09.04.01 Information technology and computer engineering

This educational area focuses on in-depth training of professionals in the development of computer equipment and network hardware (machines, complexes, or systems) and software (complexes and systems). Students receive instruction in automated and distributed data processing, control, and computer-aided design (CAD) systems and data support for industrial products lifecycles, along with their mathematical, informational, technological, linguistic, software, ergonomic and organizational support. Seekers of a master’s degree under this program are to master the CAD tools to design modern computer equipment, and to develop its diagnostic and control tools and tests.
