Further Education Possibilities The undergraduate programme in Computer Science provides the students with the appropriate knowledge and tools for further master degree studies and/or for their professional activity in IT, education, administration, industry or finance.
Description of Study Labor market demands highly qualified computer science professionals. Our programme offers a coherent approach by combining theoretical knowledge with modern technologies and practical work. The curricula is build using the paradigm “scientist-practitioner”, being inspired from other European computing science programmes, thus ensuring the compatibility of studies in the European Higher Education Area.
Purposes of the Programme The purposes of the programme are the following

  • to teach fundamental concepts of computer science and mathematics
  • to teach problem-solving methods and techniques
  • to teach how to use and develop AI concepts and methods
  • to give students the appropriate knowledge and skills related to represent, analyse and manipulate large volumes of data
  • to teach students new scientific and didactic approaches
  • to give students the appropriate motivation and abilities related to team work, professional communication and development
