X.               Project Management

Management of international projects is very important part of my work and life. I suppose my future work will include project management and I will use such useful experience.

 

EU Tempus Tacis Compact Project UM_CP-20560-1999

Title: Development of New Framework for the M.Sc. Thesis Work

Objective: to develop new framework for management of students’ M.Sc. thesis work and the procedure of assigning the M.Sc. degree to students in order to: guarantee the academic independence for students; evaluate theoretical and applied thesis; provide credit-based evaluation for internal courses, taken at the partner university; provide credit-based evaluation for practical placements of students; allow credit transfer from other universities; assign the M.Sc. degree under the credit-based framework.

 

 

Joint Master Student Exchange Program on Mobile Computing

Brief description: The program was started in late 1999 on the basis of the agreement between the Department of Artificial Intelligence (KNURE), and the Faculty of Information Technologies (University of Jyväskylä). To facilitate course recognition and credit transfer the Ukrainian type of diploma supplement was developed towards ECTS credit transfer system. The group of 22 Ukrainian students has started and already succeeded with their studies in University of Jyväskylä according to Mobile Computing line. In 2001 new group of 15 students from KNURE has arrived to Jyväskylä for studies.

 

 

Joint Master Student Exchange Program on Artificial Intelligence

Brief description: The program was started in late 1999 on the basis of the agreement between the Department of Artificial Intelligence (KNURE), and Department of Artificial Intelligence (Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam). According to the Program first trial group of 4 students has already started their studies in Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam according to Artificial Intelligence line. It is planned to expand co-operation based on results of the try-on period.

 

XI.            Programming and IT Skills

My programming skills are based on my main education in Software Engineering and include:

§         Programming on C++, Java, Pascal, Assembler

§         DataBase programming

§         Knowledge Mark-Up techniques: XML, XSLT, DTD, XML Schema, DOM, XPath,  RDF, RDF Schema, OWL

§         implementation of AI techniques and some other.

 

XII.        Language Skills

My native language is Russian, I also know excellently Ukrainian and speak English fluently (studied from the age of 5). I’ve begun to study French and German.
