We live in the information age. Information technology changes civilization deeper and faster than any technology in the past. The importance of information is very broad - it covers the technology of the internet, the possibility of accessing enormous quantities of data, the ease of communication, entertainment, learning, and business.

All this is built on the basic ideas of the information theory, which we will learn during this course. We will explain how to measureinformation, how to efficiently store and share it, how to protect it against errors in the media, and how to prevent intruders to get use of it. We will also see how modern applications incorporate the foundations of information theory.

Practical classes are mandatory and are being assessed. During the practical courses it is necessary to solve five problems that are related to ideas treated in theoretical classes. The practical part makes up to 1/3 of the final grade. During the semester two mid-term exams are organized which bring you up to 1/6 of the final grade. The last 1/2 of the final grade is obtained from written and oral exam. In the case of good results from the mid-term exams, the final written and oral exam are optional.
