The programs have been offered to Czech students for years with great success. Now they are open to international students, too.

Whom are we looking for?

Motivated, diligent and gifted young people from all over the world who dare to think and have an interest in computer science and mathematics.

Curriculum

Bachelor’s Degree Program in Computer Science

The Bachelor of General Computer Science study program is intended for students who would like to learn the lasting foundations of computer science and to become proficient in its methods and approaches. A soundly built theoretical base is invaluable for working with applications and software development, and is a necessity for further study and research in computer science. The bachelor study program usually takes three years and ends with a state final exam, after the successful completion of which the student is awarded the title of bachelor. The degree awarded is accredited by the Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sports of the Czech Republic and is internationally recognized. The language of instruction is English.

Master’s Degree Programs

In our Master’s programs, students are given a broad overview of their field, helping them to think independently, to distinguish between important and marginal problems, and to accommodate quickly to novel technologies. The focus is on understanding the core principles of how and why things work and on the application of these principles within modern technologies. The strong theoretical basis of the Master’s study program gives our graduates a competitive advantage in a dynamically evolving world where today’s technologies are often obsolete tomorrow.

Studies usually take two years and finish with a state final exam and Master’s thesis defense. After successful completion the student is awarded the title of a Master of Science.
