Program Description

Each specialisation includes a set of compulsory subjects, which provides core knowledge and skills. A range of common elective subjects complement the core knowledge with flexibility and selected career paths in modern, dynamic, and converging technology sector. Each graduate will gain practical experiences from project-based collaboration with industry.


The students have opportunities to take part in significant research projects or be involved in cooperation projects with industry (e.g. 5G/IoT smart systems, sensorics, biomedical applications, material quality measurement, production technology development, etc). The projects and teams are often interdisciplinary, combining electronics communication, automation, mechatronics, both hardware and software.

The research and study areas are situated in modern facilities and are equipped with modern computers, software, measurement equipment and tools that provide excellent opportunities for the students to either study or conduct research. Students of the IT-field are offered practical placement and job opportunities in Estonia or abroad already during the studies which provide professional experience in the field.

Why this programme?

  • Develops high-level skills in aspects of semiconductor, embedded electronics and communication technology.
  • Teaching staff are specialists in the field and involved in key research projects.
  • Project-based practice with industry.
  • Programme enhances and broadens your career opportunities in the rapidly changing communicative electronics industry.

Future career

IT industry requires specialists, who have the knowledge and skills to rapidly develop and enhance smart production processes, smart products and smart business models. This means creating complex autonomous systems that collect, exchange and process data, have the capability to efficiently adapt to the changes in the operational environment. Electronics converts different phenomena and processes in the real world to meaningful digital data. Communication makes this data available to the user (both human and machine).

The rapid development of new technologies and concepts to employ them provides graduates of Communicative Electronics a wide range of job opportunities ranging from innovation start-ups to international corporations.


Students for TalTech international study programmes are admitted based on the admission threshold. Online interviews will be conducted only to candidates who have passed the preliminary evaluation. The maximum score for the online interview is 10 points. An applicant who receives a minimum of 5 points is admitted.
