The purpose of the MSc by Research "Intelligent Information Systems" is to fill a significant gap in research training of young scientists by enhancing their ability to study, design, organize and implement research in Intelligent Information Systems. The proposed MSc is expected to have a decisive contribution to the theoretical and practical preparation of future PhD candidates and future IT scientists with a strong research background. To achieve this goal, the subject of student studies includes:

(a) during the first semester, a course that provides the necessary supplies for a researcher in Intelligent Information Systems, focusing on research methodologies and specialized topics in Intelligent Systems;

(b) in the second and third semesters, the selection of a research topic by each student under the supervision of a faculty member specializing in a specific subject, who will be responsible for the teaching and guidance of the student in all the necessary stages of research (literature review, critical selection, formulation of a research question, design and implementation of problem solving, evaluation of results and recognition of open issues for future solution.

In the last two semesters focus is given on writing scientific articles which should be submitted to one international conference and to one scientific journal with peer-review process.
