This study program provides students with extensive knowledge and helps them understand how software can be controlled on one or more computers, taking into account reliability, networking and operating systems. This is a study program that will help students acquire good programming skills.

The courses concentrate on practical and applicable content such as programming, computer architecture, computer networks, operating systems, software engineering, and application programs. The studies last three years, and the study scope is 180 ECTS.

The program will study the basic communication models, protocols and their basic architecture, ways to transfer data, portable media and resources, data encoding, data communication mediators, data link control, technology, architecture and systems … The program is mastering the theoretical foundations for the operation of computer networks, as well as acquiring practical skills for managing them.

Within the three-year studies, 24 courses are covered, which students need to pass. Each semester has 2 required and 4 elective courses. Of the possible 4 elective courses, students choose only 2 – and this is chosen between the first and second elective courses, i.e. between the third and fourth, and so on.
