Short Courses in Computer Science & IT

Computer science and IT studies processes of computers and computational systems. Students gain knowledge about computation, software, hardware and computer systems, in computers science degrees combining theoretical and practical approaches. Unlike computer engineers, computer scientists deal with creating software using certain principles of theory, design, development, and application. Future IT specialists apply mathematical knowledge and analyse algorithms to solve diverse problems and optimise performance of computer software. Bachelor’s students in computer science learn about how computers are built, the principles behind operating systems, familiarise themselves with classic algorithms and learn to design their own.

Technical universities worldwide offers diverse Masters in Computer Science and IT including a broad range of specialisations such as: artificial intelligence, computer networks, IT security, information databases, web technologies, human-computer interaction, graphics and multimedia, programming languages, bioinformatics, software engineering, and more.

Graduates of computer science and IT degrees are in high demand on the global job market, and can work in fields related to: manufacturing of information systems, maintenance and sales, software and hardware development, e-business, telecommunication networks expertise. Find well-paid jobs as database administrator, game developer, IT consultant, systems analyst, web designer, and more.
