Profile

The two-year study area COMMUNICATIONS AND INFORMATICS (M-TIT) in the master’s degree programme at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication (FEEC) BUT aims to educate MSc graduates with a profound theoretical understanding and practical knowledge of modern telecommunications and information technologies who are also qualified in light-current electronics and communication technology and are able to apply this knowledge in design of new appliances and systems. The core courses include subjects in theoretical and practical information technology, multimedia, communication technology and electronics.
The study of this branch can be commenced only after the students have successfully completed the bachelor’s degree programme and passed the bachelor’s final state examination, preferably in a programme oriented towards electrical engineering or information technology.
Instruction in this branch of study is ensured primarily by the Department of Telecommunications (ÚTKO). The offer of optional courses along with an individual technical project and the thesis enable students to focus more closely on the area of mobile and fixed communications, metallic, optical or wireless networks, modern network technology appliances, telecommunication services, multimedia, internet technologies and their services, security methods and high-speed multimedia transmission. Students are also introduced to knowledge of digital filters, signal processors, multimedia signal processing and design of electronic circuits and systems. The graduates will be able to work with user interfaces, use parallel processes in operation systems and ensure security of information systems. Depending on their individual choice, students will be thoroughly acquainted with digital methods of processing and transmission of speech, sound and image signals. They will be introduced to the design and realization of computer networks, database systems and distributed applications so as diverse information technologies. In order to improve the students’ understanding of theory, courses within theoretical extension in higher Mathematics and Physics are provided. Students can also choose technical courses in other study areas in the master’s degree programme at FEEC BUT, language and general knowledge courses.

Key learning outcomes

The graduate will possess detailed knowledge in the field of communication and information technologies. He is both well-provided with theoretical knowledge of communication and information systems and familiar with their design, the electronic design itself, applications, services, surveillance and measuring systems. The spectrum of his theoretical and practical knowledge embraces properties of transmitted multimedia signals and data, their processing and subsequent technical realization of communication and information systems. He is familiar with the structure and provision of various services in mobile and fixed communication and computer networks.
The graduate is qualified to solve problems of communication and information technologies. He is sufficiently knowledgeable in problems of related radio communication design, instrumentation and applications of microelectronic circuits. Thanks to the good theoretical foundations coupled with sufficiently universal education in applications-oriented studies he can be expected to accommodate to all concrete requirements of his future professional practice also in other areas of electronics and electrical engineering.
Graduates in this branch of MSc studies will find application in the research, development, design and operation of challenging communication and information technologies. They can participate in the development of new generations of services in classical and mobile communication and computer networks. In addition to their technical knowledge of problems, they will be prepared to perform higher executive and managerial functions. Their sufficient theoretical education provides the required basis for possible enlargement of their knowledge in doctoral studies.
