Facts from history

The history of the Faculty goes back to 1959 – when the Department of Automation of Technological Processes and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Electronics were established at the Petrochemical Faculty of Gubkin Moscow Oil Institute. The history of the Faculty as a separate structural unit dates back to 1962 – when the Faculty of Radio Electronics and Automation was established at the University. In 1972 the Faculty was renamed and received its current name. At the moment, the research and pedagogical schools founded by outstanding scientists A. Melik-Shakhnazarov, B. Menshov and N. Buslenko continue their work successfully at the Faculty.
