On 9 December 2021, a meeting of graduates, faculty members, researchers and students of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Simulation was held at Gubkin University on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Department.
Since its establishment, the Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Simulation has trained over 1800 engineering mathematicians, who have defended in Russia alone more than 170 dissertations for the degree of Doctor and/or Candidate of Science. The Department carefully keeps up its traditions, therefore its graduates are high professionals, working for leading research centers, oil and gas and IT companies in Russia and worldwide.
On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Simulation, a series of open lectures was organized in 2020 – 2021 by its graduates, including Mr. Alexander Shapiro, Professor and Head of the Oil Education Program at Danish Technical University (graduate of 1988), Mr. Alexander Khavkin, Professor of the Department of Oil and Gas and Subsurface Hydromechanics at Gubkin University (graduate of 1975), Mr. Denis Voskov, Professor of Delft University of Technology (graduate of 1998), and Mr. Leonid Korelstein, Deputy Director of NTP Truboprovod (graduate of 1983).

In addition, the book «The Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Simulation. 50 years» dedicated to the history of the Department, its faculty and staff members and graduates was published on the occasion of the 50th anniversary.
During the meeting, Gubkin University leadership, faculty and staff members of the Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Simulation and its graduates extended their greetings and congratulations to all the participants.
