About CS Club

The Computer Science Club was founded in St. Petersburg in September 2007 with the help of Anton Likhodedov. The Club is currently supported by Anton Likhodedov (Deutsche Bank) and Yury Bogdanov (Rigmora Holdings). The main goal of the Club is to provide undergraduate and graduate students, as well as professionals, access to high quality education in the area of Computer Science. Lectures by St. Petersburg, Moscow and foreign instructors and researchers are usually held on Saturdays and Sundays at Steklov Institute of Mathematics at St. Petersburg (27 Fontanka Emb.). The core courses are graded and typically have a final exam. Some of the city universities allow their students to use Club course credits towards their Computer Science degree requirements. Attendance is open to everyone and is free of charge. Since 2007, more than 1000 undergraduate and graduate students took advantage of the Club's courses.

We are looking for course sponsors, video recording and broadcasting, travel grants for students participating in student schools and conferences.
