In the Computer Science - Software and Data Engineering program at Charles University, students are given a broad overview of their field, helping them to think independently, to distinguish between important and marginal problems, and to accommodate quickly to novel technologies. The focus is on understanding the core principles of how and why things work and on the application of these principles within modern technologies.

About

The strong theoretical basis of the Computer Science - Software and Data Engineering program at Charles University gives our graduates a competitive advantage in a dynamically evolving world where today’s technologies are often obsolete tomorrow.

Studies usually take two years and finish with a state final exam and Master’s thesis defense. After successful completion the student is awarded the title of a Master of Science.

The study branch Software and data engineering aims at expertise in analysis, design and development of complex software solutions, and systems focused on big data processing. The portfolio of courses provided in the study covers a number of technological platforms, from classic, web-based, to modern cloud and distributed solutions. A required part of the study is a work on large software project where students apply not only the theoretical knowledge and technological skills but also team work abilities.

The graduate gains a deep knowledge of software and data engineering based on her/his specialization. With the specialization Software engineering the graduate is able to analyse requirements for software solutions, to design architectures, and to lead the development process. The specialization Software development prepares the graduate for leading a team of SW developers. The development of internet applications is covered by the specialization Web engineering. The graduate of Database systems is able to design schemas of databases and to implement complex database applications. With the Big data processing specialization the graduate is prepared for the role of data scientist with abilities in data mining and related data analytics knowledge.
