The College of IT & Automated Control Systems was established in 2010. The College is comprised of six departments: Automated Control Systems, Engineering Cybernetics, Computer-Aided Design, Automatization, Electric Engineering, and Information & Measurement Systems.
More than 900 undergraduate and graduate students study at the College, and it also provides training for PhD students. The College teaches students about the actual modern conditions of the fields through cross-sectorial training programs. Students professionally master modern hardware and software, the theory and practice of information systems implementation, methods of mathematical modeling and data analyses, and application development tools.
During studies students do practical training in leading Russian and international companies. Starting from the 1st year of studies, they can participate in research and team competitions in collegiate programming. NUST MISIS alumni are able to conduct research in the field of Computer Science at a high professional level and to successfully solve practical and applied tasks in industry and business.The College launched the Center New Reality to intensify students` participation in Olympiads and contests. It supervises students` performances in international and Russian competitions. The College teams annually get into the semi-finals of the world programming championships operating under ACM ICPC rules. In 2014, in the final ranking, one of the College teams took 19th place in the world jointly with teams from MIT and Kyoto University, ahead of teams from the University of Cambridge, Stanford University, and ETH Zurich.
