While being a Ph.D. student he worked at Physicomechanical Institute of the Academy of Sciences, where he prepared his thesis. Since 1967 he has been working at the Lviv Polytechnic National University. In 1983 in Leningrad Electro-Technical Institute he defended his Sc.D. thesis on CAD of electric devices. In 1990 he initiated the formation of the first in Western Ukraine Software Department, which he had headed till 2001. During the first five years of his supervision the Department was certified for IV level of accreditation, provided successful training of bachelors, masters and Ph.D. students.

From 2000 to 2001 he conducted research at Harvard University as a prizewinner of The Fullbright Scholar Program sponsored by the US government.

Roman Bazylevych initiated widespread development of scientific research in the field of CS in Lviv Polytechnic. In the early 70s he created the first in our University research group on CAD, where many highly qualified professional developers of complex software systems were trained. He created his own scientific school in the field of CAD and Mathematical Modeling. He initiated and headed the Informatics and Cybernetics Commission at Shevchenko Scientific Society since its revival, led five academic conferences on localization of Computers in Ukraine that favored the national and cultural renaissance of Ukraine. In 1979 he organized the first and several subsequent conferences on CAD and the first regional conference on modern problems in CS in February 2000. He initiated and headed Lviv Center of the Institute of Electrical Engineers (Great Britain) in 1996 and the subsidiary of the American Computer Association (ACA) in 1999.

In 1995 he initiated and headed the Specialized Academic Board for the defense of theses on Mathematical Modeling and Mathematical and Program Support of Computer Engineering. Under his supervision sixty academic research projects were carried out, including those on demand of Science and Technology Committee, Ministries of Education and Defense of Ukraine. In 2003 he became the INTEL scientific competition prizewinner. Since 2005 he has supervised the French-Ukrainian research program Dnipro.

He presented his scientific reports in many leading universities of the world including USA, France, India, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Germany, Russia, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Armenia, Georgia, and Uzbekistan.
