Theoretical informatics

The study of theoretical computer science is focused on a deeper understanding of the basic principles on which contemporary information technologies are based, including non-classical computer systems such as neural networks or quantum computers. In addition to the active acquisition of knowledge of a theoretical and technical nature, special emphasis is placed on the development of abstract thinking.

Students will learn advanced algorithmic procedures, gain insight into the principles of modern programming languages, learn about methods for analysis, testing and verification of code, and understand the possibilities and limitations of emerging computing devices that operate on different principles than classical computers. The acquired knowledge and skills will prepare students for expert analytical work, which may include independent research.

The candidate chooses one of the specializations Computational model algorithms, Formal verification and analysis of programs or Principles of programming languages.

Graduate profile

The graduate of the program is ready to work in companies focused on the design and development of software systems, especially in the positions of analyst, software architect or verifier. It can also be used in companies providing consultations and advice in the field of informatics. Solid mathematical foundations together with knowledge of non-trivial algorithmic procedures are a good prerequisite for work in the financial sector. The graduate can also make very good use of the acquired knowledge and skills in the follow-up doctoral study.
