Objective of the ICT education is to learn how to develop and use applications and systems needed for the communication between people, and companies, as well as between equipment, devices and things. In addition to the technical qualifications, the ICT engineer needs oral and written communication skills in different languages, business skills, as well as the negotiation and leadership skills. Given the rapid development of ICT industry, the engineer needs good learning skills, including the ability to follow the development of the ICT technologies but also an attitude to the continuous development from the lifelong learning perspective. International work environments, project based working and challenging tasks require the engineer to have good assessment and problem-solving skills. In particular, the client projects require good interpersonal skills but the development of social media applications and games requires good psychological and artistic stance and approach.
The extent of the education is 240 ECTS credits. First year of studies is organised in four study themes. They provide fundamental knowledge and skills in the field of ICT and also introduce the study paths in Information and Communication Technology Degree Programme. This enables a student to choose the most suitable study path for him/her. Mathematics, physics as well as computer science, English and business skills are integrated in the study themes.
Students aquire the skills for software engineering professionals: project management, software engineering processes, models and tools.
