subject title

Management of Digital Transformation

Digitalization and the associated technological breakthroughs offer enormous challenges and opportunities. Against this background, companies are faced with the question: How can competitive advantages be achieved and maintained in the “age of digital transformation”? The theory-based and action-oriented course gives students an insight into digital core technologies that drive the digital transformation of society and equips them with digital decision-making strategies and frameworks.

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to (1) explain why and how digital technologies have an impact on companies’ business models, (2) explain why and how companies effectively integrate digital technologies and some are more successful than others, (3) systematically choose between different approaches to assess the potential of digital technologies and to implement and use them in companies.

This course can be attended by Bachelor students or Master students in the Joint Master degree.

Programming II

Programming 2 extends the contents of Programming 1 to design mid-size programs, to learn programming tools, and to introduce the basics of the object-oriented paradigm.

This subject is given after Programming 1, and it is related to Fundamentals of Databases. It is also the basis for Programming 3, Programming and Data Structures, Algorithm Analysis and Design, and Database Design.

Principles of Databases

Foundations of Databases is a basic course that develops concepts presented in Programming 1 and Mathematics 1 and introduces the basics of databases, critical to the effective and efficient management software, including development and many other areas benefiting from its power and versatility.

It is also the first subject that opens the way to design Databases (2nd year) and, in general, to all subsequent courses dealing with design and management of large volumes of information and its integration into the structure company.

Computer Architecture

The Computer Architecture course forms part of the knowledge pertaining to the branch known as Architecture and Technology of Computers, branch among other things explains the operation of computers as computing machines.

This course is one of the key subjects in relation to the study of computer architectures and together with the courses of Computer Fundamentals and Computer Structure, complete aspects of theory, abstraction, and design of the area.

Its location and characterization as mandatory in the syllabus make it a course that explores various concepts introduced in Computer Structure, but considering that, while in the latter the computer is studied from the point of view of their functional units, in Computer Architecture the study is approached from a higher level, from an engineering perspective and considering issues related to the design, evaluation and strategies to increase performance while it serves as basis for the accomplishment of these objectives in the course of Computer Engineering.

The previous courses (Computer Fundamentals and Computer Structure) that students had to attend, expect that they reach the course with a reasonable knowledge base about architectures that, in any case, is necessary to analyse, consolidate, formalize and illustrate with specific implementations and designs, approaching that from a broader perspective, introducing, at the same time, new performance enhancing techniques.

Software System Design

The development of a software system involves making decisions about how the development will be organized and planned throughout the project’s life cycle. Agile development methodologies allow realistic planning, which allows taking changes minimizing their impact on the development of the system, while ensuring the quality of developed software.

This course will implement some of the most widespread practices in agile development of applications, by developing group projects using the methodologies reviewed in the lectures. It will also provide insight into the software modelling techniques seen in previous courses, with special emphasis on creating robust and flexible designs by applying design patterns.

To successfully follow the subject, it is recommended to have good knowledge of object-oriented programming and basic knowledge of UML.

Advanced Software Development

This subject helps the student to develop applications in a simple and efficient way. The student will learn programming concepts for developing graphical applications and will use tools for that aim. S/he will have to do individual assignments as well as a group assignment consisting of a Web application.

In the development of the Web application the student will learn how to plan and organize projects, and will understand the importance of effective working techniques, negotiating with the other members of the group and communication and leadership abilities. The students will apply the theoretical concepts explained: designing a Web application in a efficient way using libraries for their reuse, connecting the application with a database and using a control version system.

It relies on the concepts acquired on previous courses.

Geospatial technologies

This is an introductory course that aims to introduce students to geoinformation technologies and their application for various purposes. The scope of geoinformation technologies includes GIS, Remote Earth Monitoring and Survey Methods and Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS). It is also envisaged that students will have the opportunity to acquire basic practical skills for working with these technologies.

Geographic Information Systems – II (advanced)

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are one of the leading technologies of our time. Through GIS we are collecting, processesing, analyzing and visualizing geospatial data and generating geospatial information, which is a critical resource in the preparation of decision-making in the planning and management of the territory. The current course is at the “advanced” level, aiming to provide knowledge and practical skills for the development of geodatabases, analytical methods in GIS, as well as the ability to publish and access geospatial information via the Internet.
