The Department of System Design was established in 2016 (Order of the Rector No 0-66 dated April 11, 2016). Professors of the department, since 2005, simultaneously with the launch of specialists training in the direction 6.050101 – “Computer Science” at the Faculty of Electronics, actively involved in the preparation of bachelors of this direction. Since 2009, the professors of the department together with lecturers of other departments have started the preparation of masters in the specialty 8.05010102 – “Information Technology Design”. Since 2012, the professors of the department have started training specialists and masters in the specialties 7.05010103 and 8.05010103 “System design”. Starting from 2016, in connection with the introduction of a new list of specialties, the department carries out the preparation of bachelors and masters in the specialty 122 – “Computer Science”, and from 2017 – bachelors from the specialty 126 – “Information systems and technologies”.

When developing new educational programs for student preparation, the faculty staff closely collaborates with IT industry specialists, in particular with Global Logic, Epam, SoftServe, N-iX, Vakoms and others. The main purpose of creating new educational programs for students of the department is to train specialists in information technology in accordance with the new requirements of the labor market. With the assistance of the Lviv IT Cluster on September, 2017, a new educational program for specialists in the field of Data Science was launched. Оn September, 2019, a new educational program for specialists in the field of Software Engineering was launched.

The department has engaged the design of complex software and hardware systems for solving the problems of collecting, intelligent processing and analysis of large volumes of the data in various fields of activity. The department develops automated and automatic systems for collecting, storing, reproducing, pre-processing and analyzing data. For the realization of these systems, the department investigates the technologies of relational (SQL-based), non-relational (NoSQL-based) and distributed (decentralized Blockchain-like systems, etc.) databases, the methods of the realization of high-performance parallel and distributed computations based on the computing clusters of classical and hybrid architecture, the use of the special hardware computing systems based on graphics processors (CUDA, OpenCL, etc.), and the development of applied software solutions in the fields of Data Processing and Visualization, Data Analysis, Business Intelligence, and Machine Learning.

The head of the department is R. Shuvar, who has been in this post since April 2015. He graduated from the Ivan Franko State University of Lviv in 1982 with a degree in Radiophysics and Electronics at the postgraduate studies at Ivan Franko State University of Lviv (1985-1988), and then worked as an assistant professor (1988-1994), and from 1994 since today he has been a associate professor of the University.  In 1989 he defended his thesis for a scientific degree of the candidate of physical and mathematical sciences, and in 1996 he received the academic title of associate professor. Since 2005, he is actively engaged in scientific and pedagogical work in the field of “Computer Science” and “Information Systems and Technologies”. He supervises the scientific work of graduate students and students.

The studying process at the department is provided by three doctors of physics and mathematics – professors V.Yuzevych (0,5 rates), B.Koman and O.Balytskyi, as well as candidates of physical and mathematical sciences – associate professors L.Demkiv, R.Shuvar, T.Nenchuk, R.Stakhira, candidate of techniical sciences – associate professor S.Shcherbak (0,5 rates), senior lecturer R.Kovtko, assistant professors V.Parubochyi and A.Prodyvus. The lecturers of the department have passed the profile, including a half-year internship in leading educational and research institutions of Ukraine.

To ensure the educational process at the department, educational laboratory of Information Technologies Designing (headed by V.Pysarevskyi) is created and functioning.

For the laboratory lessons on normative, specialization and selective disciplines, four specialized educational computer laboratories №№ 5, 8, 9 and 11 were created and functioning at the department.

The department performs topics:

Parallel algorithms for selection of informative elements of raster images

State registration number: 0116U001683. Scientific supervisor of the topic Shuvar R.Ya.

A number of methods of segmentation of high resolution raster images using spatial and spectral approaches have been developed. The research has been carried out on the advantages and disadvantages of selection and recognition of informative elements, in particular biometric data, physical objects, objects of the Earth remote sensing, using modern algorithmical methods of the properties allocation and machine learning. On the basis of the obtained data, research was carried out in the field of alignment of the luminosity on raster images in order to increase the accuracy of selection and recognition of elements, and also proposed a number of modifications of the SQI method for aligning the luminosity on raster images, the study of the possibility of using the proposed methods to improve the selection of the informative elements having the small size in comparison with the size of the raster image.
