This paper discusses the effective models of cooperation of universities and IT companies, as well as the hierarchic approach towards projecting certain decision making support systems (DSS) based on fuzzy logic. Special attention is paid to fuzzy DSS as an advisor in choosing the most appropriate cooperation model for a certain department of universities eager to become partners within the frames of future cooperation with a certain IT company. The article features hierarchic structure, results of rule bases and DSS software based on the approximation of fuzzy systems with discrete output. It also contains the results of imitational DSS modeling based on the elaborated DSS developing the most rational model of cooperation for a university party of the cooperation of the “University—IT company” type.
