Yerevan/Mediamax/. VivaCell-MTS and Synopsys Armenia opened the Department of Communication, Microelectronic Circuit and Systems at the European Regional Educational Academy in Yerevan.
 
Synopsys Armenia, VivaCell-MTS and the European Regional Educational Academy signed agreement on cooperation in summer of 2011. In frames of the agreement VivaCell-MTS allocated funds to rehabilitate the respective auditorium area specified by EREA to bring it into correspondence with the state-of-the-art education standards and requirements.

According to the educational model developed by Synopsys Armenia the program will accept 2nd year students of the School of IT at EREA, who have successfully completed Bachelor’s Degree courses in general subjects.

The selection of the students will be made by the specialists of Synopsys Armenia, VivaCell-MTS and leading professors of the EREA.

Synopsys Armenia has undertaken the responsibility for the organization of regular trainings for professors of the department.
 
“The formation of the country’s intellectual capital must be steered in close cooperation with the business. One of the important steps to success is the recruitment of competitive workforce. VivaCell-MTS has supported the development of the sphere of education through a variety of programs, realizing that education is the weapon to face the challenges of time.  Participation in the process of preparing human resources for providing balance between supply and demand is important. Armenia’s leading mobile operator encourages all those efforts that are aimed at the development of the next generation,” said VivaCell-MTS General Manager Ralph Yirikian.
