informatics).

Job placement

ICT graduates can perform research, design, production and technological, operational, organizational, managerial, teaching activities.

Upon completion of training graduates:

  • successfully work in senior positions in IT departments;
  • get employed as engineers, scientists, heads of laboratories and research centers;
  • work as developers, analysts, Intelligent Systems developers and programmers, programmer-analysts, expert systems developers, artificial intelligence specialists;
  • continue their education in postgraduate school, choosing a career of a professional research scientist, developer of new technologies in computer science and modern technologies.

Program duration:
from 2 to 2.5 years.

Admission requirements:
Bachelor or Specialist degree in a similar field.

Upon graduation and defending the graduation project students get master’s degree of the Russian Federation state standard, as well as pan-European Diploma Supplement (Diploma Supplement).
