Rector of VNTU, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor, Volodymyr Hrabko took part in the 3rd International Conference “SYNERGY: IT-Education and IT-Industry” and was one of the speakers of this IT-Forum
This event was attended by members of Parliament, heads of leading universities, representatives of the largest IT-companies in Ukraine and Eastern Europe, national and international experts on the development of IT-education in the Great Conference Hall of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
Speaking at the Forum Rector of VNTU Volodymyr Hrabko noted, “There is a demand for IT-professions. At the same time there is a problem of the level of training school graduates and teaching staff of older age at universities does not fully master modern technologies. In addition, technical universities lack young teachers because of low salaries. Recently talented graduates immediately began to work in business, do not want to engage in postgraduate study”.
“Higher education institutions also lack modern equipment and software, learning tools and licensed software. IT-industry should take a high level in the country. To solve such problems we need to create the appropriate structures that will engage capable children from early childhood, to introduce a system of bonuses and scholarships”, noted Professor Hrabko.
“Concerning the all-country approach, we have to develop production in all sectors but IT-technologies should penetrate in any sphere of our activity,” concluded Rector of Vinnytsia National Technical University Volodymyr Hrabko.
