The name was changed to Faculty of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science in 1993. In 1994-95, the Faculty moved to two-stage (bachelor and master programs instead of one five-year program) teaching. "Computer Science" was one of the bachelor's degree programs.
Now, Computer Sciences department is a part of The Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences. has a rich and flexible academic organization. The Faculty of Exact and Natural Sciences Highly qualified professors, teachers, and growing material-technical base create excellent grounds for training competent professionals. Currently, the faculty has 8 departments: departments of Mathematic, Physic, Chemistry, Geography, Computer Sciences, Biology, Geology, Electric and Electronic Engineering.
After the reform conducted in 2006, the Faculties were merged. The Faculty of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science was merged with 6 other faculties and now it is a Department of Computer Science under the Faculty of Exact and Natural Science.
The Department includes 4 Subdivisions (Theoretical Informatics, Applied Informatics, Practical Informatics and Technical Informatics) and Supporting Scientific Laboratory (Laboratory for technical and software).
The Department includes 25 academic personnel (4 Professors, 12 Associate Professors, and 9 assistant Professors). There are 400-450 students registered for Bachelor degree in total. The number varies depending on the total number of admitted students to the faculty.
