Within the Software Engineering specialization, you will learn about the theory, technologies and procedures used to develop information systems. In addition to theory, you will learn to develop such systems using modern development tools, methods and technologies. You will learn how to develop web applications and applications in a distributed environment. Upon completion of your studies, you will be prepared to design, operate and manage information systems. You will also become familiar with the technologies and important standards used in project management and to support business activities. You will be sought after by companies developing or operating software systems - for example, local government, the military, education, healthcare and all industrial enterprises.

Compulsory Programme Courses - Winter
The common basis of the programme
The common core of the program consists of courses that will give you the knowledge important for all IT engineers:
- Computation Systems Architectures will teach you how to think about how your code will run on modern computing platforms, how to think about programming in a way that makes the most efficient use of resources, i.e., that your application makes the best use of the power of modern platforms, makes efficient use of system memory resources, and is also efficient in terms of energy consumed.
- Functional and Logic Programming will teach you that although classical imperative programming is a very widely used paradigm and is very close to machine-level implementation, there are other approaches that will give you a new perspective on some key problems and help you get novel and often more efficient solutions to them.
- Modern Trends in Informatics (in English) you need to know to see where the field is going and what to expect in practice in a few years.
- Parallel and Distributed Algorithms is a course that will show you the patterns, limits, and pitfalls of parallel and distributed algorithmic solutions and the associated synchronization mechanisms, without which you will hardly succeed in solving many of the more complex problems.
- Statistics and probability is the right hand of every engineer to process numerical results of experiments or data obtained while running your application, analyze them and learn from them to make further decisions is almost his daily bread.
- Theoretical Computer Science shows the limits of computer science capabilities through formal languages and mathematical models of computation. This is the only way to understand whether your problem is even solvable and, if so, with what resources and means to prove it.
- Data Storage and Preparation, especially big data, and extracting knowledge from it is a valuable art to any computer scientist. It is a key aspect that strongly influences the effectiveness of many solutions and applications.
- Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning is a course where you will learn how to teach computers to understand our world and make them solve problems that are easy for humans but difficult for an algorithmic machine to handle.
Recommended course compositions
Software engineering is the process of analysing user needs, designing, building and testing applications for end users. The aim is to introduce students to the theory, technologies and practices used in the development of information systems (IS) and to teach them how to develop such systems using modern development tools, methods and technologies. Students will also learn about the methodology and techniques of IS development with respect to the current needs of the business sphere and the knowledge areas of project management. In the compulsory courses, students will deepen the knowledge acquired in the Bachelor's studies, especially in the areas of database and information systems, data mining, knowledge extraction from data, artificial intelligence, automated testing and machine learning. Attention is also paid to the security of information systems. By selecting electives, students can further focus on deepening the theoretical foundations of formal specifications or cryptography, or focus more practically on, for example, the creation of web applications and applications in a distributed environment. Thanks to the high-quality theoretical education and a broad universal basis of application-oriented studies, the graduate's high adaptability to many current requirements of his/her future professional practice, including in other areas of information technology, is ensured.
The graduate is oriented in the components and architectures of information systems and can integrate technical and software products in their creation.

What are we talking about?
The pilot is preparing for landing on the runway when a blinding green beam illuminates the entire cockpit. It was just hit from the ground by an attacker using lasers. Each year, the police register several dangerous incidents that could potentially result in a tragedy. Therefore, the Václav Havel Airport in cooperation with the Czech Police reached out to researchers from the FIT BUT, CTU and the University of Defence. The goal is to design a system of aerial protection against low-power lasers.
Adam Herout: I enjoy connecting the world of atoms and bits
For his academic and pedagogical achievements, Adam Herout received a silver medal from the Rector this year. In 2015, at the age of 37, he became one of the youngest professors at BUT. He works at the Department of Computer Graphics and Multimedia at the Faculty of Information Technology, where he focuses on computer vision, as well as at Angelcam, a company he co-founded. He writes a blog for students in his spare time and does coaching. Yet, Adam Herout often says: 'I am an amateur and a dilettante'.
