Faculty of Informatics and Applied Mathematics

The Faculty of Informatics and Applied Mathematics (IAM) of Yerevan State University is a leading educational and scientific centre preparing scientists for engaging in fundamental research in Informatics and Applied Mathematics as well as highly-qualified programmers.

The Faculty was founded in 1971 (initially called the Faculty of Applied Mathematics) on the base of the Chair of Computing Mathematics, which was opened in the Faculty of Physics and Mathematics in 1957. A decisive role in Faculty’s establishment, defining the roadmap of its scientific research and preparing human resources for the Faculty was played by such distinguished scientists as: A.A. Lyapunov, S.N. Mergelyan, Yu.I. Juravlyov. S.N. Mergelyan was also the first Head of the Chair of Numerical Analysis - one of the three Chairs of the new founded Faculty.

At present the Faculty of IAM consists of three chairs: Chair of Programming and Information Technologies, Chair of Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Informatics and Chair of Numerical Analysis and Mathematical Modelling. The Staff of the Faculty includes more than 10 Doctors of Sciences and around 50 of the employees are Candidates of Science (PhD). Many of them are well-known not only in Armenia but also abroad. The Faculty prepares Bachelors specialized in “Informatics and Applied Mathematics” (both, full- and part-time). All three Chairs of the Faculty provide courses for this purpose. The Faculty provides Master degree in four different programmes. Three of them are carried out in the correspondent Chairs and one is being realized in collaboration with SYNOPSYS company. The study plan for the students of the Faculty provides a fundamental mathematical training and a wide spectrum of courses, related to computers and programming; a significant part of study is a practical work realized on computers.

Since its establishment the Faculty of IAM has been collaborating productively with the Yerevan Research Institute of Mathematical Machines and the Institute for Informatics and Automation Problems of NAS of Armenia (previously, Computing Centre of The Academy of Sciences of ASSR), being the main provider of highly-qualified specialists for these organizations. The Faculty has close scientific contacts with leading educational and scientific centres of Russia, such as M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University, A.A. Dorodnicin Computing Centre of Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), V.A. Steklov Institute of Mathematics of RAS. The employees and PhD students of the Faculty defend their dissertations in Armenia and as well as in mentioned centres of Russia. The Faculty has scientific contacts with the Paderbor University (Germany).

Lots of the graduates are working in different countries in the fields where computers are used, that is academic and research institutes, universities, state and government organizations, banks, companies with IT profile etc.
