Course objectives
Familiarization with the area and practical team project aimed at adopting the principles in one of the areas, which the course is specialized on in the particular semester.
In spring 2019, the course is specialized in the following areas:
1. Big Data analytics in practice -- the aim of this course's specialization is to introduce students to methods and tools for analyzing large data volumes (so-called Big Data), which will then be examined in the form of practical projects presented at the end of the semester.
2. Advanced Computer Networks -- the aim of this specialization is to introduce students to the area of computer networks and related technologies, research methodology, own research and presentation of results. The work is separated into two semesters, begin in the fall semester with lower network levels (physical infrastructure, construction of computer halls, basic protocols from level two = STP, 802.1Q,...), in spring semester work follows with protocols on L3, mostly routing protocols (OSPF, BGP). Sprig semester follows the fall.
  • Team project in one of the areas, which the course is specialized on in the particular semester: Big Data analytics, computer networks, grids or multimedia. Students can choose or are assigned a practical project (team-based, i.e. an assignment will be solved by a group of students). When solving the project, students will master the advanced understanding of a subject, acquire basic research methodology, will optionally perform the research and will present achieved results. The work progress will be evaluated on regular weekly or two-weekly seminars, where students will receive the necessary feedback on their undertakings.
  • The last seminar will be devoted to the overall evaluation and students will receive credits.

Teaching methods
There are several projects and each student works on one of them often in cooperation with others. Students explore the given theme during the semester. During seminars, students will refer about their results in the project. Some course specializations may be supplemented with introductory lectures on the particular topic.
Assessment methods
Students are evaluated according to their activity on seminars, and the quality of achieved results and their presentations in front of their peers.
