Welcome to the Higher Institute for Information Technology and Information Systems

The Higher Institute for Information Technology and Information Systems (ITIS) is one of the youngest and the most innovative departments of Kazan Federal University. It was founded in 2011 by the initiative of the Ministry of Information and Communication of the Republic of Tatarstan, Kazan Federal University and IT-Park.

Our mission is to advance knowledge and educate students in science and technology, and to train highly-skilled IT-specialists. ITIS also offers courses for the professional training and retraining of  employees of IT enterprises and implements applied research projects.

There is a strong educational system at ITIS: Classes are conducted by professors and scientists of Kazan Federal University, and special courses are delivered by developers and engineers from major IT companies. A range of courses are taught by professors invited from universities abroad. In addition to the theory and fundamental disciplines, we pay special attention to the applied disciplines. We have more than 20 research IT labs (Microsoft lab, Samsung Android lab, IOS lab, Cisco Innovation center, Fujitsu Lab, Robotics Lab, Intelligence Search Systems lab etc.) at ITIS, where students work on R&D projects.

The Higher Institute for Information Technology and Information Systems offers: a Bachelor's degree program in Applied Informatics (4 years, full time studies), and a Master's degree program in Software Engineering (2 years.
