Head of the information technologies department: Volkov Maxim Anatolyevich, associate professor.
The IT department was founded in June, 2006 owing to the merger of two faculties: «Mechanical-mathematical Faculty» (MMF) and «Faculty of information technologies and telecommunications» (FITT) into one «Faculty of mathematics and information technologies». At the same time two departments were closed down: the «Mathematical Cybernetics and Information Science» department (existing in the structure of MMF) and the Information Technologies and Systems department (existing in the structure of FITT). Instead of these departments (and from among their employees) the department of "Information technologies" was formed.
The department is staffed with highly qualified specialists who have an extensive experience of practical work in the field of information technologies. At the moment there are 12 regular teachers working at the department, of them two professors. Teachers of the department conduct classes at many faculties and institutes of the university.
The department trains students in bachelor degree program 01.05.00 "Software and administration of information systems" (major — Technology of programming) and 23.07.00 «Application-oriented information science» (major — Information sphere). Master programs are offered in 01.05.00 "Software and administration of information systems". During the years of its existence the department has trained more than 400 specialists.
More than 10 PhD theses were defended by staff members of the department. Now 8 graduate students and 1 doctoral student pursue their training. Educational process is provided with a large number of the computer classrooms with access to the Internet and equipped with the modern computers and software.
