Computer Engineering

Computer technology is part of just about everything that touches our lives from the cars we drive and devices we use for communication, to the movies we watch and the ways businesses and governments deal with us. Studying computer engineering will provide students with valuable knowledge about how to find efficient and innovative solutions to increasingly complex and challenging problems of computer systems. Computing jobs are among the highest paid and have the highest job satisfaction, a computing career having space for both collaborative work and individual effort.

The Master Course in Computer Engineering is a two year full-time English taught study programme, which provides students with advanced knowledge in computer engineering theory and practice, familiarizes them with the evolution of the current techniques, develop their research abilities and prepares them for successful careers as key contributors in computer development and research projects.

The study programme mixes advanced level courses in core areas of computer engineering: Cellular data networks, Advanced digital signal processing, Image processing and recognition, Smart sensor networks, with advanced electives which allow a choice of specialization from a variety of subjects: Evolvable hardware, Emerging systems, Advanced Artificial Intelligence. Directed research leads to a dissertation in the 4th semester.
