Study aims

The objectives of the master's program Telecommunications (MPA-TEC) are to acquire and extend theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of design, construction, operation and application of electronic circuits and systems in various fields of low-current electronics and communication technologies. The spectrum of this study area is from low-frequency technology, high-frequency and microwave technology to optical waves, from analog circuits, signals and systems, to digital, microprocessor and embedded systems with a detailed focus on applications in radiocommunication services and communication technologies.


Graduate profile

The graduate of the master's program Telecommunications (MPA-TEC) has a good knowledge of the design, construction, operation and application use of electronic circuits and systems in various fields of general low-current electronics and electronic communication technologies. Their knowledge ranges from low-frequency, high-frequency and microwave technology to optical waves. The graduate is qualified in the field of radioelectronics, mobile and other electronic communications, instrumentation electronics, audio and video, analogue and digital processing of multimedia signals.

Profession characteristics

The graduates of the master's program Telecommunications (MPA-TEC) have a profound knowledge of telecommunications theory, design, construction, application and measurement of electronic circuits and systems. The graduates of this study area find employment in research, development, construction and operation of highly sophisticated light-current electronic appliances used broadly, above all in communication and navigation services and systems, in radio, television and other electronic media services. In all of these areas, they can also assume higher executive and management positions.

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:
102 credits in compulsory courses,
9 credits in compulsory elective (PV) courses,
9 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.

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.
