The department has more than 30 years of practical experience in training.

Department of Automated Production Management Systems (APMS) was established on July 1, 1978 by the order of Ministry of Education of the USSR in May 19, 1978 № 156 (the order of Rector of the Kiev Polytechnic Institute number 80 -“1″ in June 16, 1978) for system engineers at speciality 2202 ” Computer-Aided management and data processing systems. Head of the department – professor Pavlov O.A.

Since 1987 at the SCB MMS of the V. M. Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (now it is the Institute of Problems of Mathematical Machines and Systems of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine) branch of the department operates, which has considerable scientific potential and modern computing devices.

According to the rector’s order № 1-161 from September 19, 1992 APMS department was renamed to the Department of Computer-Aided Management and Data Processing Systems (CAMDPS).

Since 1993-1994 academic year CAMDPS Department training students at “Bachelor degree and Specialist degree” system. Bachelor academic program in 1993-1994 academic year was 6.0804 “Computer Information Technologies”.

Since 1994-1995 academic year bachelor academic program is 6.0804 “Computer Science”.

Since 1995-1996 academic year code name and specialty have changed to 7.080401 “Computer-aided information processing and management systems”. In June 1996 there was the first issue of bachelors according “Computer Science” academic program.

In April, 1997 by the order of Minister of Education #108 there was established a training and research complex “Uzhgorod State Institute of Informatics, Economics and Law – National Technical University “KPI” for common phased training of higher education specialists according academic programs 0804 Computer Science and 0502 “Management”.

Complexes provide coordination of joint activities of educational institutions to implement the Law of Ukraine “On education”, the introduction of multigraded training system for training and retraining specialists, the joint development of teaching and methodical maintenance.

Since 1997-1998 academic year there is three-graded “bachelor – specialist – master” system of training specialists. Since 1997-1998 academic year masters training is realized according 8.080401 “Computer-aided Information Processing and Management Systems” speciality. In June, 1998 there was first issue of masters according 8.080401 “Computer-aided Information Processing and Management Systems” speciality.

In the 1998-1999 academic year speciality has changed the name to “Information management systems and technologies”. That’s why since 1998-1999 academic year masters training is realized according 8.080401 “Information management systems and technologies” speciality.

In April, 1999 there was established a training and research complex “Smilyansky College of Food Industry – National Technical University “KPI” for common phased training of higher educated specialists according academic programs 0804 “Computer Science” and 0914 “Computer systems, automation and control”.

Agreement was signed between an educational-scientific complex of the “Informatics and management Center” of NTUU “KPI, one of subdivisions of which is Informatics and computer engineering faculty, and the V. M. Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics of the NAS of Ukraine about common participation in scientific and educational activities. In December, 2000 by the joint order of the rector of National Technical University of Ukraine “Kyiv Polytechnical Institute” and director of V. M. Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics of National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine branch of the “Computer-Aided Information Processing and Management Systems” department of Informatics and computer engineering faculty of NTUU “KPI” was established within V. M. Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics. Academician-secretary of Computer Science Division of NAS of Ukraine, V. M. Glushkov Institute of Cybernetics director Sergienko I.V. was appointed as a head of branch of the CAMPDS Department.

Training of specialists according 8.080401 “Information Management Systems and Technologies” speciality accredited at level IV (accreditation certificate CД-ІV series # 110,089 from “28” of September, 2001), is realized by license A series # 109,798 from “26” of July, 2001 by categories of educational activities according to Rector’s order № 1-128 from “18” of September, 2001 about fixing of specialities.

The CAMPDS Department is primary department in Ukraine by 0804 “Computer science” academic program and 7.080401” Information Management Systems and Technologies systems” speciality. For many years head of CAMPDS Department professor Pavlov O.A. is a head of the scientific-methodical committee of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine by “Computer Science” academic program.

Permanent great competition among entrants is evidence of its great popularity.

In the 2008-2009 academic year there were 429 daily studying students (among them 149 students were studying by contract, 17 students were foreign students) and 132 students were studying in tuition by correspondence form (among them 77 students – by contract).
