Program Profile

This 2.5-year Master program specializes in training computer system analysts. This choice is based on the evidence that highly-skilled computer system analysts can better adapt to the changing job market. They are easier to change their research topics according to the world science priorities. They have great opportunities to be involved in international projects on fundamental problems of computer science.

The educational and vocational Master Program for the specialty #8.05010301 – Software of Systems – requires mastering the two sets of subjects: normative and optional.

The normative set includes professionally-oriented disciplines determined by the educational and vocational Master Program for the Software of Systems specialty, the Ukrainian and the English language, and philosophy (a course within humanitarian training).

Optional disciplines include:

а) a series of professionally-oriented courses according to the Master Program and University requirements;
b) a series of social and economic disciplines;
c) a series of psychological and pedagogical courses.

To complete the Master Program in Specialty #8.05010301, Software of Systems, a student is supposed to master all the mandatory disciplines (118 credits), some part of optional disciplines (18 – 33 credits), pass through the curriculum-specified research practice (2 credits), and be prepared to present a Master thesis (14 credits).  The total amount of credits received during the entire term of studying at this Master Program is 150-165.
