General information

The first stage of education at The Faculty of Information Technology of PJAIT comprises undergraduate studies offered in three modes:

  • full-time (day) – three and a half years (studies in Polish or in English)
  • part-time (weekend) four years (studies in Polish)
  • part-time internet-base (extramural)  four years (studies in Polish or in English)

Students attend lectures and classes. The latter are held in small 16-person groups, with a computer for every student, in case of a computer lab class. Diploma courses have dedicated labs with special software and hardware.



The curriculum is composed of two types of subjects:    

  • basic knowledge obligatory for all students
  • specialised knowledge related to specialisations chosen by students.

The first four semesters of the full-time studies (and the first six of the part-time studies) are devoted to core instruction. At this stage, the student gains the fundamental knowledge required of a bachelor-level graduate in computer science. S/he is familiarised with issues such as basic database techniques, principles of software development, and computer network development as well as applications of multimedia. Above all, the candidate learns to program in key languages such as Java or C++. The curriculum also includes core mathematics, electronics, accounting, economics, and law.

During the subsequent specialised instruction, students choose a major (area of specialisation) in which to further expand their knowledge and skills. Specialised classes are customised for each major; examples include programming in languages such as Prolog, ML, Assembler, C# or SQL. Furthermore, specialised instruction aims to build up the student’s team-working skills through, among others, implementation of specific projects.

Graduates receive the Engineer degree.


First-cycle studies lead to education in the following fields:

Software and database engineering;
Cybersecurity, system and network programming;
Intelligent data processing systems;
Mobile networking;
Multimedia – 3D animation;
Multimedia – game programming;
Data warehousing;
Programming of business applications.

First-cycle studies also emphasize the acquisition of practical teamwork skills, e.g. through the implementation of specific projects.

General study conditions

Students of all faculties have access to modern laboratories, specialized IT, graphic and design studios. The university provides over 600 computers in 40 laboratories equipped with unique equipment and the latest software on the market. Thanks to license agreements signed with companies from the IT industry, students have constant access to updates and the latest versions of the software.

Exercises and laboratory classes are held in small 16-person groups. During classes in computer labs, each student has a separate computer at their disposal. Students preparing their diploma theses have unlimited access to the academy laboratories.

Education also takes place in multimedia laboratories, which include: a professional audio recording studio, a graphics laboratory equipped with GreenBox, a sound production laboratory, etc. Students also have at their disposal a professional photo studio, painting studio, graphic arts studio, etc.

Throughout the course of the studies, the academy provides intensive study of English and, optionally, Japanese. PJAIT is the only official examination center in Poland that allows you to obtain a recognized worldwide certificate in the Japanese language. It is also possible to choose another foreign language in higher semesters. Information on learning foreign languages can be found on the PJAIT Centre of Foreign Languages website.

The entire campus is covered with a wireless Wi-Fi network that allows you to use the Internet with mobile devices. In addition, the university is a member of the Eduroam confederation, thanks to which students can use wireless Internet at many universities around the world.
