    How the “Smart City” system works, what kinds of programmers does St. Petersburg need right now and what is the difference between working as an IT expert at a commercial firm and at a government enterprise? Starting in September 2017, the Department of State Information Systems Management will form a supervisory board for the Master’s degree program “State Information Systems Management”. The board will include representatives from the city’s various businesses and enterprises at which the future graduates might find employment.
