The Department of Applied Electronics guarantees teaching in the Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes Applied Electronics and Automotive Electronic Systems and in the Doctoral degree programme Electrical Engineering. Within the guaranteed study programmes for the field of applied electronics, teaching takes place in subjects focused on analogue technology, power electronics, electric controlled drives and microprocessor technology. For the field of automotive electronics, these are courses focusing on modelling and simulation of automotive systems, sensor systems, automotive electronics and diagnostics. Project-oriented teaching is also applied in the study.
The aim of the three-year Bachelor of Applied Electronics programme is to train Bachelors as university-educated operational specialists in all areas of electrical engineering with a basic knowledge of relevant theory and practical skills. The graduate has the option of continuing his/her studies in electrical engineering or other related master's degree programmes.
Automotive Electronic Systems
The programme focuses mainly on the field of automotive electronic systems (AES) with respect to AES hardware architecture such as hardware design and development, reverse engineering and others, AES measurement and testing, AES software resources (software development, software processes, programming, data processing and others), AES computer security and reliability methods, quality management in AES development, AES software quality. The teaching emphasizes the practical part of the teaching, which is an essential part in project-oriented teaching (especially from the third semester onwards) and in the implementation of bachelor theses in connection with industrial practice.
Continuing Master's studies
The Master's degree programme in Applied Electronics focuses on independent creative activity in sub-areas of electrical engineering, including industrial electronics, power electronics and electric drives. The study is therefore aimed at deepening the theoretical basis of electrical engineering disciplines and at a more detailed introduction to modern knowledge in closer focus, which is followed by the topic of the diploma thesis. The Master's degree allows students to build on related Bachelor's degree programmes offered at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Informatics of the VŠB-TUO and other universities.
Automotive electronic systems
Based on the requirements of professional practice in the automotive industry, especially the level and scope of knowledge, the aim of this programme is to steadily educate graduates with knowledge of advanced hardware structures and software solutions for automotive electronic systems. There are also strong requirements for knowledge of specific software tools used in the development of these systems. The professional courses are thus designed with the necessary knowledge and requirements of professional practice in mind. The teaching is designed to be project-oriented, which means that students will work in study groups to solve specific assignments defined by industry partners. Project solutions in the Master's programme will also take place at the partners' workplaces. In particular, we are talking about the development and testing departments.
The PhD programme in Electrical Engineering is focused on scientific research and independent creative activity in various sub-areas of electrical engineering, including industrial electronics, automotive electronics, power electronics, electrical machines and devices, and electrical drives. Therefore, the study is aimed at deepening the theoretical basis of electrical engineering disciplines and furthermore at detailed acquaintance with modern knowledge in a narrower focus, which is followed by the topic of the doctoral dissertation. The doctoral studies allow students to build on the master's degree programmes offered at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science of VŠB-TUO.
