The power of tradition and innovation
A common feature of all study programmes is their adaptation to market needs and emphasis on the applicability of the transferred knowledge. Our students carry out projects and diploma theses on demand and in cooperation with external companies, they participate in research and implementation work conducted by faculty units. They successfully participate in specialist competitions, such as Team Game Development Competition (ZTGK), and international competitions, such as Imagine Cup. They are also frequent recipients of scholarships from the Ministry of Science and Higher Education.
