The Institute provides students with the world class education in the field of information technology and telecommunications. From the day students first enter the Institute they are involved in exciting developments and building the future of high technologies.


Practical and theoretical training as well as joint projects allow students to develop onboard computers of communication satellites, optimize transportation and assess economic risks, protect computer networks from intrusions from the Internet and design mobile communication systems.

Students computerize projects of space probes and develop robots ability to move in an unknown environment, develop face recognition systems on video images and fire traces in satellite images.

Computer Science is one of the best careers for the future. Specialists in information security maintenance and information systems which are the basic specialties of the Institute are in high demand. Alumni of the institute work in the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation (FSB), other Intelligence or government agencies, large corporations and computer companies.



 Students of the Institute have an opportunity to go for exchange education or internship to Ulm University of Applied Sciences (Germany), Czech Technical University in Prague (Czech Republic) and others.
