What will you learn?

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.

Management - the driving force of success.

Practical training

In the Software Systems and Services Management study programme, students complete a compulsory internship of 10 weeks/400 hours within one semester. The student's activities during the internship must correspond to the so-called T-shaped focus, where in-depth knowledge and experience in computer science are required, as well as a broad overview and basic skills in other fields (economics, management, law, etc.). Information on internships can be found in the Course Catalogue, in the study materials of the course or on the website.
