The partnership of the semiconductor company and one of the leading educational and research centers in the field of applied mathematics, computer technologies and informatics is aimed at creating strong links between higher education and modern high-tech business. This agreement covers the issue of scientific and technical cooperation between two parties. It provides for the use of modern computer systems built on the Baikal-line of microprocessors in the educational process of the university, carrying out analyses of the technical characteristics of such systems and searching for opportunities for their improvement.
Within the framework of cooperation it is planned to launch publicly available remote access to developer boards farm on the basis of CMC MSU’s data center. It is also planned to organize internships and master classes for the faculty’s bachelors, masters and post-graduate students.
"Interaction with Russian universities is not at all an idle question for us. We at Baikal Electronics have now focused on creating a full ecosystem around the company's products, and cooperation with the country's leading university is an important step in this direction. Computing systems are undergoing serious changes: energy-efficient processor architectures are released into previously unavailable market niches, there are increased requirements for security and data protection, and the Internet of Things develops by leaps and bounds. Therefore, we are "pushing" young and talented scientists to develop research in this area. For Baikal, the partnership with CMC MSU is an important stage in the development of R & D activities, "said Mikhail Mahson." Today's agreement, to which we have been traveling for several years, marks the beginning of joint research and technical projects on the basis of the faculty. We are glad that we can contribute to the professional growth of a new generation of students and post-graduate students."
" Education is developing in close interaction with high-tech businesses. And scientific developments in universities will give businesses additional impetus in the era of digital transformation of the economy. In addition, such interaction makes an important contribution to ensuring the technological independence and security of the state, "said Professor Evgeny Moiseev." On the one hand, the faculty is engaged in fundamental science, but on the other - is looking for and developing new solutions and technologies that can be applied in practice - in the rapidly developing areas of artificial intelligence, machine learning, and neural networks. I hope that cooperation with Baikal Electronics will be fruitful and will supplement the achievements of the faculty in the field of computer systems."
About CMC MSU
The Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics of Lomonosov Moscow State University was founded in 1970 on the initiative and due to the efforts of one of the greatest Russian scientists of the 20th century — Andrey Nicolaevich Tikhonov. Today the faculty is a leading training centre of Russia in the field of fundamental research on Applied Mathematics, Computing Technologies and Informatics.
Each year CMC MSU enrolls about 350 undergraduate students. Currently, a total number of full-time students at the faculty is 2000 (including 300 students from abroad), and about 200 postgraduates.
