Lutsk National Technical University officially opened the magistracy in specialty 121 "Software Engineering".

On this occasion, the University  held a scientific and practical  seminar  "Prospects for Masters in specialty 121" Software Engineering ". The event was divided into 4 thematic sections:

- Formation of quality management and competitiveness enhancement tools (CISCO resources);

- Software for organization of information resources on the Internet;

- Inclusive education for children with special needs in Ukraine;

- Software for analysis and modeling of dynamic systems (application in education and modern scientific researches).

  First of all,  the Head of the Department of Computer Technologies and Professional Education, Natalia Cherniashchuk greeted all the guests:

"This is a promising specialty defined by the needs of the time. Today  the programming industry is one of the most perpective and dynamic branches of the world and Ukrainian economy. The forecast of the economic development of the industry is restrained by the shortage of skilled personnel, therefore the training of specialists in the field of software engineering focused on the effective organization of the software development process, the implementation of technological principles, and the industrial design of software systems is relevant. Demand for highly skilled programmers is steadily growing, and the programmer's profession is one of the most prestigious and highly paid. In the list of the most profitable and necessary professions that will be popular for the next 5 years, one of the first places is the programmer. Highly skilled specialists in the creation and maintenance of software are in demand  in  all sectors of the economy, so software engineering is a profession of the future, "said Cherniashchuk.

  After  the  Vice-Rector on scientific and pedagogical work of  Lutsk NTU Valentyn Talakh had a welcome speech:

  "In Lutsk NTU last two weeks were  devoted to IT technologies. The IT school for pupils of 8-11 grades in Volyn region has recently been closed. Today we have gone up to the higher level - the magistracy. The children who have taken  part in the IT school are very educated people who are intellectually advanced, who are ahead of their age. And this is probably not for nothing, because the tasks and the role, that  they are currently doing in the IT industry, can not be compared to anything. I think that there will be no competition for the next 50 years. You create the future, culture, technological process of the future. I wish you the greatest achievements and good impressions from the work of the round table. "
