The aim is the education of specialized professionals, which develops successful graduates of their master's studies their ability to independently create creative work in the field of research, development and improvement of technologies. By further study of theoretical and applied subjects according to the individual study plan and elaboration of the doctoral dissertation, the student will demonstrate the ability to creatively expand the existing knowledge of the researched part of the studied program.
The Cybernetics program includes the use of a cybernetic approach in the analysis, modeling, and simulation and design of systems. He also applies theoretical knowledge of cybernetics to other areas.
Technical cybernetics as a main application area includes:
- Dynamic systems: control systems with feedback, state, stochastic and fuzzy description of systems, control algorithms, embedded and distributed control systems, etc.
- Information transmission: signal transmission and processing, sensors, measuring and information systems, industrial networks, information entropy, communication channel capacity, etc.
- Artificial intelligence: machine perception and learning, multi-agent systems, robotics, modeling and design of neural networks for control systems, human-machine coupling, expert systems, etc.
- Information technology for control systems: real-time operating systems, software design for real-time work, real-time SCADA systems, software for real-time communication, etc.
The program is designed to allow study in other application areas of cybernetics, which are based on the coexistence of electrical engineering, computer science and computational mathematics at the FEI and which intervene in many areas of human activity, such as biocybernetics: modeling and simulation of physiological processes, measurements, transmission, processing and sensors of biological signals and data, design of hardware and software for medical systems, etc. Other application areas are biomedical engineering, management (control theory), as well as informatics, bioinformatics, stochastic modeling using advanced statistical methods, etc.
The intention of the development of the study program Cybernetics is team scientific cooperation with other doctoral programs. The program is closely related to the scientific activities of teachers, trainers and subject guarantors who are scientifically active, especially at the Department of Cybernetics and Biomedical Engineering, the Department of Applied Mathematics, the Department of Informatics and others. Creative scientific activity at departments throughout the faculty is managed through professional scientific groups, many of which are closely related to the study program Cybernetics: eg Industrial Automation and Control Computers, Biomedical Engineering, Measurement and Sensors, Applied Statistics and Probability and more. These groups are motivated by the faculty to regularly produce high-quality scientific results, whether they are results in major impact journals, appearing in recognized world databases (WoS, Scopus) or application outputs in the form of patents. This testifies to the close connection of the doctoral program with the active scientific activities of teachers and trainers, as well as the close connection and connection of the Cybernetics program with other doctoral programs, such as Computational and Applied Mathematics, Informatics, Communication Technology, etc.
