Brief Description of the Institution
Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava is a modern educational and scientific institution. Since its foundation in the year 1937 more than 125.000 students have graduated there. In average, 19.000 students study at the STU every year.
At present, STU consists of seven faculties that provide research in a number of research departments and several centres of excellence following a long-term strategy when the priority areas are biotechnology and biocompatibility; sustainable resources and development: energy and raw materials; sustainable resources and development: environment, landscape and urbanism; nanotechnology, nanosciences and multifunctional intelligent materials; information society technologies; life, health and environment; safety, reliability and quality.
All the STU faculties provide study in accredited study programmes within the complex system of bachelor, master and PhD study. Faculties realise credit system compatible with the European credit transfer system enabling mutual mobility of students within European Union member countries and a larger European space. In the area of scientific and research activities the STU successfully joins European Union programmes.
Institute of Computer Systems and Networks provides education and scientific research in areas of wired, wireless and mobile networks, software defined networks, content delivery networks, VoIP, HBB, IMS, architecture, security, design and testability of digital systems and embedded systems. The Institute is also part of CISCO academy.
The Institute was successful in leading and being part of several national and international projects, including 7FP project HBB-Next which was focused onto hybrid television, multimodal control and user identification. It has living cooperation with several commercial companies in area of telecommunications, digital television, financial services and others.
