Computer Systems, Communication and Security (eng)

Design, build and run a secure computer system!

What will you learn?

Programme "Computer systems, communications and security" aims to lead its graduate to understanding of architectures, principles, design methods and operations of secure computer systems, respecting both hardware and software aspects, including network communications. The graduate will also gain deeper knowledge in of the chose specializations of the programme. Specialization "Hardware systems" will lead to acquiring practical skills for design, implementation, analysis, testing and operations of embedded systems. Specialization "Software systems" will lead the graduate to knowledge and skills necessary in all stages of development and changes in extensive software systems, especially information systems. Emphasis is set on knowledge necessary at the design and development of systems with on deployed modern software technologies. Specialization "Information security" will prepare the graduate to work in development and management of systems supporting security operations, with the ability to thoughtfully select and apply methods supporting particular security functionality in computer systems. Specialization "Computer networks and communications" targets architectures, principles of operations of computer networks and applications, work with multimedia data, basic knowledge in the area of parallel systems.
