This specialisation may be studied in specific detail during the last two semesters.

  • Computer network engineering

A specialisation that will prepare you to work as an administrator, a person managing, maintaining and designing IT infrastructure, in particular virtual solutions (virtualisation platforms), distributed, cloud solutions and those adapted to work in the Data Center.

Become an IT engineer!




Experts say:


Robert Wiśniewski
Project Manager,
“Students and graduates of Information Technology took part in two recruitment processes that we conducted. From the first minutes of a job interview, we knew we wanted to work with them. They stand out from other candidates owing to their mature approach to work, practical knowledge and high motivation. In both cases, we are very pleased with the results they achieve and with how quickly they develop.”


In the context of embedded systems, students learn how to programme Arduino devices that form part of the IoT (Internet of Things) technology – namely microcomputers controlling devices of everyday use.

Study and practice!

Collegium Da Vinci works in close agreement with Talex SA business.

The outcome is practice and internship program that raise the attractiveness of a student, and later students graduate on the labor market through learning in direct contact with practice in Talex SA business.

Being a graduate lets you start your work not as an amateur but experienced specialist, which with ease finds yourself in the structures of a company and at once effectively realizes his duties!

Why Talex?

We found a partner, for whom human resources training is a crucial part of business culture, big enough to satisfy expectations of our students with variety of offer and simultaneously being a local company that thinks of people in individualized way. In Talex SA we met interesting people that like what they do and do it extremely well.

How does it work?

We offer you a complex practice and internship program in Talex SA business:

• Starting with the first semester, one day a week you will spend in Talex SA headquarters learning the specifics of different workplaces and realizing specific tasks in the cooperation with the company team. The rest of the days are realized at CDV according to the schedule.

Those students that are not interested in the practice and internship program in Talex SA business have the possibility to choose the place of their practices themselves starting with the second semester. These can be other partners or businesses in the fields of study.

Studying in the field of computer science ends with a diploma thesis, realized as a team project, with practical application. It's not just a perfect entry to a portfolio, but it's also a perfect moment to summarize your skills and competences.

If you have any inquiries about the program, please contact Dr. Eng. Janina Rudowicz-Nawrocka

*Full-time study program aimed at IT students

CDV Rector, Krzysztof Nowakowski, PhD, Eng.,
an Information Technology lecturer at CDV

“Having carefully analysed the expectations of the labour market and employers, we have developed a unique offer of specialisations and extremely practical studies. Our staff is composed of a team of experienced practitioners and experts, who provide our students with a balanced development of knowledge, skills and IT competencies such as communication skills, teamwork abilities and entrepreneurship. Cooperation with partners such as Microsoft and IBM guarantees the use of the latest developments, tools and technologies in the course of study - and it's absolutely free.”

Arkadiusz Majewski
The owner of MEDIAKOMP FHU, a lecturer at CDV

“Students making both reports and projects during computer labs already at the beginning of their studies, as well as complex collaborative projects, are oriented to practical solutions related to the latest developments in computer science. They are eager to implement systems based on artificial intelligence, which is an extremely fast growing area in the IT industry. They work on living organisms, thus gaining experience, and face real problems.”

Radosław Małecki, Eng.
Junior Software Engineer, Samsung R&D Poland

“Engineering studies in Information Technology allowed me to gain knowledge and experience, which resulted in taking up a job immediately after graduation. Qualified staff and class schedule corresponding to today's reality are the main advantages of studying in CDV. It is possible to practically use skills gained, for instance in the Scientific Society of IT Specialists functioning in the major. It is exactly the work in this Society that allowed me to take part in the prestigious international competition Microsoft Imagine Cup. In addition, the university has attractive offers of paid internships and work placements, in which I also had the opportunity to participate. In my professional work, I use skills acquired during my studies, i.e. knowledge of object-oriented programming and software engineering.”
