Description of the field of study:

For who is Computer Science?

Computer Science is for people who are not afraid of challenges and are willing to put in a lot of effort during their studies to achieve great opportunities and attractive employment after graduation. If you are ambitious, fierce, eager to learn, have a scientific mind and are passionate about mathematics and technology – this is the right degree for you. Completing Computer Science will give you a guaranteed chance for career development in required and desired professions, as specialists in this field are in demand on the labour market. If you pass mathematics, physics or computer science in high school, you are not afraid of challenges and you are willing to face hard work by acquiring theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of computer science, feel free to apply for our course.


Graduates of public and private universities (full-time and part-time studies) with a 1st-degree engineering diploma (they have an engineering diploma) may apply for second-cycle studies in the field of Computer Science.

The remaining requirements are specified in the expected competencies of the candidate applying for admission to second-cycle studies in the field of Computer Science.

Second-cycle studies broaden your knowledge and develop skills in the field of creating applications and network solutions, with particular emphasis on the security aspects of IT systems.


Software development techniques

You will broaden your knowledge and skills in the field of creating solutions for IT and mobile systems and their security engineering, parallel and distributed computing methods as well as modelling and IT project management languages. You will learn how to design and develop web applications (web, mobile and cloud platforms) and learn the techniques of administering these applications. The studies will prepare you to work in companies that design and implement the most modern systems related to IT technologies.


You will learn how to effectively ensure security of network systems, internet applications, computer systems, and mobile applications. You will acquire skills related to various forms of programming for the Internet and designing information systems.
