Faculty of Geoinformatics and Information Security

The Faculty of Geoinformatics and Information Security is one of the most modern faculties of the Moscow State University of Geodesy and Cartography. The faculty combines academic tradition and an innovative approach to education. The faculty produces highly qualified specialists (Bachelors, Masters and PhD students) in the field of geoinformation systems, information security technologies, and applied informatics.  Faculty graduates can work in the traditional fields of IT industry - such as the development of information systems, or the information security of automated systems. But in addition, graduates of this faculty can be in demand in completely new industries - such as the design of cyber-physical systems.

For many organizations in today's world, information is the most important asset, and its protection is critical to ensure that organizations perform their functions. Information security specialists are among the most sought-after specialists in the modern labour market. Training in this area is carried out on the basis of an effective combination of fundamental and applied education using advanced educational technologies, such as virtual laboratories for teaching penetration testing
The education program provides opportunities for students to acquire knowledge, abilities and skills in such areas as programming, administration of information systems from the point of view of an information security specialist, administration of information security tools, development of organizational and administrative documents in the field of information security.
Graduates of this field of study are already working in such well-known companies as Positive Technologies, Group-IB, Mail.ru Group, Lanit.
In the frame of this education program specialists are trained in the design and creation of applied software, namely, software for solving specific user problems. Some of the disciplines taught reflect the specifics of MIIGAiK, allowing you to acquire subject in the field of processing and analysis of spatial data. In addition, students acquire knowledge, abilities and skills in such areas as the basics of machine learning, artificial neural networks, computer graphics, network and web technologies. Graduates of this program are trained to work in the field of application software development as programmers or systems analysts.

Information systems and technologists have long continued to be a significant growth driver in many subject areas. They include business, government services, and the social sphere, so graduates in this specialty are in demand in all these areas. The education program trains specialists in the design and development of information systems in this area. And also, taking into account the specifics of MIIGAiK, specialists in the field of geographic information systems. An obligatory part of the training is the study of programming languages, methods of data analysis, including spatial, as well as machine learning methods.
In the learning process, students implement their own projects, and also learn to accompany them at all stages of the life cycle.
Graduates of this program are prepared for project activities in the design and development of information systems for various purposes as programmers or system analysts.

This is new direction of training for MIIGAiK based on scientific research in the field of information security of geoinformation systems and spatial data collection and processing systems conducted at the Faculty of Information and Measuring Systems of MIIGAiK. The first enrollment of students is scheduled for August 2021.
Graduates of this program will be trained as specialists in the security of computer systems and networks or specialists in the protection of information in automated systems (including geographic information systems).
Geographic information systems (GIS) are an important class of information systems. GIS is a spatial data processing tool that integrates various aspects of this data related to location, and enables the collection, processing and analysis of spatial data. GIS can work with all kinds of spatial data, including topographic and geological data, as well as statistical and epidemiological data. Graduates of this program are trained to work as developers of geographic information systems or spatial data collection systems.
Information and communication systems, and technologies play an important role in all aspects of the modern society. They have changed the way we communicate with each other, the way of finding the necessary information, work, do business, interact with government agencies and how manage the social life. These systems and technologies so strongly affect various aspects of society, therefore, when developing, implementing and operating it, it is necessary to take into account the possible risks associated with violations of information security. Students of the education program are preparing for activities in the field of the system problems analysis of information processing at the level of an info-communication system, risk management of software development and implementation of information security regulations.
