The prehistory of the department reaches September 1963, when the Department of Electrical Engineering and Automation was established in the Ivano-Frankivsk branch of the Lviv Polytechnic Institute, headed by the senior teacher Yatsun Mikhail Andreevich. From the 1963/64 school year, work was done on organizing the educational process and creating the material and technical base to conduct training in the specialty 0634 – “Electrification and automation of mining work” – the founder of the specialty 7.050201 – 7.050201 – “Control Systems and Automation” and 0639 –“automation and complex mechanization of chemical-technological processes”. From September 30, 1963, to September 15, 1966, the department was headed by Ph.D., associate professor Aminadava Izrailevich Kaplan. Later, by June 1967, the duties of the head of the department l Yuri V. Grosh.
In June 1966, the department released the first engineers in the specialty 0634 – “Electrification and automation of mining operations”, and in December 1966 – in the specialty 0639 – “automation and complex mechanization of chemical-technological processes.”
In 1967, the Ivano-Frankivsk Institute of Oil and Gas (IFING) was established on the basis of the Ivano-Frankivsk branch of the Lviv Polytechnic Institute.
Since 1968, the department of electrical engineering and automation has been headed by Ph.D., associate professor Vinogradov Leonid Aleksandrovich.
06/23/1968 from the department of electrical engineering and automation stood out the department of automation of processes for the extraction and processing of oil and gas, the head of which remained Ph.D., Assoc. Vinogradov L.A.
At the end of 1969 from the Siberian Scientific Center of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR (Novosibirsk), Dr. Sc. Stamberger Heinrich Abramovich, along with his student, Ph.D. Dobrov E.E.
09/01/1970 by the order of the Rector of IFING for No. 48, the Department of Automation of Oil and Gas Extraction and Refining is divided into two departments: automation of production processes (head, Rector of IFING, Professor B. N. Lokotosh) and information-measuring equipment and electronics (ICT and PE), which was the ancestor of the current department. The first head of the department is appointed Dr.Sc. Stumberger A.
Throughout its existence, the department has developed in the educational and scientific areas, mastering the increasingly complex achievements of scientific and technological progress in the field of management in technical systems regarding the oil and gas industry of Ukraine.
The needs of the national economy and the requirements for training specialists in the field of management in technical systems regarding the oil and gas industry in Ukraine have led to the fact that the name of the department has changed several times.
So, in 1987, the department of IWT and PE was renamed into the department of automation and remote control (A and T)
In November 1995, the department of AIT was renamed to the department of automated management in technical and organizational systems.
In connection with the opening at the department of a new specialty “Computer systems and networks” in September 2001 the department was renamed the department “Computer technologies in control systems and automation”.
In March 2016, in connection with the licensing of the direction “Telecommunications” the department received the current name “Information and telecommunication technologies and systems (ITTS)”.
