About the faculty

The history of the department’s establishment is closely connected with the development of computer facilities of the university. From 1969 to 1975 in Brest Civil Engineering Institute  only small electronic digital computer of the “Promin” type, designed in Kiev and produced in Severodonetsk was operated. Programming was carried out in machine pseudocodes.

Since 1975, the EC of the VM "Nairi" type (Armenian SSR) has been added. These machines already had a high-level Russian-language programming language (YAP).
In December 1981, thanks to the efforts of the rector Leonard Ivanovich Korshun, the institute received two EC-1022 computers manufactured by the Brest Electromechanical Plant and CM-4 manufactured by the Kiev plant Elektronmash. These were quite modern at that time machines. Their software allowed working in many programming languages: FORTRAN, PL-1, Basic, etc

This allowed not only to put the educational process on a completely new level, but also to carry out scientific and technical calculations with high effect. A significant number of dissertations were prepared by teachers of technical departments using these machines.

Computer training of students of construction specialties was conducted on the SM-4 in an interactive mode, and in this respect the Brest Polytechnic Institute at one time became one of the leading universities not only on the scale of the republic, but also among the universities of the USSR.

Since 1970, in the basic course "Computer Science in Engineering and Technical Calculations" students have studied the basics of algorithmization and the programming language FORTRAN. With the introduction of the display class on the basis of the CM-4 interactive computing complex, a transition to the Basic language was carried out, which allowed literally every student to work in an interactive mode. The further development of the software has shown the correctness of this choice: currently Visual Basic successfully competes with such languages ​​as Delphi and C ++, and in Windows applications (Excel, Word, Access) VBA is the main programming language.

The staff and employees who carry out computer training for students grew as new computers were acquired and the proportion of computer disciplines increased.
Until 1978, these teachers and staff worked at the Department of Higher Mathematics, and since 1978 - at the Department of Organization and Automated Control Systems in Construction.

In October 1983, in accordance with the Order of the Ministry of Higher and Secondary Education of the BSSR, the Department of Computing Machinery and Applied Mathematics was created.
Since September 1, 2001 the Department of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics has been renamed into the Chair of Informatics and Applied Mathematics.

Since the creation and until 1997 the head of the department of VT and PM was Afonin Vladimir Gavrilovich, Ph.D., Associate Professor.
From 1997 to March 2009, the department was headed by Raketsky Valery Mikhailovich, Ph.D., Associate Professor.
Since 01.04.2009 the head of the department is Parfomuk Sergey Ivanovich, candidate of technical science, associate professor.

Scientific potential of the department:
• 1 Head of the department, Candidate of Technical Sciences, Associate Professor.S.I. Parfomuk.
• 1 Professor (A.Ya. Naychuk - Doctor of Technical Sciences);
• 5 Associate Professors (V.G. Afonin - Ph.D., Y.P. Ashaev - Ph.D., S.V. Mukhov - Ph.D., V.A. Kofanov - Ph.D., V.M. Raketsky - Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences);
• 7 Senior Teachers (E.N. Rubanova, L.V. Lizun, L.K. Ramskaya, T.G. Khomitskaya, I.V. Tuzik, I.M. Guchko, A.M. Kuleshova);
• 2 Assistants (N.N. Leonovich, S.V. Sidak).

The main scientific directions:
• computer simulation of various processes in nature, engineering, economics (Parfomuk S.I., Ashaev Yu.P., Kofanov V.A., Mukhov S.V., Parfomuk I.I., Raketzky V.M.);
• constructive optimization methods (Raketzky V.M., Khomitskaya T.G.);
• Numerical and analytical methods for solving ordinary differential equations (Afonin V.G., Tuzik I.V.).
