-

  • A first Bologna cycle study programme comprising at least 180 ECTS credits from the relevant vocational fields or
  • a first Bologna cycle study programme comprising at least 180 ECTS credits from other scientific-technical fields, and additional study requirements from other computer science topics totalling at least 24 credits or
  • a first-cycle professional education study programme from the field of computer and information sciences adopted prior to 11 June 2004, or
  • a first-cycle professional education study programme from other scientific-technical fields adopted prior to 11 June 2004, and additional study requirements from other computer science fields totalling at least 24 credits

-

Examination performance is scored as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10).

-

Master’s degree students must meet all requirements defined by the study programme, and thus accumulate 120 ECTS credits, to complete their studies.
