About program

The aim of the study is to educate interdisciplinary experts with a broad perspective, sufficient theoretical knowledge and good practical experience, who are able to follow with understanding, apply and develop modern technological trends in digitally oriented industry (Industry 4.0).

Thanks to mastering modern tools in the field of informatics and cybernetics, these experts can not only comprehensively apply, but also design conceptually new solutions for cyberphysical systems (CPS) for modern industrial production and thus strengthen the competitiveness of the Czech Republic. For the digitally oriented industry of the 21st century, graduates of this study program are equipped with knowledge and experience gained during project-oriented study - based on this equipment they can join project teams of developers and manufacturers of modern SW and HW tools or establish innovative companies coming up with new solutions in design and application of systems that monitor and collect data from physical industrial processes, provide global access to this data and significantly expand the functionality and competitiveness of manufacturing companies.

Connecting these systems to the virtual environment of globally interconnected services and information systems opens a new era of innovation in the industry and offers original business platforms. Future cyberphysical systems will contribute to human safety, efficiency, comfort and health and will help address the key challenges of our society, such as an aging population, limited resources, mobility, the shift to renewable energy sources.

Graduate profile

The graduate, as a professional with an electrical qualification, within the scope of his professional competence:

  • It comes up with new concepts of integrating information technology into the digitally oriented industry in the form of cyberphysical (smart) systems (CPS).
  • It systematically integrates with a deep understanding of complex CPS systems based on the practical use of information technology.
  • Designs and implements modern CPS systems based on the application of information technology, including their control algorithms (Internet of Things).
  • Designs and implements modern technologically advanced methods of collecting and analyzing large data collections (Big Data).
  • Designs and implements the integration of modern means of increasing the energy efficiency of modern buildings (Smart Buildings).
Application

Graduates can work mainly in the field of conceptual design and automation of production lines and processes. They can conceptually solve problems related to hardware and software of cyberphysical systems in modern industry, they also master the basics of designing these systems.

Possible job positions: designer, programmer, architect of MAR systems, technologist of production lines.

The most important employers of graduates include engineering companies operating in the field of industrial automation, manufacturers of technological units, machines, devices, automotive systems, transport equipment, companies engaged in engineering activities in automation, measurement, development of embedded electronic systems, companies engaged in mechanical engineering, production of electronic products operating in the field of metallurgy and many others, where it is necessary to address the automation and digitization of production.

Due to the fact that the field is relatively broad and combines knowledge of cybernetics and informatics, graduates often find employment in companies dealing with information technology, communication technology, etc.

Composition of teaching

The bachelor's degree is 3 years. During each academic year, the student must obtain at least 60 credits, a total of 180 credits during the entire bachelor's study. The study load is evenly distributed. During each semester, the student obtains approximately 30 credits in compulsory and optional subjects. In the last year, the study load is reduced so that students can devote themselves sufficiently to their final work.
The student also has the opportunity to complete optional courses, which they enroll according to their preferences, to complete the required number of credits in individual semesters / years.

During the three-year study, the student completes:

  • Subjects of common electrical engineering basis - in the first year.
  • Professional technical subjects - students have been profiling themselves in them since the second year.

The final state examination has three parts:

  • defense of bachelor thesis oral exam
  • two areas in the range of subjects of the profiling basis:

Cybernetics - contains the following subjects:
Sensors and measurements; Signals and systems; Cybernetics; HW platforms I; HW platforms II; Virtual instrumentation I; Virtual instrumentation II.

Informatics - contains the subject of the following subjects:
Introduction to SW engineering; Object-oriented programming; Algorithms I; Operating system; Basics of machine learning; Computer security.

Possibility of further study

Graduates of the bachelor's study program Computer Systems for Industry in the 21st Century can continue their studies in the follow-up master's program Industry 4.0, which is a direct follow-up to this study program. Furthermore, students can continue in the doctoral study program Cybernetics.
