Academic Staff of School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science Took Training in Huawei Company

South Ural State University and Huawei have signed an agreement on launching Huawei Academy ICT program. An authorized centre for training specialists in the field of infocommunication technologies will be opened at the SUSU School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science as part of this program.

To ensure the educational process, the academic staff of the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science took training in Huawei and were awarded the certificates from the ICT Academy. The training covered three fields. One of these was HCIA Routing & Switching, that is a course on computer network management, methods of designing and routing of modern computer networks.

Vladimir Surin, a senior lecturer at the Department of Electronic Computing Machines, shared his impressions:

“Computer networks are constantly developing; every year new fields appear. The Huawei Academy HCIA Routing & Switching training has provided us with basic knowledge for building corporate networks. The course is aimed at training new specialists, but people employed in the network field will not be disappointed either and will learn a lot of new things. Especially since Huawei focuses not on proprietary technologies (unique, characterizing a certain manufacturer - editor's note), but on standardized ones. It is always useful to gain new knowledge or get an update on what you already know, and it's nice when a Huawei technical specialist can answer any question you ask right during the training. And he can not only answer, but also show an example: the laboratory features a large assortment of network equipment, which demonstrates the operation of certain technologies described in theory. During the HCIA Routing & Switching, I have realized that this is not a waste of time, but the strengthening of the foundation of professional knowledge and improving of the competence. The training was carried out in the form of an online conference, practical tasks were performed independently on an emulator. The lectures were in Russian, and the theoretical material and practical tasks both in Russian and English."

SUSU is the first Russian university to launch a course on 5G with the support of the world's leading IT giant

HCIA 5G, that is the development and evolution of the latest generation of mobile networks (5G), was another field covered by the training.

Maksim Vakhitov, Associate Professor of the Department of Design and Production of Radio Apparatus, shared information about the knowledge gained within the ICT Academy 5G course:

“This course introduces to the evolution of the 5G standard and its typical industry applications, basic concepts, key technologies used in 5G, and successful cases of 5G converging with typical industrial sectors, providing insights and recommendations for learning 5G technologies. The training helps to answer a number of questions: What is 5G? Why is 5G required? What can 5G do? What are the prospects for the development of cellular communications in the world? The course has been taught for Russian universities for the first time. This will allow SUSU to become the first university in Russia to launch such a course with the support of the world's leading IT giant."

Elena Ivanova, Associate Professor of the Department of System Programming, spoke about the online course on big data management and processing by the Huawei Academy, HCIA Big Data:

“The course is devoted to the storage and processing of big data, and considers the modern big data industry and technological trends (HDFS, MapReduce, Yarn); and also attention is paid to such popular software products in the Hadoop ecosystem as Spark2x, HBase, Hive, Flink, Flume, Kafka, and Zookeeper. A significant part of the course were practical exercises that were performed on the Huawei ICT Academy software and hardware platform using detailed methodological instructions. The hardware and software platform of Huawei ICT Academy is a cluster of three nodes, which is accessed via the SSH protocol. The course is taught by Huawei Academy instructors in English."

The Huawei Academy ICT education courses will be launched in September 2020. They will be available as part of the basic educational programmes for students of the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science learning computer and information sciences, computer science and computer technology, electronics, radio engineering and communication systems, and more.
