Information about the Organization:
Interfaculty Studies in Computer Science Applications is an interfaculty Unit at the Warsaw Agricultural University (SGGW), the oldest agricultural academic school in Poland and one of the first in the world. It offers course in Computer Sciences and Econometrics as a 6 semester first level program leading to BC degree in Computer Sciences and Econometrics or a 4 semester second level program leading to MSc degree in Computer Sciences and Econometrics. The course in computer Computer Sciences and Econometrics is desined to teach aspects of econometrics as well as computer aided management in agriculture. The students who study Computer Sciences and Econometrics acquire thorough knowledge of computational tools used in econometrics and skills needed for effective management in agriculture, especially in view of the challenges connected with the presence of Poland in EU.
The graduates have skills of building integrated computer systems on the basis of available tools as well as skills of modifying already existing systems.
The basic knowledge that students gain during first level course covers foundations of econometrics and econometric models. It covers also foundations of economics, and methods of econometric models analysis as well as modern multivariate analysis of economic processes both in static and dynamic form.
Thanks to interdisciplinary nature of the course, the teaching process is done by scientists representing various faculties of SGGW, other Warsaw Universities and also by visiting professors from abroad.
Much of the teaching is done in computer laboratories which are equipped with brand new software and hardware and have direct access to Internet. This is a very flexible course, enabling students to study Computer Science and Mathematics in combination with a wide range of other subjects.
Interfaculty Studies in Applications of Computer Sciences has been supporting the teaching process by e-learning for a few years now. The experience gained in that area resulted in organizing an international conference in 2005 "e-Learning - a challenge for temporary education". Also the Third International Conference on Information Technology in Business - ITIB 2006 took place in Warsaw in June, 2006. Regular workshops on Bioinformatics have been organized by Interfaculty Studies in Computer Science Applications for two years now and take place in May 2007.
A Stock Exchange School under auspices of Warsaw Stock Exchange organizes regular courses with help of the Interfaculty Studies in Applications of Computer Sciences.
Main Objectives and Tasks in the Project:
INTERFACULTY STUDIES IN APPLICATIONS OF COMPUTER SCIENCES (MSZI), is the coordinating institution of the project. It will supervise the project, will plan the tasks and activities of the partners, and will provide IT service of the project as well as website of the project.

Project title: IT Education as an activating factor of adults from areas under danger of unemployment
General information about the project
The project concerns adults who are looking for a job because they are unemployed or would like to change their present occupation but due to various reasons, especially connected with their environment, face difficulties in finding a job. The project program is aimed at people living in various weakly urbanized environments: countryside and small towns. The accomplishment of the project is a multistep program. Based on statistical data, in the initial phase of a project, target regions were defined and essential contacts with local representatives were made. The courses to be accomplished in the first step of the project were determined and their programs prepared:
Two of the above courses have already been carried out in a traditional way by the institutions that prepared the programs. After translating into national languages of the project partners the courses will be carried out in all participating countries. The accomplishment of the project will be based on blended learning, i. e., will involve traditional and modern teaching methods connected with IT. Due to the peculiarity of the project the main stress will be put on distant learning. Therefore in the second stage of the project the courses will be implemented on the e-learning platform Moodle, adjusted to the requirements of the project. In the final stage of the project all courses will be available on the e-learning platform Moodle and can serve as a support to traditional courses offered e. g., by Employment Agencies or can be treated as fully independent courses. As a supplement to courses, guides to courses and leaflets will be prepared.
The project is supported by European Commission as part of the Socrates Grundtvig 2 program (LLP).
