Specializations are study plans that provide conditions for completion, such as compulsory subjects.
The specialization provides specific knowledge for working with programmable structures expanding on parallel and distributed systems, computer networks and cryptography. The course emphasizes the equilibrium of the courses providing the theoretical background and practical skills courses in which students are involved 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 of interesting problems connected with the solution of practical problems resulting from the research and development activities of the faculty.
Graduate specialization will be ready to propose solutions to practical problems with the use of computer hardware, creatively modify hardware systems and deploy them.
Specialization focuses on the areas of 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 range of tasks that are critical to ensuring the security of IT-specific profiles (eg towards cryptography, technological aspects, or security management). Studying beyond the common background and specialization is left to the student's choice.
Graduates of specialization will be employed in companies developing or delivering systems that take account of safety requirements, but also in the advanced management and operation of such systems.
Specialization is focused on acquiring advanced knowledge of architectures, principles of operations and principles of computer network operation. The field is conceived to satisfy both those interested in practically oriented advanced information and knowledge in the area of computer networks and their applications, as well as those interested in deeper acquaintance with the theoretical basics of the field and the study of computer networks as a special case of distributed systems. In addition to knowledge of computer networks, the student acquires knowledge of security, principles of working with multimedia data, basic knowledge of parallel systems and necessary theoretical background.
Graduate specialization will be able to act as a designer of large networks, head of the computer networks department or project manager, or as a separate expert on computer network applications or their security.
Specialization focuses the graduate on the knowledge and skills needed at all stages of development and modification of large software systems, especially information systems. Emphasis is placed on the knowledge needed for the design and development of systems with the use of modern software technologies.
Graduate specialization will be able to play different roles in IT departments involved in the development and operation of information systems and in the use of IT for the activities of organizations.
