Development of information technologies in Russia has passed its own and unique way. In 1951, the first computing machine in Europe, MESM, was built here.
Scientists in Soviet computing facilities were trying to build computers based on non-binary logic. Russia gave the world dozens of scientists ahead of their time, including Mikhail Lavrientiev, Sergey Lebedev, Andrey Ershov and others.
Getting a Master’s degree in Russian universities means obtaining fundamental theoretical knowledge, exchanging experience and getting a chance to meet leading scientists, engineers, programmers and to establish valuable scientific contacts.
