We start cooperation with Odesa National University
Sigma Software marks the cooperation start with Odesa I.I. Mechnikov National University. As university partner Sigma Software is going to take part in major activities dedicated to improvement of IT students’ education quality. This is the third educational institution in Odesa to partner with the company. The joint work has already been established with Odesa National Polytechnic University and STEP computer academy.
Information Technology is a very dynamic industry, every day the new technologies are coming. Therefore, knowing the latest trends is crucial for young specialists to stay highly sought on the job market. By contrast, the educational programs in universities are not always updated fast enough to correspond to companies` requirements.
Thus, the cooperation agreement between Odesa National University and Sigma Software foresees actions that can provide students with essential knowledge, valuable enough to be hired in any IT company. This includes educational program updates, regular presentations on trending technologies by the company representatives, drafting curriculum, courses and practice sessions for students of the University with Sigma Software employees as mentors and supervisors.
Eugene Yakovlev, Head of Educational Programs at Sigma Software Odesa office, shares his thoughts:
“Our company is well-known among Odesa students and last year even became a dream company to work in. This was possible due to our continuous work on education improvement in Odesa. We have been cooperating for years with ONPU and STEP academy, supported numerous user groups for students, and provided about 30 students a year with a possibility to have a practice in the company. This year we also supported two big students contests — Golden Byte, organized by STEP academy, and IT-Eureka, held within the Tempus program. We are very happy to start partnership with Odesa National University.”
“Every day more and more universities realize that without cooperation with business it is impossible to prepare professionals who will be in demand on the labor market,” adds Valery Krasovsky, CEO at Sigma Software. “It is very inspiring that business now can influence education quality, which is beneficial both for students and companies. The former can be more confident in their future and the latter can hire well-trained specialists.”
