1. Programme Requirements

The programme of study leading to the M.Sc. degree (graduate) in the area of Information and Communications Technology requires course work in one specialization and a thesis. The programme lasts two years and students have to choose their specialization and field of study from the beginning.

Two specializations are currently offered:

  • Computer Systems and Networks (CSN) in the field of Computer Science,
  • Telecommunications (TCM) in the field of Telecommunications.

sem. 1 sem. 2 sem. 3 sem. 4

The master's degree programme requires a minimum of 120 ECTS credits, including credit units earned for research and thesis. The 120 credits requirement may be met by completion of courses offered at the Warsaw University of Technology in combination with transfer credit from other academic institutions. The total amount of transfer credit cannot exceed 30 credits.

Each graduate student has a faculty advisor. This professor helps the student plan an academic programme of course work consistent with the degree requirements and the sudent's educational objective. The advisor also supervises the student's research and thesis. The thesis is based on a research project that involves, in part, original material.

2. Programme of the CSN Specialization

The graduates of the master's degree programme in the Computer Systems and Networks have the comprehensive qualifications in the area of computer-science fundamentals, including fundamentals of information processing, as well as in the area of algorithms and system modeling. They are proficient in computer programming and skilful in using the computer tools efficiently. They are self-reliant in scheduling, implementing and verifying complex computer projects. Their knowledge enables them to quickly adapt themselves to the rapidly changing environment. Depending on the final profiling, the graduates are well prepared for the research work, for the design, implementation and operation of computer systems and digital equipment, for the software development, for the administration of computer systems and networks as well as for the implementation of security systems.

3. Programme of the TCM Specialization

The graduates of the master’s degree programme in the Telecommunications have the knowledge and skills necessary for the design, implementation and operation of telecommunication circuits, equipment and systems based on modern technologies. They know, in particular, the methods and techniques for transmission of information by means of radiowaves – using the potential of digital techniques, computers and other advanced technologies – as well as the methods for image and sound processing. The qualifications of the graduates include the capabilities necessary for solving system problems that require comprehensive knowledge in the areas of telecommunications and computer science, combined with some non-engineering knowledge. Depending on the final profiling, the graduates are well prepared for the research work or for the design and operation of telecommunication and data-communication equipment and systems, as well as for designing multimedia systems and their Internet applications.
