Software Engineering and Information Systems

Software Engineering and Information Systems is a profile where the software development is studied in a systematic, controllable and efficient way. The program focuses on the analysis and evaluation, specification, design and development of software products. Students will learn about project management, quality assurance processes and standardization. They will be encouraged to work in teams and to express their creativity.
Information systems are focused on using computer hardware, communication and software technology to fulfil the needs of information and to advance almost every aspect of human activities. 
Technical, mathematical and other interdisciplinary knowledge is applied to analysis and restructuring of systems that include a human being as a user and a key subject. Such systems might be business systems, production or governmental systems. Complex software systems are designed, developed and implemented to serve as the basis of all the activities within the enterprises and to enhance their competitiveness.

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
    • Databases (6 ECTS)
    • Development of Software Applications (4 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.
