The Faculty of Computer Science, Electronics and Telecommunications, thanks to its exceptional scientific staff and experienced teachers, carries out research and educates students in the fields of computer science, electronics, telecommunications, as well as information and communication technologies.
The strategy of the faculty includes key research areas such as information society technologies, cloud computing technologies, fast optical networks, global wireless communications, Internet of the Future, Internet of Things and sustainable development, e.g. embedded systems in electronics, industrial electronics, telemedicine, design of electronic systems, signal recognition, microwave techniques, optoelectronics, photovoltaics, sensor systems, spintronics, and nanotechnology.
The potential of the faculty manifests itself in scientific-research category “A” awarded by the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, as well as an outstanding evaluation by the State Accreditation Committee for the degree programmes of Computer Science, and Electronics and Telecommunications. In the ranking of Universities “Perspektywy 2015”, the Faculty of Computer Science, Electronics and Telecommunications came first in Poland in category “IT”, and second among faculties providing education in Electronics and Telecommunications.
Introduced in academic year 2012/2013 new degree programme of Teleinformatics, which combines the achievements of Computer Science and Telecommunications, develops dynamically. Independently from Electronics and Telecommunications, offered both in Polish and English, the first degree programme in Electronics started for the second time in the academic year 2015/2016. Faculty supports PhD studies in the following disciplines: computer science, electronics or telecommunication and is authorized to confer the academic degree of doctor and doctor habilitatus.
Classes take place in modern and exceptionally well-equipped lecture rooms and laboratories, for example, at the AGH UST Centre of Computer Science, which became operational in 2012 – a building that has received many awards and distinctions for its original architecture.
The faculty also offers exceptional activities in student research groups: Telephoners, KNE (student special interest group of electronic engineers), SPECTRUM (signal processing), and BIT. Degree programmes that are adjusted to the needs of modern industry combined with high teaching standards give graduates of the Faculty of Computer Science, Electronics and Telecommunications a real advantage on the labour market, and allow them to become valuable members of engineering teams working for international corporations located in Krakow, such as IBM, Cisco, Motorola, Delphi, Comarch, ABB, Nokia Solutions and Networks.
