Program description

Computer Science - Theoretical Computer Science

The study program is intended as research oriented study. Students are expected to have strong mathematical background which is further developed during the study with focus on exact thinking. Students gain overview and understanding in many areas of contemporary theoretical computer science - from cryptography and limits of computational systems to state-of-the-art techniques in the design of efficient algorithms and data structures. They will learn about frontiers of current knowledge in areas of their interest. Study may include working in international environment under guidance of recognized experts while writing a master thesis. Graduates are sought after by companies developing future technologies based on current research. At the same time, the study program excellently prepares for doctoral study at any university worldwide.
