July 10, 2017 on the basis of the Faculty of Informatics and the Faculty of Applied Mathematics and Cybernetics of TSU, the Institute of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science (IPMC) was formed. The Faculty of Applied Mathematics as a structural subdivision of TSU was established on July 3, 1970. In the early 1980's it was renamed to the Faculty of Applied Mathematics and Cybernetics. In 1986 the Faculty of Informatics was formed as an educational and scientific complex "Informatics" on the basis of the Department of Programming and Informatics, the Department of Economic Cybernetics, the Laboratory of Computing Systems, and the Computing Center of TSU, in 1992 it was reorganized into the Informatics Department.

The staff of the Institute are 114 teachers, including 31 Professors and 55 associate professors.

Institute staff carry on active research. The main areas of research in the field of Big Data & Data Science are development of theoretical and technological fundamentals of artificial intelligence, big data preprocessing and analysis methods and models, machine learning and semantic data systems methods and models, pattern recognition and classification, technologies for automated detection and classification of ground and overwater objects using statistical and neural network algorithms.
