Study aims

Studijní program je zaměřen na výchovu inženýra - mikroelektronika se širokým základem v oblasti teorie, návrhu a technologie integrovaných obvodů, elektronických systémů a přístrojů pro využití v nejrůznějších oblastech elektroniky a elektrotechniky. Student se může zaměřit zejména na návrh a počítačovou simulaci integrovaných obvodů, návrh elektronických systémů a aplikací mikroelektronických obvodů pro přístrojovou techniku, na technologii integrovaných obvodů, technologii elektronických systémů, návrh a výrobu plošných spojů, technologii povrchové montáže, testovací a měřicí techniku. Student získává i související poznatky z informačních a komunikačních technologií. Absolventi tohoto magisterského studia se uplatní zejména v oblastech návrhu, vývoje a výroby elektronických a elektrotechnických přístrojů, zařízení a systémů, zakázkových integrovaných obvodů a polovodičových součástek, systémů na deskách s plošnými spoji s povrchovou montáží. Cílem programu je rovněž příprava absolventů schopných samostatně řešit náročné technické úkoly v obchodní a servisní činnosti u uživatelů nejrůznějších elektronických zařízení. Výuku odborných předmětů zajišťuje především Ústav mikroelektroniky (UMEL) FEKT VUT v Brně.

The study program is focused on the education of engineers - microelectronics with a broad basis in the theory, design and technology of integrated circuits, electronic systems and devices for use in various fields of electronics and electrical engineering. The student can focus mainly on the design and computer simulation of integrated circuits, design of electronic systems and applications of microelectronic circuits for instrumentation, integrated circuit technology, electronic systems technology, design and manufacture of printed circuit boards, surface mounting technology, testing and measuring technology. The student also acquires related knowledge of information and communication technologies. Graduates of this master's degree will be employed mainly in the areas of design, development and production of electronic and electrical devices, equipment and systems, custom integrated circuits and semiconductor components, systems on printed circuit boards with surface mounting. The aim of the program is also the preparation of graduates able to independently solve demanding technical tasks in business and service activities for users of various electronic devices. The teaching of specialized subjects is provided mainly by the Institute of Microelectronics (UMEL) FEEC BUT.

Graduate profile

The graduate has detailed knowledge in the field of design and technology of integrated circuits, electronic systems and devices for use in various fields of electronics and electrical engineering, knowledge of analog and digital signals, materials and manufacturing processes, especially focusing on microelectronics and applications of electronic circuits and systems. . The student qualifies more closely: design and computer simulation of integrated circuits, design of electronic systems and applications of microelectronic circuits for instrumentation, integrated circuit technology, electronic systems technology, design and manufacture of printed circuit boards, surface mounting technology, testing and measuring technology, economics and organization of production, optionally also knowledge from information and communication technologies.
The graduate is qualified in the design, simulation, technology, production and applications of integrated circuits, in the design, technology and applications of electrical equipment, instrumentation, testing and measurement technology, analog and digital signal processing. Thanks to a sufficiently broad basis of application-oriented study, a high adaptability of the graduate to all specific requirements of his future professional practice is ensured, even in other areas of electronics and electrical engineering.

Profession characteristics

Graduates of the Microelectronics program will find employment as specialists - microelectronics and technologists in various areas of design and production of integrated circuits and electrical equipment, in the design, operation, service and maintenance of demanding electronic and electrical equipment, devices and systems, or. in other areas. In all these areas, they are also able to perform higher technical-managerial and managerial functions.

Study plan creation

Courses are evaluated according to ECTS credits. The credit expresses an approximate weekly student's workload for the course. Credits for a given course are obtained after the prescribed completion, i.e. after awarding a credit, classified credit, or by passing an exam under the conditions of the BUT Rules of Study and Examination, the internal standard of the Rules for Organization of Studies at FEEC and the composition and content individually defined in each course.
In a two-year master study, the student must earn at least 120 credits in the specified credit composition:
63 credits in compulsory courses,
51 credits in compulsory elective (PV) courses,
6 credits in elective courses,

Obligatory courses are usually completed by the student in semesters and years as stated in the curriculum. If a student fails to complete a compulsory course in the prescribed manner, he / she must register it again in the following year of his / her studies.
Compulsory elective courses of profiling fundamentals (PVA) are field-oriented professional courses that profile the student into narrower areas of his / her interests.
Other compulsory (PVB) courses are other professional courses included in the offers of the departments of FEEC BUT. Their goal is to extend students' professional knowledge.
The student chooses to select PV courses in individual semesters so that at the end of his / her bachelor's degree he / she has at least the prescribed minimum of credits in each group of PV courses, while not obtaining the minimum number of credits in one group of PV courses cannot be compensated by exceeding the number of credits obtained in another group of PV courses.
Elective courses extend the general knowledge of students. Courses are chosen by the student himself or herself from a full-faculty offer (FEEC departments) or from the other faculties of VUT (so-called free courses) and can pass them in any year or semester of master study. Elective courses include Physical Education. If a student has not successfully completed an elective course, he / she may or may not write another academic year in the next academic year.
Students must obtain the corresponding electrotechnic qualification at the beginning of their study. Students who begin their study in the year 2020/21 and later, have to fulfil one subject in English for successful study graduation, according to the Guideline BUT To education of foreign languages.

Availability for the disabled

All lecture rooms at the FEEC BUT allow disabled access; students, however, must meet the medical standards to acquire the necessary electrotechnical qualifications. In laboratory classes and practicals, students are required to independently operate measuring instruments and related equipment without endangering human health or damaging property.

What degree programme types may have preceded

The graduates may continue in a doctoral study programme.
