The Master’s programme in Computer Engineering is tailored to market needs, and enables you to gain the knowledge of the particular field that interests you. It offers two sub-majors: design and application of wireless networks, and design and application of mobile applications.
SUB-MAJOR: DESIGN AND APPLICATION OF WIRELESS NETWORKS
This sub-major will prepare you to plan and predict the development of wireless networks, and to maintain and develop this infrastructure in organisations. You will master developing ICT and wireless solutions for companies providing telecommunication services. You will learn best practices in communicating with providers and contractors, regarding building and developing wireless networks, as well as supervising and verifying customer systems.
You will become adept at designing protocols, along with managing energy and other resources. All this under the assumption of systemic fallibility and low reliability of individual devices. You will be able to include co-operation algorithms in distributed systems, as well as security and data exchange reliability systems in hostile environments.
List of classes in the design and application of wireless networks sub-major
- Introduction to micro-processor systems
- Software design of microprocessor systems
- Specifications and simulation of communication protocols
- Applications of sensor networks
SUB-MAJOR: DESIGN AND APPLICATION OF MOBILE APPLICATIONS
This sub-major will enable you to gain the skills used in programming, and mobile applications design for the most popular mobile operating systems: Android, Windows Phone and iOS. This means that you will become an expert on the architecture and API of basic mobile platforms. In addition, you will learn:
- mobile device localisation techniques,
- principles of system and database construction for mobile platforms,
- website design technologies for mobile devices,
- Adaptive UI technologies,
- technologies for integrating applications with the computing cloud,
- principles of software design frameworks for mobile devices,
- applications of mobile systems.
List of classes in the design and application of mobile applications sub-major
- Introduction to the design of mobile applications
- Architectural patterns websites for mobile devices
- Designing graphical interfaces for mobile applications
- Mobile application testing
