Brief historical overview

The Department of Information Systems and Computer Engineering has gone through numerous transformations and much organizational restructuring during the 50 years of its history:

  • 1964 – Professor L.P. Kraizmer, a nationally renowned academic, founded a Computer Technology department at the Northwest state Technical Institute with the support of A.I. Berg, a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
  • 1970 – Professor V.I. Nikolaev, expert in systems science and engineering, became chairman of the department.
  • 1986 – The Department of Computer Technology was renamed the Department of Systems Engineering and Computer Technology in order to reflect the conceptual changes in the field of information technology, and the corresponding development of key areas of the Department’s work.
  • 1997 –The Department joined with the Department of Administrative Processes and Information Systems in order to survive a difficult period in the world of higher education.
  • 2001 –The Department changed its name to the Department of Computing Technologies and Software, but in 2007 it became the Department of Computing Machines, Complexes, Systems and Networks to reflect the specializations offered.
  • 2012 – The Department became a part of the National University of Mineral Resources (the Mining University) following the merger of the Northwest State Technical University with the Mining University and acquired its present name.

In the past, the Department has been led by a number of renowned scientists: Professor L.P. Kraizmer, Professor V.I. Strelets, Professor V.I. Nikolaev, Professor G.I. Ankudinov and Professor I.A. Brigadnov. At the present time, the chair of the Department of Information Systems and Computer Engineering is Assistant Professor E.B. Mazakov.
