The department trains specialists in the application of information technologies in complex innovative areas of nuclear energy and nuclear safety, virtual reality and visualization of management decisions.
Between 2012 and 2019, about 15 projects were completed by teachers, students and graduate students of the Faculty of Physics and Technology, including:
• Virtual modeling of minimally invasive surgeries.
• Research and development of models of force interaction of virtual objects in the problems of modeling molecular systems.
• Research and development of methods for forecasting man-made accidents according to remote sensing data.
• Research and development of a nanosecond interpolator of large amounts of data for metamodeling and optimization of complex systems in a virtual environment.
• Research and development of computer experiments on Earth’s neutrino tomography using super-computing technologies and virtual environments.
• The study of visual 3d perception in virtual environment systems.
• Reengineering of a software and hardware complex for training movements on habitable spacecraft in a virtual environment (SpaceVR).
Research and development of information and analytical systems to ensure situational awareness of decision-makers on the problem of the spread of toxic substances from containers and corps munitions underwater dumping.
As well as teachers, students and graduate students of the Department of Physics and Technology take an active part in the implementation of scientific research and the work of the annual International Conferences (“Situation Centers and Information and Analytical Systems of Class 4i for Monitoring and Security Tasks” (SC-IAS4i-VRTerro, Moscow), “Physics -technical informatics “(CPT, Cyprus)).
