The online (part—time Internet-based) programme is completed remotely from any location in the world. All that is required is Web access. At the end of each semester, an examination session is held at PJAIT campus. For subjects which require work in real labs, stationary sessions are held at the PJIIT premises twice a year - September and February. Instruction is provided in Polish or English.
The first-cycle programme lasts for four years leading to the degree of bachelor (engineer) of Computer Science. After the first six semesters devoted to core instruction, students proceed to select their major (specialised area).
Transfers from traditional part-time courses to online courses and vice versa are allowed.
The programme is taught via the EDUX platform, with the use of remote instruction methodology. Each week, at a time of their choice, students participate in online sessions. For the sake of laboratory classes, two contact sessions lasting two weeks each are organised at the campus each semester. Students may also attend some lectures and classes given at the PJAIT on scheduled weekends (this is valid for candidates beginning their programme in October; in the case of those beginning in February, the programme does not match the weekend programme). Moreover, during the semester it is possible to arrange a tutorial (consultation) with the teachers of the Academy.
Progress is tested both online (quizzes, homework assignments) and directly, on the PJAIT campus (the exam). For the interested 1st-year students, an online catch-up course in mathematics is organised (unfortunately, only in Polish).
The profile of a graduate of the online programme is very similar to that of a full-time programme. The only difference is the greater emphasis on Internet technologies.
Students of the full-time and part-time (weekend) courses at PJAIT who have failed to pass a subject can re-take it online under the Individual Instruction (ITN) arrangement. This is valid for most subjects.
