Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology
Doctoral study programme “Computer Systems” is 4 years long and teaches doctors of engineering (information technology field, systems analysis, modelling and design sub-sector). Students acquire profound knowledge of corresponding theoretical courses: Conceptual Aspects of Object-Oriented Programming, Advanced Methods of Computer Systems Design, and Intelligent Computer Systems, as well as courses of specialization which are defined by supervisors of doctoral thesis. Theoretical courses are the basis for research in the chosen topic. Doctoral study programme includes mandatory courses (15 credit points), restricted electives (specialization) – 15 credit points, languages (6 credit points) and free electives (6 credit points), and scientific workshops where doctoral students work up their research skills by reporting about their obtained results, reviewing papers of their colleagues, and attending the defence procedure of doctoral thesis thus preparing themselves for defence of their own thesis. In their doctoral thesis research doctoral students concentrate on complex problem solving in computer systems with focus on development of information systems, large scale software systems and intelligent systems using advanced information technologies.
Study programme aim is to prepare professionals for independent scientific and pedagogical work at the university in the field of informatics and computer technology area of the systems analysis, modeling and design, as well as to provide knowledge and skills necessary to manage and implement technically complex projects.
