Description

Advertisement

The Telecommunications master study programme aims at giving students the necessary competences for independent work in industry and research in the area of contemporary communication technologies, which are emerging with the convergence of classical telecommunications, computer and information technologies. The material covered by the programme, therefore, spans from the physical foundations of telecommunications to software issues. The optional subjects enable the students to focus their study either on hardware or software, or to get more knowledge either on system issues, networks, or services.

The fundamental goals of the Telecommunications master study programme are:
· to provide students with in-depth knowledge of the basic principles of telecommunications,

· to provide students with in-depth technical knowledge of telecommunications systems, networks and services,

· to allow students to specialise in the areas of telecommunications of their choice,

· to qualify students for independent research, development, evaluation, testing and use of conceptual solutions, methods and products in familiar and unfamiliar circumstances,

· to prepare students for continued and successful search and use of new sources of knowledge in their professional, research and development activities,

· to qualify students to effectively and ethically work in groups and take responsibility for conducting group work and complex work systems,

· to qualify students to successfully document and report on their professional, research and development activities,

· to encourage students to take part in the international academic, professional and scientific community,

· to qualify students for life-long learning and continuation of their study in a doctoral programme.

Subject-specific competences gained with the programme:

a) profound knowledge and understanding of the transmission principles for information in different forms (data, voice, images, etc.),

b) in-depth technical knowledge of telecommunications systems, different kinds of networks and services that can be offered in them,

c) ability to independently work in the areas of selection, design and development of specific kinds of hardware (e.g. transmission media, communication electronic circuits, transmission systems, network nodes, terminal equipment) and/or software (e.g. communications protocols, image and speech processing, user services and applications), needed in telecommunications,

d) ability to independently use the principles, methods and tools for analysis, planning and/or management in the above mentioned areas of telecommunications,

e) ability to follow and understand the novelties in principles, technological approaches, devices and services in the area of communication technologies, ability to use them, and ability to contribute one´s own innovative development and research ideas,

f) knowledge of the most important state-of-the-art professional and, respectively, scientific literature for a chosen narrow area of communication technologies,

g) ability to work independently in industry and enterprise.
