The aim of the course is to provide students with a broad overview of the basic fields of informatics and cybernetics, which form the basis for further study of information technology. Study subject aims to build students' knowledge of the general principles of cybernetics and computer science and the ability to understand the terminology.

The course assumes knowledge of basic processes of algorithms and data structures that are within the subject being associated with the general principles of computer science and paradigms.
