Research output

1 Citation (Scopus)


The article provides an analysis of the status of Russian higher education in Software Engineering and related specialties. Many universities in Russia are training bachelors and masters in Software Engineering. Nevertheless, there is no scientific specialty in Russia exactly called Software Engineering, which should be used to train postgraduate and doctoral students. Consequently, there is no opportunity to defend candidate and doctoral theses in Software Engineering in Russia. A proposal is formulated to include Software Engineering in the Nomenclature of Specialties of Scientists of the Russian Federation.
