Specializations are study plans that set out the conditions for graduation, such as compulsory subjects.

Hardware systems

The specialization provides specific knowledge for working with programmable structures extending to parallel and distributed systems, computer networks and cryptography. The course emphasizes the balance of courses providing the necessary theoretical basis and courses focused on practical skills, in which students participate in the design, implementation, analysis, testing and operation of embedded systems. An integral part of the study is also work on a project with a small team focused on experimental and prototype solutions to interesting problems associated with solving practical problems arising from the research and development activities of the faculty.

The graduate of the specialization will be ready to propose solutions to practical problems using computer hardware, creatively modify hardware systems and deploy them.

Information security

The specialization focuses on the security of computer systems and networks, cryptography and their applications. The aim is to prepare such a graduate who will be able to work in a number of tasks that are crucial for ensuring the security of IT-specific profiles (eg towards cryptography, technological aspects or security management). Study beyond the common ground and specialization is left to the student's choice.

Graduates of the specialization will find employment in companies developing or supplying systems that take into account security requirements, but also in the advanced management and operation of such systems.

Computer networks and communications

The specialization is focused on gaining advanced knowledge of architectures, principles of operations and principles of computer network operation. The field is designed to satisfy both those interested in practically oriented advanced information and knowledge in the field of computer networks and their applications, as well as those interested in a deeper acquaintance with the theoretical foundations of the field and the study of computer networks as a special case of distributed systems. In addition to knowledge in the field of computer networks, the student will gain knowledge of security, principles of working with multimedia data, basic knowledge in the field of parallel systems and the necessary theoretical background.

The graduate of the specialization will be able to work as a designer of large networks, the head of computer network departments or project managers, or as an independent expert in computer network applications or their security.

Software systems

The specialization orients the graduate to the knowledge and skills needed in all stages of development and modification of large-scale software systems, especially information systems. Emphasis is placed on the knowledge needed for the design and development of systems with modern software technologies.

The graduate of the specialization will be able to play various roles in IT departments involved in the development and operation of information systems and in the use of IT for the activities of organizations.

Students can participate in research and development in the LaSArIS laboratory
