Computer Science

Computer Science is the study of computers and algorithmic processes, including their principles, their hardware and software designs, their applications, and their impact on society. Computer science has scientific and mathematical, as well as practical, dimensions integrated into a distinct program study.

Understanding of this integration transcends the implementation details of various components to encompass an appreciation for the complex structure of computer systems and their predictive behaviour.

Computer science gives student competences for the most challenging tasks, from the infrastructural system programming to new application domains, as well as practical skills needed by the potential leaders of a group of programmers guiding them towards the most advanced problem solving paradigms.

Bridge courses

A student whose degree is not in Computing is required to take additional coursework as follows:

  • Students holding bachelor degree in Electrical engineering and information technology have to enrol the following “bridge” courses
    • Introduction to Computing Theory (6 ECTS)
    • Software Design (8 ECTS)
  • Students holding the bachelor degree in other related areas will have to enrol additional courses depending on a difference between their bachelor curriculum and the bachelor curriculum in Computing at FER. Additional courses will be defined individually for each applicant by the Admission Committee.
