Enrolment into the first year
The following individuals can be enrolled in the first year of the higher professional study programme Computer Science and Web Technologies:
- Anyone who has completed the matura examination;
- Anyone who has completed the vocational matura examination or final exam in any programme for obtaining secondary education.
The faculty may limit the enrolment if the number of applications significantly exceeds the number of available vacancies. In the case of limited enrolment, the candidates are selected according to the following criteria:
- Overall success at the final exam, vocational matura examination or general matura examination – 60% points,
- Overall score in the third and fourth year of secondary education – 40% points.
Enrolment into the second year
Enrolment directly into the second year of the higher professional study programme of Computer Science and Web Technologies is possible for graduates who have completed a higher professional programme, adopted after 01. 01. 1994 if they meet the conditions for the enrolment into a higher professional study programme. Before enrolling in the third year, the students must pass additional exams in the range of maximum 30 credit points (ECTS) based on recognized differences between programmes. Additional exams are prescribed by the competent authority of the faculty based on the application for enrolment and relevant documents.
Graduates of higher professional programmes in the field of computer science and informatics are prescribed the following additional exams: Mathematics 2, Operation Systems and Web Programming 1.
Graduates of other higher professional programmes are prescribed the following additional exams: Mathematics 2, Operation Systems, Web Programming 1, Introduction to Algorithms and Introduction to Programming.
Enrolment into the third year
Enrolment directly into the third year of the higher professional study programme of Computer Science and Web Technologies is possible for graduates who have completed a higher professional programme, adopted after 01. 01. 1994, and graduates who have completed a post-secondary professional or university education programmes adopted before 11. 06. 2004, if they meet the conditions for the enrolment into a higher professional study programme. Before registering the topic of their diploma thesis, they must pass additional exams in selected subjects from the first and / or second year, which are prescribed by the competent authority of the faculty based on established differences between the programmes:
- If the candidate has completed a post-secondary educational, higher professional or university programme in the fields of computer science and informatics, the competent faculty authority shall prescribe the following additional exams based on application for enrolment: Web Programming 1 and Web Programming 2;
- If the candidate has completed a post-secondary educational, higher professional or university programme in the fields of social science or business informatics, the competent faculty authority shall prescribe the following additional exams based on the application for enrolment: Web Programming 1, Web Programming 2, Operation Systems and Web and Mobile Application Development Life-Cycle;
- If the candidate has completed a post-secondary educational, higher professional or university programme in other fields of study, the competent faculty authority shall prescribe the following additional exams based on the application for enrolment: Introduction to Programming, Introduction to Algorithms, Web Programming 1, Operation Systems, Databases and Data Modelling, Web Programming 2 and Web and Mobile Application Development Life-Cycle.
To advance from the first to the second year, the student must acquire at least 45 ECTS from the first year. To advance from the second to the third year, the student must complete all obligations from the first year in addition to acquiring at least 45 ECTS from the second year. If a student enrols in the second year of the Computer Science and Web Technologies programme (professional) after completing a higher professional programme adopted after 01. 01. 1994, they must pass the prescribed differential exams by the time of enrolment in the third year.
The faculty may allow the student to advance to a higher year, even if the required conditions are not met, in the following circumstances: maternity, prolonged illness, exceptional family or social circumstances, participation in top cultural, sports or professional events.
A student who does not meet the conditions for enrolling in a higher year may repeat a year once during their studies or change their study programme or course due to non-fulfilment of obligations in the previous study programme or course. It is not possible to repeat the third year because an additional year (absolventski staž) is intended for fulfilling the missing obligations.
In accordance with the applicable legislation, a student’s student status may be extended for a maximum of one year if the student:
- Does not enrol in a higher year for justified reasons;
- Does not graduate within 12 months after the end of the last semester for justified reasons;
- Gives birth during their studies.
Depending on their academic achievements, the student may complete the study in a shorter period of time that provided for in the study programme.
In order to finish the studies, the student must successfully complete all study obligations prescribed by the study programme in the range of 180 ECTS.
The student who enrols into the second year after graduating from a higher professional programme adopted after 01. 01. 1994, must complete all prescribed differential exams and regular study obligations from the second and third year in the range of minimum 120 ECTS.
The student who enrols into the third year after graduating from a higher professional programme adopted after 01. 01. 1994, must complete all prescribed differential exams and regular study obligations from the third year in the range of minimum 60 ECTS.
The study ends with the preparation and oral defence of the diploma thesis.
- Ability to perform all phases of web and mobile app development: planning, development, launch, sales, maintenance;
- Ability to understand the requirements of end-users or to identify opportunities for new online services and to convert related content requirements into technical specifications;
