The Computer Science and Telecommunications Institute is a leader in training of highly-skilled specialists in the area of information technologies and computer sciences. Since 1994, the Institute has been implementing a multi-level system of education in computing and system analysis. It allows students to take part in international research projects and to become competitive specialists in the modern innovative economy. Among graduates of the institute, there are about 200 candidates and doctors of science. The Institute’s graduates became the first graduates of the University who defended their doctoral dissertations abroad.

Today the Institute of Computer Science and Telecommunications has programs in four main areas: telecommunications, information security, systems analysis and programming. There are more than 250 students receiving scholarships from the government and 19 Master’s degree programs, 130 doctors and candidates of science, the most modern methods in education, and 100% employment. The institute provides postgraduate and project education, participation in research projects of the Russian Academy of Sciences and industrial enterprises of the Krasnoyarsk region, education abroad, and scholarships and funded programs.

Theoretical and practical training and joint projects allow students to develop on-board satellite communication computers, to optimize transport systems and estimate economical risks, to protect computer networks, and to construct mobile communications. Students develop computer-based systems related to space stations for teaching robots to move in an unknown environment, for face recognition systems in video images and for fire recognition in satellite pictures.

At present, the institute consists of 9 departments: computer science and engineering; information and management systems; information technologies security; systems analysis and operations research; electronics and telecommunications; applied mathematics; higher mathematics; space information systems; and closed ecological systems.
