About the Program

The curriculum is composed of two types of subjects:    

  • basic knowledge – obligatory for all students
  • specialised knowledge – related to specialisations chosen by students.

The first four semesters of the full-time programme  (and the first six of the part-time programme) are devoted to core instruction. At this stage, the student gains the fundamental knowledge required of a bachelor-level graduate in computer science. S/he is familiarised with issues such as basic database techniques, principles of software development and computer network development as well as applications of multimedia. Above all, the candidate learns to program in key languages such as Java or C++.  The curriculum also includes core mathematics, electronics, accounting, economics and law.

During the subsequent specialised instruction, students choose a major (area of specialisation) in which to further expand their knowledge and skills. Specialised classes are customised for each major; examples include programming in languages such as Prolog, ML, Assembler, C# or SQL. Furthermore, specialised instruction aims to build up the student’s team-working skills through, among others, implementation of specific projects.

Specialistions

Students choose the specialisation on the 4th semester (full-time programme) or on the 6th semester (part-time programme) are devoted to core instruction.

Specialised tuition focuses on gaining practical skills in working on a project in a team. The subject named Project simulates conditions of the future work environment. Other subjects expand on the areas of expertise necessary to become a specialist in the chosen field. Depending on the specialization students learn such programming languages as: Prolog, ML, As-sem¬bler, C#, SQL.
