Graduate's skills

The graduates with the engineer degree have the ability to specialize and adapt to the needs of practice and research, has the ability to continuously amplify knowledge in the field. The graduate finds his job as a creative worker in a research field, technical development area and design. He is also able to design theoretically demanding works and he can implement them as an individual, member or leader of the research team. He can choose a suitable procedure and suitable technologies for the demanding solution. In non-standard situations, he can modify appropriately commonly used procedures. He is able to compare and evaluate different procedures. He is able to defend the proposed solution in a professional discussion with academic staff and workers from industrial practice. Thanks to the student’s involvement in the projects and grants coming out from industrial practice, the graduate will be able to find both practical solutions applicable in practice and theoretical background related to work in the laboratory with simulation tools.

Graduates of the Communication Networks can apply their skills in the design, implementation and operation of communication networks and services as well as in all areas of data, telecommunications, radio and information technology applications. He will acquire knowledge and skills that will allow him to work independently in teams in solving projects in various fields of electronic communications.

Graduates of the Mobile and Radio Communications specialization are able to apply their skills in the field of design, implementation and radio networks and services operation. He can design large scale works (e.g. software products in the mobile networks environment) and implement them as a member or as a leader of the research team.

Graduates Optical Communications and Sensors can apply their skills in the design, implementation and operation of optical networks and services. He can design large networks, solve problems and disruptions caused by the operation of fibre networks and systems. Deep theoretical knowledge will enable him to work in the research and development of new measurement and monitoring fibre-optic and optical sensor systems.

Career paths

Graduate's knowledge

The graduates can apply knowledge in practice and perform analysis in various areas of communication and information technologies and the field of soft skills. All three specializations aim to provide an engineer education with a deeper theoretical foundation as well as practical knowledge of modern communication and information technology.

The Communication Networks specialization focuses on the subjects of optoelectronics, electronics, and the technologies of communication through metallic, optical, and wireless media. The graduates will gain knowledge, especially in the field of fixed communications, means of modern network technologies, a wide range of communication services (including Internet technologies), sensory low-energy networks, security methods, or high-speed multimedia transmissions. The course will also focus on the design and implementation of computer networks as well as various information techniques with the possibility of specializing in the digital processing of speech, music, and video signals.

The graduates of the Mobile and Radio Communications specialization will gain in-depth knowledge and practical skills in the field of mobile radio-communication systems. They will also understand in more detail the problematics of end devices both in terms of hardware and software, including the design of applications for these devices.

The graduates of the Optical Communications and Sensors specialization will gain in-depth theoretical knowledge and practical skills in both optical communications and applications of the new technological direction, which are fiber-optic sensors. The graduates will learn the design of fiber communication systems and can solve problems related to the physical layer of fiber-optic networks. They will comprehend data processing methods, transmission security, and skills related to fiberless communications in urban and rural areas along with communications in white light. The graduates will know the design and construction of fiber-optic sensors, especially based on Bragg gratings, interferometers, intensity, and polarimetric sensors. They will understand fiber-optic and optical solutions for measuring and monitoring quantities significant in industrial and human applications such as temperatures, pressures, forces, electrical and magnetic quantities, speeds, vibrations, etc.
