Graduate's skills

The graduate can design new, effective and well theoretically justified solutions based on original ideas that are accepted by the international scientific and professional community in the field. He/she can implement, evaluate and compare even very complicated existing procedures. Can solve interdisciplinary problems, requiring knowledge not only from computer science and mathematics, but also from a collaborating discipline (e.g. biology and medicine, engineering, economics, etc.). Can anticipate directions of development in his/her field. He can also implement very large and complex works, usually as the leader of a research team. He or she can choose the appropriate solutions procedures and appropriate technologies, based on the use of the latest knowledge. He can independently develop extensive technical texts in a foreign language, especially English, presenting even very complicated and abstract ideas. He/she can defend the proposed solutions in a professional discussion at international level.

Career paths

Graduate's knowledge

The graduate has a professional overview across the entire field of Computer Science and other involved areas, in the breadth and depth beyond the level of a graduate student. Theoretical knowledge of the core disciplines (e.g. mathematics, discrete mathematics, theoretical computer science) are deepened in ways that are directly applicable to applied and basic research in the chosen subfield. The graduate has a deep theoretical and practical knowledge of especially in the specific chosen subfield according to the focus of their research work. Understands scientific methods used in the field of his/her specialization and can apply them himself/herself. Typically, the knowledge of graduates covers computer science and mathematics, as well as one or more application areas such as industrial digitisation, supercomputing, but also chemistry or biology.
