Master of Science in Research in Computer and Systems Engineering

The program is aimed to achieving practice-oriented knowledge and skills in the field of Сomputer Science and Information Technology, and includes basic subjects such as Control Engineering, Theoretical Computer Science, Statistical Data Analysis, Decision making theory, Neural networks, Computer systems, Modern problems of computer science and engineering, Information systems as well as advanced subjects such as Intelligent systems, Software & Systems Engineering, Mobile Communications Networks, Parallel Programming, Systems simulation with Matlab, Systems Optimization, Systems Security, Complex Embedded Systems, UMTS Networks, Advanced database systems etc. Also during studies students are involved to the performance of integrated projects, and at the end of studies they prepare and defend final Master's degree thesis. It is assumed that each students will have two scientific supervisors: one from side of Russian university and second from side of German university. High standards of teaching and research activity are provided by modern innovation infrastructure of leading Russian university and respective German university as well. Department of Information Security is a leading at the Institute of Technical Cybernetics & Informatics of KNRTU-KAI for joint Master's program with the TU Ilmenau within the project GRIAT.
