The Master’s program in Computer Science is a broad program with the opportunity to study several courses in the computer science field. The program requires significant knowledge in programming. If you are interested in a specific area, you have the opportunity to profile and deepen your knowledge in this field through elective courses.

The Master’s Program in Computer Science has three main directions: IT security, Intelligent Systems, and Distributed and Parallel Systems.

You will study courses that prepare you for future elective courses within the respective direction during the first semester. Mandatory courses in the first semester are artificial intelligence, Unix programming, cloud computing, and network security. In these courses, the practical assignments are based on programming, i.e., you will be required to program your solutions.

The focus of the IT security area includes courses in safe software development, software security, and analysis of malicious software. In parallel and distributed systems, we work a lot with performance issues, parallel programming, virtualization, and cloud-based systems. Within the field of intelligent systems, you will learn techniques for developing computer-based functionals capable of complex processing and data analysis. This field includes courses in machine learning, simulation, and decision support.

During the latter part of the program, you will associate with different areas of application and current research projects. In some courses, you are encouraged to work with current challenges in pattern recognition, image processing, game development, different decision support systems for resource planning in the energy sector, healthcare and transport sectors.
