The Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics of Lomonosov Moscow State University (CMC MSU) was founded in 1970. The world famous mathematician Andrey Nikolaevich Tikhonov was the founder and the first Dean of the Faculty in 1970–1990. In 1990–1999, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) Dmitry Pavlovich Kostomarov was the second Dean of the Faculty. Since 1999, Academician of RAS Evgeny Ivanovich Moiseev has been the Dean of the Faculty.

Nowadays, the Faculty is a world leading training centre in the field of on Applied Mathematics and Computer Science. The Faculty comprises 19 departments and 16 scientific laboratories. More than 600 members of the staff, including about 300 professors and University teachers, more than 200 researchers, scientific and supporting staff work at the faculty. The training and scientific staff are highly qualified specialists, among them there are 15 Full Members (Academicians) of RAS and 13 Corresponding Members of RAS, more than 130 Doctors of Science and 240 Ph.D. There are more than 340 B.Sc., 280 M.Sc., and 70 Ph.D. enrolled students each year. Since 1970, the Faculty has been training specialists for the foreign countries, the total number of the foreign graduates is currently more than 1000, there are more than 100 foreign students from 14 countries now.

CMC MSU is a unique place for study, research, and collaboration. The Faculty is targeted on preparing elite specialists in Applied Mathematics, Informatics, and Computer Sciences. CMC MSU departments incorporate a broad range of curricular and research interests. The diverse selection of majors enables students to gain in-depth knowledge, acquire practical skills and professional competencies while developing an understanding of the broad reach of the discipline. There are more than 30 Bachelor (4 years), Master (2 years), and Ph.D. (3-4 years) programmes that cover the majority of modern directions in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science. Teaching of mathematical and computer science disciplines and scientific research at CMC MSU are based on utilizing of a wide range of modern computer facilities: Supercomputer BlueGene/P, 7 computer Labs for common purposes, 15 special computer Labs, about 350 computers for students, Multimedia  rooms and Multimedia Centre, 40 servers, 40 Tb data warehouse, and free WiFi.

After completing the curriculum and passing the final qualification exams each CMC MSU student is awarded the Diploma with bilingual (Russian and English) Supplement. The Supplement follows the model developed by the European Commission, Council of Europe and UNESCO/CEPES and contains the information on the education level, qualification (degree), specialization, description of the full-time courses and results gained, Credits (Academic hours) and Marks, etc.

CMC MSU holds a number of annual international conferences and schools: International Summer Supercomputing Academy, Rome-Moscow School on Matrix Methods and Applied Linear Algebra, International Conference on Computer Graphics and Vision (GraphiCon), Moscow Summer Academy on Economic Growth and Governance of Natural Resources, etc. The Faculty is involved in active cooperation with the leading international IT companies: Microsoft, Intel, IBM, Embarcadero, SAP AG, Cisco Systems, NVIDIA, Samsung, MSC Software GmbH, and others. A number of vendor certified courses are given for teachers and students at the CMC MSU Training Center.

CMC MSU represents both the long-time traditions of Lomonosov Moscow State University with its maturity and experience and the hopes of the newer generation with its vision toward the Future. The high qualification of CMC MSU staff and the combination of deep theoretical and practical experience in projects and grants elaboration ensure that CMC MSU graduates are welcome at the world IT corporations and research centers, Universities, banks, insurance and investment companies, etc.
