Computer Systems and Networks

M.Sc. Computer Science  

Specialisation: Computer Systems and Networks  

Faculty of Electronics and Information Technology  

Duration: 2 years  

Starts in: October & February  

The programme requires coursework in one specialisation and thesis preparation. Each student works with a supervisor from the faculty. The professor helps the student plan an academic coursework programme compatible with the degree requirements and the student’s educational objectives. The advisor also supervises the research and the thesis preparation. The thesis is based on a research project that partly involves the original material.  

Graduates from the Computer Systems and Networks specialisation will be equipped with comprehensive qualifications in the area of computer science basics, including basic knowledge of information processing and algorithms and system modelling. They are proficient in computer programming and skilful in using computer tools. They are self-reliant in scheduling, implementing and verifying complex computer projects. Their knowledge facilitates quick adaptation to the rapidly changing environment.
