Specialties in the field of Computer Science:

  • Computer Science in Management (first-cycle studies – 7 semesters - Engi-neering Degree); which includes subjects in the area of construction and op-eration of modern information technologies, in particular in the field of methods, tools and systems supporting business management,
  • Business applications of IT are associated with the ability to practically use operational research and computer simulation methods implemented in ERP computer-integrated management systems. Graduates of this spe-cialization combine knowledge in the area of construction and operation of modern information technologies, with knowledge in the field of pro-duction engineering, quality engineering and knowledge engineering, as well as maintenance, distribution network design and logistics manage-ment. This knowledge is supported by knowledge of business process as-sessment and management methodologies (ITIL, CMMI), as well as knowledge of process modeling methods (UML, BPMN).
  • In turn, IT applications in the areas of planning and administration of production processes and services are related to the management of IN-FORMATION projects, in particular supply chain management. Empha-sis is placed on the ability to work in a team and the ability to convey and disseminate information, ideas, problems and solutions to both spe-cialists (i.e. a substantively diverse audience) and non-specialists (e.g. fu-ture clients or consumers). The acquired competences enable graduates to run a company independently or work as a consultant. These competenc-es enable proper assessment and interpretation of processes taking place in the company and its immediate environment, as well as effective and creative cooperation in teams, technology transfer and innovation, e.g. in the selection and implementation of project management methodologies (both classic ones such as PMI, PRINCE, RUP, as well as modern ones such as: Agile, Lean, SCRUM, XP).
  • Information Management Systems (IMS) (second-cycle studies – 3 semesters – Masters’ Degree); covering subjects related to, among others, management issues, typical solutions of IT systems used in management, design of DSS driven management systems of various classes, such as CRM, ERP, MRP and so  on. In addition to strictly IT subjects covering the methods of declarative programming and programming in the MATLAB environment, subjects shaping "soft" competences are also proposed. Students acquire skills in pro-ject management, human resource management, logistics management, etc.
  • In this profile, special emphasis is placed on the ability to work in pro-ject teams combining both IT implementation specialists and non-specialists (investors, clients) – and consequently shaping the ability to formulate, transfer and exchange acquired knowledge both in terms of the specificity of technical problems encountered and the methods used to solve them.
  • The specialization of IMS is in particular dedicated to graduates of engi-neering technical studies who have completed first-cycle studies in strict-ly IT specialties (e.g. computer programming, network management, In-ternet programming) and want to expand their competences, e.g. in the field of implementation and operation of IT systems, planning their ca-reer in management positions.

Description of the subject of scientific activity with a description of scien-tific laboratories and their research capabilities:

The profile of scientific interests of the Department's employees concerns the topics of scheduling multimodal cyclical processes, methods of estimating the costs of implementing ERP class systems, image processing, IT project man-agement, software design and modeling, synthesis of employee competence structures resistant to interference caused by, for example, employee absentee-ism, production of nano- and micro-layers on selected metals and alloys.

The scope of research includes:

  • robust to disruptions competency frameworks planning. The proposed proac-tive approach is to anticipate potential disruptions and protect against unde-sirable effects (e.g. delays, additional costs, etc.). For this purpose, the planned research is related to the development of the proprietary method of Competency Structure Planning (CSP), which is based on the competency structures robustness measure. In particular, research concerns support for the planning of project teams taking into account learning and forgetfulness;
  • production of nano- and micro-layers enriched with selected elements on light metals for applications as substrates for catalysts by Plasma Electrolytic Oxidation (PEO);
  • analysis of current signals to monitor PEO processes, their identification and process control;
  • research of original author’s method of Probabilistic Features Combination (PFC) that is used in reconstruction and prediction for two- and multidimen-sional data, based on modeling of unknown data by linear combination for two successive interpolation nodes via modeling function with calculated pa-rameter. Modeling function (power function, exponential, logarythmic, trig-onometric and cyclometric function) is a probabilistic distribution function of interpolated values situated between two successive interpolation nodes. Problems connected with these researches over applications of PFC are con-cerned on building and analysis of the method for reconstruction and predic-tion of multidimensional data;
  • synthesis of declarative models of routing, batching and scheduling prob-lems occurring in the course of production processes planning and control typical for automotive industry and household appliances industry as well as for supply chine networks. The research focuses on methods of analyzing the behavior of the above-mentioned systems (e.g. production flow, public transport schedules, UAVs mission planning, etc.) and synthesis of their structures (topology of the distribution networks, structure and organization of the rolling stock used in them, etc.). The models sought should enable the development of algorithms for rapid, online, prototyping of both alternative variants of the structure and the behavior of the analyzed systems. The con-ducted research focuses on methods of analyzing the behavior of the above-mentioned systems (e.g. production flow, public transport schedules, UAVs mission planning, etc.) and synthesis of their structures (topology of the network of connections, structure and organization of the rolling stock used in them, etc.). The models sought should enable the development of algo-rithms for rapid, online, prototyping of alternative variants of the structure and behavior of the analyzed systems;
  • synthesis of declarative models of Systems of the Concurrently Flowing Cyclic Processes (SCCP). The conducted research is focused on determining sufficient conditions, the fulfillment of which guarantees the existence of Cyclic Steady States (CSS) as well as transient states enabling their mutual reachability. The existence of transient states determines the ability to change the behavior of the system (i.e. the transition between different, permissible CSSs without having to stop its "work", i.e. it allows for a "smooth" transition between acceptable CSSs. Conditions of this type make it possible to develop a method of self-organization of SCCP, in particular in terms of their robustness to disturbances. The SCCP's resistance to disturbances disrupting the rhythm of its processes is understood here as its ability to move from the currently implemented and "disrupted" CSS to another, alternative CSS’ in order to later return to the previously implemented CPU.

Research conducted in the Laboratory of Applications of Programming Methods in the Logic of Constraints and classes conducted there include:

  • Business process management (BPM) and IT services, including those based on the ITIL  v. 3 (IT Infrastructure Library) standard;
  • Modeling of information systems in UML, BPMN languages;
  • Project management based on MS Project software, as well as MRP/MRPII/ERP class systems. Classes are conducted on the basis of li-censes of the following companies: proAlpha, Rekord and IFS;
  • As part of cooperation with the Gdańsk University of Technology and IBM CAS, the IBM Competence Center at the Koszalin University of Technology was established. Thanks to this, students specializing in Computer Science in Management and Information Management Systems carried out classes on the original Rational Team Concert software – participation confirmed by special Certificates.
