Information Processing

Information processing is an important ingredient of modern information and communication systems. Study profile includes hardware and software components for processing, storage, coding, transfer, and analysis of various types of information (signals, speech, data, images, video).

Students gain knowledge in theory and applications of communications, compression techniques, information security, and real-time signal processing. Information processing has applications in communication networks, mobile ubiquitous systems, man-machine interaction, multimedia, medical informatics, security systems, biometrics, bioinformatics, and other areas of modern information society.

IP study profile opens carrier paths into a wide spectrum of IT companies, industrial sector, financial and service sector, and any other area where there is a need for processing, analysis, and transfer of information. Skills include design and development of algorithms, hardware and software systems, system testing, integration, and consulting.

Bridge courses

A student whose degree is in Computing or Electrical engineering and information technology is not required to take additional coursework.
Students holding the bachelor degree in Electrical engineering or other related bachelor degree will have to enrol additional courses depending on a difference between their bachelor curriculum and the bachelor curriculum in Electrical engineering and information technology at FER. Additional courses will be defined individually for each applicant by the Admission Committee.
