– How do you see cooperation between universities, industry and government in the terms of human resources?
– Together with educational institutions across the country, QRate works closely on developing competencies in quantum communications. I strongly feel that engaging public authorities in this process will make our educational initiatives more efficient and will widen the reach of our programs for all prospective partners. I hope more industrial companies, universities and startups join MTS so we can expand and share our experience internationally.
– Can Moscow Technical School facilitate integration of regional standards of staffing to boost industrial growth?
– Regions frequently adopt technological innovations, including those in the education field. We will be proud if some of our initiatives are embedded in regional standards.
– What tips would you give to a young professional accepting his/her first paid job offer?
– Do not get anxious from the workload, show your interest and awareness in current technological trends in a chosen field, and decide on your career path as early as you can. Early career guidance city programs are already assisting kids from their school years.
– Do you agree with the saying that human resources are a key asset, or is it true that no one is irreplaceable?
– It is a tricky question. I cannot give you a clear answer. Hi-tech companies are hunting for such one-of-a-kind employees. When the technology passes the tipping point and is being traded actively, it is time to scale up unique skills for a wider professional community and for other mass market players. We believe Moscow Technical School can play a crucial role in this process.
