Departments

The Faculty of Applied Mathematics, Informatics, and Mechanics means being the best at everything!

  • One of the best IT departments in Russia
  • A unique combination of fundamental education in information technology and training in economics and management
  • The largest number of state-funded places at VSU
  • A large selection of free courses of specialised extracurricular education
  • Free courses in English and German (4-6 hours per week)
  • A large number of joint conferences, meetups, hackathons, IT-talks jointly with IT companies
  • Additional scholarships: social, incentive, of the VSU Rector’s office, of the governor of the Voronezh Region, of the government of the Russian Federation, of the Potanin Foundation, of the NLMK, LUKOIL, INFORMSVYAZ companies, etc.
  • Students at the faculty are trained for employment in the leading regional companies. Accommodation in the dormitory is provided to students from other cities and countries.

The history of the faculty goes back to 1918, when the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics was opened among the first faculties of Voronezh State University. The Faculty of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics was founded in 1969 following the split-off of the Faculty of Applied Mathematics, Informatics, and Mechanics and the Faculty of Mathematics. The faculty was founded mainly thanks to the efforts of the famous scientist, Professor G.I. Bykovtsev, who became its first dean. The faculty was formed as a result the rapid development of computer technology and the growing demand for specialists who were able to apply it in scientific, industrial, and other spheres of human activity.
