Software Engineering is a process of analyzing user needs, designing, constructing and testing end-user applications. The aim is to acquaint students with the theory, technologies and procedures used in the development of information systems (IS) and to teach them to develop such systems using modern development tools, methods and technologies. The student will also be acquainted with the methodology and methodology of IS development with respect to the current needs of the business sphere and with knowledge areas of project management. In compulsory subjects, students will deepen their knowledge of bachelor's degree programs, especially in the areas of database and information systems, data mining, data mining, artificial intelligence, automated testing and machine learning. Attention is also paid to security of information systems. By choosing optional courses, the student can further focus on deepening the theoretical foundations of formal specifications or cryptography, or focus more practically on creating Internet applications and applications in a distributed environment. Thanks to high-quality theoretical education and a broad universal foundation of application-oriented study, the graduate's high adaptability to many current requirements of his future professional practice is ensured, even in other areas of information technology.
