STEPANAKERT—Plans are set and preparations are underway for the launch of a Computer Information Systems degree at the Artsakh State University later this year.
The project, aptly named “iArtsakh,” is an undertaking of Los Angeles based non-profit Scholars for Scientific, Educational, and Cultural Development in collaboration with the Armenian Educational Foundation, Artsakh Prime Ministry and Artsakh State University.
“We have worked closely with officials at the Artsakh State University to develop the curriculum for the Computer Information Systems degree,” said SSECD board member Dr. Razmig Shirinian. “At this time we are accepting applications for instructors who will reside in Stepanakert and teach various courses.”
The new program will include basic CIS curriculum as well advanced courses in software design, database design, PHP, C#, Java and HTML5.
“Information about the open instructor position as well as an application are available on the “iArtsakh” section of SSECD.org,” said Shirinian. “We encourage all who are interested to apply no later than May 1st.”
“iArtsakh,” a project of Scholars for Scientific, Educational, and Cultural Development, aims to advance the IT sector in Artsakh by promoting education, employment and empowerment.
