Below are presented in detail the modules of the second year of the school of Computer Science:
Personalised Skills Development
Students will analyse their personal skills development needs, starting with a test of existing skills and then moving on to a selection of possible opportunities so that they can tailor their personal development to their needs.
Software Enterprise Project
Students will have the opportunity to prepare for internships and job opportunities in computer science and information technology. During the program, students will work in groups on creating a real product.
Intermediate Software Development
Students will study the basic concepts associated with simple classes and objects and cover a range of more sophisticated object-oriented ideas, such as "heredity" and "polymorphism". During the program, students will be immersed in research and assimilation of information, in the interpretation of the specifications of a problem and in the determination of the appropriate solution, in written communication through the production of documentation and design reports, and in technical ability and the use of appropriate software.
Advanced Software Development
Students will explore in-depth issues related to modern software development, including the application of standard industrial methods in the design, development and testing of complex systems.
Database Systems Development
Students will learn to design, develop, and manage database systems for organizations. During this program, students will focus on understanding the common theory of relational databases, analysis, design, development, and management processes.
Internet of Things
Students will acquire the specialized skills needed to develop applications for IoT devices in real-world, including the use of robotics and sensors. They will also focus on programming, network connectivity, configuring and deploying IoT devices in simulated and practical environments.
Below are presented in detail the modules of the third year of the School of Computer Science.
Students will undertake an important individual project that demonstrates the range of skills acquired during their curriculum. The dissertation should include the part of research, development and the final individual project.
Students will explore TN techniques and a detailed understanding of the application of certain critical approaches so that they can approach the piece of artificial intelligence in the job market and in research.
Advanced Data Technologies
Students will have the opportunity to get in touch with the latest developments in technology, as the content of this program is updated every year to reflect current trends in database development. Topics may include enhanced data models for advanced applications, large databases related to performance and security issues, advanced database applications, database architecture issues, data analysis tools, and more.
