Applied Computer Science and Control

Original title in Czech: Aplikovaná informatika a řízeníFSIAbbreviation: M-AIŘAcad. year: 2018/2019

Programme: Mechanical Engineering

Length of Study: 2 years

Accredited from: Accredited until: 31.5.2021


The aim is to educate experts in the development and application of information technologies, designing, implementing and using elements and systems of automation with the use of state-of-the-art computing technology. Major focus is on issues of industrial production as well as on automation in non-industrial areas. Great emphasis is also placed on new and future-oriented approaches based on artificial intelligence. The graduates may find jobs at companies that design and develop information, control and regulation systems, create software products, sell programs and computers. Next they may find profitable jobs at organisations in various areas of human activities as experts in installing and operating means of automation, in building and operating information systems and systems supporting design, manufacture, marketing and economic administration. They may, for example, work as analysts, system engineers, computer network and information system administrators, system programmers, designers and operation engineers of automation and information systems, operators, or automation consultants.

Key learning outcomes

Mastering the practical skills required for the development and applications of information technology and for the design, implementation, and use of computer-based automation components is the primary objective.

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples

The graduates may be employed as analysts, system or specialised programmers, administrators of computer networks, information and knowledge systems, specialists in designing and operating information and automation systems, and as consultants in automation and information technologies.
After receiving a Master's degree, students may continue their studies in a Doctor’s degree programme to receive a Ph.D. degree.
