About the Department

 
Education in the area of information technologies at the University has objective pre-conditions, history of formation and development perspectives.
Department of Computer Sciences was founded in 2000. Since then, the Department graduates Bachelors and Masters in specialty 121 "Software Engineering".
From year to year, the department actively develops due to productive work of its staff.  The lecturers of department not only learn new methods of teaching, that allow to maximally activate the process of creative comprehension of educational practical material by students, but also, actively work in a scientific research area. 
Since 2003, postgraduate study under supervision of M.P. Dyvak functions in two specialties: 01.05.02 "Mathematical modeling and computational methods” (technical sciences); 08.00.11 "Mathematical methods, models and information technologies in economy”. They create opportunities for continuous training of the specialists in "Software Engineering". In 2016, these specialties were supplemented by specialty 121 "Software Engineering”.

For the university entrant about specialty "Software Engineering"
Today, there is no sphere of human activity that doesn’t use computers. It is impossible to imagine the system of state administration, banking system, systems of financial security, medicine, transport and environmental monitoring systems without the use of information technologies and computers. The problems of informatization and computerization require complex approach to development of main components of informatics and computing equipment that are computer sciences, software engineering, hardware engineering and information systems. Among the indicated components of informatics and computing equipment industry, the perspective one is software engineering. In close future, it will have substantial influence on development of information technologies industry in Ukraine. It is confirmed by the following facts. First, the trend of rapid increase in number of ІТ-companies in software development moving of their orders from the capital to other regions, and opening new subdivisions in these regions. In particular, the process of globalization conduced to appearance of large quantity of outsourcing companies at the Ukrainian IT market. Such companies involve Ukrainian specialists in software engineering in their projects. Secondly, high profitability of software development companies and relatively low competition level because, usually, every company finds its niche in this sphere.
 
Very important fact about training students in "Software Engineering" is collaboration between the Department and industrial software development companies, in particular, possibility of student and staff internships. Another important fact about students training quality is the access to licensed Microsoft software.
At the Department of Computer Science, students training is carried out at three levels: Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree and Doctor of Philosophy.
