Relevant research groups
- Center for Research on Cryptography and Security (CRoCS)
- Laboratory of Quantum Information Processing and Cryptography (LQIPC)
- Laboratory of Design and Architecture of Digital Systems (EmLab)
- Laboratory of Advanced Network Technologies (SITOLA)
- Laboratory of Software Architectures and Information Systems (Lasaris)

Specializations are curricula that set the conditions for completion, such as compulsory subjects.
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 foundation and practical skills courses in which students participate in the design, implementation, analysis, testing and operation of embedded systems. An integral part of the study is also working 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 will be ready to propose solutions to practical problems using computer hardware, creatively modify hardware systems and deploy them.
Specialization focuses on the security of computer systems and networks, cryptography and their applications. The aim is to prepare a graduate who will be able to work in a number of tasks that are critical to ensuring the security of IT-specific profiles (eg towards cryptography, technological aspects, or security management). Study beyond the common foundation and specialization is left to the student's choice.
Graduates of the specialization will find employment in companies developing or supplying systems respecting security requirements, but also in advanced administration and operation of such systems.

Graduate Michal Balážia received the prestigious Joseph Fourier Award for the development of the biometric system.
The specialization is aimed at gaining advanced knowledge of architectures, principles of operations and principles of computer network operation. The course 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 deeper understanding of the theoretical foundations of the field and studying computer networks as a special case of distributed systems. In addition to computer networking knowledge, the student will acquire security knowledge, principles of working with multimedia data, basic knowledge of parallel systems and the necessary theoretical background.
The graduate of the specialization will be able to work as a designer of large networks, head of the computer network department or project manager, or as an independent expert on computer network applications or their security.
The specialization focuses the graduate on the knowledge and skills needed in all stages of development and modification of large software systems, especially information systems. Emphasis is placed on the knowledge necessary for the design and development of systems using modern software technologies.
The graduate will be able to hold 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.
