Department trains specialists who have fundamental grounding not only in the field of hard and soft ware, but also in electrical engineering, microelectronics and information-measuring technique with high emphasis placed on deep study of precision aspects of created and used algorithms, methods, devices and systems. Such a training ensures quick adaptation of the graduates to changing requirements of the labour market. They work successfully both in the field of computer measurements (digital signal processing, smart sensors, virtual instruments, analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters, etc) and in almost all the fields of computer aids application (medicine, metrology, intrascopy, chromatography, etc).
The department teaches general courses of information-measuring technique at the faculties of Electrical engineering, Electromechanics, Automatics and Computer Science, Electronic engineering and MPEI-FESTO. Lecturers of the department conduct classes on raising the professional level of engineers of power engineering divisions at industrial enterprises. The department's laboratories are equipped with PC/586 computers (more than 20), united in local network with Internet access.
High prestige of the department is formed, in addition, by the authority of scientists and lecturers, who used to work and work now at the department, including:
The department trains Bachelors and Masters of engineering and technology (school 552800 "Informatics and computer science); specialists (engineers) in the field of "Computing machines, complexes, systems and networks" 220100 with the specialization 220105 "Computing and measuring systems".
