Annotation This course introduces students to advanced techniques of applied computer sciences. Students are encouraged to analyze information from the Internet, periodic scientific publications and topical information presented in international scientific conferences and symposiums. Thus, students are able to keep track of trends of applied computer science elaboration and to assess their perspectives. Practical work encourages using and developing the latest results and trends of applied computer sciences in the Master Thesis..
Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
The goal is to use and to evolve the latest achievements and trends of applied computer sciences in the master thesis. Students are encouraged to perform research within a Master Thesis. The research should be grounded on students’ knowledge in software development. They should consider the latest results and discovered trends. Students can improve their competences in advanced software development techniques, skills in definition and formulation of technique similarities and differences, and assessment of perspectives of the new techniques.
