Masaryk University Faculty of Informatics


The Faculty of Informatics at Masaryk University was established in 1994 and is the very first specialized faculty of its kind in the Czech Republic. Its establishment followed decades of experience built in the area of Mathematical Informatics at the Faculty of Science, and with significant involvement from prominent specialists in the field of informatics at both national and international levels.

Masaryk University recognized the importance of informatics and interdisciplinary informatics applications, the need to offer quality education aimed at understanding this field, and the practical application of informatics knowledge. The achievements of the faculty and its graduates are testament not only to the success of the faculty but also to the university as a whole.

From a modest beginning of twenty academic staff and less than four hundred students, the faculty has grown rapidly. Today, with more than 2,200 students, the faculty offers a wide range of study programmes at Bachelor, Master and Doctoral level. Bachelor study provides first level of high school education in computer science, Master study offers second level of high school education in three basic study programmes (study of information sciences, applied informatics and inter-faculty studies of computer science for teachers in combination with other field of study) with wide range of fields of study. All programmes can be studied full-time; doctoral programme is also a combined programme.

A high standard of teaching is combined with in depth scientific research. Academic and research staff have achieved significant successes internationally in many areas of informatics, such as Quantum Informatics, Concurrent and Distributed Computing, Database Systems, Computer Graphics and Image Processing, Computer Networks and Distributed Systems, Computer and Communication Security, Machine Learning, Data Mining and Natural Language Processing.

Master’s Degree in Embedded Systems

Campus Full time 4 semesters September 2018 Czech Republic Brno

This is a full-time Master's programme taught in the Department of Information Technologies at the Faculty of Informatics. Department of Information Technologies deals with technological aspects of Informatics, problems of development and operations of information processing systems, user interfaces, scientific and technical computing, and Artificial Intelligence. Its standard duration is two years. [+]

The Embedded Systems study program is combinations of hardware and software whose purpose is to control a device, a processor a larger system. This study program prepares students with a comprehensive understanding of the hardware and software technologies used in embedded systems. The program will strive to seek a balance between the software and hardware aspects of embedded systems, focusing on dependable systems for embedded control application. Our laboratory (Design and Architecture of Digital Systems Laboratory) is outfitted with the SW, HW, and equipment used to develop digital systems. This provides students with the opportunity to learn how electronic systems are designed, including the use of development tools and resources. They gain knowledge specific to working with programmable structures. Laboratory activities provide a balanced grounding in theory, along with practical skills used in the design, implementation, analysis, testing, and operation of embedded systems. Integral to the student’s education is experience working on a project with a small team. The project explores experimental solutions and prototypes for practical problems of interest that are prompted by the faculty’s research or from collaborative activities with potential future employers. Learning Outcomes The program graduates with the specialization Embedded Systems will: design, implement, analyze, test and operate of embedded systems based on FPGA, one chips microcomputers and DSP understand of the hardware and software technologies used in embedded systems be able to understand of the parallel and distributed systems, computer networks, and cryptography within this study to cooperate with future potential employer to gain knowledge...
