Study branch Computer Networks and Communication covers different parts of data transmission (wired, wireless, mobile), implementation of computer networks for data, voice and multimedia transmissions, including sensor and real-time communications. Students will understand basic concepts and principles of computer communication,  network architecture, and design of network application. They will learn how to design different communication systems, model their behavior, simulate and test them. They will learn how to design communication hardware and process signals. They will get acquainted with design principles of distributed systems connected with information and database systems. Students will study aspects of threat analysis and security. Students will be prepared to manage network applications and nets.

Key learning outcomes

Student of the Follow-Up Master Degree Programme acquire deeper knowledge in a chosen branch of study and will give him knowledge and skills base to analyse, design and verification of problems solved in research and scientific as well as in the practice This guarantee that the alumni will be successful creative worker in the appropriate information technology branch.

Occupational profiles of graduates with examples

An alumnus of the master degree programme is ready to solve problems of information technology in praxis with utilization of contemporary scientific knowledge independently. The alumnus is able to act as an independent creative worker in the appropriate information technology branch, namely information systems and their security and safety, intelligent systems, computer systems, networks and communications, computer graphics and multimedia or a leader of a team composed of workers of various branches of IT.

Extent of the State Final Examinations

The State Final Examination has two parts: A defence of the Master Thesis, and a discussion based on selected topics from the course "Networks and Communication" which is derived from compulsory courses of the branch of Study. The areas of possible questions must be approved by the Study Branch Council, and students will be informed about the selected topics at least 2 months before the state final examination is held in the particular academic year. The discussion will be held on two topics.

Examples of theses
  • Static Analysis of Configurations of Active Network Devices
  • Using SIP Server for IP Telephony on FIT
  • Network Simulation Based on Analysis of Configuration Files of Active Devices
  • User Authentication and Authorization in New Generation Networks
  • Network Traffic Generator with Graphical API
  • Modelling Link States Routing Protocols
  • How to practically deploy IPv6 in LAN networks
  • OpenVPN implementation for Windows CE
  • Virtual environment for Node Access in PlanetLab Testbed

Master's theses are stored at the FIT library, Božetěchova 2, Brno. The list of the master's theses, including the details is available at:
