The specialisation Applied Computer Science covers

  • Computer Science in Industry
  • Modelling and Information Technology
  • Computer Science in Heat Engineering
  • Computer Science in Metallurgy

    Students who study Applied Computer Science learn how to use the newest programming techniques and how to adapt existing software to particular industrial conditions. They will be skilled in using numerical modelling and artificial intelligence software, expert systems, graphics and multimedia techniques and technical device maintenance systems.
    Graduate students will have a theoretical knowledge of the physical basics of technological processes, mechanics, thermal phenomena, materials engineering and industrial automatics. The syllabus is comprised of a group of general engineering subjects. The latter group deals with the science of metallic, ceramic and polymeric materials, the related materials science of making, processing and refining of steels and special alloys as well as of sintered materials and composites, environmental protection and modern methods of business management and organisation.
    A degree course in computing covers a wide range of subjects. These include the design and construction of computer system, the organisation of operating systems and other systems software which control the behaviour of the computer, the methods used to design and construct programs, and the design and implementation of an entire information processing system. Computing is essentially a practical subject, but includes the body of theory concerned with the principles behind the design of the systems, and methodology used to produce more effective and reliable systems.
    We offer three courses, BEng , MSc. Eng., PhD all of which give you a thorough grounding in the fundamental principles and techniques of computing. You will be given ample opportunity to put theory into practice. This will enable you, on graduation, to perform a useful role as a computer professional, aware of recent developments in hardware and software, and able to deal with advances in computer technology.
    The research interests of lecturers include computer graphics, computer-mediated communication, conceptual graphs, database systems, decision support systems, general purpose multiprocessor, microprocessor applications, operating system design, software engineering, user interface management systems and the use of computers in education. The Department has its own teaching and research laboratories and an extensive range networked computing equipment. Teaching facilities include a new teaching laboratory.
