The programme lasts for 3.5 years
(7 semesters). The total number of course hours is 2335
per person including:
- 975 of lectures for all students in the same year
- 180 hours of classes (for groups of 32)
- 1180 hours of laboratory and project related classes (for groups of 16)
In addition, after their third year, students complete one-month of practical training in IT companies
The study curriculum was developed based on the needs of the IT labour market with a particular focus on the needs of the West Pomeranian market. This is why the largest IT companies in the region participated in the development of the curriculum. The curriculum itself is updated on an ongoing basis so that its content and requirements fit in with the current development trends in the industry. During your studies you will learn to use modern programming languages, including desktop, mobile and web application programming. You will also learn how developer teams work in agile software development methodologies, and become familiar with teamwork tools and current software engineering methods. From the middle of the second year you can choose one of three specialisations.
The first one is Programming Information Systems, focused on learning programming techniques from low-level to web and mobile application development.
Key strengths of computer science graduates
The second one is Multimedia Systems Programming, where you will not only learn how modern simulators and games are created, but also learn advanced methods of teamwork in agile methodologies. You will learn testing techniques and, above all, teamwork when building intelligent systems using advanced databases, artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things and virtual reality.
The third specialisation is Marine Informatics. It is a specialisation focused on learning about the functioning and creation of marine IT systems, including navigation systems and communication methods.
You can also develop your passions within the Computer Science Students Association, where we carry out many interesting projects (e.g.: gesture-controlled drone, construction of a racing class drone, game projects using virtual reality). Working in the Association will allow you to develop your professional skills and improve your teamwork techniques. It will allow you to enrich your CV and, as a result, find a job more easily, both in Poland and abroad, in IT companies, especially in developer companies.

Information technology is one of the key development areas in the Polish and foreign markets. We are surrounded by increasingly advanced intelligent systems capable of performing complex data analysis for information retrieval, as well as applications providing all kinds of services. The growing complexity of the systems around us and their sheer number mean that a huge number of new ICT companies are developing in Poland and around the world, capable of absorbing virtually any number of IT graduates. The IT programme itself, as well as the specializations it offers, are part of the so-called regional specialties of the Province of West Pomerania
and technologies of the future
, which will be developing especially in the years to come.
