Alexei Masterov :: Education
 


 

I have a Master of Science degree from one of the best universities in the world - Columbia University in the city of New York.  I graduated in February of 2007 with a major in Computer Science and specialization in Computer Vison and Graphics.  While studying there I completed a number of advanced courses in Information Security, Operating Systems, Software Engineering, User Interface Design, Content Networking, Machine Learning, Analysis of Algorithms, Computer Vision, 3D photography, etc., which, together with my experience, give me an edge in the field of computer science.

I also hold a Bachelor of Arts degree from Hunter College of CUNY.  I graduated in May of 2002 with departmental honors majoring in Mathematics and Computer Science.  This degree gave me a great deal of universal knowledge, as well as ability to think outside the box, think logically, deal with ambiguity, and birds-eye-view expertise in many different areas of science and humanities . I was a recipient of a National Science Foundation scholarship in mathematics.  Graduating within the top 15% of my class I was also awarded a membership to the Golden Key International Honor Society.

I am truly bilingual (Russian/English) and have published articles in both languages.  I am able to translate between the two, and have a basic familiarity with German, Spanish, and Latin.
