The objective is to train Computer Scientists with a professional knowledge based on a solid theoretical background knowledge. They have the skills to take part in software development, in developing information systems and system management in various areas. Computer Scientists often acts as mediators between the customers of information systems and the producers. In this way, the job of a Computer Scientist synthesises the constructive activity of engineers with the general problem-solving attitude of mathematicians while participating in teams of large-scale projects.
The program provides students with a broad education in Computer Science and Software Engineering in combination with specialised work in computer and information processing techniques, programming languages, data structures, information retrieval, operating systems, compiler design etc. Students learn the theory as well as the methodologies and techniques in the development and implementation of computer systems. The more practical programming courses are aided by several courses in pure and applied mathematics and theoretical computer science courses throughout the curriculum.
Strength of program
The high standard of training is guaranteed by the highly qualified academic staff. Teaching is supported by modern infrastructure and well equipped computer labs (artificial intelligence, databases, and robotics). The library of the Faculty contains several thousand volumes. The students of higher years and PhD students help the first year students in a mentor system to overcome their first challenges at the university.
In addition to the high level of theoretical training, the Faculty’s relationship with the business community, the joint research and development projects offer up-to-date practical knowledge and experience to the students. The Faculty has concluded bilateral agreements with numerous universities in the world, which allows students to study one or two semesters or participate in research projects at a partner institution.
Extracurricular undergraduate research activities of the students are supported and supervised by leading scientists of the Faculty. These students present their findings at a conference organised by the Faculty every year.
Workshops are also organised with international partners.
