The professional study programme of Computer System Maintenance provides knowledge and skills necessary for the use and maintenance of computer systems with application in various fields, from automation of work to embedded computers for the control of various industrial and energy processes.
The study trains students to perform activities in supporting the introduction of computers into various segments of the business process and maintenance of computer systems, such as the selection and configuration of computers and software support according to the requirements of the business process, support in developing software support, database maintenance, configuring and maintaining computer networks, configuring and maintaining operating systems, control of computer and data security (security against unauthorized access, back-up planning), configuring and maintaining computers for control and management in industrial, energy supply and other processes.
Computer System Maintenance is a study programme that offers professional orientation with a substantial practical part of the lesson. The program of education of IT professionals whose competencies meet today’s market demands has been created due to the lack of IT systems specialists who serve as a connection between information system designers, specialists for certain hardware or software technologies and the information system users themselves.
The curriculum has been designed in such a way that it equally represents the courses in the field of information systems design, software and hardware technologies, which is of special significance for future engineers of computer system maintenance, who are today among the most required profiles of computer orientation on the market both in Croatia and in the world.
Upon graduation from the professional study programme Computer System Maintenance, the students acquire knowledge and skills necessary for computer system maintenance and end-user support.
The baccalaurea of this study are qualified for independent solving of professional problems of planning, development, implementation of computer systems and their security and protection.
