Professions of our graduates

The special thing about the faculty of Applied Mathematics and Control Processes is that it's established for solving the problems of applied character. In present-day world applied problems, i.e. problems, that persons solve regularly, are with highest priority.

Speciality and field of activityAdvantages of graduates of the faculty of Applied Mathematics and Control ProcessesNecessary knowledge, getting at the faculty of Applied Mathematics and Control ProcessesNumber of the main field of study (see the chart with general information for students)
Programming Our graduates successfully work in IT-technologies not only in Russia, but also abroad.
Programmer Our students work in companies, whose activity is connected with programming. Programming languages: C++, C#, Java, special WEB-programming courses 1, 2, 3
IT-specialist system programmer, database programmer Understanding the fundamentals of programming and principles of mathematical modeling, also knowledge of basic principles of computer systems allows the graduates to qualify for such kind of work. Lecturers of the Department of Technology of Programming hold different special training courses. For example:
  • Standard Computer Software
  • Information systems and database
1, 2, 3
Programmer of computer security systems and data safety Knowledge of the main principles of network construction and ability to control it, also understanding the main algorithms of computational algebra and cryptography allows our graduates to create new software complexes for information security and transmitted data.
  • Architecture and Safety of Windows Networks
