Aims

Graduate university study in Computing enables students to acquire highly specialist knowledge in the field and to be trained to perform the most complex engineering tasks based on the scientific approach to problem-solving. Students develop the ability of an interdisciplinary approach to system integration, information processing, and to the search for innovative solution. Student independently design, manage, and analyse problems and offer solutions related to the development of circuit and software support and system networks. They efficiently choose and apply modern tools and methods from the profession to complex engineering activities. They acquire knowledge and skills needed for designing systems, components, and processes that meet specific demands of a given field. The study programme is similar to those at higher education institutions abroad, but meeting the specific demands of the community and region in which the University of Rijeka, Faculty of Engineering operates. The study programme incorporates recommendations from the Bologna Declaration that refer to programme quality assurance, mobility, and diploma recognition.

This study programme enables specialisation in one of the following two areas:

  • Software Engineering
  • Computer Systems

 Learning outcomes

Scientific approach – computing

  • Apply specialist knowledge based on the scientific approach in the field of computing for solving engineering problems
  • Critically assess and discuss specific engineering problems
  • Develop new solutions for set engineering problems through independent research in the field of computing

Specialist competencies – computing

  • Independently design, manage, and analyse a problem
  • Propose solutions related to the development of circuit and software support and network systems
  • Efficiently choose and apply appropriate modern tools and methods from the profession to complex engineering activities

Contribution to development – computing

  • Create innovative solutions for set problems in the field of computing
  • Recommend system integration and information processing based on an interdisciplinary approach

Soft skills

  • Assume ethical responsibility during task execution
  • Communicate appropriately to the business environment, negotiate, and present functional parts

Length of study

2 years

Academic title

Upon completion of the study, the following academic title is awarded: Master of Computing (mag. ing. comp.)
