One of the greatest scientists of Russia, Mikhail Vasilievich Lomonosov praised science with these words. In the middle of the XVIII century this idea had not been new. The words about the high destiny of science had been uttered by another famous ancient philosopher, a politician and a brilliant speaker Marcus Tullius Cicero Our great compatriot in one of his scientific treatises explained the ancient theory in the following way: «Science is a clear cognition of truth, an enlightenment of the mind, a pure entertainment in life, a praise to the young and a support to the old.»
At the Institute for the Humanities and Information Technologies they treat science seriously. And this statement applies equally both to the professorial and teaching staff of IGUMO and the students' community.
In higher educational system everything is interconnected. A teacher can remain at the peak of professional competence only if he is constantly developing and doing research. In his turn a student trained to perceive doctrine broadens his range of interests, his attitude, his perception of the world and makes his intellect more powerful. A student of IGUMO makes his first steps toward big science at the institute.
