The graduates will be able to apply this knowledge with respect to actual state of legislation and economic aspects of security products developed. The complex approach covering all aspects of modern information security makes it possible to provide students with education necessary not only for purely technical positions, but also for management and economical positions. The development of students’ language skills is also a strong priority, in particular the professional English is taught.

Profession characteristics

Graduates of the study program will find employment in the labor market mainly in technical positions focused on the design, construction and management of information and communication systems, such as telecommunications companies, operators or service providers in traditional and mobile communication networks, Internet connection providers and services and other entities. dealing with applied informatics, including the design and implementation of information systems. In all these areas, they are also able to perform lower technical-managerial and managerial functions. Highly practically oriented university education enables the deployment of graduates in production, operational or service technical practice. Emphasis is also placed on the language preparation of students, especially on professional English.

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:
133 credits in compulsory courses,
34 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.
