Master study program specializations


Specialization in microelectronics, nanoelectronics and integrated optics. Practical knowledge of the methodology of design, realization, and verification of electronic components and complex electronic systems, principles of analog and digital integrated circuits, sensors, microsystems, and actuators. The graduate will find work in all areas of applied electronics.

Audiovisual technique and signal processing

Specialized in the acquisition, processing, and reproduction of audiovisual signals. Practical knowledge in the field of design and measurement in acoustics, image and sound techniques and orientation on modern methods of processing, compression and reconstruction of image, sound and other signals. The specialization as well on human perception, as the recipient of audiovisual information. Graduates will find employment in a wide range of areas, from television and radio, AV technology and acoustics, through automotive to special biomedical applications.


Specialization in photonics, lasers, fiber and integrated optics, optical networks, optical transmissions, processing and reconstruction of optical signals. Practical knowledge of design and advanced measurement techniques of planar integrated optics, optical sources, fiber optic systems, optical communication infrastructures, hyperspectral systems, and image photonics including imaging and scanning systems. The graduate will find application in the field of communication technology, sensors, and others.

The technology of the Internet of Things

Specialization integrates knowledge from electronics (design of systems including sensors) with knowledge of communication technology, especially wireless technologies (sensor networks) within the Internet of Things – IoT. Students will learn not only to design components but also to connect and integrate them into large networks. Graduates will find work in intelligent electronic systems, design, and implementation of applications for smart home, city, and industry.

Communication networks and Internet

The specialization focuses of communication networks and the Internet as complex systems forming an integral part of the field of information and communication technologies (ICT) while respecting specific features and common features of telecommunication, mobile, computer and industrial networks, the Internet, Internet, access networks and data center infrastructure The special attention is also paid to fully optical networks, quality of service, cybersecurity and diagnostics, and graduates are well-established with electronic communications network operators, technology suppliers, and system solutions, in project and development departments of ICT companies.

Mobile communications

Mobile networks are the most dynamically developing part of the information and communication technologies (ICT) sector. This specialization provides both a system overview over the mobile cellular communications infrastructure, especially with regard to currently deployed and 5G and future technologies for mobile communications and wireless technologies as well as a detailed view of the radio access network including signal propagation, media access methods, channel coding (advanced modulation methods, anti-tampering, MIMO systems). Graduates will find work by mobile network operators, manufacturers and technology vendors, and wireless solutions.

Radio systems

Specialization in the design, diagnostics, and operation of all radio systems, subsystems and elements related to communication, navigation, radar or sensor technology. It provides deep knowledge of wireless technologies, antennas, signal propagation, digital communication, microprocessors, and microwave techniques. The field of study develops the ability to orientate in modern technologies and students’ autonomy in solving all technical problems they encounter in practice. Graduates have a wide range of applications in the rapidly expanding field of wireless communications and in a number of related fields.
