History of the department: 

The history of the educational and scientific department begins with the creation of the Department of Fire Automation and Communications as a result of the restructuring of the Lviv Fire and Technical School of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine into the Lviv Institute of Fire Safety of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine.
At the beginning of the department, it was headed by Lieutenant Colonel of the Internal Service RENKAS Andrii. Further, in connection with the periodic restructuring of the institute and the reorganization of the Lviv Institute of Fire Safety into Lviv State University of Life Safety, the department was renamed "Fire Automation, Electrical Engineering and Communications", which was later headed by Candidate of Technical Sciences, Lt. Col. Taras RAK.

In the process of development and reform of the educational institution, as well as the constant increase in the number of information-oriented disciplines, in 2006 the department was divided into the Department of Electrical Engineering, Industrial and Fire Automation and the Department of Information Technology and Telecommunications Systems. Information and Transport Security was headed by Ihor MALETS, Candidate of Technical Sciences, Lieutenant Colonel of the Civil Protection Service.

In 2007, the first recruitment of cadets and students majoring in "Information Security Management" was licensed and carried out on the basis of the department, which led to another increase in the number of training courses and the number of research and teaching staff. Subsequently, the department transferred part of the disciplines of the new specialty for teaching at the newly created department of "Information Security Management".

Since 2010, the department is part of the Institute (later Educational and Scientific Institute) of Civil Defense of Lviv State University of Life Safety. In 2011, with the active participation and hard work of Dr. Sc. scientific degree "Candidate of Technical Sciences" in the relevant specialty. At the same time, the specialized scientific council K 35.874.02 for the defense of dissertations in the specialty "Project and Program Management" begins to function at the University.

Due to the opening of a new specialty and partial reform of the department, it was renamed "Project Management, Information Technology and Telecommunications", which was headed by the head, Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor of RAK Yurii.

As a result of reforming the higher education system and transforming the specialty "Project Management" into the specialty 073 "Management" and 122 "Computer Science and Information Technology", in 2016 the department began training cadets and students in two new specialties "Master". In connection with the beginning of educational activities in two specialties and a slight reform of the department, since August of the same year the department is headed by Doctor of Technical Sciences, Professor MARTYN Yevhen.
