Telecommunications and Informatics is based on information theory and information network theory, as well as switching algebra and automata theory. It is focused on the analysis and synthesis of multimedia information and communication in networks, as well as design and implementation of various communication systems and services. Models of local, access, and core networks are studied, including multi-service, intelligent, broadband networks and Internet, as well as planning and optimization of networks and information flows, and network management. Information transmission and routing, including photonic technology are studied, as well as information and communication services, manageable, and testable systems and networks structures with adequate performance.
Knowledge is acquired in the areas of distributed systems, programming, specification and modelling languages, data processing and management in networked systems, telematic services, e-business, and systems with learning capability. Related to that communication protocols, multimedia communications, virtual reality and virtual environments, mobility in networks, mobile networks and software agents are studied.
Software engineering is focused on telecommunication systems, while project management as well as research and development management are oriented towards telecom market. Acquired competencies are suitable for, but not limited to the following employment opportunities and positions: research and development of software products for networks and services in telecommunication industry; planning, implementation, testing and management of public fixed and mobile telecommunication networks, Internet and related services; design and operation of corporate and private networks and associated information systems and e-business systems with information rich contents; fundamental and applied research and high education.
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:
- Communication Networks (4 ECTS)
- Students holding 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.
