|Length of studies||2 years|
The graduate will find application in various fields, such as the development of graphics applications, simulators, computer games, applications for multimedia processing and analysis, visualization of data, virtual and enhanced reality or creation of the professional-level graphic design. For example, a graduate may be an analyst, graphic designer, application programmer, research or development team eader. The acquired theoretical knowledge and practical skills allow them to thoroughly understand the problems solved and will make it possible in practice to use a wide range of modern technologies - from common mobile devices to dedicated systems with high computing power.

In the Study Catalogue you will find the lists of compulsory and optional subjects and the recommended course of study.
Internship is not an obligatory part of the study program. Nevertheless, in Computer Games Development specialization, some practical training is expected.
Specializations are study plans that provide conditions for completion, such as compulsory subjects.
Computer Games Development
Computer Games Development specialization gives students a comprehensive insight into how to create graphics aspects of contemporary multimedia entertainment software. Students will become acquainted with modern modelling, imaging and animation techniques, not only in the context of classic 2D and 3D imaging but also in the context of virtual or augmented reality.
Computer Graphics and Visualization
Computer Graphics and Visualization specialization offers a set of courses about basic principles, as well as the latest achievements in computer graphics and data visualization. These are accompanied by courses providing the students with the necessary basic background in informatics. We are particularly focusing on the applicability of the presented topics and their utilization in other disciplines and research areas. Students will learn about basic principles and algorithms, forming the building blocks of final visual outputs. These can be, for example, in a form of real-time rendering or large scenes or visualization design of complex multidimensional datasets. In seminars and projects, students will enrich this knowledge by implementational tasks on selected topics.
Graphic Design specialization is not available in English.
Graphic Design specialization offers the study of graphic design and related disciplines in cooperation with the Graphic Design and Multimedia Studio (AGD+M). The studio focuses primarily on digital media, which nowadays replaces most of the printed forms. In terms of mastering high-quality graphic design, this is an identical problem, but digital media opens up new opportunities in communicating with the consumer. For these media, concurrent informatic education of students is necessary and is developed in the course of this specialization. Students work on topics such as game making, interactive information graphics, creating interactive media applications, generative programming, animation, video, 3D digital modelling and 3D printing, e-publishing, web-design, font creation, and more.
Image Processing and Analysis
Image Processing and Analysis specialization provides a comprehensive view of getting and processing image information, starting with simple image editing using point transformations or linear filters, and ending with sophisticated tools such as mathematical morphology or deformable models. Graduates will find their place in the development and deployment of imaging systems in a variety of fields, for example in medicine, biology, meteorological and geographic data processing, biometric applications, etc.
