Full-time, 2nd cycle studies are three semester long and finish with a presentation of a Master Thesis. The graduate is awarded a Master of Science degree.
At this stage of education the student follows one of the specializations: Teleinformatics Systems and Equipment, Sensors and Microsystems, Networks and Services. The graduates acquire theoretical knowledge and practical skills indispensable for designing, manufacturing, implementing and exploiting circuits, devices, electronic systems, telecommunications systems, networks and services. This study programme aims at specifying the current and future electronic and telecommunications techniques with the use of new technologies and computer tools as well as the development of these technologies and production of tools. In the first phase of studies the student gains a theoretical background in basic subjects, whereas the disciplinary and specialist subjects are introduced in the second phase of studies. During the first semester (uniform for all specializations) the students acquire supplementary knowledge in basic theoretical subjects (Mathematics, Stochastic Processes, Numerical Methods, Optimization Methods) and in major courses (Fibre Optics and Photonics, Programmable Logic Devices, Electromagnetic Compatibility, Information Theory and Coding, Security of Information Systems, Reliability and Diagnostics, Telecommunication Networks Design). The specialist education is conducted according to various programmes elected at the second stage of full-time studies. Graduates are also prepared for team management, and are offered the 3rd cycle of studies (doctoral research).
The syllabus of Electronics and Telecommunications: Sensors and Microsystems includes specialist compulsory and elective subjects such as designing and techniques of the microsystem development, light pipe technique, semi-conductive microsensors, photovoltaics and renewable energy sources, design of electronic equipment based on CAD and CAM systems, nanoelectronics, electronic editing, testing systems, analogue COMS systems based on VLSI technique, spintronics, vacuum techniques, production and research methods of thin-layer structures. The graduates of this discipline are familiarized with the equipment and standards for microsystems, sensor circuits as well as thin-layered nanoelectronic structures. They acquire ability to design and construct equipment.
