Qualification Requirements and Regulations
Qualification Requirements:
Finished secondary education with secondary school-leaving exam.
The Czech educational system is regulated by the Higher Education Act (Act 111/1998). Studies at VSB-TUO are regulated by the Statute of VSB – Technical University of Ostrava.
Profile of the Programme
The aim of the study is to educate graduates with theoretical knowledge in the field of communication and information technologies with broad practical skills and abilities, creative inventiveness and extensive possibilities of practical application. Another objective is to prepare university-educated personnel, especially with practical knowledge in the field of communication networks and their security, mobile networks, technical means of mobile devices and their software, signal processing, optical communications and . Graduates can go on to pursue a Master's degree in the same field.
Key Learning Outcomes
Key Lerning Outcomes are Expressed in following Structure: Knowledge, Skills, General competencies
The graduate knows and can apply in practice knowledge from various areas of communication and information technologies. All three specializations aim to provide students with a bachelor's level education with basic theoretical knowledge and practical skills in modern communications and information technology. The Communication Networks concentration is based on courses in communication technologies over metallic, optical and wireless media; optoelectronics and electronic subjects. The graduate will acquire basic knowledge especially in the field of fixed communications, and will become familiar with the means of modern networking and communication technologies (including the Internet of Things). Graduates of the Mobile and Radio Communications specialization will acquire basic knowledge and practical skills in the field of radio communication systems. They will also learn about end devices both in hardware and software terms, including the development of applications for these devices. Graduates of the Optical Communications and Sensors specialization will gradually acquire theoretical knowledge of the basic phenomena in optics (geometric, wave and quantum). Attention will also be paid both theoretically and practically to the field of optical communication systems, safety and measurement issues in communication systems, and the basics of fiber-optic sensors and sensor systems.
The graduate is able to independently design and implement small-scale works, especially using known and proven procedures and technologies. He/she can understand the problems of large-scale systems and as a member of the solution team can independently implement their individual parts. Can justify and document the chosen solution procedures. Graduates of the Communication Networks specialization can navigate future networks, manage and configure computer networks, communicate securely in cyberspace, transmit data over cable and air, protect important data, and process and transmit audio and video. Graduates of the Mobile and Radio Communications specialization will be able to apply their skills in mobile application development, transmit data over 5G networks, navigate the Internet of Things (IoT), understand radio signals and networks, and, for example, create their own sensor network. Graduates of the Optical Communications and Sensors specialization can apply their skills in light communication and measurement, designing an optical network, using sensors in Industry 4.0 and creating a sensor network with optical fibers.
General competencies:
The teaching is oriented so that the student gains the ability to work independently and solve issues related to the field of Communication and Information Technology, is able to create presentations on selected issues of the field and is able to present them independently. On the basis of the acquired knowledge and skills, the student is capable of further study in subsequent disciplines. The graduate is able to communicate with other team members or customers in specifying assignments, solving problems and delivering product.
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples
Graduates of this study programme meet the current needs of businesses. It has added value in the labour market thanks to its ability to solve practical tasks in the field of terminal equipment, network technologies, and to handle practical issues of mobile and optical communication networks. The graduate's employment is wherever there is a need to deal with data transmission and processing and other basic tasks in the field of Communication and Information Technology. The graduate will find employment on the labour market, for example, as a specialist, designer, administrator, administrator and service technician of ICT, optical and mobile networks or mobile application programmer.
