Department of Information Technology is among the founding departments of the faculty. The term "information" in its name first appeared in the 1970s when it was called the Department of Information Systems and the Use of Computers. It was specialized in programming, designing IS, data processing and accounting. At the beginning of 1990s it separated into the Department of Trade and Finance and Department of Computer Science. Due to the development of the ICT sector in late 1990s, the Department split once again into the Department of Information Technology and the Department of Information Engineering.
