Software Engineering

follow-up master's program (Czech) with specializations

Software systems are in an increasing way supporting most activities of human endeavour, which puts emphasis on the quality of their design, development, testing, deployment and operations. Software engineering integrates skills, techniques and tools for systematic support of these activities, with emphasis on guaranteed quality of the software product. The goal of the study programme is to build the competencies of the students related to software engineering, including their understanding of deeper relations necessary when developing large-scale software systems, where each individual design decision critically impacts the quality and vitality of the final system or service. An integral part of the education is the practical training in terms of software development, as well as working within a software team, including experience with team-leading. These skills are necessary for meeting the expectations of the relevant job positions in industry. The practical skills will be acquired mainly within internships in industry, but also when leading projects of bachelor students at the faculty. Given that the degree program is accredited in a professional profile and the content of the curriculum does not include the full scope of compulsory practice, it is assumed that the student enters the degree program in a situation where he completed part of compulsory practice at the bachelor's degree. If this is not the case, he/she is obliged to complete this part of the compulsory practice beyond the scope of the study plan.

The graduates of this study programme are equipped for the position of a senior software developer (in case of the Design and development of software systems) and a deployment (or DevOps) engineer (in case of the Deployment and operations of software systems), including leading roles within software development teams.
