Software Systems and Services Management (eng)

"Management - the driving force of success."

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.

Practical training

Obligatory part of the study plan is about 600 hours of practice to enable students to gain the necessary practical experience.
