The guest got acquainted with the capabilities of IGPT, its facilities and resources and distance education programs that make it possible to create content for online training.

The topics covered  include  educational sphere,  creating a special application software product to automate the process of interaction with  educational services clients, as well as optimization of works in the framework of research projects.

Ildus Chukmarov told Anna Senyukova about continuing education programs implemented with the use of distance technologies, the system of auto-generation of courses and the digital landscape design of the university’s structural unit .He also invited company representatives to take part in the unique Workshop program ”The best global cognitive-synergetic practices effects, strategic and technical solutions in the field of hard-to-recover reserves. ”

“This project continues a series of unique courses specially designed with the participation of leading international experts and taking into account the modern challenges facing enterprises in the oil and gas industry. Today, many facilities for the oil and gas industry are equipped with a  great number of sensors, resulting in a huge data stream that creates confusions. The cognitive computing program will help the companies to cope with the problems that previously seemed to be insoluble. I hope that together with the companies producing new technologies and software we will be able to offer at once several solutions that might be of practical use in industry, ”said Ildus Adgamovich.

Anna Senyukova also proposed to implement a joint educational project to study the company’s software products with the delivery of a Microsoft Certificate and a KFU Certificate on advanced training, as well as to integrate the company’s existing tracks, for example MS Learn technological track, into the programs of the CATQM&M.
