Master of Electronic Information System Engineering
The main study and research object for the Master of Science in Informatics Engineering programme consists of - real time integrated information systems designed for collection, transfer, control, and visualisation of different information uaing controllers, digital Automatic Control Systems or intermediate data processing devices. Masters acquire skills and knowledge required for design and implementaiton of specific integrated technical information systems and the needed software, create graphical user interfaces and intergrate them into the computing systems working in the internet. Technical Information System Engineering Master's programme in conjunction with Software System Engineering is aimed at preparing high quality information system engineers, who are able to solve complex theoretical and practical problems independently and creatively; execute and lead IT engineering and scientific research work efficiently and competently.
Graduates can either pursue their PhD studies at any other university or work in various telecommunication and IT service companies, scientific research organizations or medical diagnostic centers.
Graduates have specific knowledge and skills from the chosen field:
Technical Information System Engineers are able to create virtual IT system models, design, verify, test their prototypes and introduce them to the the industry;
Graduates from Biomedical Engineering Information Systems are able to design, test and verify hardware tools and software products for disease diagnostics and introduce them to the health system organizations.

Examination regulations, assessment and grading
The University applies cumulative grading in order to ensure objective evaluation, active students’ participation during the semester and their ability to apply theoretical knowledge in practice. Cumulative grading final evaluation consists of interim course assignments (test, individual work, paper, laboratory work defence, and etc.) and final exam grades. If the student fails the interim course assignments and does not make to transition grade−minimal grade of determined interim course assessments−he is not allowed to take the final exam. Each study programme is completed by defending final thesis (project) and (or) taking final exams.
Undergraduate and master student’s knowledge, skills and abilities, indicated in the study programme description, are examined and evaluated during the public defence of his Final thesis. Final thesis by its nature can be scientific research or scientific-applied. Final thesis is analytical work based on independent scientific or applied research. A Bachelor’s thesis comprises 12 credits; Master’s thesis comprises 30 credits in the study programme of 120 credits or 24 credits in the study programme of 90 credits. Final thesis and its defence is to demonstrate student’s creativity and the ability to critically evaluate theoretical and practical innovations, as well as others’ previously carried out researches and their results; to indicate student’s knowledge in social and commercial environment, legislation, and financial capacity; to show information sourcing and its qualified analysis skills, computational methods and specialized software and general-purpose information technologies using skills, as well as the ability to clearly and correctly orally or in written present their research results and (or) product designed to different audiences.
