About program

The aim of the study program is to train experts in the field of control, information and measurement systems. Graduates are able to independently solve complex technical tasks in the design, implementation and maintenance of control, measurement and information systems.

The technical areas on which the study program is focused are currently undergoing rapid development. Concepts such as production digitization, Industry 4.0, automation, robotics are key trends in the industry. Graduates of the study program will be able to meet the requirements of companies in these areas. This is due to the structure of the study plans of the program, which combines both the field of cybernetics, measurement, electronics, signal processing, and the field of application software development. Thus, the graduate not only masters the so-called lower level of control characterized by various means of automation or measurement technology, but also masters the higher level of control characterized by software means, human-machine interface, including application software for control systems. Thus, the combination of knowledge is in great demand on the labor market and is unique.

The study program is based on three pillars:

  • The theoretical basis of the program is mathematics.
  • The basic theoretical subjects of the profiling basis are focused on the field of cybernetics, measurement and signal processing.
  • The subjects of the profiling basis are divided into three blocks, which form a set of suitably connected subjects. The student must choose one block.

The profiling base blocks are as follows:

  • Industrial automation - this block is suitable for students whose main priority is the application of means of industrial automation and robotics.
  • Computers and information systems in control - this block is suitable for students whose main priority is embedded control systems, design of own electronics based on microprocessor technology, creation of application software for these devices.
  • Measuring and testing systems - this block is suitable for students who want to deal in more detail with measuring technology and virtual instrumentation.

These basic areas of the study program are further supplemented by a wide range of optional subjects, within which the student has the opportunity to compile his / her study plan according to his / her preferences.

Within the study of the program, emphasis is placed on the graduates being able to systematically solve complex tasks, master the engineering approach, work in a team and be able to work with various sources of information.

Graduate profile

Graduates of the field are university-educated electrical engineers with knowledge of industrial automation, computer systems, microprocessor technology, robotics and information systems. This knowledge is supported by a good theoretical foundation in mathematics, theoretical electrical engineering, the theory of automatic control and measurement.

Graduates are profiled in the areas of:

  • Automation and robotics - subjects are suitably designed so that the student obtains as much information as possible in the field of industrial automation, industrial communications and the basics of robotics. The range of knowledge should provide the graduate with good applicability to employers dealing with industrial control systems.
  • Computers and information systems in control - in this specialization, emphasis is placed on embedded control systems based on microprocessors and computer information systems. Graduates are prepared to work for employers engaged in the development of microprocessor and information systems.
  • Virtual instrumentation and measurement - the composition of the subjects profiles the graduate in the field of virtual instrumentation, automated measurement and testing systems.

Graduates are able to adapt and apply in solving professional problems in various fields of electrical engineering and computer science. Graduates are able to systematically solve complex tasks, master the engineering approach, work in a team and have been able to work with various sources of information. They are mainly used in the development and design of control and information systems in all areas of human activity, their implementation in practice and maintenance. Graduates are also employed in the field of research and development of measuring and control technology and information technology for management and their production, in the field of services, transport, etc. A significant advantage of graduates is the fact that they are well equipped with knowledge in both electronics and information systems. and can effectively connect these areas.


The employability of graduates on the labor market is excellent. The number of graduates currently cannot cover the requirements of companies.

Typical employers of program graduates are:

  • Companies engaged in engineering activities in the field of automation, measurement, development of embedded electronic systems.
  • Companies engaged in engineering production, 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 electrical engineering and computer science, graduates often find employment in companies dealing with information technology, communication technology, etc.
Composition of teaching

Follow-up master's study is 2 years. During each academic year, the student must obtain at least 60 credits, a total of 120 credits during the entire follow-up 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 he enrolls according to his preferences, in order to complete the required number of credits in individual semesters / years.

Students acquire expertise primarily during the study of compulsory and optional subjects of theoretical and profiling basis.

The final state examination has three parts:

  • Thesis defense.
  • The oral exam from the subject Cybernetics includes areas mainly from the field of cybernetics and other related theoretical subjects profiling the basis.
  • The oral exam from the subject Control and Information Systems includes areas of knowledge from the subjects of the profiling basis. During the study, the student always chooses at least one block of profiling subjects, which then forms the content of the state subject.
Possibility of further study

Graduates of the master's program Control and Information Systems can continue in the accredited doctoral study program Cybernetics.
