Telecommunications

 

The study programme of Telecommunications has existed in the School since its foundation in 1961. In the meantime, the curriculum and syllabus have been greatly modernized, naturally following the development of telecommunications and other engineering disciplines. If you bear in mind that at the time the School was founded commercial integrated electronics was in its infancy, optical fibers were the theory, PC computers did not exist, and mobile telephony was in the domain of science fiction, it is clear what kind of changes the curriculum had to undergo. In this School, we have always tried to get our students acquainted with all innovations in the profession and to prepare them for further technological advances, which will inevitably come in the future.

 

 

The purpose of this study programme is to train students in the field of telecommunications so as to be able to perform the following jobs: maintenance and exploitation of telecommunication equipment (switching and transmission systems), administration of computer networks, design and administration of databases, maintenance of optical telecommunication devices, design of Web sites on the Internet, the jobs of administrators in e-business and programmers of up-to-date applications and the jobs related to electronic media, especially television i.e. technical jobs in a TV studio.

The objective of the study programme of Telecommunications is to enable students to master the skills of using the telecommunication measuring equipment, basic software tools and specialized applications.

All courses are divided into compulsory and elective groups of courses. Compulsory courses, most of them are offered at the first year of studies, are technical and basic telecommunication courses, representing something that future vocational engineers of electrical and computer engineering (the 1st level of vocational studies) simply must know. Besides that, there is a group of general education courses, which are also compulsory ones, and which provide knowledge and skills necessary to young professionals both for future advancement in the profession and for good performance in real working environments.

Elective courses represent a category that provides students with the possibility of additional professional orientation, making the study programmes generally very flexible. By choosing elective courses according to their interests, students can opt for a narrow field of science as their future profession.

 

The first recommendation for the choice is a whole group of courses which master state-of-the-art telecommunications: computer networks (classic, new generation networks and convergent technologies – all over IP), optical telecommunications, mobile and wireless telecommunications, television, etc.


If someone wants to expand his knowledge outside the field of telecommunications, we offer a group of elective courses in the field of computing. Our students can acquire basic knowledge of network administration, databases and Web design.



Modular models and highly sophisticated measuring equipment enable the performance of a large number of different practical assignments, adapted to elective courses within the study programme of Telecommunications.
