The training center of Sumy IT-company MindK will operate at SSU. The cooperation agreement was signed on November 4, 2015. According to this agreement SSU students can have an internship and training at the company with the possibility of future employment. The founder and the head of the company Oleh Nesterov, who has graduated from the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics of SSU considers the strategic cooperation to be quite interesting.

About 80% of MindK employees are the SSU graduates. In the future, the demand in highly qualified workers will be growing. It is in the best interest of the company to make talented IT professionals, SSU students, stay working in Sumy, because they would know that after graduation they can find a promising highly-paid job in the hometown.

Oleh Nesterov stresses out the fact, that studying at SSU has helped him greatly. In the university he has learned basic disciplines that every IT-professional has to know.

According to the first vice-rector of SSU Vasyl Karpusha Sumy State University solves the problem of combining theory and practice by creating training centers. Employers are directly involved in educational process: they teach and help with the formation of the curriculums. It is an opportunity for students to obtain the basic knowledge and at the same time complete practically oriented training in order to focus on the labor market and get a prestigious job even during studying or immediately after graduation.

According to the Dean of the Faculty of Electronics and Information Technologies Serhii Protsenko, the cooperation with IT companies covering different sectors of the labor market enables students to try out different IT areas. Until now the sector of web technologies and web programming taken by MindK has been barely covered by the university. There are millionaires, the founders of IT companies among the graduates of the faculty. This fact confirms that the university trains competitive specialists.
