The professional study programme of computer system maintenance is intended for students who want to acquire knowledge and competences necessary to use and maintain computer systems with the application in different fields, from business automation to built-in computers for control of various industrial and energy processes.
The study programme qualifies the students to perform activities in supporting computer introduction into various segments of business processes and computer system maintenance activities, such as: selection and configuration of computer and software support according to the business process requirements, support in the development of software support, database management, configuration and maintenance of computer networks, configuration and maintenance of operational systems, control of computer systems and data security (protection against unauthorized access, planning of data back-up copies), and configuration and maintenance of computers for control and management in industrial, energy and other processes.
Computer system maintenance is a study programme that provides professional orientation with substantial practical work incorporated in the syllabus. Since there is an especially marked shortage of experts in computer system maintenance who would be the connection between the information system designers, specialists for certain hardware or software technologies and the users of information systems themselves, a programme has been created for the education of experts in information technologies whose competences meet the requirements of today’s market.
The study syllabus has been designed so that it represents in equal shares the subjects in the field of design of information systems, software and hardware technologies, which is especially significant for the future computer systems maintenance engineers, who are today among the most required profiles of computer science orientation on the market in Croatia and worldwide.
After having completed the professional study programme of Computer Systems Maintenance, the students acquire knowledge and competences required for work in the field of computer system maintenance and computer users support.
The baccalaureus / baccalaurea of this study programme is qualified for independent solving of professional problems regarding planning, development, implementation of computer systems and their safety and security.
