Automatic control;

Computer science and engineering;

Software for computer systems;

Applied mathematics and computer science;

Physical culture and sports.

The faculty trains highly qualified specialists in computer technologies, software engineering, and automation. They are in demand not only in Kyrgyzstan, but also in the near and far abroad: Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Tajikistan, India, Algeria, Colombia, Somalia, Morocco, Sri Lanka, Cuba, etc. Classes are held in 10 training laboratories and 14 computer classes that use the most modern equipment: server stations, communication nodes, backup systems and protection against failures.

Since 2010, fit teachers have been participating in TEMPUS projects: HEICA (Higher Education Initiative for Informatics in Central Asia)to develop and implement modern training programs and three extensive modules (Software Engineering; Information Segurity) for bachelor's and master's degrees. In this direction, more than 10 years of training is conducted in English. European accreditation of these training programs is expected in 2013. A master's degree in computer Science and programming technology has been opened. This master's program operates at the Department of IVT and was developed jointly with European, Russian and Kazakh universities based on recommendations and with the support of the European Union.
