Study aims

The aims of the study of the follow-up master's program Electronics and Communication Technologies are to acquire and expand 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 professional areas of study ranges from low-frequency technology, through high-frequency and microwave technology to optical waves, from analog circuits, signals and systems, through digital to microprocessor and embedded systems with a detailed focus on applications in radiocommunication services and communication technologies.

Graduate profile

The graduate of the follow-up master's program Electronics and Communication Technology has quality knowledge in the field of design, construction, operation and application of electronic circuits and systems in various areas of general low-current electronics and electronic communication technologies. His knowledge ranges spectrally from low-frequency, through high-frequency and microwave technology to optical waves. The student is able to work with analog electronic circuits, signals and systems, as well as with modern digital, microprocessor and microcomputer circuits and systems. The graduate is qualified in the field of radio electronics, mobile and other electronic communications, instrumentation electronics, audio and video technology, analog and digital processing of multimedia signals. Thanks to a sufficiently broad basis of application-oriented study, a high adaptability of the graduate to the specific requirements of his future practice is ensured, even in other areas of electronics and electrical engineering. Graduates of the master's program will find employment as specialists - electronics in various areas of communication and other communication services, in the design, construction, operation, service and maintenance of demanding electronic equipment, devices and systems, in the operation and service of mobile, radio, television and more. electronic and communication services. In all these areas, they are also able to perform higher technical, managerial and managerial functions. Follow-up and more theoretically focused university education, but supplemented by significant practical knowledge, enables the direct deployment of graduates in research, development, as well as production, operational or service technical practice.

Profession characteristics

Graduates of the master's program have extensive knowledge in the theory, design, construction, application and measurement of electronic circuits and systems. Application-wise, the study is focused on the issue of wireless communications and communication technologies. The spectrum of knowledge ranges from low-frequency through high-frequency and microwave technology to the field of optical waves, from analog circuits and systems to digital circuits and microprocessor systems. Graduates of the master's program will be employed in research, development, construction and operation of highly demanding low-current electronic devices for general use, especially in the field of communication and navigation services and systems, mobile, radio and television networks and are also able to hold higher technical -management 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.
