Abbreviation: MPV

Length of Study: 2 years

Min. Credits: 120

Degree Programme: Information Technology

Language of Instruction: Czech

Form of Study: full-time

Accredited from: 2005 Accredited till: 2024 Last admissions: 2019


Students will get acquainted with theoretical aspects of behavior description and behavior modeling, design and its verification, testing computer systems, and they will be learned the principles of the synthesis and analysis of functional units of computers and other digital devices. Further, they will be informed about the architectures of computer systems with the emphasis on multi-processor, reconfigurable and distributed systems. They will understand the principles of formal specification and their implementation in the design of embedded systems, they will be able to utilize advanced techniques for rapid prototyping and the implementation of typical applications.

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 "Computer and Embedded Systems" which is derived from compulsory courses of the MPV Branch of Study as Hardware/Software Codesign, Mathematical Structures in Computer Science, Theoretical Computer Science, Parallel System Architecture and Programming, Data Coding and Compression, Data Communications, Computer Networks and Protocols, Processor Architecture, Advanced Digital Systems, and Design of External Adapters and Embedded Systems. 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
  • Hardware Support for Multimedia Data Processing
  • Data Compression with Wavelets
  • Performance Prediction and Tuning of Parallel Applications
  • The Optimisation of the Test Application Process of Digital Circuits and Systems
  • Design Tools for Embedded Applications
  • The Use of Evolution Algorithms for Digital Subsystem Synthesis
  • Genetic Algorithms for Test Generation
  • Network Access to an Embedded System
  • The Tool for Executable Specifications of Embedded Systems
  • Design of Specialized Multi-ALU Processors

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:
