The IT Training Center has been established thanks to funding from the EC TEMPUS programme’s JEP 24167-2003 project. Our major goal is to provide hands on intensive training courses in IT and computer technology applications' use in education and research purposes. The main course contents and materials are created in cooperation with the project consortium members who are Tashkent Automotive Road Institute - Uzbekistan, Royal Institute of Technology, KTH - Sweden and Politecnico di Torino - Italy. Besides, the Center is actively involved in IT infrastructure creation and strategy development in IT applications for academics at Tashkent Automotive Road Institute. At the Center, there are highly qualified IT professionals working in their areas for a few consecutive years. In 2006, seven of the Center's full time staff members became MCP (Microsoft Certified Professionals) certified specialists and subsequently, the Center has become a member of Microsoft IT Academy Program and Platinum Member. All of the center staff members are keen to study, update their skills and to be involved in research. In fact, the center beyond the scope of its training services is involved in research in the area of intelligent computational techniques applications in engineering problems.
IT Training Center keeps friendly connections with a few European universities in IT and Engineering spheres, and a number of IT related Uzbek universities and institutions in the regions.
