History of the department: 


The history of the educational and scientific unit begins in 2001.  Lviv Fire and Technical College of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine was reorganized into the Lviv Institute of Fire Safety of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine. At the same time the Department of Fire Automatics and Communication was established.

The newly created department was headed by Andriy Renkas, lieutenant colonel of the internal service. Further, due to the periodic restructuring of the units of the institute and the reorganization into the Lviv State University of Life Safety, the department was renamed to Department of Fire Automation, Electrical Engineering and Communication, headed by lieutenant colonel of the civil defence service Taras Rak.

In the process of development and of the educational institution, as well as the constant increase in the number of disciplines, in 2006 the unit undergoes division into the Department of Electrical, Industrial and Fire Automatics and the Department of Information Technologies and Telecommunication Systems", which became the part of the newly created Faculty of Information and Transport Security. The Department was headed by lieutenant colonel of the civil protection service, Igor Malets.

In 2007 the first recruitment of cadets and students in the specialty “Information Security Management” was licensed and implemented at the department, which led to another increase in the number of training courses and the number of scientific and pedagogical staff. Subsequently, some disciplines were transferred to the newly created Department of Information Security Management.

In 2010 the Department became a part of the Institute (later Educational and Scientific Institute) of Civil Protection of Lviv State University of Life Safety. In 2011, owing also to Doctor of Sciences, Professor Yuriy Rak, a specialty "Project Management" was licensed at the department, which made it possible  for cadets and students to obtain the Master's and Doctorate degrees in the relevant specialty. At the same time, a specialized scientific council K 35.874.02 on the protection of theses in the specialty “Project and Program Management was established at the University.

Due to the opening of a new specialty and partial reformation of the department, it got a new name Department of Project Management, Information Technologies and Telecommunications". Professor Yuriy Rak became a new Head of Department.

In 2016, due to the higher education system reformation the department started training cadets and students in two new specialties:  073 “Management” and 122 “Computer Science and Information Technologies”.

Since August 2016 the department has been headed by Doctor of Sciences, Professor Yevgen Martyn.

In 2017, the department completed the first enrollment of students in the specialty 122 "Computer Sciences" of the Bachelor's degree (full-time and part-time groups).

In 2018 the department successfully completed the re-accreditation of the cycle of study in the specialty 122 "Computer Sciences" for obtaining the Master's degree.
