Study aims

Information security study programme is focused on the area of information and communication technologies (ICT). Students will explore technical aspects of ICT security as well as topics from law and economy connected to ICT security.

Graduate profile

The graduates will have necessary theoretical knowledge of mathematics, computer science, cryptography, economy and law, particularly of those areas connected with the design, operation and administration of information and communication systems. In the higher grades, the theoretical knowledge is extended by practical courses focused on gaining skills necessary for the operation of modern information technologies. The graduates will be able to apply this knowledge with respect to actual state of legislation and economic aspects of security products developed. The complex approach covering all aspects of modern information security makes it possible to provide students with education necessary not only for purely technical positions, but also for management and economical positions. The development of students’ language skills is also a strong priority, in particular the professional English is taught.

Profession characteristics

The three-year study program branch Information security (BPC-IBE) is an interdisciplinary bachelor study provided by the Faculty of electrical engineering and communication (FEEC). The graduates are experts in information and communication systems with the specialization on security.

Study plan creation

Courses are evaluated according to ECTS credits. The credit expresses an approximate weekly student's workload for the course. Credits for a given course are obtained after the prescribed completion, i.e. after awarding a credit, classified credit, or by passing an exam under the conditions of the BUT Rules of Study and Examination, the internal standard of the Rules for Organization of Studies at FEEC and the composition and content individually defined in each course.

In a three-year bachelor study, the student must earn at least 180 credits in the specified credit composition:
146 credits in compulsory courses,
21 credits in specified groups of compulsory elective (PV) courses,
9 credits in elective courses.

Obligatory courses are usually completed by the student in semesters and years as stated in the curriculum. If a student fails to complete a compulsory course in the prescribed manner, he / she must register it again in the following year of his / her studies.
Compulsory elective courses of profiling fundamentals (PVA) are field-oriented professional courses that profile the student into narrower areas of his / her interests.
Other compulsory (PVB) courses are other professional courses included in the offers of the departments of FEEC BUT. Their goal is to extend students' professional knowledge.
The student chooses to select PV courses in individual semesters so that at the end of his / her bachelor's degree he / she has at least the prescribed minimum of credits in each group of PV courses, while not obtaining the minimum number of credits in one group of PV courses cannot be compensated by exceeding the number of credits obtained in another group of PV courses.
During the study, students must complete two English courses (English for Bachelors, English for Electrical Engineering).
Elective courses extend the general knowledge of students. Courses are chosen by the student himself or herself from a full-faculty offer (FEEC departments) or from the other faculties of VUT (so-called free courses) and can pass them in any year or semester of bachelor study. Elective courses include Physical Education. If a student has not successfully completed an elective course, he / she may or may not write another academic year in the next academic year.
Students must obtain the corresponding electrotechnic qualification at the beginning of their study.

Availability for the disabled

All lecture rooms at the FEEC BUT allow disabled access; students, however, must meet the medical standards to acquire the necessary electrotechnical qualifications. In laboratory classes and practicals, students are required to independently operate measuring instruments and related equipment without endangering human health or damaging property.

What degree programme types may have preceded

The graduates may continue in a master's study programme.
