Study aims

The three-year study area power electrical and electronic engineering in the bachelor's degree programme at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication (FEEC) BUT aims to educate field specialists with a good knowledge of theory, design, construction and application of electrotechnical components and systems in diverse areas of consumer and industrial electrical engineering. This branch of study also embraces power and control electronics including control of drives in automated production systems and computer control of power aggregates.
Instruction is ensured by the Department of Power Electrical and Electronic Engineering (UVEE) and the Department of Electrical Power Engineering (UEEN). A wide range of optional courses along with an individual technical project and the bachelor's final work enable students to focus on electric power engineering with an orientation towards the production from traditional and renewable sources, transmission and supply of electrical power including SmartGrids and use of lighting and heating technology or to focus on power electrical engineering including construction, building and production of electrical machines and appliances and other electrotechnical devices, and finally on design and realization of electrical control drives, power electronics appliances and complex industrial automatik. Moreover, students acquire relevant knowledge of applied informatics. In order to broaden their knowledge, they may choose inter-disciplinary courses offered in other study areas in the bachelor's degree programme at FEEC BUT and also language, economics, management and ecology courses.

Graduate profile

The graduates of power electrical and electronic engineering have a profound knowledge of electrical machines, appliances, drives and power electronics, they are familiar with areas of electric power engineering related to production, transmission, supply and use of electric power and have general knowledge of relevant study areas. A broad scope of application-oriented study ensures high adaptability of graduates to specific requirements of their future professions, also in other areas of power electronic and electrical engineering.

Profession characteristics

Graduates of the bachelor's program in Power Electrical and Electronic Engineering will find employment as operational specialists, especially in industry, but also in commercial and other companies, not only in electrical engineering. In all the above technical areas, they are also able to perform lower technical-managerial and managerial functions. The focus of higher education enables the direct deployment of graduates in production, operational or service technical practice and provides a good basis for the possible addition of theoretical knowledge in a possible follow-up master's study.

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 three-year bachelor study, the student must earn at least 180 credits in the specified credit composition:
151 credits in compulsory courses,
16 credits in specified groups of 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.
During the study, students must complete two English courses (English for Bachelors, English for Electrical Engineering).
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 bachelor 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 master's study programme.
