Specializations are curricula that set conditions for completion, such as compulsory subjects.
Specialization provides specific knowledge to work with programmable structures extending to parallel and distributed systems, computer networks, and cryptography. The lessons emphasize the balance of courses providing the necessary theoretical background 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 work on a project with a small team focused on experimental and prototype solutions to interesting problems related to 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, to creatively modify and deploy hardware systems.
Specialization focuses on 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 variety of roles that are critical to ensuring the security of IT-specific profiles (eg, towards cryptography, technology aspects, or security management). Learning beyond the common base and specialization is left to the student's choice.
Specialists will find employment in companies developing or supplying systems that meet security requirements, but also in the advanced management and operation of such systems.

Graduate Michal Balážia received the prestigious Joseph Fourier Prize for developing a biometric system.
Specialization is focused on acquiring advanced knowledge of architectures, principles of operation and principles of operation of computer networks. The discipline is designed to satisfy both those interested in practically oriented advanced information and knowledge of computer networks and their applications, as well as those interested in deeper acquaintance with the theoretical foundations of the field and studying computer networks as a special case of distributed systems. In addition to knowledge of computer networks, the student will acquire knowledge of security, principles of working with multimedia data, basic knowledge of parallel systems and necessary theoretical background.
The graduate of the specialization will be able to work as a designer of large networks, head of computer networks or project managers, or as an independent expert on computer network applications or their security.
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 needed to design and develop systems with deployed modern software technologies.
The graduate of the specialization will be able to hold various roles in the IT departments involved in the development and operation of information systems and in the use of IT for organizations.
