Web portals utilize internet technologies to transfer information to their visitors and support them to complete their tasks. Since only a web browser is required by the user to access the web application, web portals are first class citizens in the world of modern communication infrastructures. An additional benefit is that with the spreading of wireless networks and the evolution of mobile devices, web services become accessible from anywhere, at any time.
There are numerous educational, research and development projects in the field of web development at the Department of Automation and Applied Informatics.
In our education activities, beyond the introduction of modern frameworks, the current questions of web security, performance-centric design, search engine friendly implementation and user friendly interface concepts also get strong emphasis.
Our main research scope is focused on the latest web technology trends, ethical hacking and performance analysis of web applications, in which fields a PhD thesis, several articles, book chapters and presentations were published.
We gain our real world programming experience in industry-leading development projects which we share with our students in regular university courses. Our professionals plan, design, prototype and implement complete software solutions in these projects. Besides, Microsoft technologies (ASP.NET WebForms, MVC, Silverlight) we often use open-source software and emerging new standards, like HTML5 and CSS3, as well.
In the last few years we were invited speakers of numerous industry conferences and most of us are recognized as Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals.
