## Computer Science programs at the Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science in Opole University

The Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science runs four programs in the field of computer science, two undergraduate and two graduate ones.

The undergraduate (first cycle) programs take either three or three and a half years and the graduates obtain the Licentiate*) of computer science or, respectively, ‘Inżynier’ of computer science degree.

The graduate Master’s programs take either two-years or one and a half years (for candidates with the ‘Inżynier’ degree) and the graduates obtain the degree of Master’s of Computer Science.

*) In Poland, the Licentiate degree corresponds to the Bachelor’s degree

### Licentiate program
