Bachelor in Informatics


Program Description

The program is built on a common theoretical basis consisting of 21 compulsory courses totaling 119 ECTS credits (total workload is 180 ECTS credits) to equip graduates with the knowledge and skills at all levels of ICT architectures. The structure of the program reflects the recommendations of ACM and IEEE CS, the world's most recognized authorities in the field of informatics degree programs. The program is divided into six branches, each of which is characterized by a group of six compulsory branch courses.

One of these branches - Web and Software Engineering, is internally divided into three specializations: Software Engineering, Web Engineering, and Computer Graphics.

Profiles of graduates from all branches of the program build on a common foundation of mathematics (analysis, algebra, logic, discrete mathematics, graph theory, probability, and statistics), theoretical computer science (algorithms, formal languages, and automata, complexity theory) and IT courses, covering all levels of architectures of ICT systems (digital and analog circuitry, processor architecture and hardware tools, operating systems, databases, computer networks, security, software engineering, and programming.
