Study program overview
You will learn programming languages (R, Phyton)
You will learn what Machine learning and Deep learning
You will learn data mining methods
You will be able to choose a solution to data mining problems and analyse large data sets
During your studies, you will not only gain the competences of a Data Scientist specialist, but also meet interesting people from the IT industry - and perhaps even your future employer - thanks to numerous study visits and meetings with interns that we regularly organize during your studies. You will be able to apply the acquired knowledge in practice thanks to individual and group projects, workshops, trainings and hackathons, all together with the cooperation of the WSB University with industry-renowned companies such as Fujitsu, IBM, AWS or Microsoft will enable you to learn about the latest trends in the IT area.
At the WSB University, we know how important technical skills combined with soft skills are today. We educate graduates who are ready to take on various challenges and are not afraid of them. Therefore, in addition to the subjects that shape typical engineering skills, we also took care of equipping graduates with competences that allow them to find themselves in the increasingly demanding labour market. Thanks to Design Thinking and Problem Based Learning workshops, you will learn to solve problems creatively, and classes related to the implementation of IT projects will prepare you for the real challenges faced by engineers working mainly with projects and design.
And if you want, you have the opportunity to develop yourself further by participating in the F44 Red scientific club, which is very successful in international competitions (cybersecurity competitions being one of them).
Selected basic content: databases and data warehouses, advanced numerical methods, computer arithmetic and automation theory.
Selected directional content: infrastructure and cloud services, integrated management systems, design and modeling of IT systems using UML.
Content within the specialization: mathematical statistics and R language, data visualization, Python language in data processing and internet data mining, introduction to data mining methods, practical aspects of data preparation, decision support systems, bio-inspired methods and algorithms, machine learning and deep learning, image and sound processing and recognition algorithms.
Our study program is regularly consulted with representatives of the business environment - including employers of the largest companies in the IT industry, so you can be sure that after graduating from our program, you will gain knowledge, skills and competences that are a guarantee of success in todays the labour market.
We also regularly ask students of last semesters and our graduates what they specifically liked and disliked about the study program. Through such activities, we not only adjust the didactic offer to the needs of our students, but also give them a real influence and participation in shaping the program.
These activities bring noticeable results, as the engineering study program for the IT major has received the prestigious accreditation of the Accreditation Committee of Technical Universities (KAUT), and the EUR-ACE Label - an international quality certificate awarded to them. We are the second private university in the country that managed to obtain KAUT and EUR-ACE certificates.
The accreditation is received for the longest possible period, i.e. 5 years (until February 2026) - which confirms that studying Computer Science at the WSB University is the best possible choice for you.
