ECTS: 180 credits ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) - is an European system for translation and accumulation of points/results. This system was created for recording the academic work of students during an educational programme or course. One academic year corresponds to 60 ECTS points, which is about 1500-1800 study hours.
Admission to the first year of study:
passed the final examination; or
passed the vocational final examination and final examinations in subjects Mathematics,Computer Science or Information Technology, in so far the aforementioned subjects have already been taken within the framework of the vocational final examination, applicants must pass any other final examinations subject.
Admission may also be gained by an applicant having completed a comparable study abroad.
About the programme
The study programme introduces a close connection between the fields of Computer Science and Mathematics. It relies on a strong theoretical basis that serves as a prerequisite for the establishment of an effective computer science programme that places special emphasis on cultivating the interaction with practice by building on theory through both motivation and applicability of practical solutions. The interaction with practice is particularly brought to the forefront in the last pillar of courses – skills. The close interaction with Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science importantly contributes to the quality of the study programme by enhancing the understanding of both the basics of Computer Science and research topics arising from the newly emerging spheres in Computer Science.
The study programme closely combines the fields of Mathematics and Economics. In the following decade, major challenges in science will be posed in the area of integrating various scientific disciplines, where Mathematics (as a universal language of science) and Computer Science (as a field giving ground to ever more optimal exploitation of the richness of this language) may play a leading role. Therefore the study in the field of Mathematical Sciences should place particular emphasis on its use in other sciences and in concrete problems occurring in modern economy.
Competencies students are about to develop: the ability to describe a given situation with the correct use of mathematical and computing symbols and notations, to interpret their own understanding of computing concepts and principles, to use the algorithmic approach and solve a given problem by developing an algorithm, to deduce new logical conclusions from the information given, to upgrade problems to more complex problems and to integrate partial solutions through engineering.
Computer Science, as one of the fastest growing economic branches, provides graduates with countless employment opportunities. For many years, most computer/ information companies have been faced with the lack of quality personnel. The study ensures the acquisition of knowledge that is indispensable for work and promotion, opportunities for employment in the pedagogical and research field, e.g.: system administration (computer and other companies and institutions), programming (computer companies), information system design and development, education, etc.
