Computer Systems – Field of study catalogue MU
Computer Systems study programme embraces both the theory and the practice of designing programmable systems with topics ranging from advanced programming concepts to the design of software systems. This study programme provides a solid theoretical basis as well as the skills needed in order to develop complex systems, according to the most advanced state of the art, and prepares students for careers in the high-tech software industry.
After successfully completing his/her studies the graduate is able to:
- design complex software application systems
- develop middleware systems oriented on distributed and transaction oriented processing
- interpret documentation of complex software application systems
- illustrate the architecture of designed and developed software application systems
- evaluate performance and security properties of complex software application systems
Graduates are able to work as designers and integrators of computer and software systems, system programmers and/or managers responsible for information technologies.
Standard duration of studies is four semesters. In order to be admitted to take the final state examination, students must acquire in total 120 ECTS credits for required, selective and elective courses. Required subjects constitute the basis of the disciplines. Students choose the selective courses according to their interests and intended professional specialisation. During the course of their studies, students should follow the course catalogue for their year of matriculation. The catalogue shows a recommended course of study including suggestions for selective courses. Students can access the course catalogue at the Office for Studies or through the faculty website: https://www.fi.muni.cz/katalog/.
The final state examination consists of a diploma thesis defence and an oral exam aimed at checking the field-related knowledge of the students. There is no written preparation to the exam and the student answers two to three questions asked by the examination committee. The final state examination typically takes about sixty minutes, half of which is taken by the thesis defence and half by the oral exam.
More information about the final state exam and the questions can be found at the faculty website: https://www.fi.muni.cz/studies/szz_mgr/.
After the completion of the Master’s studies, students may choose to continue their studies in any Doctoral degree programme at Faculty of Informatics (after satisfying the admission requirements).
