In 1961 the ideas of a fashionable western science of that time – cybernetics – started to penetrate into KhNAHU. The new Department was organized that had a laboratory equipped with several stands for automatic devices at its disposal. Later other laboratories were added equipped with digital electronic computers "Promin" and later "Nairi-2". Production of analog modeling units for computer engineering began.

Presently the staff of the Department regularly makes reports at national and international meetings, conferences and symposia on machine dynamics, modeling, automated electric drive, management science, etc.
