Department of Computer SystemsThe Department of Computer Systems is responsible for teaching courses in MSc specialisation Computer Systems and Networks, which covers processor and computer architecture, data communication, communication protocols and computer networks, development of network-based, Internet, parallel and embedded applications, design of hybrid hw/sw systems and their specification, digital signal processing, design of specialised interfaces including interfaces to Internet. Besides, the Department is also in charge of teaching several courses in the Bc programme called Information Technology.
Scientific and research activities of the Department are focused on architecture of hardware and software of embedded systems, specification and design of computer-based systems, reconfigurable systems, adaptive systems, diagnostics and testing of digital systems and bioinspired computer systems. The main areas of interest are the following:
The lectures in most of the courses are supplemented with projects or laboratory sessions, where students acquire hands-on experience and skills with the latest software packages and hardware units (workstations, multiprocessor systems, workstation clusters, RT OS, design systems for FPGA and the like), learn basics of a teamwork and project management. For the most demanding projects IBM BladeServer clusters are used.
Seminar of the Department of Computer Systems is organized every Friday at 1PM in L321. See program.
