Specialist subjects in Designing mobile application are also introduced from semester 4.

Web applications
Whether you want to work in a startup, a software house, or a corporation, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to develop web applications in IT. This kind of work is in fact divided into two main roles – frontend, that is work on the visual layer, implementation of graphic layouts and coordination of application behavior, and backend – activities “behind the scenes”, in the server part, where the main role is played by efficient data processing, ensuring security and scalability of created applications.

Project management and user experience
Working in the IT sector is not just about programming and technology! It is difficult to imagine effective implementation of IT projects without an effective- Project Manager. And even the best programmers won’t create a great application if it is prepared by proper understanding of users’ needs – and this is what UX/UI designer does. If you want to work in IT, and at the same time you feel great working with people – this specialization is for You!
