The global digital service provider ЕРАМ in collaboration with the leading academical institutions of Ukraine is inviting IT professionals to participate in the Master’s Degree Program in Software engineering. The Program has been developed by practicing software engineers and for the last two years has been delivered in a blended educational format. The first students are graduating in June 2021 and the registration to the next run opens in March.
At Master’s Degree Program in Software engineering students expand their knowledge and master new skills in the key IT areas – Engineering Excellence 360, Product Management, Solution Architecture, Delivery Management, and elective modules – Cloud & DevOps or Big Data.
The program is aimed at experienced IT professionals. Additionally, they have an opportunity to choose extra training at one of the partner universities and get an internationally recognized master’s degree diploma. The National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy has become the first partner of the Program. Recently the National Technical University “Kharkiv Polytechnic Institute” and the State University of Telecommunications have joined as partners.
The team of mentors and trainers keeps growing and now includes EPAM top-level professionals and executives, including Yuri Antoniuk (VP, Head of Central and Eastern Europe), Dmitry Razorionov (Senior Director, Delivery Management Office), Pavel Veller (CTO, Digital Engagement Practice), Eli Feldman (VP, Technology Solutions) and experts from EPAM Continuum Consulting and NAYA Technologies Data and Cloud Services Management. IT specialists from Ukraine, Belarus, and the USA were among the students of the first two runs of the Master’s Degree Program in Software engineering.
Oksana Sitnikova, Head of Master’s Degree Program in Software engineering, Ph.D. in Engineering Science: «We strongly believe that any educational program should bring practical value. Thus, our team regards the significant career progress of our trainees as the best indicator of the Program’s success. They join our program as Team Leads, Tech Leads, Senior Software Engineers, Senior DevOps Engineers, but very soon, having acquired just a part of the program, they get the desired promotion or a job offer they dreamed about”.
Last December Oksana Sitnikova with the Master’s Degree Program in Software engineering project became the winner of the prestigious professional competition IT Awards in the ІТ-Education nomination.
The registration for the new run of the Master’s Degree Program in Software engineering is open till July 2021. The admission test includes an English language test, a technical test, and an interview with the talent acquisition team. The two years program starts in the autumn.
