Study Computer Engineering in Russia with Council for Foreign Education in Russia, official International Education partner of leading Russian State Universities under the Learning in Russia™ program for international students!

Attention students / parents:

Studying through CFER gives you a 25% saving in tuition fees.

study Bachelors in Informatics and Computer Engineering in Russia in English medium

Studying in English language will help you think, analyze, ascertain and reach at a conclusion the topics and issues that interest you in a language comfortable to you and native to many of our international students. It will also give you the added benefit of understanding the Russia perspective, “Russian way of doing things”, without learning the Russian language.

In a world of technology consumers, what we really need are more technology leaders.

Nearly everyone these days is comfortable performing basic daily tasks with technology—sending a text, downloading a song, researching and writing e-mails. Far fewer people understand the complex logical arguments, programming, applications, and systems that make those tasks possible.

That’s the value of a computer science education.

Behind every awesome Web site, must-have mobile app, space launch or mission-critical data management system is a computer scientist—or a team of computer scientists—that made it happen. Computer scientists, software engineers, programmers, and other computing professionals are experts on how technology works and how computing can address even the most complicated and intricate problems.

Intended Outcomes of Bachelors in Computer Engineering Program:

The student who graduates with a major in computer science should be able to

  • Apply logic and mathematical principles to the design, development, and verification of secure, high-performance, and reliable computing systems.
  • Analyze, design, develop, and document secure technical solutions for computing systems and networking infrastructure.
  • Plan, design, and optimize computing architecture, software applications, data, and systems that securely support enterprise needs.

Quantum cryptography

Quantum cryptography uses as an information carrier single photons, so if they get captured they will not reach the addressee, which immediately become a signal of espionage.

To hide the interception, the spy is to measure the quantum state of a photon (polarization or phase) and send it to the addressee “duplicate”. But according to the laws of quantum mechanics, it is impossible, since any changes the state of the measurement, the photon, that is, does not give the opportunity to create his “clone.”

This fact ensures complete privacy data, so these systems are beginning to be used in the world of the secret services and banking networks.

Research & Development Production Enterprise Zvezda

Russian manufacturer of life-support systems for high-altitude flight and human spaceflight. Its products include space suits, ejector seats, aircraft escape slides, lifejackets and fire extinguishers.

The organization was founded in 1952 to develop aviation pressure suits and in-flight refuelling systems for the USSR’s space research programme. In the 1960s it began to design space suits, including the one worn by Yuri Gagarin. In 1965, Alexey Leonov, who performed the first in the history space walk, wore Zvezda’s spacesuit and used their airlock chamber, and hundreds of pilots owe their lives to their ejection seats. .The Orlan-M space suit was used by cosmonauts in the Mir space station. Zvezda became a joint-stock company in 1994.

Zvezda is also Russia’s primary manufacturer of ejector seats for Russian fighter aircraft. For improved pilot survivability, the Russian Kamov Ka-50 “Black Shark” helicopter is fitted with a NPP Zvezda K-37-800 ejection seat, which is a rare feature for a helicopter

The main tasks of the “Zvezda” team are:

  • to provide high performance capability of pilots and cosmonauts in their professional activities, including extreme flight conditions;
  • to increase aircraft operation efficiency owing to reduction of human factor related limitations;
  • to save pilots in accidents and return them to their professional activity.
