340 educational institutions have adapted educational programs to the requirements of the digital economy.

“The programs were updated on the basis of the Support Education Center of the Innopolis University with the participation of leading companies in the IT industry. The training of students began on September 1, 2021. The updates cover over 1,600 disciplines and areas of study: big data, artificial intelligence, the Internet of things, virtual and augmented reality technologies, and wireless technology. The Ministry of Digital Industry will continue to coordinate this work with educational institutions within the framework of the federal project “PERSONNEL FOR THE DIGITAL ECONOMY” of the national program “Digital Economy” and beyond, ”Dmitry Chernyshenko said.

“This year, students began training on updated programs that were developed by teachers and heads of educational institutions, based on the needs of leading companies in the digital economy.
