Research Activities

Institute of Computer Science as an independent unit of the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Technology was established on 1 September 2000. Initially it was part of the Institute of Physics and Computer Science (as the Department of Computer Science - KMK).

The scientific research of Institute of Computer Science
is conducted within five Departments.
