The Department's lecturers participate in scientific and technical conferences, including foreign ones.

The Department's staff successfully works on national fundamental research programs.

New algorithms for solving problems of network optimization were integrated in training. The developed methods and new formulas are employed for solving problems in thermal conductivity theory and elasticity and thermal elasticity theory, as well as for the matters of training at the BNTU and BSU. Research results obtained in the course of the National Scientific and Technical Program "Machine Building" are introduced into the work of Minsk Tractor Works as calculation methods, new engineering solutions, and recommendations. They are also used in construction of promising models of tractors "Belarus".

Modern computer math programs (Mathematica, Maple, Mathcad) are used in both research and teaching.

The Department's staff participates in organization and realization of innovative programs and projects: "Energy Safety", "Machine building", subprogram "Tractors", "Mathematical models. Construction of regulators for algebra-differential systems"; "Research of Network Optimization Models and Development of Algorithms for Solving the Tasks of Digital and Multi-Objective Graph Optimization".

The research results are integrated in the solution of different types of mathematical tasks in power engineering, as well as planning and management in economy. Models and algorithms for traffic optimization tasks were developed; approximate solutions for thermal conductivity task were obtained. At the same time, the Department's scientific work was integrated in teaching courses linked with the use of mathematical methods and modeling.

For many years, the Department has been staying in touch with colleagues from neighboring and far foreign countries. The Department established productive partnerships in the field of scientific information exchange and research coordination with Graz University of Technology (Austria) and Maryland University (USA). Research results were reflected in co-authored publications with Professor R.E. Bukart (Austria).

The Department's staff trained at TU Graz and visited Maryland University for giving lectures about some aspects of combinatory optimization (Head of the Department A.D. Korznikov).

The Department's employees participate in university life, discuss the role of Maths in professional training of engineers, organize and hold student math competitions. They also supervise student research work, and its results are usually reported at student conferences.

The Department's staff constantly upgrades professional competence, participates in different methodical unions, research workshops, and teaches in the top universities of Belarus. In accordance with modern achievements in mathematic sciences, development of computer technology, new work programs and teaching methods are being developed and modernized.
