Mission of the specialization (major)

The modern economy is fully supported by the computer science. The finacial sector and rural economy are among many social and economical domains undergoing deep changes. The mission of the Faculty is to form engineers who understand the contemporary world and analyse it using computer methods and algorithms. An important role in this task plays the specialization of Information Systems in Management, realized fully in English. It is focused mainly on methods of analysis of the economic phenomena. Students are acquainted with the quantitative methods of economic analysis and the computer science tools and their practical application. The graduate is able to combine the available methods and tools into the integrated computer analysis systems as well as to modify existing systems. The specialization prepares future programmers, designers and analysts of modern information systems that are used in companies and economical institutions, such as banks, stock markets etc. This specialization is focused on the use of high level programming languages, design and programming of the databases, as well as the design and administration of the computer networks.
