“Sirius” will start an experimental IT specialist for 9th grade graduates

A new educational program for 9th grade graduates will be launched on the basis of the Sirius University of Science and Technology, the purpose of which will be the accelerated training of young research engineers and leaders of technological projects, reports TARS. The work is carried out together with “leading technology companies”. Winners and prize-winners of the final stage of the All-Russian Olympiad for schoolchildren in mathematics, informatics or physics will be able to enter the specialist without entrance exams.

As part of the program, graduates should receive a full set of competencies in the field of IT for a “significant” reduction in study time. At the same time, students will be able to obtain secondary and higher education. In the first and second years at Sirius, they will learn the general school program, after the second year they will receive a certificate of complete secondary education. The third and fourth courses will be devoted to professional training.

“The decision to adopt an experimental legal regime was approved at a meeting of the Council of the Federal Territory. Thanks to this, Sirius will launch a new educational program in the field of modern technologies and information security for 9th grade graduates called “Design, development and management of complex information systems”. It has already passed the necessary approvals from the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation and the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation,” — a quote from TARS.
