Due to fruitful cooperation with the Department for training international students in the English-speaking environment, the Department of Electronic Computers trains foreign students in the speciality of Computer Systems and Networks in the English language, the number of foreign applicants increasing annually.

Scientific research work carried out at the Department of Electronic Computers is an additional base for the preparation of qualified teachers and masters in the basic disciplines of educational and scientific areas.

Students are engaged in scientific work under the guidance of experienced scientists and teachers who participate in international conferences and publish articles in professional journals. The results of research work are used during the teaching process in lectures and laboratory works on courses provided by the Department.
