Software Systems and Services Management (Eng.)
The study program develops unique competence profile of the student based on the intersection of multiple areas of knowledge that are relevant for managing the development of software systems and services, as well as cybersecurity management. A specific feature is a focus on strategic and operational management related to the targeting, design, implementation, and operation of software systems and services within the context of organizations and different types with a possible focus on their safe operation or IT services. In addition to developing basic theoretical and technological knowledge and practical developmental skills acquired in the bachelor's study, the content of the follow-up study is extended by other dimensions such as theories and practices of team, project and process management, communication, soft skills and knowledge essential to functioning in economic relations - the basics of marketing, law and others, which especially (but not only) concerns the specialization of service development. The cybersecurity study takes into account aspects of overlapping computer data processing outside of tightly defined system perimeters (eg impacting on critical infrastructure), thus enabling a specific multidisciplinary overlap of technical, social and legal aspects in this area.
The graduates find employment in companies and organizations of different sizes and orientation, but they also get the motivation and the possibility of basic preparation for their own innovative business. The strong competitive advantage of the program graduates is the ability to solve complex management-related problems of the development of systems and services for which they can use the acquired skills by the study. Their potential is predestined to hold managerial positions, such as the Chief Information Officer (CIO), project manager, and risk manager. Graduates of the cybersecurity management specialization will find application primarily in companies and institutions that need specialists able to work with relevant coordinating institutions and ensure the management of cybersecurity processes. These are positions as a cybersecurity manager and Chief Information Security Officer (CISO).

In the Study Catalogue you will find the lists of compulsory and optional subjects and the recommended course of study.
Obligatory part of the study plan is about 600 hours of internship to enable students to gain the necessary practical experience.
Specializations are study plans that provide conditions for completion, such as compulsory subjects.
The specialization takes into account the aspects of computer data processing beyond the well-defined system perimeters (e.g., critical infrastructure impact), reflected in the area of cyber-security and allowing a specific multi-disciplinary overlap of both technical and social and legal aspects of cyber-security.
The specialization follows the current large shift from the traditional paradigm of IT design to IT as a service and from product-oriented economy to service-oriented one. Problems and tasks in IT are becoming more complex and the knowledge of IT technology is not sufficient for solving them. A multidisciplinary view is the core of this specialization. Students will gain not only sound IT knowledge (programming, databases, computer security, networks, etc.), but also the skills necessary to understand problems in their complexity (marketing, management, finance or law) as well as necessary communication competencies.
The specialization focuses on software engineering, i.e., to acquire the knowledge and skills needed at all stages of development, management and maintenance of information, and other types of large software systems. The specialization emphasizes the ability to analyze and specify system requirements, system design, and implementation and deployment.
