Entry knowledge

The subject knowledge on the Bachelor degree level is required.

Rules for evaluation and completion of the course

final examination
The content and forms of instruction in the evaluated course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every academic year.


To provide theoretical knowledge of information gathering, processing and sharing in communication systems, and of their structure, behaviour and mutual interaction.
Students have skills of design and implementation of various forms of abstract data types and its application to solve specific problems. To solve them the stduents can use linear, tree and graph data structures, furthemore they can search in the data structures and used genetic algorithms for search in a search space and optimization.
