One can continue study in Institute for Information and Communication Technologies of «KROK» University or in higher educational institutions in Ukraine and abroad.
Content formation of the training in the field of Software Systems Maintenance gives the subject focus on a new generation of software products in which the processing of large amounts of information, the principles of fuzzy logic and artificial intelligence elements, allowing their use for training and study important management decisions, are widely used.
College graduates who received a diploma of Junior Specialist may continue training in the relevant field of study on the third course.
During the study students receive a professional computer, thorough mathematical, serious social and economic as well as humanitarian training, also during the first year of study they master a number of general education courses.
Professional training is provided by the following majors: basics of programming and algorithmic languages, computer design, computer architecture, organization of data and knowledge bases, system software and operating systems, methods and tools of computer information technologies, computer networks, information processing systems and decision making, information systems and data structures, object-oriented programming technology, web-technology, programming and software technology, artificial intelligence, client-server architecture application development, electronic document management systems, computer applications systems maintenance.
The rapid development of information technologies and their main technical facilities - computers lead to the increasing saturation of them practically all spheres of human activity. Therefore, students receive the necessary knowledge on the basics of computer hardware, its main characteristics and functionalities. Such knowledge enables to make the choice more consciously, to organize maintenance, upgrade personal computers, the organization is equipped with.
Following the time requirements, the College and the University provide knowledge and skills to create a form of effective software tools that are able to manage the resources of computer technology optimally. Students also study the theoretical foundations of classical and modern methods of research relationships between the factors in the economic system, building models.
