Teachers, technicians and PhD students specialize mainly on applied research, which is in line with university and faculty goals.

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 the Department split into two again in the second half of the 90s - the Department of Information Technology and the Department of Information Engineering.
