Information Technology - A New Bachelor Engineering Program in the Field of Computer and Information Technology
In an effort to meet the ever growing need of IT specialists in almost all the activity areas of modern society, a new BSc. Engineering program is starting at the Faculty of Automation and Computing from the 2022-2023 academic year: Information Technology.
This program works in parallel with the existing Computers program (the modern descendant of the first engineering program in computing across the Romanian universities, started in 1966) and both of them will produce highly qualified engineers in the field of computer and information technology. The main differences between the two programs can be briefly summarized as:
- Information Technology adds more focus on the development, integration and administration of secure computer-based systems and network infrastructures;
- Computers program emphasizes more on the design, implementation and maintenance of hardware and software components of modern computing systems and networks of intelligent devices.
Both programs are based on a modern and flexible curriculum with a common structure. The first year of studies is similar to both programs and the differences appear gradually, starting from the second year. The students will chose at the end of the first year the program they want to follow further on.
The curriculum, which covers a total duration of 4 years (8 semesters), is composed of the following main categories of courses:
Fundamental Courses (Engineering Sciences)
Domain Courses (Computer and IT)
Specialty Courses and Electives (Information Technology program)
